Keep this new saddle away !!!!!
I'm looking for a better saddle, but not willing to pay half the price I payed for the complete bike.
Too old for a Flite...needs a Turbo.
A flite is always a good answer : the first flite (grey) were sold in the end of 1990, and in the beginning of 1991. The bike was sold with the avocet if I remember…
For the gearing… change all the cable and (sleeve ?).
If you have "push push "-STI system, change for "thumbshifter". The STI system has never work…
Regarding the gearing, I noticed that the last curve near the rear derailleur is the troublemaker. The cable makes a rather short loop there. But when I look at the pictures from the bike in the '91 catalogue it looks the same there. The cables are in a really good shape, so for the time being I see no point in changing them.
And yes it has the push-push shifters and you are right the are not nice to work with.
But for now I want to keep it as orginal as possible, Maybe I'm gonna change the rear gear cable, and make a longer loop at the bottom.
Thanks for the tips.
