Hi, I'm building up a Rocky Mountain Experience and I want to go with blue accents... not sure of the brand yet, but I know I want blue...

Could go with Race Face, Ringle, Cook Bros, Kore, ect...

Let me know what you have and price (I'm happy to pay extra shipping to Canada)

thanks!

IIRC the Experience uses a seat QR? I have a NOS Ti Control Tech seat binder if you're interested. Shipping should be reasonable.

I have a single blue/turquoise Avid Tri-Dangle cable-hanger. 5 EUR + shipping.


Maybe in 6 weeks time a NOS 1 1/8 Chris King 2 Nut threadset (no logo, early 90s) and a matching Ringle Zooka threaded stem 135mm, 0 degrees, both in lovely turquoise. But cannot promise anything yet. And those things won't be cheap. :oops:

Remember that the blue tones are differnt:

Ringle/Grafton/Chris King/Answer have a light blue/turquoise and fit together nicely (see the typical Yeti ARC).

Kooka/Cook Bros./Avid/Controltech are usually darker. Chris King offers a normal blue Nothreadset also.

Diacompe 987 cantis in tidy blue here if you need them. I'll do a good price as they have sat lonely in the bits box for too long!

Thanks! Tempting... But I'm really picky about show rub as most of my bikes are garage queens that take turns on short rides

Thanks! I'm going threadless on this one =)

Good point about the shades of blue... Thanks!

I ordered all new water bottle and rear eyelet bolts today and had to be sure they all matched...

I may end up finding that the only way to do it is to just guess and then hope the shades of blue are close enough... :|
