Looks like an MT4 or Ogre if it were silver/black - like mine.
A later one, as the cable runs are at the side of the top tube.
Mine's older, note the different routings.


I used to think it was an MT4 but the paint finish was a bit different and also the seat stay/seat tube join, was originaly like this but black...

Didn't have the Dyna-Tech sticker on the seat tube though.



Yes, my old mt4 had seat stays bolted to the seat tube lug, looks nice though whatever it is :-)

It was suggested that I post this up on here.
So I am...

Imageits missing the original forks (quake air) that are in the attic, non-functional. Blew a seal in them, and couldn't get them repaired. Won't hold air anymore. 2003 RC36 stealth at 80mm on there now, spinning on a hope headset (the ones we got on the stock bikes only lasted a few weeks at best, so it had a WTB grease guard from another bike fitted, which lasted about 15 years, eventually)Wheels (Hope/217, then goldtec/217) ended up on a mates bike, that got nicked. So some crossrides from a training bike on there now (IIRC a few team mates had the original crossmax as a standard fit, but with SIDs instead of the Ronds.)
Middleburn spider on there (and rings) the XTR ones lasted for ages (about a season), but at the thick end of 150 quid for a new set and a long wait for parts, i got that set for about 80 instead!
Rest of it is pretty much as it was when i last raced it at the Thetford NPS, 2001.
Probably didn't use the mud tyres tho ;o)

Got a "spare" v-brake only frame as well. Raced that in 98 and 99. Will be hanging it up on the wall once i get round to it :D

I rode for the raleigh factory team from about 98 or 99 to 2001 (when the team folded) this one was the race bike, i had another one for training (that i snapped and that was replaced) I started racing again when i emigrated, so it was pretty much untouched from 01 (when i quit) to about 07, then replaced in 09.
Still riding an old R700 custom and one of Nick Craigs old CX bikes as well (made by Raleigh, badged up as a diamond back, then rebadged as a raleigh for me to race on)

Hi friends of the Nottingham bike company,

Today in Mainhatten snowdrift and my Mtrax Ti 2000, I love this bike, it has done a hard work during the last years. It made me always faithful service :) . In this way, I would like to say thank you very much, to all staff of the Raleigh special product Diffision for your good work :D , that allows all of us to spend time on a wonderful piece of bike history in springtime, 8) summer, autumn, winter.

Nice collection!!
I like all, especially like the Mtrax in Tourer form!
And the black framed one - is that a Torus or aluminium framed one?

How many Raleigh's do you have??

Currently, my Raleigh Special Product Collection includes:

1 Dynatech MT4 with Shimano XTR 900 of 1993
1 Dynatech MT4 with Shimano XT737 assembled in Dec. 1993
1 Dynatech Voyager with a Campagnolo group of 1991
1 Dynatech Voyager with a Shimano XT of 1991 custom build
1 Dynatech OGRE XT of 1992
1 MT 500 of 1993
1 Torus FS with XTR 900 of 1994
1 Torus XT/Magura by 1995
The M Trax TI 2000 from 1995
1 Dynatech C 1000 race of 1994,
1 United States design XTR 900 with Judy SL based on the
1 United States design XTR 900 with V-brakes XT 739 rigid
1 Technium United States peak of 1992
1 Technium United States chill of 1992.

Current Project :)

1 Dynatech Diablo DX of 1992
1 Dynatech XC 60 or 1992

Former Bikes has been stolen :evil:

1 Dynatech MT 600 of 1993 upgraded with Syncros parts, Shimano XT 737 Group set and RS Mag 21
1 Dynatech Diablo SE of 1994 pimped with Syncros parts, Shimano XT 737 Group set and Tioga Revolver
1 M-Trax Ti 1000 from 1995

Broken bikes :(

1 Torus FS polished of 1994 with RS Mag 21, Syncros Parts and XTR 900 group set. Therefore I’ve got the Torus of 1995 from Raleigh UK :D
Image

The provisional conclusion should be the Raleigh special products RSP 600 titanium by markwashington using, but not wanted to send to Germany :cry: .

Best regards from Mainhatten

Jesus!!
That is a very Impressive collection!!
Have you been buying or building up? And any build threads?

And finally - no M-Trax from 1997-1998 or RSP from 1999 - 2001?

You plan to add some more?

And where do you store them all??

A DynaTech was my first MTB from way back when. I went to school with Barrie Clarke who rode for Raleigh for years. My DT is now in the hands of my brother who did the Windsor triathlon on it and passed a few carbon racers on the way round too.
