I had a pair of those (not in purple though) that I liked - except I kept cutting the backs of my fingers on the insides of the levers.
The two part clamp is sweet though.
Those are awsome......
Even in Purple. Not going to see many other bikes rocking those!
Man how can you do that ! they clash with the pedals !
Sweet deal! I picked up a $250 fork the other day for $3!
It is about time to bring back the purple anno.
hey that is what is on my Wifes Hard tail !
so is that garage door real wood ? or Plastic with an insulation fill ?
I have a pair of those in red. Had to stop using them when they quit making suspension forks drilled for cantis.:mumble:
I bet real wood, but then it begs the question: What type of tubes are in it? And are there two doors? Is a wok hiding behind them?
Where's the fire extinguisher???
What if you're cooking in the wok and the door catches fire?
Can't you adjust them enough to work with V's and modern Mech Disks? Looks like he is.
When did Avid Speed Dials cost $150?
Do those work well with your brakes? I figured that since they are canti levers, they wouldn't work well (or necessarily at all) with V-brakes or mech discs.
Didn't the dial allow you to move the cable stop way out to the end of the adjustment so you could run V's (or terrible feelign Canti's with way to little leverage)
Maybe they "kinda" worked and pople bought the correct levers instead. I remember there being a large amoutn of adjustment on the levers (roommate in college had them) but the better question is was it enough pull to match the requirements of the V's
they are the speed dial ultimates. the new versions still cost $150. I can't see how it would be worth it but regardless they look pretty sweet.
They work very well.
coulda sold you mine, but it is in the dumpster of despair.
those levers are hot, people just don't understand the power of purple. Had an 06 purple Y-11 (which the above fork came off of). Damn that was fine looking bike...
Do you think I got ripped off?
The hot ticket in '94 was to get a set of Grafton cranks in purple ano. You had a buddy get a set in another color, and you each swap one arm. In retrospect our bikes looked real dumb.
