Panasonic CB4000

This 1993 model of Panasonic’s CB4000 is a classic cross bike that combines the rare Shimano 700CX group set with a double-butted chromoly frame (Tange Infinity).

The 700CX group‘s most noticeable feature is its unusually narrowly-geared cassette that you would rather expect on a road bike. Loved by delivery riders and couriers for its smooth transitions, it never enjoyed great popularity elsewhere. After a year, it got discontinued.
