    I am always looking to add to this pile of purple for my Wife's bike....

    I am starting to put together an old school build for my wife's bike. She has a 1992 Yo Eddy that she would lke to get re-painted Pink and Purple. Here is what I have been able to collect so far. If you have anything for sale, please let me know.

    Yes , purple is making a come back..... at least at the Snyder household....

    Here's what my Bontrager looked like when I bought it. The prior owner loves purple.
    American Classic seatpost
    Paul Motolite brakes; not made like this anymore, they accept cantilever pads
    Control Tech bar

    None of these parts are purple anymore.

    I'll try and find a picture, though I think the only ones I have are of it standing in a snow bank, but I had an S-works M2 in 92 that was that goofy Purple Haze color with almost all 3D violet components from Ringle, Grafton, etc. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but boy was it fugly when I was finished building it.

    My current purple "spare parts":

    NOS Mcahine Tech hubs laced to NOS Bonty Maverick rims with purple nipple and NOS Control Tech Ti QR's

    NOS Ringle H20

    NOS Control Tech handlebar

    NOS Gravity Research Brake levers

    NOS mahine Tech Cable hangers

    NOS Onza Chill pills

    Bullseye 32 Hole Front Hub

    USE seatpost

    NOS 21 tooth compact chain ring

    4 x X-Lite Ti Brake bolts, lots of other purple bolts

    and going with a seperate project.... Ringle stem, USE bars with integrated bar ends, and lots more bolts!

    thats quite enough spare purple me thinks

    Ta, Djuc Wun

    Oh have I got stuff in my generally permanent collection for you then.... NOS 28hole ATAK hubs in purple, NOS 28H Ambrosio CC22 rims in purple, various New Kooka chainrings in purple, NOS clark's easyglide teflon coated brake cables with neon pink housing, NOS neon pink or purple ODI Mushroom grips, purple bar ends, purple chainring bolts, and I'll see what else I got.

    Myself I tend to prefer blue, green, gold or red annodized bits. I only use the purple stuff if nothing else is available.

    my former ugly bike (since its purple theme time)...

    Bought the Mountain Bik Carbon frame NOS on Ebay for $151US and sold it about 18 months later to a carbon fiber frame collector for $1250US after having used it for about 7 road rides total (I dislike road bike geometry so I build my road training bikes out of MTBs).

    That looks suspiciously like an Aegis frame. Wonder if they are one and the same? Also, I am the previous owner of Loony One's Bontrager. I sure hope purple is making a come back, cause I love it! Also any anodized bits in blue, green, gold, and red.
    By the way, I work at a shop that has some NOS Sun 26" purple anodized rims, 32 hole, just lyin' around. I'd use 'em but I've gone 29er, and ain't lookin back!

    Actually the company that made the mountain bik frames, and which also made all of trek's early-mid 80s bonded carbon frames, had a corporate SPLIT after arguing between the designers/engineers on what was a better construction method, bonding subsections together or a 1-piece monocoque. My Mountain Bik is a 1-piece. The boys who wanted 1-piece construction formed Kestrel. The boys who wanted multiple-piece construction formed Aegis. In other words, the Bik frame predates both Kestrel and Aegis (which is one reason why Tucker offered me $1250US for it - he's also the guy who bought that carbon screaming V someone else posted in the Mantis thread) and is one RARE puppy, especially as mine was still nearly new condition (it had all of about 150kms of pavement time on it). Kestrel of course exhibited original designs and made their frames look different than previous efforts from the original company. Aegis apparently couldn't come up with anything original so they just did 3-piece versions of the old Carbon Bik (it was a french brand with road and mtb models) designs.

    As to purple stuff being hard to find, you find lots of vintage stuff around, its new production and purple which is hard to find. Other than King and Kooka (now out of business), nobody really offered the color still for bicycle parts.

    Here's my tribute to the purple era. The front part of the frame is actually dark purple too, looks kinda blue in the pic.

    I was able to win races even if I was a full bike length behind because of those bar ends

    I dunno. I went hard for a bit with purple, but then it hit my why I've never dug it so much. I have spent a fair amount of time depurpling (and no blue, red, green...) my Arc. I will have two bikes with purple bits - and that is it.

    bushpig, what kind of purple parts do you have & are they in good condition? I might be interested in buy some of them from you--if you'd like to sell them. I love purple. I used to own 2 different purple bikes, but one was stolen by ex-hubby's old drinking buddy, the other one I sold to get some money to feed my kid. I miss my purple Rockadile Mongoose MTB--but knowing the idiot who stole it in 1993 it is probably thrashed so badly that even if I got it back it would be useless. Any way, now I have a new bike with dual suspension and although it isn't purple, it is very pink and would look sooooo pretty with purple parts added to it. Would appreciate it if you'd be willin' to sell me any good useable purple parts. e-mail me with your reply. Thanks, E. Dreamchaser

    ok at least blue cranks.....it is the missing link. Get those toplines ano'd if you have to. Hey Im just throwing this out there, I think most would agree, it just looks unfinished due to the cranks, to me anyway.

    Could put the blue graftons from the Yo but that would ruin the Yo's build

    I disagree. Normally you would be singing to the choir with the colored cranks and hubs.
    but that bike is already colored to perfection. Those silver cranks need to stay on that particular bike. The hubs maybe....
    But that would be ruining that wheel build which looks like it was built specifically for that bike.
    Compaq rims, blue nips, ti spokes. Removing those wheels from that bike would also be a crime.
    That bike also wouldnt look the same without those tires.
    Dont change a thing..
    Awesome looking Fat!
