>>>All I remember in Avocet-branded parts were the hubsets, pedals, double- and triple-cranksets, BBs, headsets (loose and sealed units), seatposts (all

Greg -

Don't forget to add track cranks to the list. I've got two. Agree that Avocet had lot's of good intentions and not always a lot of follow-through. I know they still make saddles, but I've never been too fond of them either then (spec'd on lots of early Treks) or now (my wife raced with the Air 02 for a while, but they seemed to break down very quickly). I also still have a pair of late 80's Avocet touring shoes that are very tennis shoe-like, and pretty good "walkers".

Like Jan, I was quite fond of the R20 FasGrips, and still have a pair with the tan side wall set aside for my 3Rensho project.
