3 Blue Sports Touring bikes

I have no idea how I ended up with 3 blue sports touring bikes, but I did: a 1985 Cannondale ST 400, a 1979 Trek 510, and a 1970s Fuji Newest. Each is set up with a triple and 700 x 32c or 35c tires. I like how these bikes ride a lot.

All super nice bikes but I really like that Fuji. What size tires do you have on that bike?

Those are 32c but thereís room for 35c. Itís a fine long distance machine.

Our “His & Hers” Vent Noirs. Originally listed in the brochures as “fast touring” bikes but we’re still slow.

I go back and forth on whether or not this is a sports tourer. It is an 84 Paramount Touring but compared to its younger cousin (my 85 Schwinn Voyageur, which is definitely a touring bike) it is lighter and more responsive so it is sports touring for me.
