Remember seeing these in the shops. Always thought the '93 Exage gear looked really smart 8)

Really, really like this.....I had the non-SE 1993 Bear Valley as a teenager and loved it to bits, so this brings back some fond memories.....

It's on the shopping list for when one pops up in the right size (20.5") ;)

My brother may have one for sale soon, not sure what size or year it is but it might fit the bill. His username is peterpoddy, send him a PM just in case.

A friend of mine had the normal Bear Valley and i loved it. I wanted to get the SE but ended up getting a really good deal on an Eldridge grade instead :)

Great looking bike bud!

Hi, I'm Rob's brother as he mentioned above

The frame I'll have to sell is a 1994 Bear Valley SE, in 17.5in, so not quite what you're after I think. It'll probably be F&F + headset....

Shame - it's gotta be a '93 and larger than that - suitable for a lanky bastid! :)
