Let's see your Ten Speed Drive Imports bike.

I got this at Tahoe bike shop in 1988. Bought just the frame, and built it up. Was working at Decision Bicycle in Gardnerville NV. Have a ton of miles on it with the Alta Alpine bike club. Raced juniors against Lance Armstrong on it. Never saw him. They moved him up to pro men the next day. Comfy bike. Let's see your TSDI, and story behind it. Have a good one everybody!

visited framebuilder Peter Johnson at his workshop in Redwood City, California on thirty June of 1994

he had all of these Guerciotti & other framesets from TSD hanging in his racks at the time

explained that he did the repair/warranty work on their frames which experienced failures or shipping damage

found it striking that they would think so highly of his work that they would ship repairs from FL to CA and back

Here's my Battaglin Cromor. I'm the third owner. It originally had Shimano 600 on it. Since then it's been 8-speed, 9-speed STI, single speed, etc... The only "original" part is the seat post - everything else has been changed at one point or another.



I bought it in 1996 from a kid on the Gold Coast who just passed the bar. Still have the ad from the Chicago Reader. I'm guessing it's from around 1987.
