Gallery: Tihamér’s RANS Stratus XP

In 2005 I ordered a XP frameset directly from RANS, which I had build up here in Belgium. So far, I have ridden it over 7.000 miles and recently updated the drivetrain and brakes. Specs are :

  • SRAM DUAL DRIVE II 27-speed drivetrain
  • SHIMANO LX hydraulic disc brakes/levers
  • MAVIC X717 DISCS rims with SCHWALBE MARATHON SUPREME tires (26 x 2.00)
  • INOLED 20+ front light
  • SHIMANO DH-3D71 sports dynamo hub with disc brake
  • 155mm SHIMANO cranks from Mark Stonich

    Where did you get the double kick-stand?

  • Tihamér says:

    The double kick-stand is called the DOUBLE FLEX from the German brand HUMPERT. I don’t know if that brand is available in the US.

    is there a way to contact you by e-mail? I would like to try the RANS Stratus XP and the Gold Rush by Easy Racers, but I don’t know if there are test rides available in Europe (I live in Italy).

    How do you like the shorter crank arms? I have the same bike with the stock cranks, and I am considering the same; however, I still want the triple chain rings, but a little smaller.
