Not totally sure what the difference is - the brochure just talks about the Axis Team tubing being heat treated.

My 91 Axis (not Team) has the same tubing and decal that yours does, 'cept mine is in Black with the sort of splattery effect seen on the Team, above.

I did read, somewhere, that True Temper OX Ultra II evolved to / is what became known as TT-Lite a few years later.

Nice Harry, identical to mine, be interested to know what size post you get to fit, I had a few probs with mine but settled on a 26.0.

Are you going to be starting a build thread for this?

Yes not too sure on the post yet I'll let you know

A build thread will begin soon, just need to get a few better pics in the light and when it's not raining.

Found this photo of a 1990 DB Ascent EX with a dark green splatter paint job.
I'm not sure, but I think the EX may have been a USA only version.

Do you mean for 1990, or as a generalism?

I've got a 91 UK brochure with an Ascent EX in, same for 95.

Seems some of the paint jobs were country / region specific, though.

Cable routing says 94 onwards.

Decals look newer, though. I'd say 97-ish?
