What is the perfect bike for these - did they come as standard fit on anything BiTD?

keep them NOS unless you absolutely need them for a build and are patient; a few pop-up used each year.

Leave them in the packaging. Better yet, put them in a shadow box and hang them on the wall. 8)

Dribble, dribble, dribble...

one bike comes to mind that they came equipped on and that was the Greg Lemond MTB...not many of them knocking about I'm sure...

the 825's always go for mega bucks on ebay... :roll:

I don't remember them being standard fit on anything. One of my fave MTB items of all time. A bit cumbersome to use but I still love them.
