Ha, I thought something wasn't right :D Great bike though, and if I ever have enough disposable money I'll get another one for shits and giggles:

I think the Specialized Toupe saddle got the bike into the sub 55lb range ha….

Both frames are medium, but have an inch less top tube than our medium SC Bullits.

Walleater, Nice Bike!

I also had one back in the day. It was a slug on the long uphills but with a 36 tooth chain ring and 24" rear wheel the thing was pretty good for the techy chute accents.

I'm the best at being modest !

^worth it for the syncros cranks alone (which appear to be selling for 3-400+ these days).

haha; nice! what's the plan? should do a proper resto (ie, powdercoat [HTML_REMOVED] decals) on those cranks regardless.

The front rim is pretty worn out and the fork is somewhat lacking in sealing or rebound so for the short term at least I'll stick on a black Z2 and and XTR / Araya RM395 Team wheel up front as I'd like to ride this a bit rather than just hang it from the ceiling (I'm saying that now…..!).

I pulled the crank and BB out during lunch and all is good there. Nothing broken or seized which is a relief. I'll get the cranks done when I have some cash for such frivolities. Other than that I'll probably keep it pretty well how it is I think. Lovely patina ;)

Had that frame back in the late 90's was set up quite different. I had Marz double crown fork and a coil spring rear shock. I ended up breaking the frame. I am friends with the Brodie sales rep at the time. He said he would look into what he could do for me. Never heard back. I wish I would have kept it.

My single speed Masi is fun, but sometimes I need gears so I got this guy.
