How far down do the alu sprockets go? :shock:

If I was forced to guess a single year, I would say '91 or '92, possibly '93 :lol:

Yeah 91-92. Really nice! Those are Klein Ultra Light group set stuff. They were made by Hügi.

I don't think the cogset can be Hugi-made - says 'Everest - Nova - Made in Italy' and is all 8sp aluminium. Probably last as long as an Italian cheese...

What age appropriate rims would go with these??
