Hi people,

You're looking at a Batavus HunterPro

Batavus' top end mountainbike offering for 1992. The driveside chainstay is 'elevated', the other side is conventional. Half-e-stay, like the RM Suzi Q was too for example. Batavus built the fine Professional series roadbikes in house in a speciality frame shop, but as that was all brazing with lugs, I would think this tig'ed frame was built somewhere else. This unlike Gazelle's top end mountainbike offering, the Champion Mondial ATB. That was like all other Champy's built in Dieren.

For ultimate shifting and braking performance the HunterPro came specced with full XTR m900. The bars and post are carbon, or carbon laminated aluminium to be more precise. The tyres with the reflector strip are not original of course.

Does anyone know more 50% e-stays?

Suzi Q is very cool 8)

Suzi is built from aluminium, my Batavus from 4130.

I've never seen a 50% e-stay on one side, thanks for that.
