- odd hole in the BB area


Not odd. In the catalogue it actually lists the dry valve as a feature on the Altitude for 93. Also claret73 has it on his 94 Blizzard …

I always fancied some red turbines to go with the colour scheme, be nice to see what it looks like.

Could you check inside the bottom bracket and the headtube for a serial number ?

fairly confident that this is indeed a Blizzard, and most likely a 94. looking at claret73 thread, as well as some photos from another Blizzard posted for sale locally, the similarities are great. Same RM stamped drop-outs, same rack mount braze-ons. The headset and fork (which I haven't pictured) that was included with my frame looks to be the same as the one for sale as well.

I haven't seen this thread before, but I think this is definitely a 94 or 95 Blizzard and not an Altitude. The Altitude was a different shape. I don't know how to tell a 94 Blizzard from a 95.

3M™ Marine Rubbing Compound
Suggested for heavy, aggressive compounding of oxidized gelcoat and marine paint. Clings to paint and gelcoated surfaces - remains wet on the job with little or no mess. Buffs to high gloss with minimum of swirl marks. Can be used by hand or machine.

Full Description »
Maintains high rate of cut with constant pressure.


Sorry to half hijack the frame debate...would this rubbing compound suffice for cutting down an over-stuffed powder coated bar (trouble getting the grips on/too wide a gap between stem and stem cap).

Ah FC, can always count on you to breath new life back to an old RM thread! ;)

Here's a recent Thunderbolt pic posting on MTBR. Although only slightly different, I like this schema so much more! That and the fact it's a Thunderbolt in my size!
