I'd guess near '92 as it's the sloping top tube version.

Has the rear canti hanger been removed or is there no sign of there ever having been one there?

This is my 1992.

That's a 1995 frame chap :wink:

Decals were the giveaway for me more that anything else. Seatpost size is correct for frame too - my '92 Comp had something like 26.2 if I recall...
