I bought this bike in 2005 for pennies on craigslist and then slowly went nuts. The frame is a lovely no-name 57cm lugged steel beauty from Taiwan R.O.C. (with a lovelier headbadge) powder coated to match its original color. Not much else remains from the cotter-cranked behemoth that she once was. The frame lacks the eyelets one seeks in a true touring bike, although the geometry is spot on. It fits me so well that if I ever were to get a custom frame i'd just copy this one. Today she sports Super Relax Concept livery and is as pleasant for a beer run as a 5000km trek. If you have any information about FMSA cycles, get in touch!
