They are diamond shaped, instead of oval. The round brake bridge disappeared in 1989, the microfusion 'bridgeless' bottom bracket shell appeared in 1986. The Diamante stays disappeared in 1988. The engravings on the seat stays changed orientation in 87-88. This is most likely a 1987 frame, give or take a few months either way. I have one slightly older, and also an early 1990's frame.

The year makes no difference, they are lovely riding bikes.
