hey dudes. got this frame off Kinfast :D on here. pleased with it. I like dyna techs, not sure why, just do :lol: Its only half built, and im not sure what i want to do with it. options are

1) keep the ridgid forks and stem, fit narrow tires and use it for road and fire roads
2) Fit my rockshox judy,s and some more knobbly tires
what do u guys think?

another thing is the headset which is bigger than my 1.1/8th forks, do i need some kind of shim or something to fit them?

will post a spec sheet tomorrow

nice :D I came very close to getting this frame but alas you beat me to it.....!

I planned to create a light single speed with skinnyish fast rolling but treaded tyres so its fast around town but still usable on light offroad...

cracking buy there Dave 8)

Dynatechs always seemed a bit heavy, BITD. I always thought they looked quality kit, though, and were marketed as being strong frames.

Nice...

Keep the original forks, Judys came along much later than this first generation Dyna.

I am selling a Dynatech MT 3 Titanium if anyone here is interested.

It is virtually NOS too. PM if you want some pics.

Cheers,

Chaser.

nice im just starting a resto on my own dyna-tec , i would have prefered my original bike as i liked the white dyna tec dx frame colours but yellow will do, they were definately good frames and built up into imressively light bikes even by todays standards

Its de components that are heavy, not the frame, I had a 14 inch M-Trax 4500(same as a Dyna-tech) nd bare frame was bang on 4 pounds.
