    I have the same one in green with yellow lettering, bought it at my lbs with the intent to learn to ride for $110 but felt bad scratching it up and i won a wally world bike for $5. Have any clue what year? I guess late 80's.

    Hey 41DX,, awesome collection!!!!!!!! and that 2nd shot of you riding is classic, way back off the seat. I really think that todays MTB'ers have no idea the skill level it took to get a fully rigid bike down the trails.

    Thanks for the nice compliment. The thing I like about that picture is the feel of the ride shown by the way the the chain is slapping..

    I should have had it in the big ring.......

    Downhill course Keyesville classic....

    Here's "Babe the Blue Ox" in all her glory. She's an `89 Trek 830 Antelope (manufactured 10/88) that I picked up at Goodwill for $15 last year. I've spent 10x that getting her to the point she's at now. I love this bike, it has it's own personality. Somedays she's lazy and fights every crank and shift, other days I have a hard time keeping up with her.

    I have a Skykomish MTB that I bought for $20 and made it into a SS.

    Here's a video of it in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZeI5AXm5c0

    Also, I just got a 94 Cannonade Killer V 900 last week that I'm working on.

    My first mtn. bike, a '91 Diamondback Ascent EX. A long-time roadie, I Instantly fell in love with off-road riding.
    I've had a couple of other of other mtn. bikes since then (full susp.) which were a lot more plush riding, but this is still the best handling by far. An absolute blast to ride.
    I just cleaned it up and put it all back together maybe a year or so ago. Didn't have all the original stuff (REALLY wish I still had the original gumwall tires... :? ), but did it up the way it was with all the stuff I'd put on it when I last rode it on a regular basis, so there's some major nostalgia going on anyway. Love the way they ran the three cables across the top tube. MmmMmmMmmmm!

    Today a friend called me up and asked if I wanted this Rockhopper. I took it but not sure what I'll be doing with it.
