My mtb was built up to a frame like this. I have the original frame sticker somewhere in the garage. It says that it was made from Ritchey Logic Super tubes (if I remember well). It is chromoly steel, but from it's colour everybody thinks that it is made from titanium. Some years ago mine was powder coated with uncoloured lackquer, but it has some rust spot on. Unfortunatelly, I can't remove the lacquer with any solvent, and to polish it will lasts some night... :-(

Some stainless is magnetic, some isn't.

might just be me, but is the owner really gunna appreciate the world knowing how much his inadequately locked bike is worth?

Not sure 'niche website advertises that somewhere in the vicinity of maidenhead there exists what might be a moderately valuable 20yr old MTB that isn't locked locked up brilliantly' is going to blip the master criminal radar...
