SpeedofLite Chorus has turned out to be one of my favorite groups, I enjoyed the read....now if we only had a time machine, not for bike parts, but to be a little younger.
Best, Ben

Love the Chorus crankset and pedals on my Miyata.


In full disclosure, those are Victory pedals in the pic, but they've been replaced with Chorus.

Yes, but only if I could retain the knowledge I have now.
Otherwise, there's a lot of stuff I don't want to go through again.

You are right about that....but even so, it still would be fun.

A longer article reviewing the Chorus gruppo in the very next issue (Dec 1987).
I must have missed it when I looked ahead.
Mi dispiace.

Love these old write ups, @SpeedofLite. Thanks for taking the time.
