The time machine, a 100% original classic Craigslist find. I replaced a few parts for fit and comfort, but it still rides like the classic mountain bike of yesteryear.

  • Frameset: 1984 Univega Alpina Sport. Triple butted lugged steel.
  • Wheelset: Suntour hubs on Ukai rims.
  • Tires: Bontrager Jones AC
  • Brakes, Shifters, Derailleurs, Crankset: Shimano, I think this group was one step below Deore at the time.

  • Pedals: Suntour Beartrap with unknown cages
  • Cassette: Nope, it’s a 6 speed freewheel
  • Handlebar: Titec version of the Jeff Jones H-Bar

  • Stem: Velo Orange 1 1/8 threadless to 1″ quill adapter with a Specialized stem
  • Saddle: Avocet Racing II – This was purchased new by me back in the late 80’s when I worked at The Bicycle Shop in Pleasant Valley, NY.
Avocet Racing II from the late 80’s, still comfortable today.
