Hello, this is Tom
Started mountainbiking in 1989 with a used Specialized (RockCombo = 26" Touring/Cross frame, 3x7 Suntour CX9010, Tioga Farmer John / Cousin). I raced cross country from that year until 2002 (on a steel frame for many years, at the end on a Hot Chili Zymotic). from 2003 until today I have mainly ridden racebikes "for recreational purpuse only"
During the years the Votec fork on my Hot Chili fouled, so I did not have a useable mountainbike for the last two years. So now I decided to rebuild it with a Manitou SX Ti and Sram X0 3x9. About the same time I recognised, that i miss my lightwight steelframes badly. So I bought a full XTR-equipped bike from Chech (not my size unfortunately) and a very nice lightweight frame from Italy (yet to arrive...). Unfortunately this frame comes without a fork...
...And here retrobike comes into it
I am looking for a lightweight mid-90ies suspension fork. A Pace would fit my build perfectly, and I was told by the former ownder of my frame, that I might find one here.
Pretty soon I recognised this to be a nice place on the www..
