Would the grand prix be a good choice to keep? I am also in possession of a pair of 27" araya alloy rims identical to the ones on my miyata 310. Would the grand prix be just as light and strong as the suteki if i put the araya rims on it?
Just remember the Suteki is HEAVY, well mine at least. The grand prix would be a better daily rider than the suteki.
