Team Marin Tange Ultimate Superlight MTB Mountain Bike Frame, Hard tail
Circa Early 1990's up to 94 ?
Measures 19 inches BB center to top on the seat tube, effective size of 21 inch frame with Sloping top tube 23" inch actual top tube length on centres. 23 1/2" at 21" Double butted seat stays. Est. 16 7/8" Chain stays. (on centres) 1917g. 4lb, 3.6oz with no hardware.
Fits: 26 inch wheels Cantilever brakes only, (lightest easiest to find are Dia Comp with same levers) 1 1/8 inch headset. 27mm seat post, (or looks like) 68mm wide Bottom bracket, x 34mm ? Threaded (hand measured, should be a standard cartridge size)... Includes the plastic derailleur cable slider on the Bottom bracket.
The steel tubing on this I believe was specifically made for MTB frames, built to take the rigors of off road riding and shouldn't be compared to lighter road bike tubing frames, though this still pretty close to some....
Add any 1lb or less fork and any quality headset, The lightest shifter group would be 21 speed friction / index. (XT) Dia comp Brakes and levers, (if not some other odd lighter) Road bike hubs (600, Ultrgra) on narrow wheels, good spokes, Any good crank and derailleur, (xt) Similarly light tube stem and bars of which are numerous light weight to choose from, lightweight tires and tubes relative to size, should make a sub 20-21lb bike.. (I had an early 90's Brodie with the same set up and don't think was a lighter steel... I regret selling)
Still nice condition, Acquired from the original owner who Special ordered, bought it new as bare frame, completed it and didn't ride it much until something else newer improved supposedly came up..
Minor paint chips scratches throughout .... Chain slap wear through on the clear plastic stay protector, Right side Afterburner seat stay decal worn, some other light wear on the various print and decals.. Other possible accumulated residues, road grime, dust from storage No Dents or structural flaws…
