    Tires and handlebar tape have changed over the years, but the Spooky magic is always the heart.

    Dusted this thing off for today's wet slog. It's been too long. Pretty soon I'll be stripping it down and giving it a well deserved upgrade to 11 speed, a new saddle, new stem, and possibly a new seat post and will then put it back into the regular rotation. It's too much fun to ride.



    PS: That's the cleanest it's been in months.

    PPS: Sorry for the crappy garage workbench photo. It's pouring out.

    Not into sloping bikes but it really looks awesome.

    Being a shallow bar user, I'm really eyeing how your setup with Sram levers gives a smooth transition

    Thanks, Kent! There's just a small dip before transitioning to the hoods, which is what I love about this bar shape. I don't really like a totally flat transition like many compact bars give. This shape creates a little nook for the heel of my palm that I really like.

    Dig the DA crankarms with the Praxis (if I'm right) rings. Keeps the black on silver touch.

    What's the makeover?

    Yep, they're Praxis on 7800 cranks. They're also coming off for the makeover. I didn't get as far as I hoped this weekend, but it's getting a new stem, new post, and a Force 22 groupset (except brakes, I'll keep the old Red ones on there). And since I've pretty much decided to never sell this bike, I'll be trimming that last bit of excess steerer. I'll probably swap the Ksyriums for Fulcrum Nites off a different bike.

    Raw. Since the tubes have all sorts of markings on them it hides dirt perfectly. That combined with the seat tube slots being on the sides of the tube makes it a pretty awesome rain bike. I've ridden it in torrential downpours for extended periods of time and when I pull the seatpost to drain it nothing comes out.

    do you have to work much to keep the polished look from oxidation?

    I wouldn't describe it as "polished." I can try to get a closeup shot in a bit so you can see the finish better. As for care, I wipe it down with a damp rag or paper towel after I ride. I do that to all my bikes since it's so humid here and I sweat a lot and live by the ocean. Other than that I've done nothing for the last 3+ years. And though I don't ride it daily now, it was my main bike for a couple years and does not get babied in the slightest.

    Circa 1994, I ran into a crew on the trails in Hartshorne Park in New Jersey. They had these awesome aluminum bikes with Celtic/Punk graphics and they were bouncing over giant fallen tree trunks like nobody's business. Kevin and two others. I was a little punk then so the whole Spooky thing really spoke to me; there were others out there shredding the woods who didn't reflect the whole West Coast hippie vibe. I remember reading the manifestos on the website over a dial-up modem. Thanks AOL! I mail ordered the shirts shown below, which I still have 20 years later. I also saved the catalogs, excerpt below. The 7-inch cover catalog was pretty cool too. I had no money for a frame back then, but visited the factory when it was in New York. Met FTW and the rest of the crew and then hit the road for a 2-week East Coast mountain bike trip. I missed getting a Darkside then and am bummed that I missed the second coming too. Anyway, the ethos and spirit will live on.

    The weather sucks so I'll have to wait for another day to give it a shakedown and get some shots outside. From 10 speed to 11, PRO seatpost and stem, and some CUSHY NFS tape. Seriously, it's like putting Cadillac Sedan DeVille captain's chairs in a hot rod. I'll make some final adjustments and trim the last bit of steerer and then this thing is fully back in the rotation.

    Moved the other day and had to portage the Spooky's. Thought they looked good on the roof, so I snapped a pic.

    Matthew - that's one of my all time favorite bikes. Have always loved the "no-fucks given attitude" from what is clearly a thoroughbred race-bike.

    Ha! This is the first time in its existence it's had a complete matching groupset. Perhaps it's starting to give a few.

    It bums me out that they aren't available anymore. The fun per dollar ratio on these things is through the roof.
