Tell me about my bike - Univega ViaTech 1050bimini

It is an ebay bargin I got a year and a half ago and I have put a lot of miles on it and like the bike. (I race it and I do okay, one 2nd place this year in a Cat 5 race)

It appears to be a mid 90's bike. Low end campy on it (I have upgraded a couple of parts).

The unique thing about the bike is the front triangle is alluminum and the rear stays are steel. The fork is steel also.

I am familiar with Univega, but not familiar with this particular bike. Does anyone know anything about it.

I have a Univega hybrid bike, but don't know anything about the ViaTech other than it was an early to mid-90s bike that no longer is made. Univega was putting a lot into their bikes for the buck during that time and they were darn good bikes. Mine has thousands of miles on it and has been touring many times and simpy refuses to wear out.
