Just spied this on the 'bay > http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/raleigh-dyna-tech ... 0367451736



Quite interesting and different to other dyna tech frames. Anyone fill in the details?

At the Long Eaton cycle jumble a bloke was trying to sell me one for £200 NOS. He told me they were issued to Raleigh team riders in 1996.. I don't know how much truth is in that? But they did use something similar in the 1997 tour as I remember but with purple lugs..

I what way different? In construction it looks exactly like the one I had :? MY91 it was. To view it, the catalogue is in Gallery 2.

Yeah, it was an option around 1991. I bought the Titanium and Reynolds 853 one, but it was constructed exactly the same.
They crop up every now and then. In fact that's the third one I've seen in the last 6 months.

The Pro was badged as having 2080 tubing which equalled Reynolds 753.

thanks for the info. As clearly pointed out it's a standard 1990 frame, shows what I know :lol:

Anyhow have tracked down the 1990 catalogue, now in the archive > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... emId=56028

Great pic of a dyna-tech in team livery on page 2 /3

Okay, new upload. Good read. Thanks :)

Looks like the MY90 and MY91 Pro are identical.

Yes, that Team paint one with Record is great stuff. If I understand the catalogue correctly the paint was available on several models on request.

I'd forgotten all about that catalogue!
I now remember the many nights gazing at the Record groupset, wishing I wasn't some poor student.
Nice find. Thanks.

I bought the 700 new at the time. Alas it was too small and the shop wouldn't take it back so it ended up being swapped for some hi-fi with a friend. It's still going strong and lives in Sydney now after my friend emigrated.
