    Canadian Steel! (let's see yours)

    It is kind of embarrassingly that I grew up in northern British Columbia, not far from the bridge to nowhere (tm) and then across Canada, but I only have one Canadian bike. I've posted it before and still haven't gotten around to the needed resto, but at least I have a slightly better picture. This was the personal bike for Bushpig #2, Brenskin Bagdonis and now donated to my hoard. He and I went nuts designing our perfect rides between 1988 and 1989. His bike has a lot of the features we wanted, right down the the Ibis-clone paint.

    So here is my Canadian bike. In the future I hope to have a lot more like Rocky Mountain Wedge and Tantalus, Brodie, DeKerf, Off Road Toad, and even humorous lugged Marinoni's. So, if you've got'em, post 'em!



    p.s. Canadian Ti and Al is welcome too!

    Been through on my way up 16 to catch the ferry to K town (quite a ways from mid-town, no?). I spent the mid 80's up there saving sinking fishing boats when I was a kid. By the way, the rear axle is actually 130 spacing. Miss-listed. Looks like BE has new 135's listed, though.

    ...and now back to BP's normal Canadian Steel post.

    My 87 Blizzard. I have the bull moose bars but they're too wide and I don't have the nards to cut them. Seat post is in the bike room too, not sure why, I shined it up and never put it on. (I have something to do tonight now) Plenty more Rocky's but I'll get to it later.

    I can get in on this fer sure. My DeKerf, its been many things and is now in linbo on it's way to being an off-road touring bike:



    1996 Sovereign. Crack fixed, cable guides changed/removed, disk mounts added, powdercoated the blue of the bike that broke my back, and updated components where needed.

    Then:



    Now:




    This bike is a big deal to me as it was my first serious set-up post injury. It's fast and I like it, it's got the best of both modern and oldish. It may one day be restored if I ever feel I have enough money and time to feel like spending them on my bikes looks. Oh, I long for that day.

    A 1989 Stratos that I used to own. Rocky's first aluminum bike, and the bike Cindy Devine won gold in the downhill and bronze in the slalom at the unofficial1989 World Championships.

    'nother norco -'96 TNT

    nothing special about the build really, old pic here. It's now got avid ultimate levers & tri-align's on it and no bar ends on the white bros ti bar.


    Anyone know who built the TNT's? Prestige ultralight tubing TIG welded. Dem Canadians know how to build a nice riding mtn bike though!

    Has anyone ever talked to Toby at Toby Cycle Works in Vancouver about everybody he built for?

    I talked to a bunch of folks when I was up there that said most of the top end bikes and prototypes were were built by him during the 80s and 90s. As I understand it Toby is mostly doing just general welding work these days.

    Just picked up off Craigslist. Nice fillet brazed custom 1990 Rocky Mountain Tantalus with custom stem and straight blade fork also fillet. This bike was made by Derek Bailey. I'm pretty stocked, I worked at Rocky Mtn back in 1991 and had the chance to meet Derek and witness him building some fine bikes. My camera skill are pretty bad, the paint job is amazing in person (too bad for the bad touch up and the decals).
    Also the price was very low. Thought I would share.

    Can't you just say you paid through the nose and it has a big dent in the tube somewhere? Please, more pics more pics. That is a Tantalicious.

    Thanks for the responses, I Paid $157.20 that's $200 Canadian well worth it if you ask me. And yes there is a small dent in the top tube but not bad at all. I have been looking for a nice rocky for a while, it means a lot to me. I Love the saddle too.
    That's all the pics I have.

    I don't think it ever got posted here. Looked a lot like the prurple Toad in the bigger thread. I think it went for $800. Nice size, never built up. Damn.

    I was talking with the Tantalus seller as I've been looking for a nicer Rocky for a while, and it was a tough call not to pursue that fillet brazed beauty. Glad to see it went a good home and thanks for sharing the pics here.

    These bikes are hard to come by, but lately it seems to be getting easier. Perhaps the downturn is going pan out well for collectors ??

    I've got an 1983 Mikado Kamikaze, same parts basically as that Sasquatch but a different frameset in some important ways (like the american BB shell with a bolted in adapter to take euro BBs, and the gussets under the downtube behind the headtube). It came with original deer-head shimano derailleurs, Takagi XT crankset with all Al rings, alloy rims, dia-compe brakes, suntour shifters, etc. I got it almost all complete and still need to restore it but I'll part with it maybe to another canadian collector. Its kinda small for me and I already got myself an all original 1984 Rocky Mountain FatCityFlyer that's in near-mint shape. Crazy ass seatpost though...nearly THREE inches of adjustable offset but absolutely zero tilt adjustment. The frame has a really short toptube length too. I suspect it was based on a BMX Cruiser design with different dropouts and spacing for 15 speeds.

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/mikado1.jpg">
    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/mikado8.jpg">
    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/mikado9.jpg">

    Oh and since I've mentioned it... my FatCityFlyer... I've changed to some NOS Joe Murray Maximum Kevlar 2.2 tires since I took the pics, and I'm still trying to figure out some period grips to replace the damaged stock ones. I might just go with Magura Corkies or some Oury's maybe.

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/fcf1.jpg">
    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/fcf6.jpg">

    Plus everyone knows about my 1988 R.M. Thunderbolt already afterall...

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/thunderbolt1.jpg">
    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/thunderbolt6.jpg">

    There's also my 1987 R.M. Turbo which I'm in the process of rebuilding, this is how it was when I got it 18 months ago...

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/turbo1.jpg">

    And then there's my custom painted Oryx Team XC frame, and this is how a friend had it built (he painted it, rode it twice and then sold the frame to me, the wheels to a friend of his, etc).

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/willbike1.jpg">

    Then I have two True Norths, both late-90s frames... one a XC frame and the other a one-off urban frame (Hugh Black has only ever made TWO such frames and the other was intended for jump/freeriding riding as I recall). I've built the XC frame and its one of my loaner bikes currently, I haven't yet built the urban frame and would probably sell it if I found the right buyer.

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/ed1.jpg">
    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/truenorth1.jpg">

    and while I don't own them anymore but this is how they looked when I sold them...

    early 90s TeamChance (it was a canadian framed version of a Fat Chance, BC made frame semi-authorized by Chris Chance to test a lower-cost model for export sales)...

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/teamchance1.jpg">

    mid-90s Breezer Sky (another canadian-only model)...

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/sky1.jpg">

    1991 R.M. Hammer

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/hammer1.jpg">

    Think it was a 1992 (hazy on the year, figured it out in the past before I repainted it and now forgotten it) R.M. Fusion

    <img src="http://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/fusion1.jpg">

    and there are still others I could post but some have there own threads already like <a href="http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=248093">THIS</a>one.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread

    I don't want to bring the quality of this thread down, but I have a 1983ish Norco Stubblejumper in storage somewhere. I'm tempted to find it and SS it. I think it's in fairly good shape.

    That looks like the big, less-ghey, brother to my Stubblejumper.

    Anyway, I want to turn my Stubblejumper into a single speed cruiser type bike. I have a newbish question for anyone who can offer advice. I would like to replace the chrome v-bar handlebar/stem with something a little more modern, maybe even some riser bars and a short stem if I can find something cheap. But I question whether the head tube of bikes in 1983 are the right size. Any handlebar and/or stem advice for a 1983 Norco?

    Hey!

    I'm loving the pictures, but I just gotta say...

    Every night I go home and search "Brodie", "Toad", and "Rocky". Along with my other addictions, "SDG", "Altek", and "Deore DX". I punch these searches so much I've singlehandedly skewed eBay's suggested related search list.

    My point, and I do have one...is...doesn't this thread sort of work to increase the popularity of these frames? Should I be crushed that Bushpig has singlehandedly quadrupled the number of folks outside of BC who actually know what the hell an Off Road Toad is? Certainly the number of people searching auctions and want ad listings for "Romax" is going to increase by a factor of ten!

    Haven't you guys just 'outed' my frame before I've even found it in the first place?

    I expect an apology...or at the very least, to be pelted with stones. Please begin.

    Not a mountain bike, but it is Canadian steel. Made in Quebec by Procycle. Re-purposed for dirt.




    Thanks for looking.

    Tnt

    Hey Logbiter

    Norco built the TNT's they were second down from the team issue at the time. I had one until about 2000 when I broke the frame. Norco replaced it free with their best steel hard tail at the time which was a Rampage. I loved my TNT and wish I could of kept the frame.

    Recently given to me by a pro-roadie friend of mine (he owned it from new and it had sat in his garage for many years), was going to use as a daily-use beater, but now might restore. Any and all info on this bike accepted gratefully.

    How do you figure 87ish? The wishbone would make it 89-90ish or later.

    May be a 94/95 judging by the extra material on the head tube and 4130 decal. Super nice welds. Very nice score.

    Hardcore used to do most of the service on my bike.

    It facilitates your bike crumpling in half when you hit your first jump. Since jumps are dangerous, this is a safety feature, since you will want to avoid them.

    Oooh, that Bill B-frame is a beauty... Weirdest thing I've seen in a while, but still a beauty...

    That last Blizzard looks like it's a jump-bike now, if so I'm impressed it holds up... Or maybe I shouldn't be? Just feels like the old steel frames couldn't take that kinda abuse, but I might be totally wrong here...

    It's not really a jump bike, more of a cruiser, I'm too old for serious jumping

    The frame is very impressive though, beautiful ride. I've owned it from new, we've been though a lot together, still my favourite bike

    A "humorously lugged" Marinoni - I'm original owner ['87] - ride it a lot - came with some of the 'worst' ideas of the time [bio-pace, Ubrake under the chainstay] - still one of my favorite rides.

    Several people ion this thread have mentioned the Off Road Toad, built by Rod Kirkham. I lived in Vancouver from 1978 to 1992, and Rod is an old friend of mine. Here's some trivia for you. Rod used to race a Yamaha TZ-250 at the old Westwood road course, which is how we met. In 1980 (when I rode an all-Campagnolo Super Record, nickle-plated Dave Moulton criterium bike), on one of my regular visits to Randy Cunningham's shop at the time, Varsity Cycles, I saw that someone had moved to Vancouver from the States and then decided to leave their eighty-pound 1946 Schwinn WZ there to sell. I bought it, and started riding it around town. Rod really dug that bike.

    I remember meeting Derek. Maybe you remember Ted Pierson, who painted the Ritchey frames at Rocky Mountain in Richmond, BC in the 1980s. Ted had an original, chrome Cinelli B that I convinced him to buy from my good friend Lorne Atkinson.

    What kind of tubing is that Marinoni built from? Columbus, but the OR had a gray decal. Is that SP?

    Not if that's a 31.8 downtube. The rest could be SP I guess. The sticker is most likely just a general Columbus decal. Marinoni wasn't/isn't all that strict with sticking to proscribed tubesets.
