Sun Rims CR-18 27″ Aluminum Rims, for excellent stopping power in all weather conditions

SunTour SL “High Normal” Front Derailleur – unlike the more standard “low normal” design, where the derailleur is naturally in the lowest chainring and by pulling the cable we move to the higher gear, this derailleur’s natural position is in the higher of the two chainrings, and pulling the cable shifts into the lower gear. The benefit of this, to the rider’s perspective, is that you move both of your shifters in the same direction to shift from high to low gears. This is to make shifting a bit more intuitive.
