    1995 Mountain Cycles San Andreas....I think it's a 1995. Well it's a 1993.

    Well a friend of mine that owns a Pawn Shop bought this bike 3 weeks ago and now it's mine. I don't think the person that owned it ever took it off road. It is super clean, shifts perfectly, brakes work great and the elastomer suspension works still. All I did was give it a rag wash. Enjoy.

    It looks to me like the headset isn't pressed into the headtube all the way. Other than that, it's an amazing bike. Great score.

    I also found one in near unridden condition five years ago. It was a 96 with a Risse rear shock.

    That looks like a original or darn close flite saddle. They had a certain look at those times that I remember well. New success der? That's not usual. It would point to a early 90's bike imho

    I remember riding that bike and thinking, wow this is da chit! First bike I rode with disc brakes...it must have been around 1994 or 95??? Any old timers reading this...it was "Rocket" Rex Staten's bike. We were down in SoCal doing some suspension testing at Race Tech...man, that was along time ago.

    Sweet!
    What a score. Good idea of a shot of your garage with current bikes along side, jealous.

    That bike looks brand new. A museum piece.

    I was at the Norba Nationals at Big Bear 92'ish to 95'ish and a racer let me take one for a spin. Pretty high tech ride for the day.

    There's a member here that lives and breaths those bikes. Maybe pm him and pick his brain on it. Tell him DJ sent ya.

    Love those cranks! Back in the early '90s my roommate had a pair that I borrowed for many months before he made me give them back.

    That is one great example of a SanAn. Love it and don't change it.

    I knew Rex but I didn't know he was a mountain biker. He was in my club and did our suspension at the kind price of free. I always appreciated that about him. I've ridden with him too but I wish I would have known he pedaled also. Might know you.

    The shifting is great and the brakes are petty good but the elastomers in the suspension front and rear have nearly hardened to rock, they still move but not a lot. Probably getting 30mm front and rear. I'm taking it out to an XC race just to ride around and cheer on my Brother-In-Law Sunday. Probably gonna get some crazy looks.

    The ultimate pit bike I love it. I bought my sister a early nineties Park-Pre because she was going to get a Wally World bike. I wasn't going to let that happen, so I took the worn out Fork elastomers out and installed PVC pipe. She basically has a mint condition marzocchi Fork (rigid)

    Well I took it out to a local XC race but just rode it around spectating. The suspension is stiff but that's because the elastomers have gotten quite stiff but the bike shifts perfectly and the brakes work better than expected. It climbed pretty damn good but I was terrified coming down, narrow bars, 130mm stem and a front axle design that might not be able to get really tight scared me more than a little bit. How in the world did we ride bikes like this?

    Haha, most people don't realize how far bikes have come. They just ***** and complain about things changing so fast and new standards. Don't forget, that was a great DH bike in the day.
