    Bring back purple!

    I'm sure how appropriate this thread is, but if you like purple... speak up.

    I'm a big fan of purple. I would love to see Chris King bring back purple to their entire line up. Purple hubs, purple headsets, and the new purple bottom brackets.

    If you like purple, and want Chris King to do purple again email them. Make it known to them there is a market for such a color.

    http://chrisking.com/company/comp_contactus

    I just did. Hopefully other purple lovers will do the same.

    I suggested to King that they do a limited run of turquoise and 3DV a year or so ago. The fellow who replied back commented that he liked the idea, but they would have to consider it based on the market.

    Cane Creek obviously showed a 110 headset in 3DV at interbike. Still not listed as an available color on their site.

    I'm not really a HUGE fan of 3DV, but I like it. I fell into a 3DV phase recently kind of as an afterthought. I posted a question here asking where all the 3DV and Turquoise parts had disappeared to since you really don't see them as often as you might expect. For whatever reason that triggered a desire to build up the McMahon as a 3DV nightmare. It's getting there.

    My brother had a teal Rockadile years ago with purple EVERYTHING. It looked cool as hell in 1992, One of my friends had it in his shed and I saw it a while back and thought oh no... That thing is hideous.

    rad. an opportunity to post this pic yet again. the new chromag bars (granted, 30" o/s riser bars may have limited interest / relevance amongst the vintage crowd. nevertheless: cool!).

    I used to have a bell helmet that was purple and everyone would laugh when I went out for a ride "Hey nice PURPLE HELMET!!!!"

    The helmet had a sudden crash and was returned using the crash replacement. Talk about feeling like a D#ck Head, what was I thinking?

    True story.
    There are no "mistakes"; only learning curves.

    I saw a green Niner single speed with purple Ringle Zooka and other purple parts on it at the local bike shop, recently. As much as I hate purple and 29ers, it looked good.

    I like the welds. Retro for sure. Nice piece. A high tech wedgy. Crap, I've got a purple King 1" threaded head bearing on my old bike. I got it because I broke the stearer tube on my Zochi XC 300 and never wanted to be there again.

    Eventually these will make it on a build for the wife. Thanks for posting the link from Universal Cycles. I've been sitting on the headset for years and wanted some hubs to go with it. Now I have a matching set.

    Would think sitting on the headset would have beeen uncomfortable...adding those hubs sounds downright painful

    We all need to band together and convince Chris King they need to bring back Purple.

    They have already done the impossible. They are offering their R45 hubs with Campagnolo freehub bodies shortly... Why can't they start up a tank of acid and add in purple dye?

    I put NOS 3dv all over my build several years ago and have regretted it ever since. For me, I should have gone black ano or silver. No funds to justify changing it out. Just sayin..............

    If the stuff is still in good condition, ebay it. It should sell for much more than the comparable black or silver parts.

    My tribute to purple. A 1992 Stumpjumper complete with reflectors and original tires. The owner said it was hanging in his garage for 15 years. He wasn't kidding. I even got the original owners manual. It's getting dark in Ohio so the pics aren't too great.



    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.

    Not sure if I want to go through with the effort yet, but here is a photo of the bike with it's 3dv parts. Phil Wood hubs are custom anodized purple. They came out a little dark but still match pretty nicely.

    I for one think it came out great. I like the 3DV of the selected components as a complement to the lavender color of the frame. Only thing I'd change-I'd lose the bar ends

    Which shifters are you using?

    7 speed XT thumb shifters utilizing the ghost click for an 8 speed set up. Thanks for the compliments. Folks have seen it posted here before and are probably a little tired of it. I think I am a little with the 3dv

    Here is the bike with all the accesories stripped off - i like it this way better, light and simple. Ive still been toying with the idea of switching the frame to another old school one but im not sure. Maybe a black monster fat or something that would match the ringle purple hubs and stem. Ti would be cool as well.

    Thats a good looking bike and build there! Very well thought out....right down to the use of lime green grips and housing to match the decal. Excellent!

    when I worked at the LBS back in the day, we had a saying- "friends don't let friends ride purple". It changed to neon when that fad came out too.

    I bought this Yo in the back a few years ago with the intent of putting a more masculine paint job back on it. Have not done that yet, so technically, it's post worthy.

    Puuullleasseee don't paint it. That is a beautiful paint job. If you can't handle it, there's plenty of people secure enough to rock it.

    Great bike. Build it up already!

    Pink is the new purple

    This is how I'm building up my XXL Race. It's a work in progress - maybe I need more purple to accent the pink...you know...to make it more manly.

    I have finally met my life goal.

    I present to you my Lynskey Pro29 with the elusive 3DV color scheme.

    Build with choice parts with the weight weenie mindset. I'll present the parts list shortly. The Stan's goup finally sealed up the tires. Took 3 overnight sessions and adding more goup and shaking + rolling + laying flat.

    Hoping to get a ride in this afternoon at the local single-track.

    Found out at Interbike last week that White Industries and Chris King are both making purple parts again.

    Is CK producing for stock?

    They did a limited run this year, I knew that, and ordered some, but this would be news some of my customers will be excited about if it's true...
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Pro-Stop full floating brakes (mechanically actuated hydrolic) on Pulstar hubs with Mountain Cycles Suspenders.


    1991 Cannondale SE 1000


    I have changed the tires and saddle to something more appropriate. I am doing a bit of detailing and will try to get some better pic's and start a thread on this bike in awhile. In the mean time...
