    Rocky Mountain Altitude

    Re: Aha - thanks for confirming - I suspect it was with 96 or 97 due to the “15 years” sticker. I’ll be sure to ask my son to lock it well and not too knock around too much. Thinking about it though I was really after a small for him and the reach on the medium is a little far...

    Sugino XD Pro Triple Chainring and Shimano Drive Train

    Looking to replace an old Shimano chain ring with a Sugino XD Pro Triple Chainring. Very unsure however of how compatible they are. The rear cassette is Shimano 8 speed. Is there anything I need to know ? Thanks!
