Been after one of these for over a year, this one turns up on the bay and I grab it from the sellers hands. It was listed as a Proflex stem!

Parkpre PFR Chromoly stem 1 1/8" 130mm. OE on the top end Parkpre bikes. Whawhawha and it's, all mine. Will fit this to the Parkpre Pro Elite Ti where it will fit in beautifuly. Just need to find some PFR 140 handlebars :wink:

Jolly fine condition but remember

PFR stands for "Porn Ror Retards". I'll help you to remove the stigma by taking it off your hands.....

think I got one of theese in a drawer somewhere to.

I put a os stem/bar combination on my 98 pro 825 today but i'm not that sure looks a bit beefy but it's really light. So I have to think about it...

it's a temporary build, if I'm going to keep it, I will take it down again and give it some new paint. but the original colour is sweet together with the white decals.

columbus tubing

specs right now are kcnc bar, xtr v's, avids, xt topmounts on friction paired with a 9speed 11-34 slx cassette and a pollished xt mech, stronglight bb and stronglight duo crankset right now 32t but I'm the process of ordering a 38 or 39t cog for allround use, sid 98, thomson post, stripped flite, xt hubs paired with blue mavic rims (oem acctually but from another parkpre).

weight should be kind of low but it isn't the frame weighs around 2200+ grams but it rides very well acctually, only tried it with a bit higher fork but the initial feel was that it felt ok.

Looks quite nice, not seen many of the later Parkpres 8)
Much fatter down tube than my Pro825's. You should get a build thread up.
I weighed a 19" 1994 Pro825 frame and is was 2090g

I think this was around 2250+ gramish somewhere. I'm taking it apart again, need to overhaul the components and decide if it's worth repainting considering it's weight.

This would do a great basis for a really good SS bike, I'm not a big fan of just keeping stuff and not using it, so it might go out on the market in sweden again quite soon.
