Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear short shorts and crop tops.

WoW, he who shall not be named said that he vaguely remembered reading there was a geometry change in '89 and per his character he was right.
You'd think we'd know all there is to know about these vintage rides but we keep learning and yearning for more.

Centurion Ironman set up as a commuter. I bought the frame for $40, teal Ironman fork (spray-canned black) for another $20. Rebuilt with all new bb, hs, etc. and full RX100 group. Suntour Superbe wheels. It only has a rusty 6 speed freewheel, but that is 4 gears more than I need on a 5 mile flat commute

I donít know yetÖ Iím really hoping to feel some ďDave Scott magicĒ to occasionally extend my commute home from 5 miles to 15 or more. My previous fat-tired commuter was uninspiring and just sufficient to get me to the train station and back.
