Thanks. They tried going into MTB in the early 90's but eventually they stuck to road bikes. I don't think they've made many. I think most of them are in Québec.

Picked up an old Scott mountain bicycle today. The bike is not mine, but one that was donated to Bicycles for Humanity. I will build it up, take some pictures and then place it into the Bicycles for Humanity Vintage Bicycle Inventory...

Just picked this up earlier in the evening. I'll take some better photos and post them, but this is one CLEAN mountain bike!



Not a scratch on the frame, with components that have hardly been used... like I said; one clean mountain bike!

Anyone have any experience with the Haro Escape models? I just picked up an "AO" frame from work for free! All the reviews I have read gave it rave reviews, especially mtbr where those guys are usually brutal about EVERYTHING. 4-5 chilis on every single review. I am psyched to get it built up in my own style. I was thinking a 1x9 possibly? It's pretty scratched up, so it will get a cheapo
paintjob, or maybe even powder.,,,,BD

Despite trying to not buy any new bikes, this followed me home for cheap from the parking lot of the trexlertown swap meet last weekend:



87 Schwinn Sierra in "black chrome", someone has upgraded most of the parts on it. XT rear derailleur, LX front, newer LX brakes, suntour xc thumb shifters, lx hubs, xt skewers.

New looking blackburn rear rack and an awesome silver front rack that was a little bent but I've managed to bend it back most of the way after this picture. No branding on the front rack other than "Made in Japan" stamped in the bottom of the fork crown support, can anybody id it?

Also came with the cool set of JandD bags, which I almost bought separate from the guy earlier in the day anyways, since I'm a sucker for jandd stuff.

Had to replace a busted spoke nipple on the rear wheel (I think the spokes are too short) and I need to adjust the headset but the bike fits great.

Your Sierra and my Fisher should get together and go bowling. Lol. They have the same bar and stem combo, it seems.

Anyone have any pointers on servicing the mudcatching rear brake? Having some trouble getting it back together.

Chris: Nice High Sierra, that looks like a great setup! I'm loving the black chrome finish, it looks even better in person than in photos.

realestvin: Ha nice, the high angled stem and the riser bars make for a pretty comfy ride. I think mine are stock, although the photo in the catalog has a two-bolt stem, they look very similar:

I rode an almost identical 1984ish Orient Express for years. It did not come with a springer saddle. I too loved the bull moose bars. Finally sold it to a room mate in the 90s sometime after I bought my Trek 8000.

It looks like the finish on yours is in great shape. Mine is pretty beat up, but it still makes people say "wow!"

I like it. I have the same bike but a couple sizes smaller. It was going to be a touring bike for my wife but the top tube was too long. I need to get it put back together.

I added the Brooks B-66. It came with the standard black vynl covered saddle. I like the bull moose bars also.

Realestvin7 has me so tempted on that 22" Schwinn, it's hard for me to find anything bigger then a 21" MTB around here. I have been completely off of my feet for almost a month due to swelling from diabetic problems and I was able to get out yesterday for a bit & found the 8spd Deore LX RD in black in our box of parts derailleurs at the shop. I got it all rebuilt, cleaned & painted and ready to install on my Diamond Back Topanga this morning, I am hoping to have it installed and adjusted by this afternoon if my feet can handle it.

Tomorrow there is a local police bicycle auction that I want to attend, I have never been to a police auction before ( only township auctions) so I don't know what to expect. The township auctions you would bid on a couple of bikes then they would auction the whole row ( which I would buy) but I don't know if they do that at the police auction. Anybody here ever been to one and know how they work.

The black chrome Schwinns are awesome, I want one of those one day. I use to have a Chromonero Pinarello for about a week that was one of the best looking bikes ever.

Here's my '87 Schwinn Cimarron LE. It doesn't much look like it did when it was new. Outfitted with NOS Cannondale bags. I never ride it, it just sets under a plastic drop cloth.

Bridgestone MB-2 frame converted into a daily rider / townie:



None of the parts are original, not even the fork. I found the frame in a pile at the bike co-op, painted it and added the twine on the top-tube as a protector. Suntour Vx rear derailleur, Deore XT friction thumbshifters.
