200gs group,was that later than 91?
I know it could had parts replaced over a number of years.
Would it have had a rear u brake at all?

I think it is 1989 , my uncle had a green talera without the triple triangle , u brake on the chainstay, then my first bike was a 1991 gt talera in granite grey , with triple triangle and a u brake on the seat stays .

Some of the cheapest models like the outpost didn't have the triple triangle even though it was already in use.

Wow ! I never knew that ! The 1991 brochure showed all the bikes with triple triangle , there must have been a bit of time for a change over .
