1993 A2T

This is my 1993 A2T. I bought it from a good friend and riding buddy who bought it new, but who's wife made him thin out the stable some 12 years ago. Some of the components have been replaced, but I still have the original 1 1/8 threadless Mag 21 shock and steel quill stem. The "Full Speed" stickers were his doing.The drivetrain, brakes and shifters are all OEM XT 7 speed. About 1 1/2 years before he sold it to me, he had me tune up the bike which needed a wheelset badly (sidewalls were severely dished from the canti brakes); replaced with an LX hub wheelset, replaced the brake pads and the front brake needed a link wire; the parts cost about $100; I think I bought it from him for $150.00.

With your forum name I am surprised that the Cuda has not been set up as a single speed...unless you have a SS frame just for those rides?

Yes, I actually have 3 Mtb singlespeeds a Bianchi SASS, a custom Bontrager Race light (with Surly Sub-11 dropouts welded on) and a Rocklobster. While I like riding my singlespeeds, I also like vintage bikes with original parts like my Cuda..

I'm a visual person, how about some photos of those fine bikes?

I'm especially interested in custom Bonty Race Lite, it sounds very similar to my old one. I bought a 1992 Bonty S.S. from one of the team riders back when the Bontrager Team travelled around in an old 70's American station wagon. The ex-team rider still races but skateboarding is his passion and he started Cohort USA Skateboards, Cohort specializes in vintage style decks for pool and vert ramp skating. If any of you skate and remember the good ol' stuff, cool stuff and a good guy for sure... here is a link to his site:

http://www.cohortusa.com/

Back in the 90's at InterBike, the Rocklobster booth was running a funny sound loop, it was Homer Simpson's voice saying "MMM... Rocklobster!" instead of "MMM... Donuts!"

(I've attached a photo of my old Bontrager Race Lite)
