Al.U.Max

1994 Parkpre “Al.U.Max” (Brainz Bike)

I acquired this AlUMax as a complete bike from Ebay. All original parts except for the wheelset. It came with full STX drivetrain, brakes w/ Gripshift and a Tange Strut fork. I believe this year and model Parkpre came with Pulstar hubs. This Alumax I acquired came with a beautiful set of STX Special Edition hubs instead. I’ve switched out several of the parts for more bling and prestige naturally. Not going over board since this bike is my main trail runner. I switched out to a XT Rear dérailleur tuned, XTR Shifter Pods, Anodized Levers, Anodized Stem, XTR Seatpost, 3DV Ringle Hub and some other goodies. I retained the original STX cranks so I could wear on them and not worry about it. I wasn’t sure about the smaller 17″ frame but I almost think I like it better than my 19″ Parkpre’s. This bike climbs hills like a crazed billy goat too. I have a set of repro decals made up for it but I kind of like the top tube being blank on this bike and the rest of the decals are in good shape so I’m saving the new decal set.
