You just got that frameset then?


Yes, just arrived the other day :)

The plan was to use the fork off this on my Montana Team and use it as a guide for colour and decals for re-finishing the Team.

However, I've now weighed them both and they are the same :? and as the Comp is so nice I'm thinking I put the M900 kit on that and save myself a few quid by not getting the Team re-done :? What do you think?

Cheers

Team = OXII
Comp = AVR

AVR ~= Tange DB
OX II ~= Prestige

The OXII* should at least feel nicer to ride, would have thought it would be a good bit lighter as well

*edited from AVR, doh.

Interesting, I was was aware they have different tube-sets :) I thought the Team would have had the lighter tubing though :?

I've weighed them and they are both about the same. I'll double check tomorrow and post numbers ;)

But you reckon then that the Comp would be nicer to ride than the Team? :?

All wrong, I should have typed OX II not AVR as you would expect.

I don;t know too much about True Temper tubing, there seems to be little about it on the net. Odd given a lot of frame sand parts used it. That and it a USA made tubing you'd have thought it would have some followers.
