    The old Blizzards had a brazed on collar at the top of the extended seatpost. Not sure I'd call it sleaved though.

    I think it is a 2000, the 2001 Kinetic was Aluminum. Definately not as nice a riding bike as the Steel versions.

    Timing and patience. Could take years to land one unless you want to flash some good coin to coax someone out of theirs.

    Quite true. I had been looking for a set of Syncros Powerlite forks for over a year when I missed a NOS 1" specimen in the retrobike.co.uk for sale section. I logged in, saw the for sale advert, and immediately responded, but was a few minutes too late. The seller (from Holland) had just committed to sell to someone else (from Canada).

    Here is the tempting photo from the original advert.




    I obtained the username of the buyer and thus began my persistent (but polite) campaign to convince the new owner that these forks rightfully belonged on my rektek. It was about another 10 moths to a year before I finally convinced him to sell to me.

    Here they are on my back porch:



    and finally on the rektek:



    keep hunting. There has to be a set out there for you.

    Just not the ones on my bike.

    94 Fusion,nothing fancy, just a good solid ride. The Fusion is still a bread and butter bike for Rocky and a lot of Canadian bike shops.

    Cool bike! Very clean aesthetic. It might just be the angle of the pic, but the fork/head tube looks pretty steep in relationship to seat tube....do you know the geo?

    Yeah, the angle of the photo is enhancing the effect. Geometry is unknown, but after a short ride it seemed quick steering but not twitchy...

    Not sure of the year

    CL purchase today, what caught my eye were the levers for another build. And the seat that looks like I could fall asleep in it. If anyone out there knows RM Blizzards a year would be nice to know. When I was talking pics I noticed the cracked rear hub shell all the way around. Dura Ace to boot. Never seen that before. Tisk tisk shimano. And what were we thinking cutting down bars like that. I am sure it was a courier thing because in Vancouver the first bike messenger was around 81 and they were all on MTB's. A lot of fierce racers came from downtown.

    very early Peugeot MTB the model name "Nevada Series"

    Canadian Peugeot. by ProCycle {Quebec} made in Canada with mostly French groupo. Sachs deraileur with bash guard,{don't see to many bikes with those even shimano had those guards but few riders ordered them. Kindda a good idea but looked kidda geeky. power shifters and "dual" sachs drum brakes. But has freewheel with nice Stronglight cranks. Sorry I will have more pics later

    Thought it was a 96 turns out to be a 97 thanks to the fine folks in here for posting pictures. I just returned it from a life of civic duty as a grocery getter to a fun machine. It is still running on the original bottom bracket, headset and hubs, all of which are still smooth as silk. Upgraded the stem, bars and seat. Also replaced cassette, chains front sprockets and tires. Forgot how much fun this bike was!!

    93 Altitude

    It's a rubbish pic and not a final build, I just wanted to get it rideable first.



    I bought it as a frame only, with a stuck bb, on ebay.co.uk. It has Syncros ti post and bars, Raceface ti stem and I-Beam cranks.

    I may have to change the stem, it's an aheadstem with a short quill inside. It doesn't clamp all that tightly, I can feel it flexing...

    yikes you want to change that setup…..that ti syncros post sweet piece. If you could get a proper matching stem that would greatly improve the ride/look. Nice bike

    Very nice. I really like those Dekerfs. Kind of odd that outside of Canada, not a lot of people in the US have them. Seems like they are more popular in Europe.

    Forgot about this thread.

    The "rented mule" for when I need a Brodie fix and don't want to get the Sovereign dirty.



    Replaced the one I sold in 95. Found a first gen AMP fork for it since the build. On the to-do list.



    Built in Whistler, so honourary Canadian.



    Found on Kijiji. One of 5 Euphorias built by Jim Best. Redoing it in WI parts (cranks, BB, derailleurs, and RS disc wheels w. AMP calipers).



    Another Kijiji find, with one of the weirdest parts mash-up I've seen. On the list to redo.



    Another odd Kijiji find. Aluminum Gardin. On the to be built up list.





    And my recently completed murdered out (or as my buddy would say, black on black with black accents) resto-mod SS hot rod. Note to self: remember to get the acetone out and get rid of the stupid logos on the tires. Manager at the LBS said to remove the S and change the L to a D. Uh, no. Funny, but still no.

    not the team model but has the fillet brazed stem as an upgrade. A very well loved bike ready for adoption. If this looks familiar it was pictured on retrouk site 6 years ago.

    Here is my 1996 Norco Team Issue bike (brought as a frame only back in 1997). I'm currently using it as a spring/fall wet weather commuter bike. I'm thinking of rebuilding it, but can't decide whether to rebuild it back to 1996 configuration or use modern 10 speed components.
