It's always nice to have someone outing the merchandise. If he wanted it that badly, he could have done the research himself...

Default Outing the merch?

More like broadening the man's horizons. Vintage Syncros vs. NOS Suntour is a no brainer.

What are these boards for if not edification?

I guess tonedef_prods is not a member of this board and seems that edification doesn't matter when you are using sniper services. This dude has been buying everything and paying top dollar like there is no tomorrow.


peace out.........

Default S/he may well be...

That's a weird post too, isn't it? It's a newer style, but 26.4. What Fat could that go on and be period correct? $122 or whatever was quite a bit more than full-pop retail when new.

As a Canadian it kind of pains me to say that I've never been into Syncros stuff. Loved how light it was (except the cranks - which are anchors) , hated how the seatpost cradles broke and the stems that looked like they were on steroids. The cranks, headsets, and BBs were always struck me as poor cousins to the products they were supposed to rival.

All the Nitto-made Ritchey components - and clearly Suntour XC seatposts - just appeal to me so much more. That's stuff I'd pay full-pop 1989-92 retail for NOS now.

So if s/he's here, what bike's it going on Rockefeller?

And that Suntour XC that was called out to the masses was only about 250 mm in length, kind of short for my liking.
