Are you guys looking at the same bike as the rest of us? The head lug is totally different to both of those two as is just about every other feature.

As Drystonepaul said -early 1990s Dynatech

It's a 90-91 Dyna Tech for sure, they were the only ones with the wedge shape head tube lugs. Possibly an Encounter. The Sentinel didn't have a wishbone rear stay IIRC and the others didn't have mudguard bosses.

Drystonepaul has it correct. It's a Dyna-Tech.


Debate over. It's an early Dyna-Tech, just a Drystonepaul had said.

Now, get it built up and start enjoying it in the way it was intended. :lol:

Can you do a magnetic test on the tubes and let us know which bits are -
A. Magnetic - these will be steel.
B. non magnetic - these will be either aluminium or titanium.

This will help diagnose the frame type as dyna techs were made of a mix of metal types. It's not a Diablo as the frame is different but it maybe another variant of dyna tech.

The head tube is a casting in alloy. The main tubes are Reynolds steel. No Titanium was used at this time.
