CK,

that is utter madness. 200GS and AT-4s.

Look forward to seeing it complete :D

also have a Kirk Revolution, fell in love or was it madness with the frame and it's technology then i.e. use of magnesium alloy molded :lol:

assembled it in '97 with complete Shimano Deore XT gruppo, Alessa X-plorer aero rims, aero spokes, Answer by Manitou Body Shock seatpost, Marzocchi XCR suspension fork, Sakae Ti handlebar, OGK grips and Vette saddle.

stored it for 8 years but i'm riding it now, still with the original parts

never ceases to amaze people, it's definitely a head turner

good luck with your Revo project, keep us posted

Thats an aluminium flexstem aswell, the bars and stem were worth more than the 200GS groupset BITD. Madness.

I've got a pair in the shed - can be a bit of a pain fitting levers with wide clamps - and stems likewise.
