If anyone can confirm the year, i'd be grateful. My first thought was 1994, but the DX components suggest 1993. Cheers :)

it doesn't look the same as mine and that was confirmed as a 93, i think this is the 94. check the citrus thread, that had a NOS bike exactly the same as that one. :D

just checked the citrus thread and the mint one in there is listed as a 94, same exact paint job but it has stx on it, could have sworn that was a later groupset than 94, i know my c16r came with stx alivio mix and that is a 96.

i also checked the catalogues pdf's and unfortunately the only ones i haven't got are 94 and 95 but it isn't in the 93 for sure.

did you get it frame only?

No, whole bike off eBay. The DX parts are original, but he may have used '93 parts to make his '94 build cheaper?

well dx would still have been around in 94 no problem, maybe he got it shop built as opposed to off the peg built from orange then from the shop. or he could have got it frame only himself. i originally got my explosif frame on it's own in 94 and then built as i wanted, people always play with stuff wanting it to be different from the next guys bike.

also he could of liked the frame and paid to upgrade from stx, back then the clockwork sort of became more entry level coz the presitge/p7/aluminium o/ etc were considered higher spec models so would have got the higher spec groupsets like dx/xt/xtr but if he liked that frame he would have upspecced the bike. that i think is the most likely thing to have happened.

looks nice, i like :D 8)

It was an insurance replacement for a stolen Clockwork, so he may have had a 1994 bike built to the same spec as his older, stolen one.

sounds likely, you'd want at least the same spec as your old bike, and if he had a 92 or 93 before they would have likely been dx, make sense.

Done a bit more digging through some old mags (not the smutty ones) and catalogues that are stashed under my bed, it's 1994 :)
