    Trek 820. I'd post it up but they didn't have digital cameras in 1992.

    at the time i got the DB Ascent ex i was originally gonna get an overdrive at that time 29er but they where sold out and they only had 1 DB the one in my photo or a John Tomac Signature Mongoose i looked at both and the Tomac mongoose look classy but the Ascent ex looked futuristic for the time! with the Predecessors of the Rapid fires and the predecessors of the Shimano Saint brakes shimano exage in 93 was very futuristic looking for its time! for todays bike world its obsolete but back than it was futuristic!

    Bright red 199? Specialized Hard Rock -- the entry level model. Didn't ride that on a trail until years later, but that first trail was an out and back to Dutch Creek starting from the bottom part of Hermosa Creek Trail. That really lit the fire.

    1991 Hardrock. Found this pic on the intarwebs. Same color with same matching water bottle cage . I even had a white specialize water bottle to match. Lol. Had one of those bell helmets with the spandex sock thing.

    Ended up breaking the original forks (think only the frame or mayve even the main triangle was chromo and fork that year was mild steel). Replaced it with a newer (95?) rigid hardrock fork that was chromo (dark green and pink). Ovalized the head tube on the original frame and replaced it with another hardrock frame which was black and yellow (don't know year, mid 90s). Pretty much everything was replaced: saddle, seat post, stem and bars etc.I kept my pink toe clip straps for pretty much the life or the bike (one of the few things I didn't break). Ended up being a pretty ugly bike in the end. Wonder if there are any shots of me with it in an old year book (road on the school team with that pieced together bike)...

    1995 Schwinn Moab Elite

    What was left of the chrome moly beast when I stripped the parts and gave the frame to a local co-op.

    I don't know the details on my first one besides it being a blue and yellow hardtail made by Pacific. A real workhorse though, it took a lot of abuse and hundreds of miles a year and the only thing I ever had to replace on it was a few pairs of new tires.

    I am older and bought my first mtn bike about 1986 - a Bike Nashbar ridgid (was there anything else?).

    It had all the latest stuff, "biopace" chain rings. "indexed" thumbshifters. "U Brake" chain stay mounted rear brake (what a (#@*$ disaster that idea was). It was all I could afford at about $330. While it was nice for a while, it fell apart under rough use. I ended up buying new wheels after destroying them from just wear and tear. Bottom bracket (no name loose ball). Headset (loose ball). Bike would not keep a tune and required frequent repair/adjustments.

    I ended up turning it into a commuter bike which it was decent for, but then eventually gave it to a bike coop where they have ghetto kids rebuild bikes.

    I got so tired of replacing stuff and still having a crappy ride I went in '93 and paid $1000 (huge money in those days) for a Cannondale with headshok. Was so stoked to do a ride and find that the bike was still tuned.

    Hey guys I'm getting my very first bike tomorrow it'll be a Specialized Hardrock. However, I'm stuck on which one to choose and wonder if I can get help as an entry level rider. I have a $500 budget as for now. It's pretty much going to be used everyday for at least an hour and every weekend for about 2-3 hours on trails and parks.

    Buddy of mines has a 2004 Specialized Hardrock Sport $75, completely stock. Then use the spare money to do some upgrades if not upgrade all parts of the bike. Then get other gears.
    or
    Should I go for the 2011/2012 Specialized Hardrock brand new and not worry about any upgrades for now.

    1984 (?) Schwinn Sierra. I added Oakley BMX grips, Specialized Ground Control tires. I once rode it in a 50-mile race in Pennsylvania - the Punxsutawney Groundhog 50.

    The fork broke attempting a 4' ish drop onto flat concrete. The drop was a loading dock at the Medina Supply in Medina, Ohio next to Garfield School. I still occasionally cut the scar on my chin from that when I shave.

    LOL - exactly like my 88' Diamonback. All I remember about the U-Brake was how well it packed up mud ;-) Rest of the bike was solid though.
