    My first mountain bikes. GT Tequesta and Cycle Tech Wild Thing.

    My first mountain bike was a GT Tequesta. Loved the paint job. Don't know why I ran that smoked chrome fork unless the stock fork was bent. If I could find another of these in decent condition, I'd buy it and restore it. The Cycle Tech Wild Thing was my racing bike throughout the 90's. Later additions were spd's and wearing a camelback....lol.

    Photo's taken approximately Jan 23-1993. Twenty years later and I still love mountain biking.

    Awesome, my favorite thing you said was "Dont know why i ran that smoked crome fork" You know you have been biking a while when you look at something and cant remember why you did it in the first place. lOL LOL LOL

    Very nice bikes. The full sized crank sets look weird today dont they?

    Good for you. Welcome to the forum. I also agree that it's funny when you forget why you did something.

    It's due to a well described neurological condition called "youth"

    The cranks and chain rings are all one big shiney chrome piece. I also laugh at the gumwall tires on the cycletech. One thing funky about that old cycltech was that it had a 1 and 1/4" steerer tube! Yikes. Not the most common.

    The Tequesta was running a nice leather Brooks saddle. If I found a medium GT Tequesta in good shape, I'd want it.
