bikepro is THE bible for retro swag. its a permanent "sticky" thread on mtbr.com/retro forum for good reason :) I believe the shop closed many years ago but some1 had the good sence to keep this mine of info running :)

They produced a catalogue with the same info in it, thats nice to have ;)

I had that catalogue it was fantastic.
To this day I can remember one of the notes on Ritchey WCS Gold bars:
"This is a Hyperlite, made at the same factory. The reason that it is lighter than the Hyperlite is the fact that it is 2in shorter" Or as close as my memmory will allow.

I prefer the cook bros stem review. along the lines of "if you've given any thought to the readings of this book you'll notice how rare outright praise is... stirling construction & deserves the recognition of Momma" :D

I nearly sold mine to finance a raleigh replica. raleigh got sold :( so glad I hung onto the cook bros for now... :)
