That DX is smokin! Great Bikes ! What is the Drop bar bike?
Ritchey Timber Comp with a WTB cockpit.
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.
You must be if its got a brooks
Everything i have is 26'.
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.
Some of us do...
The tom sawyer is sexy^
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 mine from the early 90's. Now as a single speed with a few updated parts.
As it was for 20 years
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!
Here's a couple of mine. I also have a Diamond back Axis.
Love the rigid forks on this one... oversize tubing and nearly straight
Here is my Nishiki . I like rigid bikes more than fs.
I like that frame! Cool how they made the chainstays like that.
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.
I'd so love to add one of those Treks to my corral , Is that a Whisky fork ?
