    New retro build

    Hi, I'm just about to build myself a post modernist revival retro bike and need some advice please on the build components.

    I've sourced myself a 2002 Santa Cruz Heckler frame, I was wondering what 7" triple clamp forks can I put on this that would still be post modern retro? Also what hydraulic disc brakes?

    Thanks for your help guys.

    define post modern retro please... there's not much retro about a 7" travel dual crown fork or a 2002 Heckler.

    One of the few real retro long travel dual crown I can think of would be a Bullet Bros ZZYZX whose design goes back like 6 years now.

    I noticed that, now if only I could track down the Neon Pink Boulder Gazelle frameset I sold years ago. Wonder what state its in now. Or the Mantis ProFloater, or any of the other classics I'm let out of my collection.
