1995 Robinson Pro Team Model XL

Dated 94 but released as 95 model

Bought this frame & fork NOS in May 2008 and commenced the build.  In September 2008 i completed the build.  I tried to keep it as original as possible.  I managed to buy a set of wheels with the hubs you see in pic laced to sun mistral rims but unfortunately the rims where really pitted and a mint rechrome was not guaranteed.  I therefore had the hubs relaced with new spokes to a brand new set of sun rims.  They look similar to original rims and are much stronger as they are double wall and the original sun mistrals where not.  Note the opposite lacing of the spokes into the hubs.  This was done because it prevents the spokes flexing over the outside of hub causing marks or indents.  The spokes have a more direct route from hub to rim without the need to bend over the hub as it makes its way to the rim.  This design was also popular during the early to mid 90's amongst racers from these parts as it was different to conventional setting.  I upgraded the brakes to brand new shimano cantilevers, keeping the style the same but with a modern set up.  The headset is upgraded to a Chris King.  These headsets where around in 94 so you may consider this original for the era even though not original for bike.   Some things you cannot see are the Profile titanium spindle and hop up kit.  This just helps reduce weight and makes for a cleaner finish.
This bike consists of the following parts:
  * Robinson Pro XL chromoly frame, 20.5" tt * Robinson chromoly fork, 1 1/8" * GT Pro .65 bars, width 29"  rise 9"  * GT Pro Series stem, 50mm  * ODI Longneck grips * Odyssey lever * Shimano BR-R550 cantilever brake * Animal Illegal Linear cable * GT double bolt seat clamp * GT Drop Nose seat * GT seat post * Profile bottom bracket w/ titanium spindle * GT Power Series crank arms 180mm * GT Power Series alloy chainwheel 43T * Shimano 16T freewheel * GT platform alloy pedals * KMC Super Lite chain * GT high flange super lace sealed bearing hubs, 36h * Sun Rhyno Lite Rims, 1.75  * Very good Stainless Spokes w/ Brass nipples * GT Megabite Tyres, 2.0 & 1.75 * Crupi frame savers * Robinson padset
