strange shifter combo
whats it about?
I used to use this set-up 'back in the day' on a couple of my race bikes - always provoked a conversation but i found it good. It's like this on here partly for that reason and partly because it's what i had lying around!
It would be funny to ride with the hard pepperoni with a sweet titanium frame.
A steel fork would be better.
Seems to ride fine. These came with the straight Alpinestars aluminium fork as standard, which talking from experience, is even harsher than the Pepperoni. I have got a set of the Alpinestars but the steerer wasn't long enough.
A titanium fork was offered as an option but i have never seen one of these. Maybe our resident Alpinestars ex-pro can shed some light on this - Flyingwelshman, what's your comments?
As for steel, well Alpinestars never intended this and then there is the problem of finding one - sadly you have got to go with what you can find with 1 1/4".
