Nishiki came out with the Olympic 12 about late 1977- early 78, Centurion was quick to market trends, I would not be surprised of a mid cycle change to 6.

The Niko bikes (Bikecology house brand) actually came out with the color co-ordinated cable housings, tape, saddle coverings first, Centurion was quick to respond- so quick that we felt there was corporate espionage.

it was a competitive time.
