This has been my racing bike since 1991, I rode it in over 50 century rides before competing in National and California Championships, and at least 30 Criterium races since 1991. I have upgraded the fork with a competition Wound Up stiff carbon fiber fork. I upgraded the cranks with Dura Ace and have maintained the bike for racing for all those years. This bike is race bred and one of the first to have carbon fiber main tubes on the top, seat, and down tubes. the main tubes are all connected via aluminum fittings for the head set, seat post clamp, chain stays, and seat stays. Light Aluminum Alloy racing handle bars, FSA setback seat post, Mavic SUP racing wheels, Continental Attack/Force racing tires. 18 speed
