The 700x32 Stampede Pass tires are silky smooth performers and the ride is fast and very comfortable.



this is sucha beautiful, classic-looking cross bike. Really, a perfect example of a great, rideable steelie & classicly unbeatable parts!

I think that was a one year deal where they made bike tubes with it, it's popular for golf clubs. I'm planning on sending the hubs to PWB and have them re-laced with black Kinlin TB 20 tubular rims/DT Comp's. I already have some 23mm tanwall Challenge Elite pro tires for it, I think that will look sharp.

Post yours up.

I built one of those, in red/yellow/black/white. Some guy read a review and said it wasn't a great bike. With light wheels and a 9-sp 105 group, and a carbon FSA crankset, it was great(ly) underrated.

Remembering the Giant MCR, one of the first truly aero road bikes that ripped up the UCI rule book

Mine’s a work in progress as I make some mods to this ‘91 Serotta Colorado 2 built up in ‘93 with Campagnolo Record 8speed.

So far I’ve changed out the 3T Prima 280 bars for Soma Hwy One and threw on some crazy Cycology bar tape. I also replaced tubes with Ridenow TPU 38g. I’m awaiting a new saddle and a layback post, and then I’ll “stick a fork in it” and call it done. I think.

I don't use integrated shifters, but the mods have in the past banned my bike from C&V because it's 9-speed. So here's a picture. I've since re-adjusted the saddle a bit more forward.

Super clean SC. Must say that there are plenty of bikes in the main C&V section which are 9spd (or 10, or 11, or...). And people can get banned, but not bikes.

Thank you.

By “banned,” I mean banished. A thread I started about DA 7700 parts in C&V was banished to the wastelands of the Early Brifter forum.

Reading that banishment, index shifting is now approaching 39 years old.
there are plenty of riders who know nothing else.
I was in line waiting to order some food and a fellow patron was impressed with my bike, A 1984 Masi GC, he then asked what were those things one the downtube?
shift levers.
You have to reach all the way down there to shift? And FIND each gear?
He had recently purchased a bike with SRAM etap, used! Asked how the shifters talk to the derailleurs. There is a “coin” battery in the shifter, I think you fold the hood to access.

there is the future.

I put New Dura Ace (7400) on my Caylor race bike in 1984. Fantastic SIS and six gears in a five gear frame ! ! I still have that bike with that group and it still works just fine.

Dialing in this bike now. Working on getting the bars in the correct position- I’m not used to this style/shape of bars. I’m thinking the drops should be parallel to the ground vs the bar tops. I’ve moved them some since I took this picture.

The seat is setback pretty far on the bike, been adjusting it on each ride.

The ride with 28mm tires is smooth as silk. No vibration, no road buzz - other than weight, I'm not sure how much "better" my newer bikes actually are.

I can’t take any credit…

Old owner kept it pristine, and the bike was actually a Christmas present from a relative.

Im going to ride the wheels off of it.
