Input on this bike

Taking off from my last thread asking for help in selecting newith tires for my newly acquired MTB some people said posting pics would be helpful in determining the year of this Giant ATX 760. The hubs, crank, and both derailleursides are Deore lx. The shifters are Deore dx. When looking up the model on bike]edit it shows the years 1993-'96. Any ideas what year tissue one is?

The newest it could be (if the DX was stock) is 1993, as DX was discontinued for MY1994.

The u-brake puts it at 1992 or earlier, as these had disappeared for MY1993.

If you want to know the exact date, someone on retrobike may know if you can't get the answer here. There is a 1991 model on this page http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...-bikes-12.html but it's not got a u-brake, maybe this was county specific?

Some more close up pictures would be useful, especially the shifters, and RD although given how old the bike is, may not have original parts.
