I've seen a number of these road bikes around campus at UNC. Mostly with grip shifters (!) and a two-piece drop bar with sleeve to join them, presumably necessary to get the grip shifters onto the bar since you couldn't push it around the drops.

Edit: Here are pictures of that generation of the bike, with the two-piece handlebar connected by a sleeve. I saw this on campus a few hours after initially writing this post.

Brifters and dual-pivot brakes are a def step up.

"c" is not a unit that measures tire width
