Tubes made in the US does not mean the frame was :)


According to gm1230126 the 92 Avalanche was made by Toyo in Japan. If anybody would know about this he would. Still not a Taiwanese bike.
This really needs to be sorted out as their is a very good chance this will be the BOTM winner IMO .



My 91 Avalanche's serial number starts with a T. Standard issue with Toyo's frames.

Narrowed it down to four:
Mossy's 1992 GT Avalanche (If made in Taiwan, which is questionable)

manbeer's Barracuda A2E

klasse's 1991 Bridgestone MB-0 Zip (not the first bike I think of when thinking "Made in Taiwan" ?!?!)

kaiser's KHS Montana XT


I don't think Taiwan, when thinking Bridgestone. The GT Avalanche would get my vote if it was made in Taiwan, as I really like that pain scheme and the build.

So, that narrows it down to Kaiser's and manbeer's, and I always go steel, when it comes down to it, so Kaiser's KHS Montana XT it is, for me 8)
(despite its really long front brake cable/housing :P :wink: )
