2011 Crupi Pro XL

My first new school ride!

So having decided to go racing again after 30 years, I thought I should get myself a new school race bike. Having never ridden anything later than an ’87 Haro, it’s fair to say that I didn’t know very much about new school race bikes other than they looked a lot lower and longer than the bikes I was used to. Reading (and starting) various threads and posts on here and elsewhere, I started to narrow down my search for something suitable and after a great deal of deliberation and procrastination, finally ended up with a custom built bike!!! Not my original choice but when the opportunity presented itself, I couldn’t resist!! To cut a long story short, I was offered a deal on NOS from a recently closed-down race shop. The selection of frames and parts was quite limited, but mostly decent, high quality stuff. Based around a 2011 Pro XL frame, the bike has a mixture of largely Crupi, Promax and Sinz parts. With a limited choice of colours but inspired by the 1988, 24-carat gold Hutch Trick Styler, I went for a white frameset with a splash of gold in the form of a few, matching gold ano parts from Promax. The only thing I had to compromise on was the wheelset and pedals, though they will do just fine for now. Here's the full spec list:- • Frame: 2011 Crupi Pro XL (made from 6061 T6 Seamless Drawn and ovalised, aluminium tubing) • Forks: 2012 Sinz Stealth Pro Alloy • Headset: Promax PI-1 sealed • Stem: Promax Impact • Handlebars: Box Maximus Pro (28.25” x 8”) • Grips: Turner lock-on • Brake lever: Sinz • Brake caliper: Sinz • Brake pads: Promax • Seatpost Clamp: Crupi Rhythm quick release • Seatpost: Crupi alloy • Seat: Crupi Titanium-Lite • Cranks: Promax HF-2 (175mm) • Bottom bracket: Promax EX-1 sealed (Euro) • Chainring: Renthal SR4 Ultralite (44T) • Pedals: VP 566 • Chain: KMC Z • Chain tensioners: Promax C-1 • Freewheel: Nervar (16T) • Wheelset: Generic alloy rims (20" x 1.75" x 36H) and hubs (10mm axles)  • Tyres: Maxxis DTH (20" x 1.75") • Tubes: Maxxis • Number Plate: Box Phase 1 (with custom graphic sheet by Danger UK)!
