1987 Haro Master
My new rider
I traded away my 87 rider frameset and acquired this one. Most parts were moved over to this one.The powdered frame will with stand more abuse.The new Redline flights,Peregrine clamp,and 9/16 pedals were exchanged for light parts described below. The Group 1 stem came lose from the quil and was takin to a machine shop. It was replaced.
This bike was built using parts that best accomodates my riding. I used the parts that were either my favorite and or light weight. I like the new Skyway Tuff II's because they offer the sealed bearing and a little flex on landings. I also weighed chrome Peregrine 48's and the Skyway Tuff's on a scale and they weighed in exactly the same. 48 spoked wheels are not necessarily lighter than mags.The one piece crank was used also because they offer me the flex again and they tend to run lighter than 3 piece cranks. I'm not gonna break opc's doing the Flatland I ride so it's cool.
The Odyssey seat clamp(felt lighter than the Peregrine clamp) is what I ran bitd so that came off my old bike and was used here. About 6 inches was cut off the no name cro-mo seat post for weight reasons again. My favorite pedal of all the KKT was used with my cranks. The Team Master stem which came from a 89 Master Bashguard is my fave. The top cap sits far from the stem bolt and offers alot more clearance for a wrench than the Group 1 stem. It also makes up for not having a layback seat post since the stem is positioned so far forward more than the Group 1's. Picture 4 is the frameset just before build time.
This isn't a bike for the purist but it makes a really comfortable light weight rider for me.
Thnx for looking.
