    60$ at goodwill...Specialized Street Stomper. Just needs some fenders...and a midge...and barcons...



    It's got some whacky shimano mega range cassette too. I can't find much info about the bike itself, but I think it's going to be a great commuter/tourer. Funky color too, don't you think?

    I just put some VO fenders on my High Sierra today. Here's a quick photo that I snapped with my phone.

    Resurrected Bridgestone 1993 MB-1. My current urban street bike. Frame stripped with a grey repaint. NOS Shimano Deore XT drivetrain with M730 crank and XTR rings. Deore XT shifters and brakes, XTR pedals, Brooks saddle, Thomson seat post, Ritchey bar and stem. Velocity rims with Continental Sport Contact tires, XT hubs. Shark fin chain guard. Acorn seat bag and handlebar tool bag. While mostly original, I wasn't looking to make an authentic restoration but a build on a quality vintage MTB frame with a few upgrades to suit me.IMG_2325.JPGIMG_2326.JPGIMG_2328.JPGIMG_2329.JPG

    @jbchybridrider Excellent photo of your Peugeot. I never get tired of seeing it, gorgeous paint and set up.

    Found this at a garage sale this weekend. It is a '92 (I think) Bianchi Peregrine. It is too small so it is listed on CL.

    I'm going to repost my 1985 Sekai Bigfoot solely because I changed out the tires on it from 1.95's to 2.2's at 40 psi AND changed the handlebars to Soma Oxford bars (Albatross knock offs). Still have the Dia-Compe motorcycle brake levers but changed the Suntour plain friction thumb shifters to the Suntour XC Sport "Power Ratchet" shifters. I only had red cable housing on hand and since this setup is an experiment, it's what I used.
    Wheel base is approx. 41.5" & chain stays are approx 18.5", seat tube angle is 69 degrees & head tube is approx 70 degrees.

    The red housing works GREAT with that pewter paint job!

    4" from back of seat tube to front of tire - definitely a limousine!

    @LesterOfPuppets- Thanks neighbor! The red are two different types though - 1 is from my 1987 Miyata & is more ruby or blue red & (the clear kind where you see the spiral metal) & the other is leftover JagWire red, more orange-y red. If I like the red look I'll get some more of the old fashioned kind from an online place.

    I really debate about getting this thing powder coated. I went to a place to look at color chips & just not sure.

    Lester, you going on the C & V ride?

    I love the Ritchey "Bi-plane" crown fork... that fork makes the 1992 and 1993 MB-1 really stand out!

    IMG_2329.JPG

    I love the gray, it reminds me of my 1991 Stumpjumper Comp that came stock in matte gray and full bombproof XT 7 speed!

    My newly acquired and overhauled '82 Stumpjumper. So much fun to ride.

    Everything but the saddle and rear wheel are original, as far as I can tell. It even came with the original tires, which had plenty of tread left, but the sidewalls were dry rotted.

    I ended up using moped clutch cables and housing for the brakes, since the Tomaselli levers take those large hammerhead ends they don't make for bikes anymore.

    The paint has a fair amount of small chips, and the entire frame appears to be chromed underneath. Didn't expect that.

    @truckface - wow, that bike is gorgeous! How's it ride? Is that crankset TA Cyclotourist? I understand that company's used touring components on early mountain bikes. I love that crankset.

    1988 Panasonic MC-7500. Tange MTB Prestige Tubing with Deore XT. I've wanted one since '88 and found one on Craigslist just five miles from my house. Lucky.

    Thanks, @Velocivixen! This is actually my first ever MTB, so I'm not sure how it compares to other MTBs, but it rides a lot like a laid back tourer that's especially nimble. The ride's cushier than I expected with the 1.75" tires, and their lighter weight probably contributes to its zippyness. So far I've only ridden it on the streets of Brooklyn, but it's been eating up potholes and shaking off railroad crossings with ease. Looking forward to getting it on some dirt and gravel soon.

    And yep, that's a Cyclotouriste crankset. Specialized seems to have had a lot of fun sourcing the stoutest components they could find for these first-year Stumpies. In addition to the TA cranks, they came stock with MAFAC tandem cantilevers, Tomaselli motorcycle levers, Suntour BMX pedals, custom Nitto stems/bars, Suzue this, Araya that, some Tange over there and an Avocet on top.

    It feels a bit like uncovering a time capsule someone buried to remind the future of all the companies from around the world who were just killing it back then.

    @truckface - I think it's cool that there are so many famous brands all on one bike! Feel free to post more photos, esp. Close ups. I can imagine your ride is smooth.

    Very nice bike and I especially like those handlebars! Just the right amount of pullback and WIDE!

    Hey thanks! Though true credit should go to Sinyard and Neenan, I suppose.

    I've never ridden bars like these, but they are pretty enjoyable. The original grips tore when I pulled them off, so I tried to recreate their look using cloth tape and keeping the trademark red end caps. My plan is to eventually make this my every-day super commuter, so it might end up with drop bars or something else a bit narrower. Figured I should give it some riding time in its (nearly) original state before messing with it too much.

    Hey guys thought I would chime in from NZ.
    Horizon MTB that I know nothing about . . . it came up on a auction site and I bought it.
    Does anyone know anything more? I realize its a stab in the dark.
    new 002.jpg
    Bars and stem are not original it had tallish risers on it, had some vintage bars knocking about so on they went.
    Where are the Bikeaholic meetings? . . . . . I need help!? I just don't think I can do this alone.

    Behold the humble bicycle . . .the oldest form of mechanical transport for the individual person.
    It will be the last too.

    Re-Cycle that Bicycle. Fix it, Ride it, Give it away.

    Out of my six steeds this gets the most use. 1986 Fisher Montare. Picked this up as just a frame and fork...no bottom bracket for $5. Luckily we have a fellow in town that's a vintage mtb guy and had a spindle for it and brand new bearings that he just gave to me. Because finding those two things can make or break a project like this very quickly. Tried it keep it relatively period correct and comfy at the same time. The B67 saddle and ESI super chunky grips are a godsend. Im looking to pick up some barend just to make it a little more comfy. The drivetrain is a little offbeat but I don't like triples and this works perfect for me...2x7 with a Suntour GPX FD, XT thumbies. I've got the original fork but tossed on this unknown fork that came off a 88 MB1. Though it's not original to the MB1 so I have no clue and it doesn't look like a factory made fork. I swapped it in hopes to make the steering a little less floppy but no luck but I've grown used to it now.


    Sorry for the grainy picture as I was just outside and my old Iphone isn't the best at photos.

    I've got a pair of Specialized HardRocks, both in excellent condition with only the tires and tubes being new.

    First up is a '95 Ultra in their "Black Cherry" finish with (as far as I can tell) a full Shimano Alivio group set.

    WP_20140705_11_39_31_Pro.jpg

    The second is a '97 GX Sport.

    I do however need to take some better photos as I managed to cut the handlebars off both pictures.

    Nice Stumpjumper Truckface. I'd be careful of parked car's mirrors with those wide handlebars. The motor cross style brake levers go back the early Marin County Klunker builders. So early MTB builders used them too. chris

    Ha. Yeah, I definitely need to be more aware. Actually clipped a mirror slightly this morning, but the car was parked in the bike lane so I figured it deserved it.

    One of my partners at Dynamic Composites built this in '99 for Rocky Mountain... he said that they cracked one frame during extreme downhill tests but broke 10 aluminium frames.





    Full suspension design went in a different direction and the the cost to produce the carbon fibre main frame was twice that of aluminium, that and it was getting built on this side of the pond makes this a one of a kind bike although 10 carbon frames were produced and 9 are in storage.
