This is a 1985 Fuji Espree, that began life as a drop-bar bike. VaLite tubing, Japanese-built, keeps it light and smooth. I switched to a Wald Touring bar and only kept the rear brake. The shifters are stem-mounted Shimanos, the rear derailleur is a Shimano Altus, as the original Suntour died. Continental 27x1 1/4 tires that I can actually run at about 75 psi. Brooks saddle, Control Tech (US made) seatpost.

Special thanks to Jake "Where's my seatpost?" Shafer at J & B in Dallas who sold me the bike.
