Hiya. I keep finding this page on my research travels! You say the 1992 is the best and fave, is this just the orange fade one, not the black too? Different? And then how does 92 compare to 93? I'm picking up a 93 frameset like yours but needs TLC, off a mate soon. So looking at options.
How do these compare to Prestige? I had an early one BITD loved it, now I have a 92/3 must check serial (it's purple and gunmetal fade) and tempted with another does the year matter on prestige?
Cheers!!!
:)

Hi, yes purple and gunmetal grey Prestige will be a 1993, owned a couple in the past, ride really well, nimble and smooth, slightly lighter than a clockwork, but the tubing is more delicate, more prone to dings. Have a Mbi mag review of the prestige 93, must send you some pics. The black clockwork i have pictured is a November 92.

That would be great, yes please.
It's funny my Prestige like many other builds started as something I'd ride a lot and not be to precious about. It's now my blingiest build to date! So my next will be down to Earth like I did BITD, simpler life with one proper MTB (or was it!?). I'm not overly inspired about the 93 Clocky yet...
(Edit: I've just read the catalogue again, could be a machine!)

So does the orange fade 92 model really ride nociably different to the 93 or even the late 92 black one?! What did they change. What about Prestige did they have a best year?
And why do I never see one for sale bigger than 19"?! Haha

Cheers
