One nice feature of the Cyclone is how the cable housing fits into the body so that the angle w.r.t. the parallelogram stays constant as the parallelogram moves.
Yes, that's the one. I would have preferred a vgt luxe, but you can't always get what you want.
I just love riding a vintage road bike. The smooth speed and quick response of the steel has to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I know.

My bikes: 58cm '72 Schwinn World Voyageur, 24" '79 Trek 930, 58cm '84 Schwinn Letour Luxe, with couplers, 61cm '92 Schwinn Paramount (Panasonic) [Incoming: 60cm '88 Centurion Ironman Expert, 24" '80 Trek 414]
I will buy no more bikes forever.
