Another Crank picture - realised you are wanting to see the pedal spindle after reading the message again!

Cheers, K

Makes me wish I had a road bike... hahahahaha - Nah, gotta say I like rolling with a decent sized metal rotor to stop me :)

Yup those are the big spindle model. Hopefully a little gold mine you have there.

Might I suggest selling on E-bay? You may get better money for it. I buy and sell some old gear (not road stuff) and you get better prices in the US and the exchange rate is good for it to.

Thanks Spokes - that is great news! Not sure how to go about shipping something like this overseas but will have to look into it!

Dura-Ace AX cranks and pedals, alright. And Dura-Ace EX brakes. This bike is in good shape, and as Danose said it could be worth quite a bit of money to the right buyer

Thanks for the info guys - I think the best thing is to post it on trademe with a reserve of $800 and see if we can't keep it here in NZ - overseas shipping is a hassle I am not sure we need to go through. I am thinking if we trademe it with the relevant details, it might go to a good home here in NZ.

I bought the Giant today as well - like the idea of being able to jump on a road bike for a quick spin of the legs (and good trainng bike too) so it will suit me down to the ground. Also, it is nice to have a bike to remember Stephen by too :)

Once again, thanks heaps for all the help, I sent a link to this forum to Stephen's wife and she was most impressed with the information you guys provided.

Cheers, K

Is the 'EA' the date code?

Those pads are "Kool Pads", I think.

nz_kgb, I'd love to see a picture of the dérailleurs - any chance? Cheers, Oli :)

EA looks to be the date code to me. You can buy those pads in the US. They are Cool Stops. They started out as a BMX thing, and a company called Skyway that rebrand them for there Tuff wheels.

Its an intresting old bike for sure.
