Love Syncros! Always dreamed of building a bike with as much Syncros as humanly possible.
Stopped into the local Re-Cyclery the other day and the Tech knew I had a passion for the stuff and held back this wheel for me.

Ive got plenty of stems and posts and a couple cranks and a bottom bracket.

Now I need a rear wheel, bars and........
the elusive Fork! :shock:

you need to lace that hub to an appropriate Syncros rim. ;)

And black Syncros chain-rings for the revolution cranks, not sure what bottom bracket you have? Oh, and the seat-post! Maybe the bar-ends? Head-set as well?
What frame are you gonna use? Something Canadian? The Fork is going to be the most difficult to get, followed by the bars. Good luck, hope you find the entire kit.

I'm already on to this idea...I have everything (all in black), just need to build it all up now :)

It should be the frame in the Syncros advert or possibly a Serrota.

Who made that frame by the way?



I almost forgot my Son's Yeti Hardtail. We're doing a semi modenish build that includes a nice Syncros Cockpit that includes this recently obtained Headset and post.

You rotten sod, lol, you know what frame I have lined up. It's a Serrota of sorts :? Should have been a Brodie, but I stupidly declined.
