This is a 1987 Ross Centaur that I picked up after someone left it in the trash. I added an alloy seat post and saddle, added new bar tape, tires and cables, and replaced the totaled rear derailer with a Shimano Exage 300. This bike has 27' wheels, a chromoly frame, Shimano SIS index shifter mounted on downtube braze-ons. The original brake levers were Shimano, non-aero with turkey wings. I replaced them with a spare set of Shimano RX100 aero levers. Ross is known for its entry level bikes. This one is pretty nice for an entry level bike. Probably nicer than most Ross bikes. But still not a Signature!
