Just picked this up yesterday. Haven't even cleaned it at all. I know nothing about DBR, just figured it was a good deal for $85 (about 50GBP I guess?) I have no clue what model or year it is- any help? Shimano XT cranks, V-brakes (but a canti hanger on the frame), front derailleur. XTR levers. SRAM Plasma shifters and Neos rear derailleur. Judy SL fork. Here're some pics.

The M739 kit is from 1997, except the brakes were available for 96. The Judy SL is a 97, but the canti bridge dates the frame more to 96/earlier.

Does the seat tube sticker say Easton Program?

$85 is a bargain for just the parts alone if nothing else!

Cool, thanks for clearing up the model jango! I guess the bike was built up in '97. The tubing sticker says "DBR Designed 7005 Aluminum Double-Butted Oversize Tubing."
How should I go about polishing the frame?

Bargain!

lots of threads on here about polishing - just do a search and something will come up... 1200 grit wet and dry, Autosol, polishing wheels on drills... lots of options and no way of avoiding lots of hard work.

I used autosol on mine as it was a bit of a state when I got it, I think there are kinder less aggressive polishes that others can recommend if you do a search.
