Now the rektek headtube badge, the rektek sticker are on it, but the small one says titanium. The syncros sticker say Cro-Mo (well it's a columbus nichrome sticker and emblem with syncros branding at the top. Could well have been put on later. What did Brodies/Kona's look like around this time ?


Yep, this is a mystery. What did Syncros ever make that they put Columbus stickers on?

Could this be some sort of Syncros prototype frame?

I've always wondered what the frame in the ad is.

if anything, that looks more like your bike Scott. There's also a Syncros branded bike in one of the Syncros catalogues. Can't recall which year. And the photo is I believe in colour.

Sweeeeet :D

What seatpost is that? Can you post a few more pics? If you are planning on sprucing it up a bit would you mind starting a dedicated thread so we can all follow along?

Cheers 8)

with all these conflicting decals,
what exactly is the frame made of?
would be nice if it was painted titanium.
