Just did a quick check and 130 not 135. Here is a joke/photoshop crank that I wished they had made.

Here are a few more items.Some of the cantis that came in the usual array of anodised colors of the time. I dont know if this is a Machine Tech cable hanger or not.


Yep, that's a MT cable hanger. The first edition. In 1996 they came out with a different type of hanger.

i think that like most exotic hubs they sold more fronts than rears
or maybe the rears break ?

It would seem that the rear had problems. I dont know if this is the first gen Power claw and not the later Silent. MTBR reviews are here:

Also found some more pics from another MTBR thread. The first pic is a very interesting hybrid model of the Zeroflex. Instead of the normal hole it has the sculpted cut of the second generation V brakes.
