    Oh and I've been searching for one of those Mongoose jerseys like the one in the JT cardboard cutout above.

    Have they ever been for sale

    Great photos on your photobucket site Mik!

    I cant remember having seen a few of those before - but perhaps I just missed them.

    This is the frame that I harassed the Merlin guys about and the one that caused the UPS guy to pre-emptively tell me, my family and my neighbors whether he had anything for me whenever he came down my block in Brooklyn ...

    This is probably the best photo of that Merlin-built Mongoose frame I have come across:

    Amazingly there were two of those at the LBS in Edmonton when I was growing up - and not the steel rear end version.

    That was a cool bike. He was supposed to use the Tange Switchblade fork that year but opted to use the Yeti... which looked so cool on there.

    Did you say you found one of those frames?

    I was scanning some other stuff for a friend and saw this cover.

    It is probably burried somewhere in this thread but I figured I'd post it (again) anyway:

    Courtesy of 24pouces over on RB who scanned his 1992 catalogue for me.

    Never saw this catalogue before or any which featured the Raleigh John Tomac Signature frame and/or bike.

    If anyone has the '93 or '94 catalogue and can scan and send me a copy, I'd very much appreciate it. I don't think it appeared at all in their '91 catalogue.

    Here is the Merlin Ti version in all of its Sticker Accessory Kit glory with its namesake flying above:

    Ha! I have the sticker kit....but have never seen it applied to a bike.

    Early bike in the catalog pic with the XT build, Rolls saddle, and what appears to be a Tioga alloy post.

    Yeah I have one too just can't remember where I got it ...

    One of my gang had a Manitou and put them all over his bike. Until we humiliated him for putting such uncool non-sponsor stickers on his bike

    no, but he also didn't ride with that seat shown in the catalog which is a Turbo Special (?) or something like that. He always used a Flite on the Raleigh. That's just a catalog photo, doesn't look like one of John's actual bikes.

    Thanks for the new photos! I love those 1991 photos with the blue/green jersey and the Manitou fork. Gotta be the coolest race bike of all time for me.

    Couldn't agree with you more on the bike.
    I have a pair of those shorts and a similar though not the same jersey.
    I almost had one of those Try Lee feather helmet sticker kits but only "almost". Really like the various eagle and Stars n Stripes helmet designs he had.

    Awesome picture of James! I recall reading about his story in an early BIKE magazine, then when I moved to arizona I ended up meeting him, living down the street from him and riding with him all the time. The guy was insanely fast, insanely skilled and had the tiniest calves i have ever seen but he just got into mountain biking at the wrong time. If he got in today he would probably be in every ad, he was a marketing bonanza just wrong time frame to be capitalized up by marketers I guess.

    Hell of rider though. Lost track of him when he moved to Texas as I recall to sell RV's.

    Great vid no matter how many times I watch it.

    I don't think my copy of that has the Baywatch ending, though. Makes it MUCH more interesting.

    Here is my "receipt" for my 1989 Mongoose John Tomac Signature frame (Merlin full titanium). On the other side is my hand-written list of components on a piece of spiral paper.

    thanks for sharing! Love the receipt! Very cool. The pic behind the receipt, if I recall that particular bike looked fillet-brazed, no?

    And the April 1990 Mountain Biking cover, fork blue, white, purple rather than red, white, blue right? Matches his jersey. Always loved that bike with that fork on there.

    Yeah - I think that's just a steel bike painted silver much like the one in the '89 Mongoose catalogue.

    In that shot the "red" does look a little "mauve-ish" but in others it's clearly red - maybe there were more than one Yeti fork and painted a bit differently. I'm planning to imitate that build on mine.

    Never have seen the red shots.

    I love how you have the levers noted as "2 finger" as that was a big deal then. They finally did away with the old honker levers.

    I remember seeing prototype 2 finger levers (silver) on Johnny T's bike at the '88 Bear Valley National. I wanted them so bad. He also had prototype 7 speed shifters. I was in awe as a young teenager. At that point in time you could truly walk up to any of those guys and give them full interviews with no complaints.

    I was not a young teenager back then but was equally awed by these guys. As you said they were humble and actually fun to hang with and didn't seem to mind endless questions. Most were "regular" folk having fun - and that's one of the reasons it was so great.

    Can anyone find and post a pic of JT riding the ControlTech hardtail circa 1996-7?
    I've specifically asked JT for one, but he said he didn't have any.

    lol. How many times are you two going to go over this?

    It would be nice to get to the bottom of it. It definitely feels unresolved. Does DC know?

    It's sort of deoxyhemoglobin red ... That's what the Home Depot paint matching guy said.

    Per Scant:
    to the "experimental" all black alu frames in 94. that at the time were told as being made by control tech, but were actually made by chris herting of 3D (& previous yeti) fame.

    There are a few photos of him on the "Experimental" but seems it's not a CT

    You should re-take that photo with your C-26.

    Of course you will need to wear that style of "helmet" and should probably pick up a blond wig with long, flowing locks - unless you have those already

    Probably somewhere else in this thread but a recent arrival for me. Crappy iPhone photo but can scan if someone is interested in a better quality repro.

    I had John autograph this photo of him in his first MTB race. It appeared in a 1986 issue of the Fat Tire Flyer. The inscription reads, "Charlie, this is my first Mt. bike!"

    Awesome stuff. Keep it coming.

    And just to avoid possible confusion, all those shots are from 1990.

    Those scans remind me of sneaking off between shifts and going down to the Hudson News store. Once there I would look at the British magazines and the Spanish ones too. That issue made me late to work. Thanks for the flashback Doc.

    While I always preferred the Swedish glossies at Hudson news I might have put my eyes back in my head (momentarily) if I knew that magazine was in the rack.
