Got a bag of bits with my orange frame

Anybody got any ideas on how good any of this stuff is?

Azonic bar - not straight
Sysncros Stem - black - twisted oval tubing - circle cut out facing you.
Diore XT Integrated 8 SIS rear mech - yay!
Diore XT front mech - cage rusty - easy to replace?
Shimano brake calipers - no model on outside - brm600 markings inside
Shimano servo wave action brake levers
Sachs grip shifts (ouch)

Ill put more when i get them

Cheers - appreciate it

Paul :D

The bars could be Azonic World Force Risers which are very decent and solid bars, but not too light.

Any retro Syncros stem is ok by my book!

Sachs 'Wavey' (gripshift style) shifters are good at what they do - probably as good as most GripShift, but were nice and cheap back-in-the-day (good replacements for broken STI units for a skint teenager in the '90s!).
