    Old Giant... something

    Hi all. Anyone have an idea what the heck this Giant might be? Strange oldschool logo and basically useless pics. Exage components.
    I figure 80s based on the font, but that's all I've got. Google...

    All issues of comfort and cost aside, from an artistic perspective that is a remarkable piece. Excellent concept, workmanship, and attention to aesthetic detail.

    In his defense (can't believe I'm coming to his defense) I think the chain adjustment is listed as a need, not as a done.

    Left hand for FD, right hand for RD, and I'm in the "I'll hydrate when I stop" club 90% of the time. On the rare occasions that I drink while in motion, I think I use my right.

    I've found that 5-hour energy is good for stuff like staying alert during long drives or getting through the last few hours of a double shift at work. I can't imagine trying to use it to power an...

    I really like my DVS/Cinelli "Luster." (Not those horrible grey/blue things. The black ones.) The cover for the laces is great for clips and straps, and the sole is stiff but walkable.

    My bikes only ever get to a point where they're done*, with an asterisk. That means everything I originally set out to do has been handled, but I reserve the right to make future changes as I see fit.

    I put mustache bars on my old Schwinn Racer and I like them a lot. Obviously not as many hand positions as drops, but I haven't found it to be a problem. I stayed with the original stem though, which...

    In my limited experience I've found too small is much more forgiving than too big. My Tempo is, according to conventional fitting, "a little small" for me. It's a 21" (53.3cm), and I'm 5'10. I've had...

    Three reasons:
    1. Aesthetics. The old bikes just look better. Better lines, classier paint schemes. Most newer road bikes look like the bastard offspring of a stealth bomber and a roadside...
