    Peugeot steel ridgid hardtail with Phil Wood hubs. Was stolen from my blue 4wd Suburu wagon near the Cow Palace.

    My first was a 83 norco bigfoot.
    Paid 350$ for it back then
    expensive cars are a waste of money. Expensive bikes...not so much!

    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...

    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.
