I don't know that the geometry really changed much at all between 93 and 97. Also, geometry is in the eye of the rider. I personally prefer the geometry of my 87 CR over a 2002. Why? The older geometry is more comfortable to ride all day. Is it better? I don't know. The moral, don't buy a bike because someone else liked the way it felt.
dont you think you should get a newer bike because of all the other improvements made though(suspension, power, water cooled, etc) just a suggestion but i would go anywhere between 2000-2002 because i like green stickers and i have found it a million times easier to get parts for a 2002 and the frame was still better than the 93 it just sucked compared to the modern one
