We’ve had a run of NOSOTS this month. This is Gordon’s NOS 1988 Ross Adventurer complete with a late ’80s bicycle accessory staple—the frame pouch with integrated carry strap.
1988 Ross Adventurer 27″ brand new
About my bike:
I love to road bike, and I love the old 10 speeds. I ride 20 to 30 miles every day that it’s nice outside. I found this bike at a local Bike Shop in my area. It’s a Ross Adventurer 27 inch 10 speed made in 1988. This bike is brand new. It was up in the storage area of the bike shop still in the box. It had been up there for a long time. You can see the owners manual still tied to the handlebars. I got it home, all setup and ready to go. I rode it about a mile so far and it is solid. No noise, shifts smooth and precise every time, wheels are dead true, brakes perfect. This bike is very lightweight and easy to ride. I will be getting a lot of good miles out of this baby when the weather turns nice again. I took off the triangle bag, because it will make it just a little lighter, and I carry everything I need in a waist pack. The only thing I have added to this are pedals with the toe straps, and a small bike computer. This Ross is Boss.
