    How styles do change. Only a 10 year old girl would be caught wearing tights like that now.

    Since I published the first MTB magazine, all the old ads are in my collection. Here are a few.

    I *so* wanted one of those, but they were out of my price range.

    While not strictly an ad, this website has the Trek Catalogs dating back to 1984.

    Trek, Fisher, Klein, Lemond bike catalogs, bicycle brochures

    I love flipping through the old catalogs and seeing what was being marketed as the next thing in biking.

    I had a pair of those forks! In red ano, lasted about 6 months before I snapped the legs off.

    Now, I'm still riding a pair of Z1 bombers from 2006, and they are still going strong. How technology has changed!!

    In 1981 Specialized introduced their first product for the new type of bikes, a tire specifically designed for off-road. They called it the "Stumpjumper." They were a small company and didn't even have a publicity still photo to send us, so we had our house artist draw the tire.
