Any background info on the above. I bought the frames because I wanted steel framed MTB and then discover that they are quite well known bikes

I have a Diabolo and a few other people here too. Have a look here about the maker: http://www.daveyatescycles.co.uk/

very well known and respected. I have a review of the diabolo if you want a copy by email. PM me.

I have a Diablo too!

Great frames but mine is waiting to be built up, just gotta decide if it's gonna be singlespeed or multi-geared :D

A Dave Yates is a different league altogether from your GT Bravado.....

Hi, I have a 99 Bravado, as other have said it’s not in the same league as a Diablo, but it is a nice ride. Heavy duty enough to know you aren’t going to break it. The only problem I have had with it was the seat pin size, this was 29.4ish not your standard size, and was lucky to get a GT seat pin of Ebay which fitted perfectly, also it does not have a rear disc mount.
