The frameset was probably built between 1989 and 1991. I began working in a bike shop in 1992 and bought the frameset from there in 1993. Stowe bikes were handbuilt by Robert Stowe and Dale DuRoss in upstate New York under a company called Phase 3 Cycles. I am not sure how long they produced frames for.

I just finished upgrading to a full Shimano Ultegra 6600 10 speed STI group with Chris King/DT Swiss wheels. The original build was a full Shimano Ultegra 600 6400 8 Speed STI group. The only reason I upgraded was because the original right STI lever died after 12 years of use.

thanks for the info on stowe bikes. never heard of them until someone brought one to me. mine's bright. i don't think i'll need lights on it at night. i was told mine was made in the mid to late 80's. does that seem about right? it has mostly shimano 600 components and made of prestige tange tubing. thanks for any info,
