Otherwise, it looks pretty solid. Anyone have good luck swapping the 27 inch wheels for 700s? I have a really nice set of 700s available (both a six speed and a seven speed). The brakes appear to have very limited adjustment capability.



Interesting, that's the first early 80's Univega I've seen with cantilever brakes.
