I've just bought a 1991 Ascent and it is definately True Temper AVR tubing.

1st ride today and despite the snow and ice it seemed to perform very nicely :D

Off out again tomorrow morning but more snow is forecast overnight so it might be another slippery one :lol:

Different from the one you've posted in this thread?

'cos the 91 would be "Solid Neon Orange" in colour, and at least according to the brochure, wasn't AVR, only the Ascent EX (and Apex) were (in 91, at least).

Lovely job on the 1990 Ascent.
I'll look forward to the launch of the neon thread too.

I never got round to sorting a thread out for my 91 Ascent :( I only had it for a ride or two then something else forced me to sell it on.

Yours looks very nice and in excellent condition, looking forward to more pics.
