He regulalrly sells off spare team 'cross bikes at the end of cross season each year. Sachs without the wait. He posts them on VS

I know, I just have to deal with the price/space issue...both of which are, at this time, opposed to such a purchase. He also gets pretty good coin for those frames as I recall.

Some day

The road bike is an 83'...maybe an 84'. Serial number is hidden under the Ed Litton repaint.

Touring bike is all original...79'.

Here's my original, ordered by me in 1996, blue RS. I've changed the seat, handlebar tape and tires since this picture.

It looks white in this picture. Actually it it cream. I think Richard's red is a great color. BUT, I tend to march to a different drummer and not follow the crowd, thus the blue which is based on an old Eddy Merckx advertisement from the 80's.

Agree with everything you just said...I like things different than the standard, and your blue/cream combo works. I'm not very good with color and thought cream was a shade of white.





So this is apropos of nothing, but this is my favorite drop out:
