Hi all

Ok was a registered user before but cannot for the life of remember my login details, so i have started again as a new user.

So today i collected a dream bike from my childhood, the bike is a 1993 Raleigh Dyna-Tech ORGE.
The bike was owned from new by the owner of Tracey Maids in Long Eaton Mr David West, the bike for the most part has lived in Spain.

17" 2125 dyna-tech frame running deore dx with xt thumbshifters, she has had a bit of a clean today and is now running a xt short cage rear mech, i will be changing the front mech over to xt aswell in the future. The bar ends have been removed for a cleaner look, just need to get a BB sorted and headset service and new handle bar grips.
Be kind on the comments and also have a suede Vetta saddle to be added.
Pics attached.

Already taken them off, really love the colour shines in the sunlight.
Rides sweet just need to sort a new BB and replace the headset not sure of size.
Will be sorting a full strip down over the next few weeks when I've got the bits I need.

Nice find and looks pretty original, I've got one of these that I've owned from new. One thing though, that is a 92 year ogre not 93.

I'd be interested to see some close up shots of the decals as I had some replacements made but wasn't sure on the colours (I removed the originals years ago when they got damaged).

Bike looks good, always liked the Raleigh Dyna-tech bikes, the decals on the three main tubes are pretty "unique", very 1990's.
Nice to know a bit about the history of the bike too.

Lovely bike! I remember drooling over these and the blonde in Tracey Maids as a teenager.

If memory serves me well; It's named after Baintha Brakk a mountain in the Karakorams (a.k.a "The Ogre"), first climbed by Chris Bonington in 1977 who was involved in marketing this bike in 92. I'm sure there was a marketing pic of him with either this bike or the Ogre XT but I can't find it online.
