What makes you think it's a "Team"?

It was advertised as such by a former McRetro member I believe.

Thanks

Does it say Team on the top tube?
Are the seat stays open top and bottom?
Does the Tubing decal state its WCS?
The Team came out in '96. In '95 it was called the "Mountain" and made of Ritchey Logic. However, the '96 brochure states that the '96 Team was exactly the same frame that the Team riders had been using for the last three years. If this is WCS from '95 then it's a very rare beast, unless some Logic was renamed WCS at some point?

Love this.

Colour is way different to how it looked in the ebay ad (for the better).

Yours has the polished gusset a well...

Looking forwards to seeing it built.

1)The tubing decal does say Logic.
2) The seat stays are open.
3) I was told that the Rockshox Judy where colour matched at the point of sale by Chris Dekerf. Even the black Brace has a metallic in it. Its not flat black.

I'm going on the information I have at the time of sale on ebay.
I'm totally happy with it what ever it is.



Rich thanks for you comments, I'm very happy that I won this one.

Thanks

I'm just trying to fill in gaps in my DEkerf knowledge. I'm very interested to know what you have there.
Is the tube decal this one? Image
What's the serial number, if you don't mind me being nosey?

Yup, and I think '93-'96 were the same tubing, identical frames even, until the team sl started using 853 in '97.
Same frames but different names...
