Frames and Framebuilding (1988) Nonferrous Frames -- Flexibility and Alignment

I bought a 1988 Bridgstone RADAC 2100 in 1989 while living on Oahu and had it until late last year when it was stolen out of our garage (the only bike they took out of four in the garage). I bought it as a follow-on to the 1987 Bridgestone Mile 112 that I bought when I moved to Oahu in late 1987. I really enjoyed riding the RADAC which was about 4 pounds lighter than my Bridgestone Mile 112.
