Killer bikes.

On a whim, I bought a '92 (I think) DB Expert TG from a bike shop for $239; he was ridding himself of used bikes.
I have no idea what the tubing was, just said ChroMo on it, and 23" for the size. Nice lugged frame in champagne.
What I quickly realized was that it had a 3x7 Shimano RSX group on it, with STI shifters, a compact 48/38/26 setup.
The hubs were either Exage or non-Shimano, but that bike would have served me well on some hilly group rides.
I moved the group to my brother-in-law's Lemans RS, and when the shifters finally gave up, I sent them for rebuild.
The frame ended up as a bike messenger's ride in Quebec, and it lasted an entire year, which is unusual up there.
