Not quite a shoot-out, but definitely two nice examples of hand made steel frames. The green bike is a fillet-brazed Brodie Romax that has been retro-fitted with Columbus track drop-outs. The Team Violet bike - is a Team Violet 91 Yo.

The picture is pretty weak, but I wanted to share.

2 different geoms.: all canadian hts seem to have steep seat tubes and longer head tubes. funny cause they cater to the same kind of trails: slow, steep and technical.
nice bikes. is the yo a medium? i thought you would size a S/M.

It actually looks more like a repainted rocky mountain to me. That lug at the top of the seat tube and those dropouts, with the U-brake... just screams avalanche, tantalus and thunderbolt.

D-8 - You're wrong on this one. Brodies often came with the rear seatstay mounted U-brake. Check the details against mine - spot on. In particular, check the finishing at the top of the seatstays.

I have an '88 Brodie ClimbMax. It is the same layout (lugged seat tube, seatstay U-brake) as that pink/blue Brodie. Originally built with Tange MTB, Brodie switched to Prestige in late '89 early '90. A really great deal back then...
