Nice looking bit of gear that. If I ever get around to buying a modern bike, something like that is where I'd be going...

Question: Prestige now- is it the same as it was when it was commonplace ten years ago, or has it evolved and just kept the same name?

Looks pretty much the same Geoff

They don't seem to do Concept any longer, but I imagine the basic Prestige tubeset is a fairly cheap sturdy option for a frame builder to use still. Obviously the Duster is a steel bike in the modern idiom with far fatter tubes than our 94/5 Kilaueas. BITD the Prestige top tube was a 28.6 and the down tube was a 31.8, now they go up to 38.1 and it looks from the photo as though the Duster may have a 34.9 tt and a 38.1 dt, albeit maybe at 8-5-8, whereas BITD it was 9-6-9.
