    5 vintage MOMBAT bikes in 20 Anniversary BIKE mag

    A couple of months ago, BIKE magazine sent a photographer out to take pictures of some of our vintage bikes for their 20th anniversary issue. We provide 5 of the 6 bikes for the "^ odd bikes that awed" feature. Each bike was a full page. They shot 16 bikes and some detail shots so their may be some photos in future issues as well.

    Very cool pics. I'm not sure that that Trek ever "awed" anyone though.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Those Yeti/Raleigh Carbon/Ti tubed bikes where probably the 1st MTBs to make me drool.

    Soo sexy!

    For the FS side the San Andreas in my mind was sooo 'moto'. Would love one still today.

    I turned up in the same issue. Willie Nelson looks more like me every day.

    When they sent the photographer for the shot, I asked if I should bring a bike. No, they wanted me to bring a piano.

    A bike would have been easier.
