The Canadian based Syncros already presented the new Grunge designs for their mountain bike stems, bars and seat posts at Sea Otter in April 2008, and later at Interbike 08 in the US. Grunge is now shipping for 2009.
Syncros parts are split into Freeride (FR), All Mountain (AM) and Cross Country (FL) and for each of these segments the stems, bars and seat posts are available in the new grunge look and feel, in addition to the standard black and white version.
The new design for 2009 is described by Syncros as a range of nobel to agressive Grunge Tribals. In addition to the visual enhancement for your bike, scratches wont look out of place.
Syncros parts are imported by Dirt Works Australia
Syncros was aquired by the Californian based Ritchey Design in 2003.
