All that midrange '80s stuff was pretty decent, in my experience!
Owner & co-founder, Cycles René Hubris. Unfortunately attaching questionable braze-ons to perfectly good frames since about 2015. With style.

The Golden Age of Shimano, From around 87 on, near every mtn group was a solid performer. Even inexpensive ones. (once Uniglide was whittled down)

Exage 300, often found with the elusive 40t Biopace chainring in 130 BCD.

You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

(looking for a picture and not seeing it? Thank the Photobucket fiasco.PM me and I'll link it up.)
