First post, so be nice, but I wanted to share this...
Back when my legs creaked less and I entered a race here or there for fun (!) I bought a Raleigh M-trax Ti 4000.
I decided to sell it after a year to buy a gleaming new Kona Explosif 853 (which I still regret selling to this day!) but thankfully it was my dad who bought the M-Trax and after a few choice upgrades at the time and changes in a few components to suit his riding, he still is riding it to this day.

... and it still goes faster downhill and stops better than my '03 Kona Kula with Hope discs, even though it's got a canti's on the rear and a cable puller to allow a V on the front!

I think it's around a '95 looking at the catalogues on this site (many thanks for who ever has uploaded all those!)
