Actually the Cyclone GT or later Mkll are the ones on my list for a recently acquired Trek that I want to run a 14-28 on. No hills where I live. Pretty Fuji.

I love that bag. Have one in red for 40 years on my old Schwinn. Try it out on one of your bikes.

Thanks Lynn

Got some from a member here. Nice Cinelli in 70mm. Finding a vintage TTT would be costly.

The GS with that front gap?

New to all this, but it seems that the max that the GS can handle must not be too much more. Perhaps those wider spaced chainrings were used with a different rear.

I like your gearing

I do like the gearing on your bike better. That looks like a triple on front, and quite a bit more range on the back than mine which is a 14-22.

They are clamped at shifters and at the seat tube. There is a braze-on at the chain stay so that the short metal outer cable casing has an anchor point.
