Other Notes
When it was new, the basic Team model fit into the lineup below the DX-4000 model and sort of on par with the DX-3000 if not somewhere between the 3000 and 4000 models. The bike has Tange 2 tubing and had a bit of a mix and match of Shimano, Sugino, and other parts. I seem to remember mine being roughly $330 when new in the autumn of 1985. The bicycle pictured below belongs to me… and (believe it or not) it is not the same bike I owned back in 1985. I just found and purchased this bike during May of 2008 to add to my collection. As it turned out, the very same place that had sold my original Team back in 1985 had three left over at the end of that year. They were merely frames and forks though and they sat around collecting dust for a while. Sometime during 1987, the mechanic at the shop built this bike up using all Shimano 600 EX components with the exception of downtube shifters which are Shimano 105.
