Frame , stem , forks , handlebars and seat posts are all Haro original .

Handlebars have a really funny shape and are oversize .

Front brakes are Ritchey , and i am waiting for a Ritchey Logic chainset and some brake levers as well .
The wheels will be Ritchey too .

No idea for transmission yet .

Remember reading that in the review I posted a few days ago. My AlMega got this too. May be funny, but not if you want another (proper) bar. The AlMega had more of those weird traits; only tiny waterbottles, weird mech clamp, 1-1/4 head, 130mm rear spacing - all things pretty quirky.

I dont know . it is not finished yet .

Mine is a size 21.5 , which should be too big , I normally ride an 18 . But Top tube is no longer than my 18 Zaskar .
And it weights a ton .

steerer is 1 1 /8 .
