Old School For Life!
The way the discussion was headed with bar ends got me to thinking about Old School Stuff.
What was your first mountain bike:Model, Brand, Year, Equipment and what other stuff do you remember from "The Good Old Days"?
My first mountain bike was a Fisher Montare back in 1987. It had:
Original Deore XT derailers and Cranks
A Doug Bradbury roller cam rear brake mounted under the chainstays.
A Hieght Right spring on the seatpost
Big motorcycle sized Dia Compe Levers
Fisher Fattrax Tire 2.125(Still the best tire I have ever had Tioga DH tires are similar)
Grab On foam grips
Advocet Leather Saddle.
Araya RM20 Rims
In fact I still have a Fisher Procaliber from 1989 in my basement.
When Fisher's were made by Gary Fisher and not just called Gary Fisher's!!
Remember Scott Shock's and Rock Shock Mag 20's I've got them both! I've got a big box filled with old school ****.
