    I miss my old KHS Montana

    Long story short, I rode a lot in college on a 1990 KHS Montana, Ritchey rims, rigid fork and Deore XT components. Got married, rode less. Had kids, rode even less. The bike sat neglected for about 10 years, 3 houses and 3 states. I decided I wanted to get back in to riding, "but of course I needed a new ride", so I got rid of the old horse. Now after 3 years of riding again I miss my old steel frame beast and wish I had never let her go. If I could find another I would buy it. She looked like this minus the pink handlebars:

    Today I am sad, miss my old steed and wanted to post.

    That was my first real mtn bike. Can't beat the feel of that true temper OX-2. My montana comp came with a mag 20 that developed a cracked lower. Never rode it after that. Think I gave it to a buddy years ago. Remember it was a rich deep purple. Man I miss that bike. Thanks for digging back up the great memories.

    That's it on ebay right now! Looks in good shape. Only at 10 bucks/2 bids/5hrs left. Tempting.
