So many trends (as Kris Green said) were in evidence in the 1984 era-- I brought over the Nevada Ski binding-based Look black and white pedals from France after seeing them in LeCycle; then Hinault and LeMond used them in the TdF and in the Coors later the next summer. When I ride my Vitus 979 equipped with CLB SpaceLine brakes, Mavic/Nisi wheels, and first generation Shimano click shifters with the Looks, I feel that it is definitely more closely related to my present generation Ti/Carbon Shimano 9 rider. For this reason, I think there is a limit to just how far Dale can extend the "classic era" forward from approximately 1984.
