Been after info on my bike for a while and discovered it was a Cro-mega through another forum. Decided to do some more research tonight and found this forum and some more pics belonging to a member on here.
Anyway, here's my bike:
I bought in 1992, it was 2nd hand and the frame had been resprayed due to it being a stolen-recovered one, so had no indication of what bike model actually was. The AlpineStars USA logo is stamped on the frame where the rear spindle sits. Pics are below.
I used to ride it almost everyday before I got a car, but nothing really serious: racing-wise, and has been relatively unused for the last 6 years for definate. It is still in good condition tho but sat in the workshop.
The spec of it is:
AlpineStars 21 speed gents mountain bike.
> Accu-trax straight front forks.
> Zoom lightweight seat post.
> Kona Avocet gel seat.
> Alpinestars mega-lite handlebars.
> John Tomac grips.
> Shimano short reach brake levers.
> Shimano Deore XT sis gear levers.
> Shimano brake set & blocks.
> Shimano narrow chain.
> Shimano Exage 500LX front gears.
> Shimano Exage 500LX front derailleur.
> Shimano 7 speed rear block.
> Shimano Exage 500LX rear derailleur.
> Ritchey Vantage Sport rims.
> AlpineStars 26" x 2.1" tyres.
> Quick release seat post pin.
> Quick release front & rear skewers.
That is how it was when I bought it, and the only things changed have been a pair of new tyres, new spokes and a set of V brakes.
The frame numbers are 988060166 - B10268
As it was when I bought it:
As it is now since 1999-ish:
Sorry the pics aren't brilliantly clear, but they are a photo of a photo.
