Ah that seems to work OK

If anybody can tell me what shade of grey that is I'd be quite interested...We always used to refer to it as "Bontrager Battleship Grey"


Love to snow riding aspect too...all in all a veery influential MBUK feature 8)

Yep looks like a 90/91 OR like mine going by the two piece seatstays and the front mech roller.... Has had later decals fitted though. Lovely frame, wish it was a large!

EDIT: I'm not sure how the brake bosses are staying there without the bolts in though.....


its a 93+ race frame going by the details

Glad to be able to add to the resource here.

Infact checking out that article might have gotten me thinking about a restoration project for my Ti Lite which has been out of action for a long time with a cracked weld on the driveside :roll:

Not quite as swanky as others on here but this is my '96 Privateer:

I'm running it as is for the winter but it needs a repaint. Trying to decide on colour at the mo, not sure whether to 'rasta' it or keep origional. It's my most modern bike and ridden loads so the kit will stay as is; means my Klein can revert to period kit.

unfortunately not joking about the cracked weld on my TiLite :cry: / :shock: ....

the funny part of the situation was not long before it occurred I had at long last met Keith Bontrager at a race and gotten him to autograph the fabled frameset :D ...sigh.

Anyway's this thread is getting my intersts in seeking a repair for it.
