Think 1989s had the old train station headbadge and was the first year with the 3.0 frame.

The rear drop outs, the cable guides and the U brake it could be an 88 with newer parts ? The headbadge points to 1990

Sure 24pouces will be along in a bit and clear it up

:D

ooh...wicked bike btw.....glad you are keeping it. I love my 89 dale.

The frame is before 1989 : the diagonal ube is not 2" as 3.0 frames, and only the 1990 Beast of the East frame used a U brake.
For knowing exactly the year : look at the serial number under the stays :wink:

It's after 1992 decals and they got nothing to do on such a frame. If you want the good decals, perhaps, I got the solution :D

What a blast from the past... a friend of mine had one with a very simular set up (same colour and Pace forks),
I always thought it was a cool rig and since he was a lanky bugger it must have been a 21' frame (maybe larger) with the worlds longest headtub/fork steerer like yours.
I'm just six foot tall but it felt like I was a 10yr old riding my dads bike when I took it for a spin :D

Sadly it all ended in tears when he got knocked off on a round about and the car crushed part of the frame :twisted:
I thought all this subsiquent Dales looked poop. :oops:

Nice to see one again... thanks for sharing

I think it falls within the boundaries of the RB definition of a 'keeper'......i.e you managed to actually ride it before the sale photos had finished uploading to photobucket. :D :D
