: ) I've inspected and tested a bike with RX-100 shimano STI gruppo, and convinced a buddy of mine to buy the bike..

though the frame is alloy, the groupset-handlebar is quite classy looking imho..

of course when he showed the bike to the sellers in the LBS, they laughed at him, trying to convince him that the whole setup doesn't worth a penny, and it's like "thousand years out of production.."

well, here are some pics, judge for yourselves!

also I've managed to put my hands on that classic ATB, bianchi araneus.. cromor offroad tubing, deore xt gruppo, including headset, pedals, brakes.. etcetera.. : )

Life's good..

Nice bike!

How typical of a modern shop to scoff... my friend took her original '70s Raleigh 20 in for a new tyre, they fitted a BMX item and couldn't figure out how to reconnect the Sturmey-Archer hub gears. Have these loons never heard of eBay and Sheldon Brown? And to top it all, she punctured on way back from the shop - the new tyre split :o
