In my quest to build up a Suntour Sprint 9000 groupset, I noted a particular oddity in the fact that many components from the Sprint 9000 group are curiously absent from mention or photographs online. Even eBay seems to be religated to Sprint 9000 rear derailers and partial groupsets.
For a while, I was led to believe that the Sprint 9000 groupset was limited to a derailer/freewheel/shifter groupset, until I perceived an NOS Sprint 9000 crankarm at a Local Overpiced Bike Shop. I then realized that there had to be a complete Suntour 9000 groupset - abiet, a highly evasive groupset...
Various internet searches to locate any other existence of this crankset were not succesful until I found this page:
The road group page, while not full color photographs, confirmed that a complete Sprint 9000 grouppo existed, not to mention full grouppos for GPX and a group I had never heard of - Ole.
Am I simply missing something here, or are these groupsets and their components that poorly known? I would have thought that the reasonably well-known Sprint 9000 group would have had more circulation of cranksets and brakesets then I've seen so far.
