    Here’s my 1985 Ritchey Commando that I ordered with Phil Wood Hubs.
    The tires are the only things that are not original.

    Used Cannondale, probably 1994/5 was the first. The first Mountain Bike that I bought new was a Cannondale F600 around 1999.

    A Trek 950 Single Track back in 1991. It's still sitting in my basement but the Manitou 2's are complete junk. I got the elastomer replacement kit and may look to bring her back to life as a change of pace bike, I just need the motivation. Or maybe I just scrap that idea and look for something used & newer. It's funny, some dude on craigslist is trying to sell the same bike, "vintage" and $800 back in the day, for $225. HA! Get real pal

    My planet x zebdi was my first mountain bike. It was a nice transition from bmx....now I'm on a cross country bike 12 years later.

    Oh and I recently resurrected it as a dj bike complete with a new powdercoat.

    A Trek 3900. Since I've move on to a better bike, I've attached a child trailer to the 3900 and it is now my 2 year grandson's bike. He loves going out for a ride.

    My first bike I went mountain biking on was from wal-mart. It barely survived the week trip I took it on. Grip shifter broke, rear wheel came out of true, etc.

    A couple years later I got a 2006 Giant Yukon. Here is an image I found of it somewhere. I'm younger so it isn't a rigid etc.

    Mine was a 1997 Diamondback Sorrento. I loved that bike and rode everywhere all the time. I remember being jealous of my friend's Diamondback with a RockShox fork.

    If you mean the first bike I went down a hill on, it was a rusty old frame I found under a bush in about 1970, no tires, no saddle, no brakes, no chain, just a pure downhill racer! Used it for a while until it fell apart, then bought my son some French bike in about '86 that was purpose built. That was so much fun I went out and bought myself a D Back. That was about 87. Lots since then...
    It's all Here. Now.

    Schwinn Jaguar circa 1958

    Schwinn Jaguar circa 1958. Fat tires, basic front suspension, gears, rim brakes and ridden on dirt trails. Mountain bikes are nothing new.

    First mountain bike of the so-called "modern" era? Giant Iguana circa 1991 or so. Rigid with Suntour SCM groupo.

    It was called a 'Sterling - Super Discovery' and I was probably 10 or 11 when I got it (20 years ago!). It was too big but I was able to grow into it. Lower end components but it lasted me until I was 16 or so when I got a hand me down Cannondale.

    Edit - Check out that elevated chain stay.. sweeeet!

    I bought my 1984 Schwinn Sierra brand new. 2 years later I sold it and bought a new 1986 High Sierra which I still own and sometimes ride. Ridden it through Yellowstone Park, Blueridge & Smoky Mtns and last summer the Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park. Still has original roller-cam brakes. I use it for bad weather commuting and gravel touring.

    I had the 1987, in bright yellow. The catalog that year was all about how awesome indexed shifting was. Braze-ons all over, and 3 spare spokes for a chainstay protector. I actually did a lot of loaded touring with mine.

    Bianchi ocelot. Suntour components. Wasted so much time and money trying to mod it. Was only 13 at the time and barely had any money. I remember I wanted a control tech stem and rock shox quadra fork but never happened. Bike eventually got stolen and painted green by some criminal as my brother spotted it. It led to us being subpoena to court to testify. The dude that stole my bike got community service hours. I was reimbursed by insurance which led to specialized stumpjumper ht in black.. Awesome bike back then.

    Specialized StreetStomper. I'm guessing 1988, but can't remember as I was pretty young when I got it. It was revolutionary with Shimano SIS thumb shifters.

    The below picture is very similar / but I just found it online. It looks like the chain rings on this one have been upgraded to biopace. Very fancy. I just had regular cranks / chainrings.

    I left mine in the UK when I moved to the US 11 years ago. No idea if its still alive...

    1992 or 91? Giant Acapulco. My parents got it for me when I was12 because I was a fat kid and their solution was to get me a bike, make me ride to/from school and sign me up for the school bike mountain bike club to get me involved something active. Now at 32, I'm a 6'0" 165 lb adult Cat 3 road, cyclocross & mountain bike racer... guess the plan worked.

    Mine was a '92 Roadmaster. Pretty sure it weighed about 45 pounds. Cracked the frame after a year or so riding it.

    Nah, cat 3 road, my mountain bike racing is limited to mostly the local 24-hour race and and some other occasional longer distance races that don't require USAC licenses.

    Early 90's GT Pantera so that I could ride with several of my college roommates. Neon as only a late 80's/early 90's bike could be. Six hundred bucks lead to a whole lifetime of endorphin addiction.

    Trek 830 back in about 1989. Pretty sure it weighed a good bit LESS than my current Cannondale but...

    1988 Diamondback Ascent. Biopace. Added bear claws and toe clips and a hiterite. Sold it for $200 when I bought my GF HKII in 1991.

    My first mountain bike was a 1984 Univega Alpina Uno. I bought it new for $300. Mountain bikes were very new back then and this was only the second one I had ever seen. I still have the bike and have ridden it as my primary mountain bike for the past 28 years. I just got a used Scott 29er two weeks ago so I hope it last me another 28 years...

    1985 Mongoose ATB with Suntour Mountech derailleurs. Next was a 1988 Bridgestone MB-3. That was a great bike. Lugged steel frame with triple butted Ishiwata tubing and a Ritchey fork.

    '94 rigid Spesh Rockhopper bought from Rayments Cycles in Brighton in a sale in '95. Sold it to a friend about three years ago on condition he sells it back to me if he no longer wants it.

    I'm currently rebuilding my oldest friends first mtb, a Saracen Backtrax from '96.
