Used to have a the pink & blue Montana Team myself back in about 93ish, full M900 XTR with Manitou 3's & a diskdrive. It was a stunning bike to ride, so stable, yet very 'flickable'. Probably the best bike I've ever had, certainly the most capable bike I've had. I really miss it, sold it to a mate with Ringle stem, seatpin, skewers, bottle cage & Cooks Bros cranks for £200. I regret selling it everyday. Sadly I don't have any pictures of the bike on it's own, for some reason I never took any. I do have this picture of me on Woodbury Common, trying to get something that resembles 'air':

were they the same frame as the pro but better spec do you recall?

Yeah, I think the frame was identical (IIRC), but with the XTR groupset. I wasn't fussed about the pink BITD, but it has turned out (to me, at least) to be one of my favourite schemes. Would love to get another Montana Team, & would certainly like to see some decent pics of one.

nice bikes :)

here's mine i just recently picked this up locally. the guy told me the bike was about 4 years old, what a joke :lol:. based on the serial number stamped on the frame it was manufactured in November of 1987. its tuned up now, rides and shifts smoothly, but i need some new cables in the near future. Parts are supposedly all original, except tires/tubes lol, seems consistent with parts available for the era.
