I have them on my retro MTB and road bikes. I'm happy with them - no idea if they are actually good or bad, but they are old. And IMHO cool.
I do have a modern MTB for serious riding though.

Its an 88 and should have suntour 3040 accushift drive train kit, diacompe brakes and sugino cycloid cranks with oval rings. Its an excellent entry into the world of retro bike.

always rather liked the 88 courier.

Welcome to the site.

If you really want to be period specify you'll have to paint that fork white too. ;-) Never understood why they didn't paint it purple like the front of the bike.

Cycloid - now there's a word I haven't heard for years.
