    Please help me identify this 1990's Ti MTB

    Due to a self imposed intervention, I haven't been on this forum for a while. But now I'm back!

    I want to consult the experts here about the origin of this mid to late 90's Ti MTB. I picked it up on Craigslist for a song and have since been using it as an allarounder.

    The curved chain stays and bullet stay ends would seem to scream Litespeed. However, the cable stops are on the top of the TT. All of the period Litespeed catalogs show the stops on the side of the TT. I know that Litespeed made frames for a number of other bike manufacturers.

    The photos show the decals that were on it when I got it. I have attempted to search those decals with no success.

    The tubing is oversized:

    ST -- 32mm
    TT -- 35mm
    DT -- 39

    Serial number: S0DT00149

    I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Looks like a TST to me.

    Agree, it's a TST built frame.

    I was think Kona, which were made by TST, but the cable stops are different. Those look squarer but the Konas were more rounded.

    Not sure who else they made for, Mongoose, Wheeler, Diamond Back?
