Dave I bought it from a guy who brought it back from a trip to Japan this year. It is used and has some minor scrapes. I hope to get a few more details as to whom he purchased it from, it is differant from a few export models I have seen... Cant wait to ride it!
Very nice indeed.Steve Young

That's a beautiful bike. Let us know how it rides when you get a chance to get out on it. Steve.

Is that the Montana State Grizzlies?
I was one guy who e-mailed you about getting pedals. Did you go with toe cages? or clip ins?

Id think that with the pedal setup you have, I'd go with some nice straps and cages from

Good luck!

Hey, Close on the name I am a University of Montana,grizzlies(Missoula) Alumni. Montana State are the Bobcats. The pedals I have are stamped specialized but are made by MKS I believe. I have some straps but am going to the cronometro swap in Madison next month and will look for anything track related. I will look at businesscycles. Thanks
my Sugino 75's should be here tonight!hayaku
