DHOs were 1997 only.
The DHO model was produced into mid-98 and still be sold new in 1999. There are distinct differences between the 1997 and 1998 or later versions, the 1997 had 4" travel and rim-brake mounts only. The 1998+ had 4.5" travel and had both rim brake and rockshox's then new disc mount (which later became the industry standard 51mm mount).

Fair enough, I was only going off the 99 RS spare parts catalogue and my hazy memory. DHO is only listed for 1997

Worked for the UK importers (admittedly as a lowly mechanic) from 98-99. I don't recall seeing any new DHOs brought over in this time.

Interestingly enough both the RS catalog and BikePro shows the 97 fork with disk mounts.

They were very poor sellers. Pricepoint was clearing them out (the 4.5" travel version) a few years ago for about $200US a fork as I recall brand new. There was a string of posts on here about the time of people asking if they were worth buying.
