    I went dumpster diving last year found a ross bike like this almost have totally restored.

    I own a Ross Grand Tour 10 speed.Black, large frame.Looks similar to your Adventurer. How can I determine the year it was made.Also, do you know the original tire size on my bike. The previous owner (unknown) put 700-23c on the rear and 27-1.25 on the front.No bikeshop here knows.

      My guess is 27×1-1/4″.

      As for the year of manufacture, don’t know for sure, but look for the serial # (probably 10 digits on the left rear dropout). The first four digits are reported to be the month/year of manufacture. Example: Serial #0680123456 –> 0680 = June 1980
