snip . . .

As far as I have been able to determine, The 29X series Signatures are Taiwan imports built to a price point depending on component level. See price sheets below.





Distributor Price lists:
Dec 27, 1982


November 1, 1983


September 1, 1984



October 1, 1984. Notice the price split between the 29X series, and the "real" handbuilt Signature frames.



March 25, 1985. Again, note the pricing difference between the 29X series and "real" handbuilt Signature frames.
Thanks for these catalogs and prices. The shop I worked in during the 80s sold Ross bikes. We sold few--very few--of the Tom Kellog signature bikes. They were (and are) terrific bikes.
