The sound of two snipes :wink:

Should make a fantastic set of wheels.. Have some Ritchey Vantage Pro 36H NOS rims and a pair of new Onza Rip & Rails to dress them..

Cheers Obi, the bike these are going on is not built yet, and it's in the UK [I am in Sydney :roll: ]..

Yep got the rear hub too, although that'll need an internals investigation/rebuild.. I have a Splash seat post too 8)

Moving back in four months so it's gonna be a busy Xmas for me!! :lol:

woohaa!

Now I see why kase1983 mentioned the hubs where for kingroon: to match your seatpost!
Nice!

Do you know the zooka's and maybe even the H20's were made in this splash ano color?
What about the wheelbinders?
Would make an excellent complete set of Ringle!
But honeslty, I doubt it, never seen these parts in this splash colors.
But then again, never saw your hubs and seatpost either!

good luck building your retro rig!

Very nice theme you've got going there.

<thinks about how much 'roon would pay for a splash zooka stem>
<thinks about talking to anodisers and making huuuuge profit>
