    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.

    Here is an early 90s Vertex. This was abandoned at a place I used to live. Decent barn find.

    '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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/mikado1.jpg">
    <img src="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/mikado8.jpg">
    <img src="https://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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/fcf1.jpg">
    <img src="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/fcf6.jpg">

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

    <img src="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/thunderbolt1.jpg">
    <img src="https://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="https://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="https://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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/ed1.jpg">
    <img src="https://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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/teamchance1.jpg">

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

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

    1991 R.M. Hammer

    <img src="https://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="https://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="https://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.

    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.

    ... marinoni 'humorous' details ...

    Hey - a few detail pix of the things that may/may not make the Marinoni humorous - the tubing is in fact SL & was used because they didn't know whether they were going to continue with MTBs & they had these sets in the shop - when I visited them in 89, they said that it hadn't been a good experience & weren't sure where they were going - the lugs were for the same reason - this bike is #44 of 75 made - the frame is chromed & then painted.







    The headsets were also a bit silly - Shimano 600 with the fluted nuts - road stuff, but I gotta tell ya - it hasn't given me a bit of trouble in over 20 years of pretty good abuse.



    The U-Brake, while a really great brake [imho], should never have been put under a chainstay - if it's dry, great, but in the wet & muck [especially DH] never mind, it ain't even slowin' you down let alone stoppin' .



    The stem was also 'road' - a very lovely NITTO quill that worked OK but just didn't feel right - I swapped it out for a Tioga T-BONE, which was a pretty good stem in 87 - the brake levers were the long Shimano's & I swapped them out for some shorter ones that I still find perfect for my hand size.





    Anywho, I hope this hasn't bored you all to tears - while these bikes were somewhat OFF, if you get my drift, they were kinda neat & have enjoyed owning this one & riding the crap out of it - doug

    Awww, THAT brings back memories!!
    I had one of those rampages, much abused (even missing paint by the headtube as the previous owner thought there was a crack in the frame, and burnt the paint off, only to find no crack)
    Built it up as the wife's first real mtb about 6 years ago, then when she moved to full squish we sold it off. One of VERY few bikes I really regret getting rid of as it's her nostalgia bike.
    I'd love the chance to reunite her with an old friend, if you decide to dump it could you let me know?

    Nope it's regular the picture is reversed from using the laptop for some reason. I bought the bike a couple of years ago from the original owner, I love the frame, I would love to get it repainted some day. Does anyone know if it was factory paint or powder coated? I intend on keeping this one, I wanted to build up a new AM bike and the wife said one of my bikes gotta go, bye bye custom DH bike hehe

    I've also posted this on retrobike. Here's my restored 1993 Catalyst. I have lusted after a handbuilt Brodie for almost 2 decades and got lucky on craisglist last summer. It's now my daily commuter.

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.

    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.

    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="https://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="https://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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/ed1.jpg">
    <img src="https://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="https://yoda.densan.ca/kmr/bikes/teamchance1.jpg">

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

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

    1991 R.M. Hammer

    <img src="https://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="https://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="https://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=248093">THIS</a>one.
    Regarding your repainted fusion, looks beautiful. I have a pre-1988 rocky mountain tantalus that I would love to repaint. Could you suggest a place to have it done?

    None of them have ridden as good as this bike. My Tange Prestige UltimateVoodoo Bizango is also livelier than any 853 bike I have owned.

    The caption says: "Syncros parts. Titanium forks and the world's lightest hollow nivachrome crankset aren't available yet in Japan."

    The red text on the first page says: "It might be due to the loud hard rock playing, but Syncros parts are full of spirit."

    Brodie Romax

    Saw this chained up and had to take pics and thought I should share.

    A full fillet brazed Brodie Romax from 1988 or early 1989. Of most interest is the gatorblade, it has raked legs with tange prestige stickers.

    Despite being a city beater, the paint is original, with only a few bad rusty spots.

    I wanted to leave a note offering to buy but did not have a pen. Found a pen and paper and went back but it was gone.

    just dug this out of the basement - have a few projects on the go and am thinking this will be one for the new year

    brazed brodie - no serial # (perhaps the paint is to thick on teh BB)

    need to either settle on a set of syncros forks or dig dig and dig some more to find another gator blade - any thoughts, is it worth waiting for a brodie fork?

    Marinoni Moose, circa 1985. I'm sorting out the fit for a dirt drop build, so it's not much to look at right now, but the geometry is interesting, long stays and plenty of rake on the fork. Columbus tubing, roller cams on the forks and chainstays, nice lug work, and I love the 'Italian flag' fade paint job. I have no idea what the original build was like, the only parts left when I bought the frameset were the brake calipers and one Mavic crank arm.

    Adjustable length. It was the first iteration of the cranks, before they were readily available. They tossed them into some ads early on and eagle-eyed folks spotted them. Never went to production that way (as far as I know).
    Show me your Toads. Old Brodies, too.

    Great Brodie!

    Sweet Sovereign! Is it a 16/17" and is it for sale?
    Just posted on a WTB on PB in search of a steel Sovereign or Expresso (17" or 16")

    This bike is still a work in progress, Brodie Kinetic (2001 I think...originally a blue colour scheme). When I got it was just the frame / fork / cranks.





    In the mail is an SS kit, some brake line, seat post and a 34T chainring.

    From my measurements it's a 19" frame but the geometry seems smaller than most frames that size...in particular the reach (tt length). The sizing seems to suit me pretty well so maybe down the track some better upgrades will be warranted (wheels are really old, fork is the original manitou sx and stem / bar are some cheap old ones I had). For now I just want to get it going and rideable!!!

    Feels nice and light compared to some bikes I've had!

    this frame was found in dumpster behind Bikes on Broadway in 83. was ridden by B on B mechanic for a while then hung in garage till I got it as is in 2012. I looks like it was stolen at one point and badly splatter painted. It has the brazed Ritchey bars and a Ritchey decal but it has a crappy fork which looks to be orig with frame. My best guess is that this one of the Japan tig welded Ritchey's that were rejected by Tom and ended up at B on B. ????

    I believe that your Ritchey is a first/second year Fisher Montare.
    End of '83/'84.

    I guess I can add my Norco Sasquatch to this thread.



    anyone happen to have any old Norco decals laying around? I really wish I could find the head badge for this thing...

    Wow this huge early frame cleaned up really good. Hard to believe that Japan welded this frame. Excellent brazing.

    I believe Fisher bikes put out a green one like my bike in the above pic and a pink/red one as seen on the fork steer in late '83... Mine is also a large...22" 'ish seat tube.
    My bike seems to be all stock, except for the tires, judging from the pedals on the dumpster bike, as mine has the same....I thought they had been replaced.
    I guess a rebirth from a dumpster to lovingly rebuilt in Canada would count as "Canadian Steel". It does look good raw.

    I'm curious about the paint colors as I do see some green over the red/pink on the raw bike...
    Does anybody know?
    Maybe the red/pink was late '83 and green was painted over for '84?
    Although my buddy had a gray/silver Montare he though was a '84 of which he bought new.

    I asked CK but he said he was "not an expert", who else would be?

    I would guess these two bikes were made at the same factory around the same time Ritchey split from Fisher could be from the same order with different decals. Mine was green& a maroon colour ser # H03369. Is your # similar?

    You maybe correct...I found this a while ago and bookmarked it.
    Here is the link to the article.
    home.comcast.net/~cyclofiend/bikes/Montare83.html
    And here is a little blurb from it or just search '83 fisher images. Couldn't post the pic.s from it for some reason so I just took a screen shot.

    {The Montare was the first production frameset through "MountainBikes". "Designed by Tom Ritchey" appears on the right chainstay. (the following year had "Designed by Gary Fisher"). Plenty of clearance in that frame, eh? The photo above left was probably pretty early on, as it still had the big motorcycle brake levers. At some point, I realized that they had a crack running through them, so I upgraded to some other levers."}.

    From this I assume that my green bike is an '84 (says GF designed on the chainstay) and do believe that yours could be a '83 by judging from the paint color on the fork steer.
    I was not aware that Ritchey put out any tig welded bikes this early.
    I could be missing some of the points of the thread though....?

    I spoke to Pippin Osborne today and he believes this bike was tig welded at the Toyo factory 1982 by a young apprentice by the name of Chris DeKerf working under the eyes of Tom Ritchey himself I will ask Chris myself. A Ritchey frame welded by a Canadian in Japan. Now thats Canadian steel!

    would that be true of all Norcos of that era? my '84 Sasquatch looks a lot like your Bigfoot, and used to have the same head badge...

    There were ALOT of Japanese bicycle manufacturing plants in the early 80's I think Norco's were made at the Nishiki parent Co "Kawamura" which was probably welded in Japan before Norco's were made in Tiawian

    My first mtb bike was the Sasquatch and it wasn't cheap in 81. I remember exactly $790 [drained my bank acc] had to have it the second I saw it. My buddy bought a Maruishi MT18 on the same day and we off roaded those first mtbs everwhere toured with racks, rode same crazy stuff until I saw my first Ritchey then there was nothing else. Fond memories of my Norco, that was the beginning of something more life altering than Rock & Roll.

    there's a Maruishi AT-15 at a pawn shop near my house. looks to be in good condition...bullmoose bars, nice blue paint...I haven't stopped to actually see what components are on it, but I think he's asking only $75 for it.

    Chris replied promptly…..{gotta love the customer service} saying he did work at the Toyo factory only for a month and he wasn't welding Ritchey's. He confirmed it was a Japanese production bike this one for Canadian export and others that were identified in the MountainBikes catalogue as production frame sets selling for quite a bit less. The tig welded frames sure ride different than the fully brazed bikes that were sculptured. Both nice just one is over the top. R

    Much obliged Geoff. I had seen the first, but missed that second colour shot.

    Do you recall if the entire extended seatpost area was sleeved (as this picture suggests)?

    Im not an alterego of Geoff. Seattubes always had those extensions.
    No, I am not retro.... I am way ahead of my time...

    I know they are extended, I can't recall if the seat tube was sleeved at the top tube / seat stay junction. But thanks anyway not-Geoff !

    I think the 1990 was the balls, but the 1988 (I think) with the front and rear u-brakes was even cooler. I love those Sycros forks.
