Dmr also put an excess of drop out material on those old bikes. You can dremel out the drop out without too much worry. I did it to my 24" transition no problem.

Looks like it could be a DMR Drone. The only thing that’s throwing me off slightly is the disc brake mount.

Just picked myself up a cheap steel dirt jump bike as we have a new pump track opening very close to my house and my enduro bike would be overkill but I've no idea what the frame is as its been resprayed at some point in its life.

does anyone recognise the shape at all ? It doesn't really matter but it would be nice to know as the previous owner didn't have a clue either .

I think it's pretty old due to the cantilever rear brake (has disc mount too) . Any helps appreciated . I thought with all the knowledge here someone might be able to shed some light on it



99% sure It is not a DMR, they have a brace from the headtube to the downtube on the underside, looking at it, is it running an old style US bottom bracket? If so my money is on something like an older Identiti perhaps?

unfortunately ive no idea what bottom bracket its running , i did email DMR and they are pretty sure its a drone 26 but wont commit 100% to it without checking the serial number.

i thought the same about the gusset , ive been looking at a lot of images of various drones but they all seemed to have this gusset on the underside near the head-tube. i have actually just found one image of a drone 24 without the gusset, so its possible there were a limited amount at some point that didn't have it, everything else seems to match up as a drone .

im going to send the serial number to DMR later after work . heres a picture with the original bars and stem fitted they definitely look like DMR. whatever it is it was great fun on the pump track yesterday

I'm 99% sure it's a DMR.

I can't work out what model or year though. Would probably be a drone from 2005-9 somewhere or a transition from before that.

What's throwing me off is that almost every bike DMR makes has a gusset under the head tube and yours doesn't seem to.

Beauty! i loved my Cove frame , unfortunately i bought mine used and it came with a smallish dent in the downtube which eventually turned into a massive crack Frown

I was gonna say Norco 250 from way back. Looks extremely similar to my 2005 250. Even having brake plus rim mounts.

Not sure if anyone is interested...but I just got confirmation from Airborne that the 19' Skyhawk DJ will be blacked out. They would not, at this time, confirm or deny some of the upgrades or slight price point increase that I've heard. Looks like a pretty nice ride for the price and the factory is only an hour away from me, so I can try before I buy!
