My 1992 Marin Bear Valley fits this theme, not to completely original spec, but that wasn't the intention.

WimVDD's 1991 Scott Windriver

This was my first "real" bike ever (and my first real act of insubordination as well). I always wanted to do some cycling but my parents disagreed on that, so when I was 18 (an officially an adult) I robbed my savings account and bought this bike without their knowledge.

2 years later I sold the bike as I needed funding the new bike (I started competitive mountainbiking and the Scott didn't really meet the requirements). Last year I saw this one on German E-bay and I couldn't resist.

Nice detail: it has nearly all the original parts (even the brake pads are original)

"The flagship of a group of things that are owned or produced by a particular organization is the most important one."

So DX can never be considered "flagship" as there was one more important. :wink:

I thought “Deore” was Shimano’s flagship component group name?
If you are thinking the top of that range is the Flagship, then obviously that’s the XTR. So XT,DX & LX are legit?

I thought the idea of the comp was to show some nice tidy low end bikes….. just saying. :xmas-wink:
