does anyone remember in 1995 the Fred salmon range which was identical to many Ringle items

i remember the zooka replica - identical, and Mojo's also, for a fraction of the cost!

anyone got any pics or even know what im going on about?

I have a pair of Fred Salmon skewers in silver, not sure that they're modelled on Ringle though, before my time. Pity they're silver, but they work fine, they weigh 43 + 47 and they were cheap. What more do you want? I also have a pair of Ringle that weigh 53 + 58 and don't work fine any more and probably cost several times as much. But at least they're black, anyway.

I have a few fred salmon bits that came on an old bike i purchased 2nd hand back in 95. All blue annodised.
Got F&R skewer set & seat binder.
Fred salmon carbon (effect ) handlebars
and a fred salmon "leaping salmon" brake booster.
I did have some clear fred salmon grips, much like porcipaws but even softer...sadly they were slung out ages ago.
Non of it ringle copies but all fairly effective and fun.

I've got a Fred Salmon bar in a kinda lightish blue, not turquoise but not deep blue either - stoopidly light... lasted 13 years longer than the Kona Racelight bar did!

OK - it's was only ridden for 3 of those 13, but I broke the Kona one after about 11 months... left hand side snapped!
Anyone had a Velocity stem to the chest? It's not a particularly pleasant experience :(

Currently some bars and Stems on eBay UK... here
