But certainly some people hate the unicrown fork on any bike, so for them it's 100% "low grade"
I think thatís a really fine bike, imo newer than 1984. I think thatís like OS or a larger diameter tubing. I donít remember any speed bikes with unicrown until the Ď90s

Two Trek frames in Alpha SLR aluminium. Often underrated the Trek SLR aluminium frames punch way above their league and were handbuilt in the USA unlike the nowadays chinese or taiwanese made Domane and Emonda which aren't necesserilary better than them

@Robvolz - your 2nd Japanese bike?
Well I have tried 4 times contacting this seller with offers and I have yet to get a response. Anyone else had any luck? Seeing VGC Santana Tandems selling fequently in the <$500 range its hard to know what this is really worth? But I guess it doesnt matter if the seller wont respond. SMH

The wheels are definitely lowergrade replacements, but this still looks like a good deal for $60 Ann Arbor Mi on Marketplace, listed 21 hours ago. It's a '90 or '91 and has those cool Suntour Command shifters.

I was just looking at that one, as I've been kinda curious lately about touring. Do you know if there is any particular strengths/weaknesses vs other tourers such as Miyata 1000, Centurion pro-tour, Univega Gran Turismo, etc? And those shifters, I have not heard of them, how do they compare to bar-end shifters?

Welcome to the forums! Well the Volpe isn't a true touring bike it more of an all arounder for "credit card" touring (no camping gear) it's OK but the geomentry isn't really the same as a true touring. The Volpe was meant to be something you could do fun group rides, commute, train and even do some "gravel grinding" as they call it now.

The only downfal with this particualr bike it the missing wheels and the Suntoru 7speed freewheel it shoud have. Other than some test rides I've never really used the Command shifters but a lot of people like them, and unlike barend shifters you don't need to take your hands off the brake hoods.

You might be able to get the AccuShift (indexing) to work with a shimano 7spd cassette wheel, I had a Suntour Sprint RD and shifters that really worked well a few years ago.
