    Dirt Research MTB info

    Anyone have any info on the now defunct Dirt Research company. I've seen some of their frames and they look great. The search function pulled up 5 posts with little info. Google gave similar results.

    Tim,

    As I was bored this morning, I dug a bit deeper to see what I could find. It appears that Dirt Research frames were produced by Tom Teesdale (who, among other things, produced Gary Fisher Mt. Tams from 82-89, Marin Team Issue frames 89 & 90, the original prototypes for Barracuda and did work for VooDoo, Jamis and Dean.

    If you're that enamored with Tom's handiwork, he's still making frames under his own label: T.E.T. Cycles.

    You can read more about him here:

    Hope this helps.

    I saw that this morning when I tried to Google it. Thanks

    It appears that there is no website or forum dedicated to the old Marque. A guy in New England bought a warehouse full of the frames and is selling them off on ebay. Just wanted to know what the story was on them.
