Lost job in Feb, sold 2016 Specialized Camber Carbon Comp a week ago. It was the bike I was going to keep, but bills stacking high with two daughters in private school. New bike had to go.
Frown

A buddy gave me his old 2002 Trek, better to have a ride than not have a ride.

$60 in new parts and spare parts I had, doesn't ride to bad, much better than it was. It's not going to do advanced trails, but it gets me on a bike.

New parts: handlebars, brake and shift levers, tires.

Spare parts: seat, grips, peddles, bottle holder.




Forgot to take a before pic, but it sort of looked like this one. It had big ugly dial grip shifters. The handlebars were suicidal. Short and extreme back and upsweep. Not to mention 50mm rise.

my 1991 Kirk Revolution, mostly original parts fully restored and now my runaround bike
My latest project completed. Kirk Magnesium from about 1993. Either original parts or of the same era. Very pleased with it.

Recently bought this 1983 Specialized Rockhopper for £35!

The plan is to put dirt drops on it and fat slick tyres for some gnarmac/ touring/ rando fun!

1994 Stumpjumper. No rust, previous owner used Fluid Film on it. A number of scratches, but no dings.

Built it up using the drivetrain and wheels from the Bridgestone I used to have. Brakes came from my townie. Stem is a loaner from a buddy.

Shifters are Suntour XC Pro and the rear one is supposed to not work with that derailleur. To make it work I removed the stud bolt, replaced it with a regular M5 bolt and used one of those concave V-brake spacers to change the ratio. Works a treat.



On One Fleegle

Sun 0 XC

Onza Ibex 26x2.25

Dura Ace 7402 CS-HG70 and XTRQR

Ritchey Logic crank XT front derailleur and XT pedals

Titec stem

cockpit

nice detail work on that decal

front brake Avid SD Ti with Kool Stop brake shoes

1990 Offroad Master with WORKING FLEXSTEM. You could say this very bike was the predecessor to the current suspension bike. It was built around the stem which has a dampening system in it and allows the handlebars to absorb about an inch of travel. Offroad became PROFLEX in 1991 and started leading the way in suspension bikes for a very short while . The bike has the full Deore LX drivetrain and everything is completely original Sealed bearings cromo frame flexstem... This bike was the turnaround point for suspension mountain bikes and I have yet to see another complete original bike on the web.

Just picked this up yesterday! Spent the whole day overhauling/restoring it and managed to take 1 photo before my camera died.

(will upload better/more pics of closeups when the sun comes out)
Enjoy!


Hi do you still have your Off-road Master, if so would you consider selling it, I’ve wanted one since the early 90’s but I’ve not been able to find one
