    Choice.
    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    Made in Norway? If someone said it was a 3Rensho, I wouldn't be surprised.

    Great looking bike. DBSs are my favorite, as I am Norwegian. I'm curious, is that the original wheel set? What kind of tyres are those? Regular MTB tyres, or some other kind? Looks great, though, with the tan walls.

    Regards, Jupan

    Yes, they where made in Norway from 1892-2000. After 2000 they where outsourced to Chinese manufacturers. Still under the name DBS, but with a different build quality. DBS where outstanding with regards to durability.
