Circa 1993: Klein Attitude, full Suntour XC Pro, Ritchey Vantage Comp rims, Sun Tour Grease Guard hubs, Dia Compe canti brakes,Smoke front tire, Joe Murray rear tire. Onza bar ends, Flite Ti saddle IRD seat post, Ringle' bottle cages, and skewers, and Suntour Grease Guard pedals with Christophe straps and generic plastic cages. Helmet by Shoei, (pre Troy Lee branding) Chuck Taylors in a lovely shade of purple, and Giordana bib shorts . No idea what jersey is on underneath the sweat top. That thing on my ankle is a wrestling knee pad that is protecting a 50 cent sized hole I tore into my ankle with the middle chainring. (For the locals, this is at the enterance to Seven Bridges Park)
Circa 2006: Salsa Dos Niner with SRAM X-9 drivetrain and TruVativ Stylo Team crank. DT Swiss hubs laced to Salsa Delgado Disc rims, Avid BB-7 disc calipers and Avid Speed Dial levers. WTB saddle, Salsa Shaft seat post, Rock Shox Reba fork, Salsa Relish rear damper, Michelin AT XC tires, and ancient Shimano clipless peds coutesy of Mr. 24. ( I gota get those back to ya pal!) The helmet in the pic is just for this pose, as it's the very same Shoei helmet from the first pic. I had handpainted it back in the day. The jersey is a Salsa Classico wool, tights by Trek, bibs underneath: Giordana, (but not the same as in the above pic!) Shoes: Lake, glasses by Tifosi. Location: Camp Ingawanis
My! How things have changed!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
