Gearing is pretty good. Your either climbing or descending around here so there is some pushing involved. Love the bars - similar to my regular mountain bike bars. Love how wide they are.Awesome ride, does the gearing work good for dirt paths? Does the width of the bars feel nice and stable?
Thanks!another beauty Mark!

I don't think so. There is a slight difference in where the seat stays hit the seat tube, a little lower than "normal". It's possibly due to the different rear dropouts. I have also noticed that the 80s frames have a lot of variation in the curviness of the down tube.Are the angles way different on that frame?
Just measured it. The seat tube measurement is 22", where the other 4 M2600 straight-bar frames I was able to measure the same way come in at 20". Not sure if this was a one-off tall frame, or something that Worksman offered. I bought it from a lady who won it at a popular VA Beach dance bar back in '84-'85.Are the angles way different on that frame?
I love the gusset...don't love the broken frame
