Just picked up a Titec stem and White Bros riser bar for the beloved Unicoi. Used to have a Thomson and LP riser. Is this an improvement? Comments welcome. Anyone got a cool Ti post in 27.2?

nice parts on a really nice frame, but its a bit of a mess of years? and although i used to be a big fan of brake boosters, they are now a bit of a faux pas. best year for fox forx tho. i have a mint pair put by for future retro use :wink:

Is that a SRAM titanium booster? Think I have one of those too. Nice bit of kit but maybe not on that frame.

I like boosters though...
