Hi, my (from new) Prestige (orange/white) which I bought in early 1992 is Ritchey Logic 'super tubing' Prestige.
I don't think I've seen any others. Perhaps just one batch?
Supplied by Poole MTB Centre :wink:

Seen a few of these. Pretty sure we discussed this before and the conclusion was one batch was made at a time when they couldn't get hold of prestige tubes. :wink:

Poole MTB Centre? Was that the Cannondale dealer with the test track in the back yard?

If anything the Logic Prestige makes for a superior frame. Ritchey used different butting profiles so tubes were thinner in the centre with a bit more on the ends for welding.

In theory it should make for a lighter and stronger frame...probably not that much in it though :)
