Thanks for those beauties!
I'm curious - is there a link to the Roberts please?

I also discovered the 1991 Barrie Clark's Raleigh Dynatech with a bonded 2080 Tubeset (753?)

The build threads are below in the signature... 8)

Certainly the Raleigh team did use Reynolds 753 for sure.

Thanks!! Man, don't mean to ass kiss but youre pretty inspirational - those threads are worth reading for anyone with an interest!

As Hamster mentioned the Tony Oliver frames...here are a couple of pictures from his book 'Touring Bikes.
They were used as off-road gravel tourers for an expedition to the north cape Finland.

The Dave Lloyd has gone to pastures new, I still have Zinn and Roberts with 753 with the Roberts just tipping the balance as a rider more frequented, with the Zinn being the race bike, if only we still had cross country races like in 1990.

to be honest, they are so different to ride, despite the frame material being the same, it would be unfair to even try and draw comparison. The only thing they share, is ass up head down.

Just like the good old days... 8)

Thanks to mheywoo1 for these scans of MBI 1993 review of the Decade.
It’s nice to see mentioned the Reynolds 753 component of this frame.
