Yes, the one in the barn is 1991 - as well as the different Zolatone shades, the fatter, constant diameter Afterburner seat stays came out in 1991. The OP one has tapered stays. Also the decals were white in 1990, so are not faded from neon.
Nice bike, though I am pretty sure it is a 1991. It has the constant diameter "Afterburner" seat stays which came out in 1991 and it is the "Matt Black with Neon Green Lug" colour that was offered alongside a "Neon Yellow with Neon Pink Splatter" in the US in 1991. Models from 1990 and before...
NZ$200 is about GBP100, so possibly worth it.
I think the Sandy decal is a personal addition - the sellers ID is snady1, which could be Sandy....
It's unusual to get absolutely nothing from google, even if it a local brand etc and quite unusual to have a looptail design.
Apologies, that was something I did not realise and I quoted the link with the 95mm dimension on it :facepalm:
There was previous thread on here about the same issue
It seems that in 1994 only, Alivio (MC11), STX (MC30) & STX-SE (MC31-CH) used 95mm outer BCD...
Shimano 5 arm compact triple BCDs are 94mm outer/middle and 58mm granny.
You have to be careful though, the design was not always the same - e.g. Not all 1994 STX SE rings will fit on 1994 LX cranks.
For STX MC31, the outer ring fixed to the middle ring and the granny ring connected it all to...
Sounds like you have a 1993 Nail Trail?

That had Deore LX components, an Exage ES crankset and Araya TM-18 rims. Although the colour of the forks and bars is more red than purple.
Also, STX-SE groupset was only...
Cool, thanks for this.
Bit of a so-so review; stiff, race-like handling with a few component issues.
Might have to replace these if I find the same problems, although I don't think I will be hammering it as much as they probably did in the test.
Bit of a thread resurrection but I have recently acquired a Crestone Peak VO2 Max Extreme which apparently uses the same frame as your Supergo - see the scanned review in my thread.
Your Supergo looks like a nice bike - how does it ride?
Trawling through the local auction site, I spied this bike, asked a question about the size then forgot about it. It didn't sell so I got a fixed offer, thought what the hell and now I am the proud owner of a 1995 Crestone Peak VO2 Max Extreme:
There does not seem to be much info around...
Nice looking bike - I had a 95 Eldridge Grade and have a 1995 Team Marin too. I replaced all the spokes on the rear EG wheel too, the ones on the Team are not original so I can't comment on whether it was related to the model or year. Those brakes are a bit of a pain to set up but seem to work...
