    I know a guy that rides the wheels off a yellow one, I see him on the trail all the time.

    does anyone even ride it anymore? or just restore it for display? I think collectors who have their hands on these wouldn't dare bring them to a trail haha

    My 2003 M1. The thing still rocks after all these years. It used to black, changed it up about 3 years ago. It is getting hard to get parts for it now days though. I'm getting the 5th "Avalanched" this winter. Hopefully get 2 more years out of it. It's super fast, but I am jonesing for new technology.

    That's an Intense that was painted/decaled for Haro. Might as well call it an Intense now that it's stripped.

    True but I think the DHR's were the only M1's w/ the adjustable seat mast off an old Uzzi. It's not an exact copy of a production M1.

    Here's a picture of my "linked dogbone" version of that DH bike. I think this one was an updated version (2nd edition) of the Fulcrum DH. The one with the crazy drive train & dual BB. It weighs 40#'s. The bike is from '99, the technology is old, but I still take it out every chance I get. I just love ALL old DH bikes. The ones posted here are just beautiful!

    I agree. This beast rips. Wish I had the skills to really use it, but I do my best. Its pretty much a brand new frame after the fresh PC and factory rebuild no play at all in the dog bone link ( thanks to Greg at Turnerbikes). I will be riding this turner for a few more years.

    you want old school DH bikes?



    check out my team bike from 1994 - Bombproof D-2

    with AMP Research Mac-Strut rear suspension giving 3.5" and Rockshox Judy DH fork

    fork was custom fitted with Sachs hydraulic disc brake (before the Judy actually had disc mounts)



    our team bikes ran Kore and Azonic finishing kit, TWP fork brake and TWP AMP brace, Bullet Bros chain tensioner, SACHS New Success transmission, Wellgo platform pedals, Selle San Marco saddle with carbon fibre rails and FIR / Sachs wheelset with prototype IRC tires

    at first glance I thought that was the old AMP/Rock Shox hydro-mechanical disc brake! Remember the dual crown Judy DH forks? The dual crown Judy was all the rage and I had to have one (never did get one unfortunately).

    I really think this model Cannondale was the turn in suspension performance. I never rode one and KHS ripped off the design but after that the VPP bikes were already in the plans. Then you had Karpiel and Canfield already playing with dual link systems like the Fulcrum.

    Some more classic rigs

    Karpiel Disco Volante (hasn't changed much over 10 years, this one is an '04)


    K2 Animal!!


    GT DHi


    Out of curiosity, does anyone know the Mongoose DH bike from the late '90's? It had a large "monocoque-ish" downtube and a basic 4 bar rear end. I had almost bought one in 1999 with a boxxer on it. I will never forget that bike because it was the first real DH bike I had ever set my eyes on, and rode.

    Sure, I'll play. Bender's ride with the Super Monster; 12" (305mm) of travel.

    just rode with a friend who has an 02 disco. I got to ride it around a bit. Super plush. Still a great rig for sure!

    I think that was another Intense Uzzi DH/M1 variant painted for another company. There were a few years there that several other companies were racing and selling Intenses.

    I know which bike you are talking about. It was the Intense M1, and I believe it was Eric Carter that was riding it at the time.



    The Mongoose I am talking about was before that. I believe it was based on the Mongoose VRS. It was similar to this but a little beefier. It may have actually been a VRS. I just remember looking at it and riding it and it was nothing like I had ever seen or felt before!



    A couple others I came across

    Specialized FSR Team DH


    Norco VPS


    Diamondback XTS Moto


    Rotec


    BMW (not the car)


    Risse Racing's bolt together DH bike

    Exactly.

    Both Mongoose and Kawasaki had such.

    I have a Kawasaki edition that still sees frequent use.

    The Super 8 I ride now was my dream bike when I was 16. I wanted the Scuba Yellow but the opportunity arose to purchase this bike. I remember making a dream wishlist in one of my computer classes and it was built to the list. White Bros. DH3, Purple Hayes, Kooka stem and all. Some drivetrain components have changed through the years, but mostly remains unchanged. I don't ever think I will let it go because it is my dream rig.

    That's pretty awesome man. I've been wanting to build one of these old bikes with some of the newer tech available now and make my own old school resto mod beast.
