Not sure if this is the right place to post this but it should be useful to those trying to get the spec 'as built' restorations (usual caveats for these type of guides apply!)

It's a MTB 'buyers guide' from 1990-91 and has a lot of different bikes listed.

I'll try and list them all in another post under this topic but in the meantime please ask and I'll look up and post your bike if its in here.

For now I've posted the cover and a example page:

That looks very interesting.
Post it up some more scans in the Magazine & Catalogue Scans section and I'm sure it'll be much appreciated by everyone. 8)

I had this Mag, BITD, I'd spend ages pawing through it, and in the end I threw it out cos it was just falling to bits!! lol.

Be really good to see a full scan of it. :)

If you email me the pics or better give me a nice zip file to download i'll get it into the gallery. hopefully in PDF format for easy reading as I assume there are a lot of pages.
