Same Exage 500 CX on my '92 Univega, 30/40/50 triple chainring, 12-32 8-speed cassette. Still works but if I needed to replace it I'd go for something like the Shimano Deore mentioned above.

The more I look at these swoopy frames, the more I'm convinced they need to be turned into the bicycle equivalent of Big Daddy Roth's Rat Fink hot rods.

Website based in Spain, formerly Biciclįsica, started in 2010, about the same time as the blogger we all know and miss. No apparent connection. Not sure when they renamed the site.
