3.) Grove Innovations Hot Rods Cranks...the first two piece crank design with all it's tubular loveliness. Lighter than M900, tougher than a Bull's nut sack, and been on my want/need/desire list since I could not afford them. My quest may be at an end soon, though :wink:

Ohhh yeahhhh :wink:

Those 2mm brake cables (Shimano?) from the very early 90's. Absolutely no stretch at all. Is mine the only bike with the original cable from 1991 still on it? I have lost count of the number of new block sets the bike has got through but the cable lives on!!


Ah - that reminds me - Clark's Powerglide cables with the slippery plastic liner.
I had some on my BMX that improved the brakes hugely.
AND (just as important) the outers came in every colour imaginable.

That's why I can't get rid off the 5 NOS XT brake cable sets I still have :wink:
