That looks killer. S&M pads would look better though. Great build.

I've got a couple sets of the new ones, but can't bring myself to put the "American Bicycle Co" shield on a bike with the "Bicycles Made In U.S.A." shield on the head tube.

Re: 1995 S&M Holmes

I like the bomber pads, shield pads/seats are getting over done.  It's nice to see someone do something a little different.  I had chrome bomber pads w/blue flames back in the day, so every time I see a set of chrome ones I fall in love! :lol: Great job on the build.  Love those stems.

Traded another guy for them. They were on a Holmes he scored on our local Craigslist.

Re: 1995 S&M Holmes

Re: 1995 S&M Holmes

It's a 16t. I don't believe I have a half link on it, but I'll have to double check tonight.

Re: 1995 S&M Holmes

Thanks for checking bro.  Reason I was asking is I'm trying to slam my Holmes as much as possible (like yours) but I'm having clearance issues w/the AD990 arms.  I'm running GT 2.1s and I think that's my problem, too wide.  :|
