Mark,

To expound upon those comments already offered by Jerry Moos on this very subject, you may also wish to check the relatively new online resource constituted of various vintage cycling road tests and reviews posted to WoolJersey inasmuch as the St. Etienne model US-10 was covered in the December 1974 issue of Bicycling magazine. The link to said review is as follows:
