    1990 Marin Team in some pretty sweet Neon Yellow/Purple with Neon Green forks. I also found a set of Neon Pink Grips.

    This stuff was all my dad's when he raced in the early 90's, he recent passed away, and I threw out some of this racing attire. A neon helmet, gloves, and some other old ratty clothing.

    The bike is more than enough Neon for me!

    I wonder if I can find Neon Spoke Nipples...

    Well you couldn't ask for a better matching saddle for that bike.

    The day I posted is the day I photographed them. Yes, they are in nice shape for about 1990/91 vintage. My wife has a set of the neon pink glasses and mine are the green. I wish I had a jersey to go with them.

    Yep, everything is stock 'cept the grips, tires, seat, and cable housings (although they could've been yellow for all i know )

    The grips are even Bio-Grip! Keepin' it period...

    Some good memories in this thread, I love that pink Ritchey and the old C-Dale almost didn't qualify until I saw the lime green fork. Let’s keep em coming enough with the shy embarrassed types.

    Probably already seen on another thread but now that I've finished it I thought it deserved to be here as well. The fork needed some love but now I hope to get it out in the coming days.

    This is my first post, and what better way to introduce myself than with something loud and garish: an '87 Shogun "Prairie Breaker (great name, guys) Team Issue."

    Cool bike. I remember seeing that one in the mags when I was a young teenager. There were some neat photos of it if I recall. Retail price on that one was $787! Total bargain with its Prestige and full XT. I really liked it but ended up getting an MB-1 instead. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, guys.

    MBA really hyped-up the Shogun for its then unusually stiff, short and steep geometry (40" wheelbase and a 20" top tube on a 71/73.5 18" frame, if I recall). It climbs like six-legged goat, even weighing in at just under 30 Lbs., but it can be a handful on steep downhills.

    The Salsa bar and stem offered some welcome breathing room compared to the stubby OEM Tioga T-Bone, not to mention the teenager-on-Viagra erection angle it added to the bike's profile.

    My old riding buddy is still running his purple/pink/turquoise Shogun "Pro," sans any real maintenance short of squirting half a can o' chain lube all over the frame, and it keeps on ticking.

    Neon Pink Fat Chance Team Comp



    Just picked up this 1988(?) Neon Pink Metallic Fat Chance Team Comp.
    Need to change a few things that aren't my style like the bar ends, pedals and seat...
    Otherwise it's all original down to the NOS Ground Control tires. I would've preferred a different color, but a sweet ride in this shape doesn't present itself too often.

    would you rock these on a group ride?

    There was a time when I sported these shades. They have even seen race action back in 91 or so at mammoth. Could you see yourself sporting these today. The sad part is they were not cheap back then.

    Rascal

    Here's my old Klein Rascal in all it's neon glory. It was a beautiful bike, but just too small for me so I sold it a couple years ago. I hope it's somewhere out there getting ridden and taken care of.

    Dirt Junkie - Just moved from Connecticut, Socal wildlife freaks me out.

    .

    Was a quote from NA1NSXR that I thought was funny so I made it a sticky in my signature. Sorry I have never been to Connecticut nor does any wildlife from So. Cal. freak me out.

    Those shades look very familiar I had a pair of pink Gators that were made out of foam and designed for Jet Skiing, I can't believe I just admitted that.

    that was my 1990 kestrel csx, weighed around 20 lbs, broke so often i convinced kestrel they should give me two frames so i would always have one to race. my last straw was 1992 mount snow i showed up with a custom painted blue/purple with corresponding blue/purple anodized grafton/ringle set up. the bike was blue with purple anodized on the left, and purple with blue on the right. it was sweet, and took a pretty penny to get together (two sets of everything ). i rode the bike once on a pre ride lap, and blew out the bb (3rd time). i was so pissed. i got it replaced, sold both framsets and bought a rhygin!

    Here is just one reason to always bring a camera with you on your rides. I unfortunately didn't have one on today's ride. I saw a guy on the trail with a 1996 Catamount that was custom painted in the nineties a lime green with purple ano. parts throughout. Wouldn't you know it one of the few times I have been out without a camera and I run into the Holy Grail in old school fluorescent mountain bikes.

    Here's a picture of mine (although I have yet to see it). It's my first neon bike, if you pardon the neon stickers on my first Litespeed mountain bike ca. 1992.

    Raleigh Heat, from '92 I think. Full Shimano 7-speed LX with Rapidfire shifters. This was almost the first bike I purchased on my own. I was riding a Trek 800 that my folks bought me, and put one of these on lawaway at the LBS. Then I got a job at the same shop, and my purchasing power increased significantly. I ended up getting a S-Works Steel instead.

    And yeah, it's bright orange, so it belongs in here.

    Shogun Team Issue flash back. I still ride mine but it looks nothing like yours. Mine is pretty beaten up.

    Wow, this thread is giving me some serious flashbacks. I worked in bike shops from 1987 throught 1993, so I saw a LOT of these bikes in the shops I was in. The thing that killed me were the DiaCompe brake levers that came in a few neon colors. I actually have a set of black ones on an old beater that I've got. I'm going to be digging through the scrapbook to see if I can come up with any shots of my own, but the bike that really comes to mind was my buddy's Kuwahara BMX bike (we're talking 1985 here) that was all neon green and white. He had a hard time deciding between that and the orange one. What WERE we thinking back then

    Awesome!

    Not sure if this qualifies as Neon. Loud and obnoxious, definitely. But, Neon? Well you be the judge...

    I thought this thread needed some love, I could think of nothing less when I saw this recently. I'll see if I can get some pics of my Trek950 soon.

    Nice rides guys, I remember that Alpinestar from back in the day. You cant mistake that frame design with way the rear triangle is shaped. That design makes sense for better ground clearance. Cool bike and nice job with the resto.

    Yeah, the captain position is a little big for me but workable. Good thing my boys are all on the large side. Plus, I also have a GT tandem that fits perfectly and I don't need ro think twice about damaging the paint.

    Wow after a several year seperation from mountainbiking I didn't realize how much I missed it. I love this forum the most out of all and this thread certainly brings back memories for sure. Nice rides guys! I can't wait to check out the rest of the bikes on here. Looks like I have some catching up to do. BTW what year is the red Klein? If my memory serves me right I would say a 1996, am I correct?

    That's no big deal it's just a little surface rust that's all. Nothing that a little old fashioned elbow grease and some steelwool won't fix.
