Well, it's high because I just put it "on lips". It won't be staying on the bike too long. And yes, it's super rare too.


weren't those Klein posts made by Shimano, a rebadged version of the (also HTF) Deore XT post?

It's a Kalloy-made post. Nothing fancy, except the Klein decals...

That's funny, I had a kalloy post in my 1992 team colours Attitude, a plain silver post - I thought it looked dull so I cut a flouro pink klein decal out of an old copy of MBA and stuck it on the post with double sided tape, people kept asking me where I got it from - who knew the real ones were kalloy too!

Got some nice set of wheels today: Tinker Juarez' original racing wheels from 1993!! I was able to acquire these with the help of Tinker himself. They even have UCI checking numbers on them.

They have Ringlé SuperBubba / SuperEight hubs, Sun Chinook rims and Wheelsmith spokes.

And here's the bike after some updates:

So it has now the Tinker wheelset, Tioga Psycho tires, RS Mag 21 SL/Ti fork legs with clear ATI Shockboots, correct Look S2R pedals, etc. etc.

Next step is to install the cables and Sachs chain.

The bike might look a little bit matte and it is since it has a special protecting wax layer on it... Under it, it has 3 layers of Autoglym super waxes on...
