Transalp was the official UK (and I assume other areas) the Alpes was a grey import (but I've no idea where from).

They were both produced at the same time.

Well I think I've kind of got my answer, I sort of got it right in my first post :lol:
I'm guessing it was a market/area thing to have a different name for the mtb specific flight.... would the 'transalp' have been an English speaking market seat as 'alpes' is spelt 'alps' in the English speaking world :D although.....I have 2 red label flights, both '93, one 'alpes' and the other 'transalp'. And they both were purchased from ebay.de :shock: :lol:
