    Is that the one with an eccentric crankset:-?

    A guy is selling me his old Panasonic bike with I guess 6 speed cassette at the back and 2 eccentric chain ring on the front(I guess I got it right)

    I did not pay attention much on the detail but I feel kind of like it and I need to see some pictures to know what year exactly it is...

    Thanks.

    ugh. Now I'm going to have nightmares. As far as repairs from hell go, that ranks right up there with the guy who got mad at me for not having a Swiss BB in stock .

    New question here.

    OK, I check the bike again and here's the detail;

    Panasonic MC 2500 with serial number 8E00826.

    According to Sheldon Brown website, you can identify the year model based on the second digit...therefore, the S/N confused me since it's 08...it may be a 2000 model but this model was said to made between the 1985 to 1988...

    Anybody can tell me a clear explanation about this:-?

    Thanks...
