The bike shop I worked in the late 80’s (when back from Uni) sold Funks. I could never afford one but did covert them. Really very nice but not in that OP’s colour scheme. We sold Nishiki’s too. I do remember a customer coming in when the back end had come undone 🙂
We also had the first pair of Rockshoxs in the UK. Damn they were flexy!Posted 4 years agocoatesyMember
Not just the short stays that are back in fashion, the Al-Mega also had a long top tube/short stem, and tweaked head and fork angles to compensate, essentially all of those things that Gary Fisher “invented” ten years later with his Genesis geometry.Posted 4 years ago
Anyone else remember the Saracen appearing as a Halfords Carrera with full XT kit ayear later, and getting rave reviews from the mags?qwertyMember
I used to ride mine wearing either cut down purple 501s or some black full length Troll lycra with multi coloured paint flecks on em. Purple and green Pony Axo attatched to Odyssey triple traps via Power Grips. Red & blue Nevisport fleece top. First bike I took to the Lake District that was.Posted 4 years ago
