condition: good
make / manufacturer: Univega
model name / number: Super Strada

I've been riding this bike for about seven or eight years as a commuter. I built it from the frame up. I'm going down to a slightly smaller frame.

I bought the bare frame on eBay from somewhere in Connecticut, and can live with the 58, but I'm much more comfortable on a 55-56. Finally got around to sourcing the new frame so this one is for sale.

This was the top of the line Univega in the mid '80s, And would have had full Dura Ace components. Model is Super Strada. Frame built by Miyata.

This ad is for the frame & fork only, but I'm open to selling the bike as built or portions of it. It has a Dura-Ace 74XX group set (except for the Rocket chainrings, barcon shifters, brake levers, modern wheels, and 10-speed cassette and chain).

Really cool fork crown and integrated seat stay binder bolt.

I'm using handlebar shifters, but this originally had Suntour downtube levers that mount to a boss on the top side of the downtube. It was a pretty cool design. Had an erratic cam between the two levers so that as you adjusted your rear derailleur, it would automatically trim the front to keep chain line in sync. I do have a set of these levers and they are available too.

Rear spacing: I'm running a modern 130mm wheelset but did NOT cold set the frame. It was probably designed for a 126 though.

Seat tube is 23" CTC, top tube is 23 CTC, downtube is 25.5, and head tube is 5. I am 5'10 with a 30-in inseam and long arms. You'd want to be a little bit taller than me.
