That's interesting. It must have a modified BB as M950 didn't come out until 97 and that frame is clearly an early 95. There was a company that sold BB that allowed you to use the normal BB shell and run M950 cranks on the special spindle.


I thought that people just got a thread tapped into the BB shell?

the adroit nightstorm frame is from 1994 . number 72 . painter jim .


Im pretty sure Jeff 'Nuke' was the only guy that painted the Nightstorms..

I've had a few messages exchanged with Nuke and he did mention that Jim was one of the painters used to experiment the Nightstorm jobs before Gary commissioned Nuke to do the rest of the Nightstorm job. Those commissioned by other guys beside Nuke are extremely rare.

Ever tried skinwall tires on this bike? Somehow i don't like silver rims with complete black tires, they look a bit shabby to me.
Not only on your bike, but i had Death Grips on my bike with silver rims and didn't like it either.....

Nice bike, by the way :wink:

Health restrictions allowing, ride it in some mud!

There are cars worth millions being raced, it is only a relatively cheap bicycle.
