I would like to see at least one entry with this groupset. It'll get my vote. Not quite full Quartz, crankset looks like Sugino?

There is one! Well half of one anyway.... Mine.

But AFAIK the Quarz chainset was made by Sugino so looks pretty identical anyway.

Yep, Sugino made kranks for Sachs as for Ritchey, White Ind. etc. But Quartz had no hidden bolt design, twisted look a like arms and different chainrings unless I'm thinking of different year/group?

Edit: There we have, no twisted arms though but pretty sure some Sachs cranks were designed that way :?

I was expecting the definition to those countries eligible for Eurovision :lol:


I had considered that but they really push the definitions of Europe. It'd be unfair to pit the bicycle producing power house that is Israel against the rest.
