Hi Jack,

No I do not know the years for when that badge was used (I've not seen it on a bike). The other Hercules badge was used approximately 1948 - '70s, so it's hard to say. I believe it is...

Thanks for the insight, but I'm sure it's a lot of my fault for never having done that type of riding on an unknown trail; think I'll be doing a little more portaging of the bike next time. I have a...

I did check for "SLX" at the BB shell but no discernible "ridges" by sight or feel. I was going with the "SL" due to that, definitely a 27.2mm seat tube I.D.. It doesn't appear to have been...

I also have a habit of changing parts, just swapped saddle and post because I was happy with the set up on an aluminum frame. The "X" is my first and only Fondriest (hopefully not the last) and is...

How was your ride? Looks good with the "EVOL" stem, always liked their newer designs. I use the "Mutant" on many builds, but hard to find the quill type anymore. Here's a shot of my X-Status...

GT "SATURN" Team frame set

Actual Saturn team bike. I don't know if the frame design was unique to the pro team or also produced for retail sales. I'd assume the sizing is custom made for the rider (in this case Brian Walton)....

Bianchi Auto-Milano

I agree with whole heartedly about the testing out of this bike; I'll do a solid 10 miles on it before I loan it or give away.
