    I own Joe's second mountain bike, built in 1978 and currently on loan to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. His first is in the Smithsonian collection. I also have the new "Repack" DH model. Here I am posed with Joe and both bikes, built 35 years apart.

    The t-shirt I am wearing in this photo is from the 1979 Crested Butte to Aspen Tour, where I rode this bike.

    I have a '97 Lightning I use for around town and rides with the kids. It was my primary bike until I picked up a '10 Thunder Elite a couple years ago. I bought it from a kid in Fairfax who raced for his highschool team. Apparently Joe sponsored the team. His mom told me that Joe lived right down the street from them.
    I'm not a fan of the current graphics on the bikes. If I were to get a new Breezer, it would be a Lightning partly because of the classic graphics.

    For me, riding on a breezer too difficult. I really don't know what is the reason behind it.

    I rented the Breezer Repack while in Vail, CO this summer. I really liked the bike and felt it handled the trails very well. That bike was more enduro and wasn't awesome climbing but it handled the rocky descents great.

    I put in over 50 miles on the bike. I was there for a week so I did almost every trail on that bike. I didn't do the black diamond downhill runs but all the others.

    Go to your local breezer dealer and jump on a few and get feel for them!
