Hey,

I've just purchased this bike today for 90 GBP :-) I guess it's from '93 but a bit confused as "sports" series was not built with XT set... Does anybody have any info? I could not find it in any catalogue. Tange DB (rear stays 969), full M735 in VGC so I’m very happy :-)

Big boy (size 20,5) would swap the frameset for a 17 or 18.

Cheers,
Norbert

Nice bike, Skolioza is the man on this forum who may help you identify model year and specs.

It's 100% year 1993 - all graphics are correct (especially signatures "sport series" and size graphic on seat tube - this shape was only in 93)
Sometimes sports series had a XT stuff model, fex in 95 Yucatan

I've seen this model few times (it's quite rare!), and it always was on XT M73X - probably it was highest model in sports hierarchy Probably it had Windriver frame (double butted tange MTB cr-mo main tubes and 696 extra strong double butted rear triangle), AT3 bar and SRP 2 Superlite fork

Bigest difference between Windriver was probably XT stuff, I don't have any info about rims, tyres and seatpost/saddle (but in Windriver and Boulder had the same - made by Ritchey)

Not much, and many "probably", but always something more infos

One more thing: it's not a limited dealers version - they had always "pro" in model name and using racing, sometimes performance frames
Maybe it,s some special make up for some country?

Once again :wink:
I knew I saw this bike somewhere on paper.....
It's in POlish catalogue "Bikes of the World 93"
Catalogue use official materials, but shows also shops offer
And here is Yours Tacoma - with full XT M73X as Yours, top model of Sport Series
And look for price - it's in DM in Polish catalogue - maybe Tacoma was sold as special make up for Germany?
