-Ashley Wright, writing on Sheldon Brown's "Harris Cyclery"
This bicycle is 59 cm center-to-top. It is in like-new condition. We even have the original owner’s manual!
It has braze-ons on either side of the forks for the centerpull brakes to attach--this feature is not often found in production bikes, and it decreases arm flex as the brake grabs the wheel. The calipers and levers are Dia-Compe.
This bike has a SR Apex triple crank with a half-step between the first two rings, and a "granny gear" for serious touring. By the way, Gary Fisher says "Someone gave a lot of thought to this bike."
This bicycle has a SunTour Cyclone rear derailleur and SunTour bar end shifters. These were top of the line in the height of SunTour awesomeness. These components could go up against any other company's components from the same year (yes, SunTour is a great component company. Read their story here).
This bicycle is in like-new condition. The vintage saddle will be exchanged for a new Brooks B17.
