neither… was thinking proper XTR m900 as spec'd in the catalogue.

but most of the components i currently have is a little to nice to put on this well used frameset. :?

Like it!

Have a soft spot for these, may get one, one day. What is the difference between the three year's models?

91 and 92 seem to be very similar. only difference may be the tubing (91 - Ritchey, 92 - Tange) though 91 came with rigid Syncros Powerlite forks, and 92 spec'd with the RockShox, so not sure if geometry was altered at all or not.

93 is a different beast with fastback stays, no on frame seat binder but removable seat collar, etc.

Thank you,

I have some Judy XCs looking for a home, when I can find some medium springs for them. 1 1/8" steerer?

Mike, you've lost me. Are you asking if your Judy XCs would fit an Altitude frame? If so yes, all are 1-1/8" headtubes.

Yes,

Sorry about that. I realise how confusing that sounded now :facepalm:

There's a '95 frame for sale, but well out of my price range!

Well done, great catch! I think overall, one of the most desirable Rockys, apart from the real exotic stuff. Would be nice to compare geometry to the '91 version, I wonder if it was adjusted to Mag20 suspension.
