    I've been riding my 1989 MB-1 on the local singletrack and even "skills" areas and it's just pure fun. Just ordered a Karate Monkey, so now I'll have a 29'er with disc brakes.

    Thanks! It's a shame they quit making them. The frame is so versatile being able to go with a IGH and belt drive if one chooses.

    I still keep my eye out for a frame but I might spend a bit more and get one of these soon:

    I have four Trek 930's, '90,'93, '95 and '96. The '96 had a suspension fork on it but I replaced that with a cross bike rigid fork and a 29er wheel setup. The '90 is wearing road wheels with 700/35 tires.
    My only off road riding is on the Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills where there is no need for suspension. The trail goes from Edgemont SD, to Deadwood on an abandoned railroad ROW.

    I only have the vintage part (neither steel nor rigid). I bought my Cannondale M500 brand new in 1995 and it has been my favorite bike ever since. I lost the rigid front fork during my last move but still have the vintage Amp F3XC fork on it. It is my road/rails to trails bike, outfitted with XT V's and slicks. It has a lot of trail miles on it from when I bought it thru the early 2000's. From the mid 2000's to present it's seen mainly rails to trails. Still can't believe some of the steep downhills I did with this fork.




    My other vintage bike is a 1996 Scott Vertigo LSD. Something crazy about this bike with patent infringement in the US because this bike was mainly available in Europe. Anyway, cool bike, and I've been riding it on the trails instead of my 29er this year. It's lighter and has full suspension so no contest. I put speed springs in the Judy XC and a Fox air shock on the rear when the original crapped out.

    1994 Cannondale M600! It was conscripted to commuter duty and I never really used it on the trails when it had WTB Raptors on. Oh well.

    Hi have a 1990 Fat City Cycles Wicked Fat Chance. I am in the process of adding a sprung saddle and a north roads handlebar for more comfortable.IMG_1376.jpg

    I rebuilt this 1993 Diamondback Sorrento into a neighborhood and in town cruiser. Keeps my FS off the streets. Plus it gave me something to do this spring while it was cold and rainy.

    I bought my Specialized Hardrock Sport back in the late 90's. Steel, no suspension. I've never sold it due to the fact that it's a good utility bike and fairly comfy to ride. I put on some 26x2.0 Michelin Pilot tires, smooth city tires with lots of air inside. I use it to bomb around town, pull my daughter's trail a bike, pull my Burley Nomad cargo trailer, etc. It's almost a hybrid bike by today's standards, since all the mountain bikes at this point have suspension forks, most of them have 29" wheels, etc.

    So, yes, in answer to your question, still riding mine. I've turned mine into an urban bike, the opposite direction as you've gone, but I have a set of MTB tires hanging on the wall that I could swap on her in 10 minutes if I wanted to do some dirt.

    Yep, 1999 Specialized Hardrock Classic. Just can not beat the feel of rigid steel.

    Still racing my 93 Giant Sedona. Of course the drive train is XTR 9 spd and the fork is a Sid Hard to beat a frame that you can reweld sections if they get damaged. Original colors: sid404b.jpg

    Interesting thread. I recently scored a 94 DB Topanga at the local Goodwill. It's in great condition for the age; I might just keep this one. I was never a big fan of mountain bikes, but now find myself gaining interest in them. Well, really all bikes. I think I have a bike problem.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I have this 1983 Mongoose ATB, I was going to fix it up and ride it even though its way to tall for me, but I changed my mind when I did a test fit! (I like my nutz where they are thank you very much! LOL!)

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
