Yesterday I discover it on a garage sale. After the business done, a partial cleaning and remove the winter spikes tires (!), here my corratec bow 202. Colorful like a rainbow. A new ano blue seatpost will come soon, and maybe some old green michelin wilgripper tires.

thanks guys for the precisions

I guess the fork is a 97 model although it's engraved 96 on the arch. (Maybe the fork was added later on the bike?)

Here a picture of the disc mount on the frame, it's not the same like the other bow frames I saw, who the brake calliper is "inside". This model also don't have the manual adjustment of the pads…

not really, Corratec was one of the forerunners in terms of disc brakes - def. they use disc's on their 96 Team Bow range. 95 is just a guess, as I dont have the copy of the 95 brochure, but Team riders used disc's in 95, as seen on the cover of the 96 brochure.

@ guivd

brochures you can find here:

Bombers are def. not OE spec. see my brochures in 96 - 98 the Team Bows had Rock Shox forks.
