Hi! I'm the first owner of this frame (actually second, my brother was the first). I managed to trace you thanks to the Belgian guy (Bert) you bought the frame from. Ofcourse my first question is: if one day you sell it, PLEASE CONTACT ME! I sold it years ago and still regret.
But it's nice to see the bike's being offroad again. It's a bike with a bit of a -ahum- "respectable" offroad history so offroad is where it should be.
My brother was back in the mid-nineties sponsored by the European importer of Dean (based in Belgium) and for them (and on this frame) he won (in Junior category) about 15 national races, won the Belgian National Cup, ended 2 times 2nd in Paris-Roubaix VTT,... competed in the 1995 World Championships in Kirchzarten and many more international races back then. When he changed teams, the bike became mine and, although I didn't have the qualities my brother had, won some races on it too.
After I stopped competion the bike became my "allround" bike, did some travels on it and I guess this is one of the last pictures I took from it (taken april 2006 when I climbed Pico Mulhacen in Andalucia):
Enjoy the bike and yes, if one day you are about to sell...
