Alpinestars used to be called MS Racing pre-90 & I infact owned one in 92, it was a MS Racing Pro Mega XT with CroMo tubing, straight tapered forks & kitted out in Deore kit. I remember it being an interesting ride.

Anyone ever seen such a thing or owned one?

Wow! Remember that poster!! Judging by the degree of ovalization present on that Biopace, must be the last year or two of the 80's.

Wow, would you look at that. My bike was very similar, even had the stem 'cam'. Thanks for this.

These are the more sober biopace rings, check out the earlier M730 groupset from 1987.

I had a mega heavy white steel MS racing for about 1 week 3yrs ago. it was intended as a cheap commute, but I didnt get on with the fit, so gave it back to fluff.
