Got this a while back as a NOS frameset, originally planned to build it up as a catalogue build...........budget, time and patience put a stop to that, but it retains an original flavour I think :D

The saddle and bar-ends are for a bit of fun and match the small DBR Italian decals but I think in time will be swapped for black and silver.

Having sat around for the last 16 years I thought it only right it was about time the old girl hit the trails..........now I wasn't expecting a plush ride, with 43mm or travel on the front and 55mm at the rear, and in that respect I wasn't disappointed.......it takes a fair bump to get things moving at average speeds, think slightly dead feeling rigid bike and you're about there :lol: However point it downhill and get the speed up and suddenly it comes alive.....big fun 8)

I must confess at one point i jammed on the anchors and picked it up to tip-toe round a large muddy puddle :oops: .....I'm not ready to trash it just yet :lol:

The first shot was during one of two puncture stops within the first 4 miles :evil:

That is sooo lovely.

Back when I could only afford my sorrento, the DBR bikes were the unobtainable stuff at the top of the catalogue!!!

Yes it is, well spotted!

Mini Update: while tidying the Man Cave I stumbled upon a lonely cable hanger lying idle in a box :( .........as this bike has a linkage arrangement for the rear brake it needs but one hanger :idea: ........looks much nicer than the boggo Shimano effort!

While I was at it I switched the saddle and bar-ends to something a little more subtle 8)

Not quite......I still need a nice m900/m910 mid-cage rear mech to finish it off.........just got to find one :roll:
