531 lugged lightweight range like the team in my sig or the Chinook I linked were top of the range bikes in 1989.

The montage must share the same fork as the lower bikes then. Headset and headtube will be standard though.

If its the light blue Montage with the flouro decals, its 22.2mm. Mine had Suntour Xpress shifters, black Alesia rims and Suntour parts.

Whereas this was 21.1mm, despite looking remarkably similar...

Nice, as i thought that's an 89 model. The 88 had a ubrake. The one lgf posted about was a 1990, the 1991 I had I am sure had an oversize Tioga avenger headset.

This one has a Tange headset (whatever that means). Had a look at the Chinook but think frame it's too big for me.
Also, bet the ovaltech chainring helped overcoming those killer hills in Devon.
Forgot to mention this one has cantis.

Should be a range unique x which is OEM fit and won't come undone.

Shame that Chinook is too big, the montage is quite a rare size, most were bought in a you'll grow into it size.

Thanks Carl. Have also been looking at this beauty but never ridden titanium and not sure how good it would be for bikepacking trips. Have to say it's beautiful though:
