    How much travel do your forks usually have?

    My son's M2 came with the Specialized version of a Mag 21, at 63mm travel (?) but was switched to and raced with a Mach 5 at 70mm travel. Finally, in 2011 the Mach 5 was upgraded to an R7 with 80mm travel. Compared to the original design this obviously longer and has lifted the front end a little. However, the bike's original owner reports the ride is excellent, if a little less twitchy, and therefore perfect for the 11-year old that's just come up from 24" wheels.

    Aw I love classic MTBs. It's how I found this forum. I am looking at either restoring or creating a SS out of a 1992 Rocky Mountain Experience or a 1993 Kona Cinder Cone.

    Here is mine when I got it:



    Then, after spending a summer: buying, fixing, and re-selling similar bikes. I took a bunch of better parts from the other bikes and swapped them onto this one. I now have this, its my commuter/road training bike. Tough and reliable.



    Its actually even better now than in that pic. I have a better road saddle and semi road slick tires

    I want to get a set of mustache bars for it

    Just realized I actually have a hardrock... oh well, close enough

    Great stories and pics! I am still riding my '02 stumpy M4. put some disc brakes on a few years back (avid 5's) and am thinking of upgrading to 7's. On a similar note. I converted my Diamond Back Ascent from '87 into a SS for riding rail trail and easy single track.

    After over a decade of single track riding, I recently converted my '98 Specialized S-Works M2 to a neighborhood cruiser (23 lbs now) ..

    Great bikes.

    I recently took my '95 M2 Stumpy FS for a 20 mile trail ride. She had been limited to commuter duty for about a year. My modern fully bike was down for maintenance, so the Stumpy put on her knobbies again. I thought I'd be *****ing and moaning all day about not being on my other bike. To the contrary - I loved it. The limited suspension clearly has its limitations, but the frame is so stiff and responsive and the power transfer is so direct. Remembered why I always loved this bike.

    My wife has a similar era Hardrock. They are indestructible.
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.

    I’m still making miles on my old-timer Admiral Hardtail MTB. Back in 1998 it was my first REAL mountain bike :]] After lots of miles and… long years forgotten in garage… my bike is again on trail. With me :] I will definitely never sell it. Memories are not for sale.

    Very cool old stumpy

    I really love this old bike...My 1996 Trek 7000....gave it new life as a singlespeed / fully rigid with eXotic fork.....the geometry on these older bikes just seem to be more lively than modern rides....and it is always fun to make my riding buddies try to keep up with me on their expensive FS rigs!!!!

    My old 1993 Trek 8000 is due for a new life as well, soon as my 29er is done. I think there's broken bearings in pretty much every component!

    Sure love these old bikes, they are amazing workhorses.

    I still have my 1991 "purple haize" M2. Its been through several iterations - spent a few years covered in tape aka urban disguise while i lived in a big city. most recently its a SS with schwalbe fat franks and a baby seat! hasn't seen a trail in about 3 years (since it got saddled with the kid seat). went SS and rigid a few years ago which to me was only fun in small doses. all this talk is making me think i should swap some knobbys on it and hit the local trails.

    I like this thread! I was a mechanic back in the days of the first few M2's. Love them. I have the 2nd version (Barney Purple). I'll get a photo up here soon.

    My wife says I need to clear out some bikes, and I'm afraid that my 97 M2 may the one. It's in great shape and honestly didn't get much abuse. Anyone know how much I should ask for this classic bike?
