No the old Bertrand store, Cyclo-sportif G.M. Bertrand is the new one that the sons started.

TSX I thought was post SLX but pre EL-OS, so my guess is the frame is very late 80's or very early 90's. I have a '93 Marinoni that's EL-OS.

But the components are certainly mid 80's, they just seem to be built on a slightly later frame. I'd expect to see C-Record or Chorus on a TSX frame.

But still the question remains, what would you pay for such a beast? I'm just trying to gauge whether or not it's a good deal.

1. Bertrand? Would that be from Cyclo-sportif G.M. Bertrand in Hull, Quebec?

2. With Campagnolo SR/SL & 6 speed, I'd think mid-80's instead of early-90's

3. What years were "TSX" tubing made? (CR's Columbus site is 404)
