Control Tech oldschool bar ends

I am not 100% sure but I think that these are genuine Control Tech bar ends.
Originally bar ends where available as cinch type and internal wedge type, today all bar ends are cinch type, but in 1991 it was not strange to run a pair of internal wedge type neon green onZa bar ends on [...]

The front cage is made of aluminium, the back cage is steel. The pulleys are riding on ball bearings, they are still very smooth. The top [...]

Bontrager 120 mm ahead stem

This is a genuine Bontrager stem that is 120 mm long with a 10 degree rise *mind blown*.
1 1/8 size.
Seems like US vintage MTB freaks goes off anything drop bar. Just put a drop bar on any ugly vintage steel MTB (or toothpaste like soldered alu bottle frame) and their jaws hit the floor while [...]

ODI Yeti logo grips

These handlebar grips where marketed as “own a pair of Yetis for five bucks” IIRC.
Very funny advertising because I remember I wanted to purchase a Yeti ARC in 1993, and it had a neat price of ‘only’ 1895 dollar, remember though that included a Yeti designed Answer Accu-Trax rigid fork.
Wow what a bargain, jus think [...]

Bridgestone MB-2 1990 frame and fork

Bridgestone was a unique cycle brand during the early 90′ies. The company was lead in the US by a person that is categorized into what is popularly referred to as a “retro grouch”.
