Makes me wish I still had my "Experience". It was stolen a long time ago, and I ended up building up my current "Cirrus" a few years after. Don't get me wrong, my "Cirrus" handles great, but I loved the higher BB clearance and shorter wheelbase of the "Experience".

The only original Rocky part that came of the bike that I still have is "shoulder holder" seat!

Sorry, my Syncros collection only gets bigger. It's kind of an addiction really. I have a spare set of steel Revolution cranks and forks, but they'll eventually be used on some other Rocky project.


I have one too and its quite close, you can see it in a pic on my signature link.

It has a really old school Syncros seatpost with a long extinct top clamp and I wonder if I have it facing the wrong direction. Why? The rear bolt seems perilously close to the bottom semi-circle.

Can any other original Syncros seatpost owners comment?


I think the problem is that your seat is angled down at the front. If you tilt it back a bit you should get the bar to slide through a bit, and create a touch more clearance.

Hoepfully...

Porschenut, if you don't mind me asking, what's the sizing on that frame?
