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 (6061 T6 aluminium) •    Forks: 2012 Sinz Stealth Pro Alloy •    Headset: Promax PI-1 sealed •    Stem: Promax Impact •    Handlebars: Box Maximus Pro (28.25” x 8”) •    Grips: Turner •    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 •    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 •    Tyres: Maxxis DTH (20" x 1.75") •    Tubes: Maxxis •    Number Plate: Box Phase 1! Thanks for looking!
