Yep they are, they come like that and as a grey coated / painted set as well. I used the grey ones on my Vitus but I sanded and polished them like these.

Sure look like it, state of the art in 1983-4 when Dad was building his poser bike.

I was surprised to see a pantographed seat stay on a bike such as this.

Europa fixie and Cannondale CAD2 R200 in the back. EDIT: Same one as the one I posted earlier.

And a Propel. I will say, free front wheel.

A Serotta with full Dura Ace. Shame about the bar tape.

Of course! Should have realized from the aero tube shape.

A nicely kept Giant Kronos. Pity about the mismatched rims.

Thats a Cadex. Carbon fork, but cant tell if it's the aluminium or carbon version frame.

Saw this on the way to uni at the local cafe. I think its a Bianchi Sport SS, almost like my one, but converted to single speed and it has a nice chrome fork.

And a cool fluro Aerolite. Thought it was a Lemond when he rides round the uni.

I like it too, especially since it is mine :mrgreen:

I bought it new in 1988, and it has been repainted twice since then.
It has done a lot of miles.
Only the Suntour crankset, shifters, and RD is original.
Top tube and down tube were replaced after tailending a car in 1991.
Originally it was all Japanese componentry on an Aussie made 531 frame.
And yes, the brakes are really good, but suspect that is more due to the Ultegras and tyres/pads rather than the nice Galli levers.

Thanks Steve, appreciate your comments !

And Yes, the Miyata is my usual transport to work.
It has better gear ratios to tackle the steep street near Guyatt Park etc.
Today there is a modern aluminium Fondriest parked there, it has modern 9-speed brifters.
Useful sometimes, but my passion is for the older bikes.
