I am so glad this is a good bike. I cannot wait to try it out tomorrow. If it fits well I can switch out the wheels and replace the saddle with a Brooks Cambium.

That would be a cool addition!!!

I believe it is 84 or 85.
I would need to go to my storage unit and check.

For whatever reason I tried to corner the market on mid 80's grey 58 cm trek's. I have 4 or 5 of them.

Thank you...

Saddle Bags

Love them!!

They are larger than the Brooks I use.
But not so large as to be distracting.
The Brooks can fit only tire tools, a spare tube, and precious little else.

Very Nice!!!
