1995 KHS Aero Turbo 53cm

Description

This was my impulse shopping. I should have said no to this one, but the bike itself is nice, light, and quite good. It had RSX 2x7 brifters and it was great. I think I changed the cassette to be a little wider range than when I got.

I wanted more touring oriented bike rather than race bike and this one is quite race oriented.
For example, I cannot run 25mm tire on the front. The fork is so close the 23mm tire. It needs to be either 20mm or 23mm. With 23mm, even a little bit off from true, the tire hits the top of fork.
For my bike commute, this was not a good choice.
I admit though it's quite fun to ride this bike.

In the end, I replace the fork so that you can run at least 25mm tires.
