Man this thing is killer, I love the versatility. I'm sure it rides great. Do you happen to know the color code on it?

Hard to believe you didn't crash. Your tires are on backwards!

This thing is so good.

Its GM Baroque Red, primarily used for Buicks i think.

Thanks all for the kinds words.

The ride was short, but the love was instant. I'm not good at verbalising bike feel, but the bike felt really stable, i was bombing down the clay/gravel road, faster than usual. the stability seems to come from a planted rear end, but the steering was responsive. it also feels really right standing out of the saddle.

Oh, And I can confirm: Reg Cage Derailleur, 12-30 cassette, shifted great!

We will see if I feel the same way in a month or 2. This thing checks all my boxes for a road bike.

Not a joke - point the "chevrons" in the direction of rotation...

Great, honest work

I had a Jeff Lyon touring frame that was very sweet. Sold it years ago to a guy who took it to tour Serbia.
Thanks for reminding me to be depressed about letting it go......

btw, can anyone remind me how to quote an above used
photo in my answer to a post?
