Have acquired this frame, as they was no decals present and the frame was orange and under that coat green and under that black it looked like an 96/97 avalanche,backwoods,at a glance,on stripping the layers back it revealed 7005 stamped on both drop outs and the serial on the bb, can only make out SA****3021.
on trawling the site for an id i found the following.
the down tube gusset only came in in 95/96 so age is from then onwards.?
the rear cable guide under seat post disapears in 98 catalogue.?
several frames are 7005 alloy and have round caps.
and the backwoods and avalanche look very simalar to the untrained eye.but i did notice the rear dropouts looked different,
some more on the frame
shell width 73mm
seat tube 27.2mm there is a seat cut
its canti
and 7005
removeable hanger

any help appreciated as i want to start of with the write decals.thanks darren

I like the look of that fully built avalanche :D

I have one in the garage I need some inspiration for and I recon that could be the go
