Splendid build! Love the fork! No love for camelbaks? That beautiful frame screams "ditch these cages". Congrats on a most excellent and period correct build!

Retro_Roy:

Let's see some pics of the RekTek!! I can only remember the ones from the Craigslist ad, change anything? Enjoy the ride!!!


Mr. Toad:

Unfortunately, no, I haven't seen the Ogopogo yet, just the occasionally beached whale!! I will keep looking though.


Smithjss70:

I do have a Camelbak but not a big fan of it, get's too damn hot with it on your back and they are a pain to clean. I should probably get used to wearing one so I can pack a spare tube, levers, CO2 cartridges and munchies, just in case I get a flat?!?! Knock on wood!!

Does anyone know what the value of a frame like this is? I am very much a 95/96 kona fan but I was able to obtain an 18" Ti Rektek. I might pull apart my Kilauea to try riding this thing. My friend keeps asking me to sell it but I am not sure what to ask for it.

Sorry, I have been a long time lurker and finally made an account. I can post a pic or two in exchange for an answer :P

hi
and welcome from coquitlam. if you've been a long time lurker then you must know there
is a thread for what's my xyz worth. :)

viewforum.php?f=78

also instead of hijacking this thread maybe start your own for your rek tek
and tell us all about it with the before mentioned pictures. we'd love
to see it.
cheers

Made a few changes to the RekTek over the winter and have been riding it a lot this spring!!

Swapped the Titec Titanium stem and handlebar for a RaceFace Ti-Beam stem and Syncros Pro Series Titanium handlebar. Also, found some clear grips to show the Syncros decals. Just wish the Syncros seatpost had the same finish as the frame, stem and handlebar. Now it is a true Canadian Titanium bike!!!

I also have a set of Ringle cages in pewter (Ti Colour) that I have been thinking of putting on but not sure if it would look right???

Improvements...................not changes. 8)

There was a ti Rek Tek on our local craigslist this past week.
Don't know who snagged it yet. Didn't last long.
