    1993 Specialized Hardrock Sport. I worked all summer to save for that bike, and half of the next summer to "upgrade" from a rigid front to an Answere Pro Forx (that thing sucked!). Lot of good times on that bike...

    1994 Marin Palisades Trail, with onZa grips and bar ends, Panaracer Smoke/Dart combo, and matching purple Profile bottle cages.

    Not actually mine, but close enough...

    That was my first Mtn Bike as well - looks almost exactly like that.
    I still have it, and it's the only mountain bike I ride.
    In 1984 or 85, I saw it in a bike store, had no idea what it was, but I could see it was perfect for me.
    I bought it and trained with it, then rode the Tecate to Ensenada ride with it.
    Most of the other riders had never seen a mountain bike.
    A few years later (~1988 or 89), I bought my wife the ladies version, which she still rides.

    I'll post pictures eventually.

    Duplicate post. I'll delete it if I figure out how.
    (my original post disappeared and now it appeared above - probably awaiting my account approval)

    ... it looks like my prevous post disappeared again now.

    1985 GT Timberline. Bought it brand new 30 years ago & it's still my only mountain bike.

    It's almost exactly like the one in this post:

    She was my first Motobecane 450HT From BD - She didn't last long (sold it) but she got me into the sport.

    IIRC It would be a 92 - 94 GT Timberline. Hardtail with a front fork giving like an inch of travel

    Meant to add: Gary Fisher was on his own back then and the hottest thing at the time.

    My first MTB's were a 1995 Trek 800 in 1994 when I was 10. Then upgraded to a green 1996 Gary Fisher Marlin in 1995. Both are gone now. Sold my Marlin in 7th grade to upgrade to a red 1997 Hoo Koo E Koo. I will never part with my HKEK. Just found a twin 1997 HKEK on CL. Pretty happy about it.

    1994 GT Timberline - BikePedia

    Bought brand new in 94? and still had it up until about 2007. It was pretty ratty, but still functioning perfectly. I gave it to someone at work to use as a beater city bike.
    I was never very athletic, academic, or handsome - so I rode bikes.

    Bought with money earned from a good report card. I wish I had pics of mine. I had many good times and some even better crashes with it. I still have/use the Onza bar ends I put on it on my current MTB.

    1988 GT Tequesta.

    Man that thing was heavy, but it got the bug going for sure.

    Here's the only pic I have... Grand Canyon ca. 1990

    Wow. So long ago. In high school in '78, I had a purple girls 26" clunker with just a pedal brake and Carlisle stud tires. I brought it shop class to put a gusset in where the down tube met the seat tube and the arc welder burned a hole right through the seat tube, both sides! No gears, no brakes, steel rims, stem and seat post. After that I bought a Schwinn typhoon 26" bike with a 2 speed kick back and a Sturmey Archer front brake out of the Gazette from a guy who lived in Strawberry. I separated my shoulder on that one.

    Performance budget model from ~1990 or so. Took it with me to college, in 3 months it was tagged twice, I actually didn't remove it the second time, I thought the pink would put off thieves, and then stolen in all its pink glory. I got it back about a week later, still pink, then kept it until sophomore year when I sold it to a Japanese student for a 6 pack of beer.

    1992 Raleigh Chill. Absolutely loved that bike.

    After riding it hard for four solid years, I rode it sporadically from 1997 until 2005. Started riding it frequently again in 2005 until I upgraded in 2012. My wife still rides it on the rails to trails.

    After upgrading I realized how poorly that bike fit me!

    Mine was a 1987 Specialized Hardrock I bought new at the beginning of the year. I gave it to a coworker when I bought a new 1996 Stumpjumper M2FS Comp.
