Now that is interesting, looking at the rear dropout of your Traverse, I never noticed that before, not on yours or my old lost Traverse Elite. What I am refering to is the Saracen name stamped into the dropout. I don't remember this on mine, but it is there on my current '93 Tufftrax Elite. But I now understand why it is I have not noticed it before on the '92 frames, the reason is the powder coating is thicker.
This came with a memory of when I was closely inspecting my current Saracen, myself noticing the powder coating being a little bit sparse up behind the seat stays at the top above the brake bridge.
With this, for me personally, the 1992 frames were the best, as it seems with later machines the attention to detail was starting to slip.
