Backtrax was third up from entry level Rufftrax in the 'sport' line up.

Here is the 'sport' line up

Protrax SE
Protrax
Tufftrax
Powertrax
Terratrax
Backtrax
Hardtrax
Rufftrax

Hope this helps :-)

Many thanks.

I will take some better pics when it arrives,..and list the spec...
Probably stick them in the saracen thread though eh ?...keep them all together.

Were all the frames the same for the Sport range ? with just better spec kit on the higher models..?

How come the Forcetrax is missing from the list? I got one around 95 - 96 ish and remember it being around £300 (I think). Had a mix of Alivio and Acera X.

There are 3 levels of frame quality in the 'sport' range.

The first 3 are described as having a - Tange Custom Butted Main Tube.

The next 3 - Tange Custom Butted Main Frame

The Protrax and Protrax SE are said to have - Frameset constructed from Tange Custom Butted Frame Tubes.

No Mention of Forcetrax in my '96 brochure though... maybe it was a special to give some sales channel differentiation... eg Hafords get XXX model, independent bike shops get YYY and mail order ZZZ. Just a guess really.

The spec would put the Forcetrax in between the Bacltrax @ 258.99 rrp and the Terratrax @ 359.99 rrp. So the Forcetrax spec makes sense pricing wise.

Cheers,

Chaser

Could have been 94 mine actually which may explain it not being in your list.
