Looks like the Prairie Breaker might have a chance to bring the BOTM title Down Under (for the first time too?).
Thanks very much for the kind remark but there are plenty of far more 'generally desireable' bikes posted up every Month. Much as I love the bike, I'd be pretty shoecked if it pulled out a BoTM win!
My first MTB was a PB. Used it all the time during my time at Hallam Uni; even sprayed it in my Uni halls bedroom! Still have it, albeit not built at the mo'. It is a great frame with geometry ahead of its time. After many bikes, it's still probably the one I will always keep no matter what.. Not sure what year it is, but it came with the Shimano cantis that were really wide (and black), maybe an '91?
My guess is that your PB was a '90 (i.e. before Shimano introduced their 'aero canti's in '91 but after Shogun moved away from rear u-brakes in '89).
