Just finished this 1992 Titanium, unfortunately not at all original, but with some nice goodies anyway. I know, the frame is way too small for me.

Nice bicycle, it is a shame that is dosen´t fit you very well.

I´m a RM owner too, but both are from 2006, one of them brand new :D

Always great to see and proper gripshift too.
Also good to see the 'list' Ritchey crank rather than the 'picture' XT crank.
Now I will say, technically they didn't come with that older style seatpost but with the new 1991 style seatpost. OR at least my UK one did.
(the 1990 it is shown in the in the catalogue, and still in the 1992 catalogue for some reason)

Quite interesting as a review version also still used that old seatpost, the 1991 frame but had Wolber TR-1 and a nice Ringle Q/R's.*

I see many built with the 1990 seatpost as pictured in the 1991 catalogue though
(and in fact funnily the 1991 Syncros catalogues bike pictures fit them.
The syncros advert has the new posts breakout advert box pointing to the old posts on the bike. Amusing, at least to me.

I love it, so clean and tidy :)


*I assume this may have been a not quite 1992 model as it was reviewed September 1991

Re:

Recently acquired 1994 Vapor, Swapped to a Superlight rigid fork from an XC51, may still have a couple part swaps left to do with other bikes as this is at the top of my favorite list currently

Re:

One of the first retro mtbs I got was sold as a rm blizzard but Turned out to be something like a soul. Now I finally got myself a proper blizzard frame with oem cranks, headset and seatpostcollar. Impatient as I am I build it up with spare parts, now I only have to wait for the weekend ...
