That Rocky really should have RaceFace cranks rather than the Revolutions - but the early ones can be hard to come by.


FWIW I have a set of the early RF cranks in the picture that I could part with, identical arms with black spider.

And that's one sweet looking Ti Bolt. I like the red cable outers, but tires black and I have a soft spot for nice brake levers and skewers.

Enjoy!!

Jez, surely you have considered sourcing a Ti Powerlite...?? ;-)

Babel Fish translation reads:

The Titanium appeared still before the TiBolt and was 1990 Rocky's first Titanbike. It is very easily 9,8kg and has an extremely rare Syncros titanium fork (Powerlight) of that it world-wide only 3 (!) prototypes gave. It has from a former team driver...

The Summit is the pick IMHO...!

Hey thanks Neil!

Pretty similar to the frame I have from the looks of it.

I dont even think I could find a wheel like that Im afraid even if I wanted one to put on the thing!
