Imagenot a dynatech, but near enough. only picture I have of it at the moment. Excuse the added cat. He was watching me train.
(FWIW, it's effectively a 20.5" frame and I'm 5 9. And it's made to measure)

Been all over with that, it's now on its 5th groupset.
Chorus, DA, DA, Ultegra, 105.......... probably done the thick end of 100000 miles on it. 6 or 7 full race seasons, then another 7 or 8 years as my favourite bike. (Prefer it over my "best" bike, an RS6 Pro, which I've recently retired, as I never ride it!)

Stunning bike, there was one on eBay recently which had been bought by RB member And is being Discussed on eBay page.

How do these compare to these modern racer road bikes?

No idea. My most modern road bike is 12 years old. (Though the couple of dozen i've tried in recent years really haven't compared, so the replacement for this will also be made to measure, and steel)

Just rescued this from the TIP. Some Bell Shine was throwing it out! (it didn`t come with the wheels)

Thinking of a cheeky summer Dyna Tech re build part 2 ;-)

How much do you need to know to spot a bike frame in good condition? :? Some people... :roll:

Great rescue work! :D

Now need to finish my RSP Ti, and my new project, the frame I have always wanted, a 1998 M-Trax 350 Elite with Reynolds Optima frame...

Here she is as she is now..

She's just a frame with the pictured stem and bars now, with Mavic X517 Sup/ XT 739, Raceface Turbine LP with Specialites TA crankset so far.....

Your MT4 looks as sweet as.
What's the build for the Optima ?

Keep up the good work.
