Hi!! I'm relatively new to Mountain Bike (Coming from the Road Bike world)

I'm used to matching my groups from the headset right down to the skewers...

I'm really finding this retro mix and match grouping cool!!!

I'm sticking with only Rocky Mountain frames so I'm aware of SYNCROS and Race Face

I really like KORE skewers so I picked up a couple of them

Are there any other cool componets that would be cool to mix and match? Most of my builds are all XTR M900 or M730 Deore XT... But I'd like to mix in some cool retro parts


thanks!! Pics are always helpful!!

Welcome to the forum! :D

Just take some time and browse through the building threads. Then you know what other retro brands are out there and - more important - which appeal to you most.

Naturally, Syncros (especially early Rocky Mountains) and Raceface (later Rocky Mountains) go together well.

After a while everyone has there personal preferences. I like Grafton, Syncros and Ringle most.

Have fun!

Hi shutter! Great you saw the MTB light and left the dark side. :lol:
As was already suggested, there are many cool brands to know, but every talk about retro componets should start here! :D

Thanks! I've been busy! I like cook bros but I'm finding that most suffer from the common disease of Shoe rub

White industries made some cool stuff. Mid 90's cranks and hubs were choice :)

Hope.

It's rarely actually that good, but it's British and looks oh so sweet.

One of the firs with hydro disc brakes, but mainly clamps, qr's and finishing kit.
