Ok an Atala World Championship Cyclocross bike from somewhere around '90.

Very nice touring bike. My tours tend to be credit card and less than two weeks so I don't need low riders. But I can mount them if necessary. That danged Phil llikes to camp and he's headed down the coast late summer again.

I just spent the last hour and a half taking the handlebars half apart, replacing the stem with the highrise model from Rivendell (God bless their store and keep it open). It allowed me to raise the bar up level with the saddle. This puts you more upright and the B17 Brooks is a great deal more comfortable that way.

Hmm, now I need to plan a tour.
