Hi fellow bikers,
See my Klein Pulse comp from '96 I tried to build up a bit retro.
(I know, this is not a pre Trek era Klein so probably not considered retro at all...)
Built up as follows:
frame > Klein Pulse Comp (1996)
fork > Manitou SX (1998, m'n 1996 mach 5 gebroken )
wheels > Mavic CrossRide (1999?)
quick releases > Salsa (1999)
cranks > Race Face Next carbon 8 speed (1999)
brakes > Shimano XT-V(1996 > yep, the first V-Brakes from Shimano)
derailleurs > Shimano XT (2003, arh, my 1996 stuff has worn out...)
cassette > Shimano 8 speed 11-30 (1999)
shifters > SRAM X-ray 800i (1996)
stem > Ringle Zooka Clamp On (1997)
seatpost > Ringle Moby Deuce (1997)
sadlle > Selle Italia Flite gel (2002)
handlebar > Easton EA70 (2007 > right! in a search of a retro handlebar)
bar ends > Roox (2003, I know, not realy retro at all)
headset > eh, dunno, it is a Ritchey (1999)
cage > Ringle H20
still a nice bike...?
is this semi retro rig misplaced on this forum?
