Hi Joe

Here's some pics of my Breezer Sky, believed 1993....

http://mike-dean.fotopic.net/c1911214.html

....any info on these as it seems hard to find any info on the web...believe these were made for Canada and the UK only so I'm guessing pretty rare...did you have any involvement in building these frames yourself?

Cheers

Mike

What an amazing thread, I've been looking for an old Breezer for some time now but they always tend to be medium frames when i need a large. Great to see you on the forum Joe!

Here are some shots of my long-time road ride, my 1994 Breezer Venturi. The Venturi was the only road bike that Breezer made, as far as I know, so I really enjoy keeping it both for riding and to have as a cool/interesting bike. Very nice ride and looks.

This is my 1996 Thunder. I bought it for $300, basically what the Fox Fork on it was worth. It has apparently lead a hard life in the hands of someone who doesn't know how to shift, as the driveside chainstay is nearly stripped of paint. Luckily the XTR V-Brakes were in good condition. I took off the Fox and used it for my '12 Lightning build, and found a sweet chrome fork(not as sweet as an original Breezer fork, but...), and now it is a 1x8.

PS: Does anyone know what is the proper seatpost size for this bike? It came with a 27.0, but the seat clamp looks pinched all the way, so I wonder if I should spread it and try a 27.2.

Not sure if this should technically be here as it is a home made breezer mk1 replica:

natrually the chances of ever owning a mk1 or mk2 breezer are pretty thin I thought I would try and make one. Its not going to win any awards but it was fun to build and rides surprisingly well especially down hill.

more pics of the build and research here:
