    Yeah. I changed over not to long ago when I got some new shoes. Like them but took awhile to get used to them.

    It was a mistake one of the bike shops here made but they did the right thing and made it right. Happy about that for sure. Sad the old frame was sent back to specialized to be destroyed.

    Pretty interesting. Guess they are trying to match garmin product for product. I’ve like my element bolt head unit. Made that switch this summer too.

    They also got smart and decided to use some of Garmin's products. This is from their firmware update page. Don't know of anyone who has used a Bolt with a Varia but according to their support page, it works the same on the Bolt as it does on any of the Garmins.

    BOLT WB15-5027 - 26 August, 2019

    Pic during service, owned for a few years. Believe to be 1987 Fuji Roubaix. New sealed bb, seat, levers, original otherwise. Can anyone confirm if model year is 1987? Has 105 components

    ^^^ Best guess, 1986 because of the downtube shifters and derailleur.

    I certainly love it. Came with the bike and for now no intention to change it.

    OK I finally got a road bike. Because it was the price I was willing to pay for a road bike, $0.00. 1993 Bianchi Campione. It's alright. IMG_0112.jpeg

    The list serve post said "come get it, needs work and front wheel" but there was a wheel sitting next to the bike and it just needed trueing, brake adjustment, cobweb removal.

    Of course I put a couple hundred in it. Stem, handlebar, saddle, lights, new tape. And some stuff I already had, tires, pedals, top tube bag, pump. So maybe three hundred, hard to say. :D IMG_0079.jpeg

    Handles good. I would say quick, reponsive. Feels fast. I was under the impression that Bianchi reserves this color for their high end bikes. Actually this color is used on racing bikes. This was an entry level racer. In 1993 it retailed for $680. So it's nothing fancy. Shimano RX100 gruppo. The seven speed indexed shifting works flawlessly, sure and solid. Braking is good. I'm still getting used to it, only 161 miles so far. I'm not totally confident to throw it into corners at speed yet. Previous owner put a Surly fork on it, I think so he could use a treadless headset. (No evidence of front end collision which is often the reason for fork replacement). The fork seems well matched to the frame. It has a 1 inch steerer.

    Very nice! And the best part is the price.
