Looks great together with the matching forks and stem. Why all the spacers? maybe a stem with rise? and you could use something like this for your cables, saves damaging the existing guides...

Ah, cool idea. I had seen this before but forget about.

Regarding spacers: Yes, it looks crazy, but I need something higher for my back ;-)

So my be stem with rise and a handlebar with some additional cm hight. I hopped the DH3 will do the trick (compared to the XC700), but thats only 20mm more. Or may be some very different fork with more travel ...


Edit: Seems to be difficult to find something in red with a higher rise, may be some with 20°. I don't want it in black, that's so bääääh.

O.k., I decided to try a little bit with effordable parts (not that special brands) :

- black handlebar with 30mm rise & 10° backsweep (a red handlebar is too much 'red') - much more rise is possible (see picture of the original 92' Sintesi Bromont bike)
- red stem 20° (I want to stay to a red stem)
- take the ugly black spacer out
- change the black Magura Evolution adapter into silver/grey (found 1 set, looking for another)
- red seat post
- I'd like to have a red Marzocchi Brake Booster instead of the silver one used in XC700 and DH3, but I have never seen one in real

Pictures will follow after next test mount. In the meantime I will do the Shimano parts :-)

I think a set of very high rise retro DH handlebars would look good.

EDIT something like these with the crosspiece

Yes! The original handlebar in the Sintesi Bromont Bike had also one, with a big rise. Thanks for the Ebay Link!

I like that.

Here is my blue and black - the frame was annodised. Storage had been kind and the colours stayed fresh

I have seen that in the net many times and got 'infected' ;-) The blue parts are crazy cool!

What is your rear damper? A Marzocchi A0033?
Did you manage to service it?

Did you adjust the pressure? To what level?

I think someone send me the manual for this shock (A0033), but I can't remember where it is #!**#*# :-/
