"Arrested Development" - What bike is Michael riding?

Arrested Development - amazing sitcom on Fox! The character "Michael" commutes on a red road bike -- does anyone know what kind of bike it is? I love knowing little bits of trivia like that, and it bugs me that I've never been able to get a good peak at the brand name.

Brilliant! I've found someone else who is asking exactly the same question as me! I thought I was the only person wierd enough to worry about Michael's bike! lol.

The best shot I know of is right at the start of Series 2, Episode 16. Michael comes through the front door and the bike is in full-shot. But unfortunately I don't think you can see the make...

It looks like an old road bike - possibly 80's, it has skinwall tyres and those 'Lyotard' style pedals, infact a lot of the equipment on it is very similar to a 1986 Raliegh Equipe that I own, the crankset looks to be of the typical cheap-ish pressed steel type.

Arrested Development is my favorite show of all time! I used this post as an excuse to watch that episode, then the whole season, but still couldn't figure out what the bike was.
