|What bike? You don't post a picture of it here, nor do you say anything about your experiences on it so far.
Nothing to discuss.

|I couldn't load the image. Darn it! I'll post it tomorrow then.|

|Finally found it. Please critique for me. This bike no longer has grip shift. I put shimano barend shifters on it.
I'll post the other picture later.
|it's very clean||MJ|

|what kind of drops are those? |
how do you like the shifters? how's access?

|They are Salsa Bell Lap bars. Quite the comfortable bars. And the shifters are old school Grip Shift I got on ebay. I had the bike on 7 speed because of the shifters, but because I got barcons, it's an 8 speed now. The Grip Shifts are great shifters, one just has to get used to them.|

|I thought the Poprad wasn't available as a frame/ fork only. Did you pick up the frame used, or did you just dump ALL of the stock parts?|
|you can buy just the frame from any dealer||offrhodes|

|Both my local dealers quoted me prices of about $600 for frame and fork.|
Sep 7, 2001 10:45 AM
|I only got the frame/fork. All other parts were from on old road bike/mtb, and the wheels were built at www.foysbikeshop.com here in town.|

|where did you get that stem? How long? How much rise?
I'm looking for something exactly of the sort!
Sep 13, 2001 5:10 AM
|That'd be a Profile BOA stem. 40 degree rise. Performance has 'em in 90, 105, and 120mm extensions for $30. I'm not sure what other sizes they're available in.
It's a mtb stem, so it probably has a 25.4 clamp diameter. I've found with two bolt / removeable faceplate stems that I can get away with using a 26.0 bar with a 25.4 clamp, but I'm sure it's not the best idea I've ever had.

|Thanks Ray, that's what I had figured.
I'm a bit leery of putting a 25.4 clamp around my 26.0 Salsa bars (which actually measure 25.8 or so, according to our micrometer.....)
