I love the 6207/6208 cranks. Absolutely timeless!

Today I finally completed the build of my mystery bike--a 1985 Bridgestone 400 in the very un-small 27" frame size, with a full complement of 7800 DA with 180mm 7400 cranks. I finally grew up a little and put 700x32 tires on a bike instead of the mostly 23c and 25c stuff I find for cheap. 32s were needed for this build as the bike is very large with larger clearances. I have had great experience with Bontrager Racelite Hardcases in 23c form, so I snagged some in 32c trim and they are fast rollers and supremely comfortable. The B17 saddle doesn't hurt either! The test ride was wonderful. Impossibly smooth bike with a quiet liveliness out of the saddle. The super long cranks let you just churn along in or out of the saddle. What a big fun and friendly bike--rapid, too. I'm going to enjoy it. And enjoy some indoor grain-tastic iPhone 4 photos.
