Cool big_smile  now i don't have to fill up the other thread with my chit chat.  I ordered the half link master and the .5 - 1mm wheel slammers.  See how that goes!  would much much rather tire up in there believe me.

Re: 2013 EF Eddie Fiola Proformer

Oh man!! I would love to see this bike with a mallet stem, epoch headset,2pc SR/GT disc/ring combo etc. this bike is based off the classic GT design really. the true last year of the classic design IMO. is the 86' PFT of this frame style. The frames later were lower end GT's  or the double bend down tube. That being said there's nothing like taking advantage of today's technology. You take this frame style modernized with high quality components. LOOKOUT!!!! Going out on a limb that this rare bike rides oh so smooth..... This bike just reentered the word RAD back into the dictionary! Instant fav. Just submitted a 86' PFT would like to have both these bikes in the same pic.


That's right I'm different. I like dyno's!!!!!

Thank you!!  And to be honest I can't wait to see some mallet stem builds and all also.  I got my pft when I was 14 in 1987 so that's my sweet spot.  I'm in love with the double bend down tubes.  Eddie want's to remake those and make it in dayglow pink, put me on that list too!! And got to get Aparijo to sign it of course lol.  I can dream, right?  But I guess my point is, if I would of had a gt 84-86 I most definitely would of went a more classic route, but since I didn't, I don't feel it's my place and rather see others who lived it do it.  But I had been wanting a new school bike like you said, with modernized quality components.  Feels nice and tight.  Thanks again! big_smile

Re: 2013 EF Eddie Fiola Proformer

The big question, how does it ride? I am sure it must be great, with Eddies input on geometry etc...

Why hello there.  Trust me, new school geometry is a first for me, that's why I got my seat up there, but it rides great.  Only took a few spins on it, waiting for my half link and gyro plate so I can finish off the brakes, but with the thunderbolt crank and the hazard lite rims everything smooth as can be.  I'm also 5' 6" so I am pretty comfortable on any 20" long as the seat isn't slammed.  I have plenty of room.

Re: 2013 EF Eddie Fiola Proformer

Ok!  So I used rigid pipe cutter and knocked off some of steer tube, got my gyro plate in so was finally able to run the brakes!  No half link yet.  Lifted the post just a little bit more for more comfortable riding.  Also, I know the grips are long but when I look at most of the new grips out there they are long, BUT, I think it would look better and ride better (for me) if bars were cut an inch or so.  will probably happen.

thanks big_smile   no word on forks being sold separately but I would think they're still fulfilling orders.  perhaps in the near future they will crank some forks more parts out smile  20.5 TT

Re: 2013 EF Eddie Fiola Proformer

ok, cool, wow it does look longer than that. I would love some forks like that. I was never a big fan of the og gt's, I fell in love with gt in the same manner as you, with the 87 PFT, Which remains my all time fave bike to date.Whoever reworks that in a logical manner, will get my attention.that said, I would love a pft true blue reissue.no changes at all. AND I would dig a pft reworking with minimal details, maybe integrated ht, mid bb, and better dropouts, but no geometrical changes.
