Sorry for the (hoping temporary) on air cables, here is one of my too many projects, a 1996 Breezer Storm, in 19" size :oops:
Do i take a classic or more colorful way :?:
First case, mostly silver and black Ritchey components, XT thumbies, M900 derailleurs and hubs, Middleburn crankset, and a light touch of green :?:
Or should i fall in the dark side of green/purple (hubs, TechLite levers, Answer bars, Dia Compe cantis, headset, a lot of bolts......) :?:
A little help to choose my way please :wink:

Very classic frame, beautiful! I like how well the Ritchey post suits the frame.

These frames are actually great. Riding them has some of the "magic" that Fat frames also have. Believe me Breezer's are truly something else.

.....and such great design and colors!

My 2 cents

The Frame is awesome, the paint colour is superb, the graphics and design of Breezer is such that it does not in my opinion require ostentatious displays of purple components :wink:

Go Subtle and that will look totally awesome 8) 8) 8) :D

No purple! Amber-wall tyres might suit it better than modern ones?
