I was going through some old photo albums and found some of my bikes from the '90's, thought you guys might appreciate one of them. Both are long gone, but not entirely forgotten
This was my first "real" bike, it had it probably around '93. Jamis Dakota that i upgraded with a Manitou 2. I don't remember much about it (I would have been about 12 at the time).
This was my second "real" bike. A friend of mine's older brother bought it, and i couldn't think about anything else for a long time. It was pretty much the coolest bike i'd ever seen. When he sold it a year later (around '95?) i snapped it up. It was an odd bike and in retrospect it was absolutely awful. But, it was a snowflake, and that counts for something.
Supposedly it was a Cannondale frame with the rear triangles hacked off, and one of the bike shops in my town told me that a company in Colorado was building them. The rear suspension was completely bolted on. Really high BB with a custom bash guard, standover height was...ahem...close. Long-travel Mag21. It was a downhill bike before its time. Those were the days...
Wound up selling it for almost nothing after starting high school. I had a car at that point and lost interest in mountain biking for a while.
Anyway, thought it was worth a share.
