    They ride very nicely. They feel super fast. Almost like you're JT himself.

    Very nice pics Vitorzip. I like what the number plate adds to the nostalgic look.

    Nice pics, ER. Yeah that last one must be preseason or something before DB's shipment of forks came in. It was definitely early 91 due to the lack of any prototype M900.

    Forgive me if my memory is incorrect, but I seem to recall in MTB Action a series of stills that were shot of JT (I think it was him) flatting on the Mammoth DH run. He laid the bike down and folded the rim.
    It was pretty sick what he (and others) could do on their "DH" bikes back then.

    not a vintage photo

    I pass through the Denver airport frequently and have always thought I should keep my eyes pealed for my pro mtb heros. Well on a recent trip on the way out to LA a shook hands with Adam Craig and on the way home ran into John Tomac. He was very friendly, funny thing, I was star struck and didnít have much to say. He did let me take his photo and I thought I would share. Sorry, it was a cell phone photo.

    Fantastic thread. Brings back many memories from my teen mtb racing days.
    Im surprised Raleigh hasnt brought out a JTR Replica frame, kinda like GT have done with there Zaskar.
    I dare say there would be a small select market (like myself) that would jump at the chance of owning a (new) JTR Replica frame.
    Keep the pics and info coming!!

    g'day guys

    I have just one very lame photo from when JT came to Australia to race the Downhill National Championships. I was so star struck i couldn't speak, I just walked up to him, turned & faced the camera & walked away. Luckily he new what I wanted & faced the camera. My 2 mates that took the picture gave such a hard time for not saying anything , they were laughing there heads off afterwards!

    regards
    Jak

    PS does anyone know where I can get a tomac jersey that Chain reaction cycles used to have in stock? http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=48626 they only have them in extra large & won't be getting anymore in

    Fantastic picture. Looks like he's chasing and mad after fixing a flat (spare tube and pump are gone).

    Where'd you find it?

    Cactus Cup, Mid 90s. Taken by yours truly. He was riding for Giant at the time.

    He was always one of my heroes.

    Probably him! I don't think those guys had mechanics then.

    edit: almost looks like that could be Jacquie P in the light blue shirt behind Tomac!

    So... this morning I had this super vivid dream, that I managed to track down and buy (from some guy on the runners world forum no less) a later blue tomac signature frame... probably something to do with me having a real job now and some disposable income...
    anyway it got me thinking, how hard is it to find the raleigh frames, how many were actually made and usually how much of a hole in the credit card do they make...?
    I can say I was not happy when I woke up and didn't really have one

    Oh man, takes me back to watching the NORBA races on pay tv. John Tomac, Ned Overend and Juli Furtado were awesome! Ok Ned is still killing it.

    I'm assuming you mean the Litespeed made Ti/Carbon frames?

    And a bunch from the October '93 MBA:









    One of these might NOT be a picture of John Tomac but rather than an ad featuring a former teammate of mine. He moved on to another sponsor after I broke both wrists in '92. I came across that ad in the October '93 MBA and thought it cool ...

    He was an animal on a bike and a great guy all around. My youngest sister had a crush on him.
    When we first formed the team, he was riding a gray Fat Chance with black Bullmoose bars that he broke as we were leaping down "Bald Face Hill" in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. I think he wound up in Colorado.

    I miss those guys - James, Lionel, Luis, Marco, Chris, Kelvin, Jeff and a few others.

    Sorry for the hijack ...

    This is a video from the 1994 NORBA Nationals at Big Bear. Tomac is the first rider in the video.



    He came into the weekend leading in both the National Cross Country and Downhill standings. He lost the XC title to Tinker Juarez the previous day, came back and won the National Downhill championship. Brian Lopes came in second, Myles Rockwell third.

    Didn't see these on the previous few pages, so I don't think these are a repost.

    Awesome photos !!! Especially the woods and the "air" photos.

    Just got a stack of MBA - nealy all from '89 through '95 and a few '96. I haven't yet started paging though them but I will of course keep an eye out for and scan in any new JT. Most are probably here but there might be a few that snuck by ...

    And I'm still looking for a December 1989 issue of Mountain & City Biking magazine if anyone knows of one or has and can scan an article on the Mongoose JT Sig.

    I have 'Kings of the Mountain II' on video...and there's footage of JT airing it out off the jump that's pictured above. So smooth, so much style. Everyone else just kinda gets through it.

    Uggghhhh!!!

    Now there is another thing I have to find for myself.

    I recently bought a VCR and a device to convert video to DVD using my laptop and have been converting all of my tapes to DVD. I have a few races that my wife taped off of TV - 90 Worlds,a number of Grunding and Jeep races in 91 and 92, Rebok etc. One of them I may need to bring to a professional as the tracking on my original recording must have wandered a bit.

    Cool stuff - very cool stuff.

    I like how Tomac rode bikes way big for the norm in those days. He could not care less for the fit police, it seems.

    I've noticed that too.

    His bikes were a 19" and he's 5'10".
    I'm 5'11" and prefer the 17.5" sized frame.

    To be honest, I don't think the fit police existed back then. Aside from an article here and there about space between the "boys" and the top tube, we all rode bikes that were probably bigger than anyone would have suggsted these days. Long top tubes, longer stems and short chainstays. My rule was if my feet could touch the ground, I was OK.

    I was surprised when I first saw the "bike is too big" and "not enough seat post showing" statements. But times change and so do perspectives.

    Of course most people were taller than me so I rode what I could buy and had little choice in the matter ...

    I am 5'9 but give the physical presence of 6ft. Between objective height and symbolic presence no bike fits right.

    Never saw a "Tomac" cardboard cutout before. Would have been a great gag to line a few dozen up along the slick singletrack through the woods at Mount Snow during a NORBA race and take photos of the big guys as they whipped by

    Then you would be responsible for breaking up my marriage to the woman I've been with for the last 31 years - after I bought it from you and she threw both the cardboard Tomac and me out the door!

    Good thing you didn't keep it ...
