    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.

    Specialized neon ATB Cables.

    This is the only neon item I could find. I found these unused Specialized cables in a thrift store a few years ago.One day I might use them on a future bike build.

    Spotted this for sale on the side of the road, but didn't buy. I probably could have made some money selling the wheels. Oh well...

    Neon needs to make a comeback. I'm sad that my generation missed out on all of this.

    Sad but true it is something that had to be lived to get "it". Check out the initial post in this thread. Most missed the "bar ends" comment. Both neon and bar ends go hand in hand from the same era.

    This is a great thread. I had gotten seriously into mountain biking in '96, so while I never owned a decently neon bike, there were plenty of them at the races and parts around the shop when I started working there. Lots of memories!

    First Haro prototype rear suspension frame

    This was my first prototype I designed and built for Haro and there were a couple more until its final stage going to production. Then it became other manufactures exact same design like Iron Horse and Kona! that year this rear suspension I designed won two world downhill championships! more pictures of the other prototypes and the other productions soon to come.

    Titan Titanium mountain bike frame

    Even thought this frame only has some fluorescent decals it is a very rare Titanium frame I help design for Titan. I also designed a rear suspension frame for Titan but the company was bought out by a company from Taiwan and it never made it to production but I have pictures some where of it!

    This system of suspension was used by trek in 91 and the Iron Horse was a frame made by Verlichi in Italia

    But so cool prototype

    But so cool prototype
    Yes and it was copied by Trek, Iron Horse, Kona and every one else who saw it the first and second prototypes at the 1990 and 1991 show, they also saw it in the different magazines before the shows that the Derby corporation who own Haro at that time show it to, and the whole frame design was brought to the manufacture of Marzocchi suspension(which at that time was only motorcycle susp.) to have a shock built for it since there was no mt.bike shocks being manufactured yet! when it got there in Italy Haro said my design was shown to Verlichi who in turned made the frame for Haro, But the design was also given to Iron Horse and Kona!!! I have drawings of this design dating back to 1988 but I personally like other designs I had instead! but this Haro designed of mine was picked by Dean Bradley the product manager of Haro at that time because he liked the idea/design that allowed the suspension to be locked out under pedaling because of the main pivot location, thinking it was good for climbing! I liked my other designs allowing a more of controlled active suspension, because I was a motocrosser and believed in active suspension, which I designed and sold to a company called Crestonepeak bikes out of Colorado. They showed it around to different magazines who said it had " Too much travel" that it was not necessary lol! it only had 6"'s of travel in the rear but that was too much for 1990 I guess! that design I had the Suzuki linkage designed in to it kind of, and my around the axle pivot design that was used later by Trek and still being used today by them!

    Here's a Rock Hound I saw in Whistler two days ago. It is a little faded now, but that's what you get with those yellow and pink colors when they've been outside for a few decades!

    Diamond Back Ascent EX

    New to the forum. At the age of 44, I decided I wanted to get back into cycling, especially here around town. I found this old (1992?) Diamond Back on Craigslist for $75.00. A cyclo computer was included . I cleaned up the drivetrain, greased the wheel bearings, and I went kind of nuts on parts over the last two weeks:

    Drop bars
    mirror
    bar extender
    lights (required)
    Airzounds horn (loud!)
    shock absorbing seatpost
    Kenda K838 tire on front, the rear tire is on the way.

    I am glad I bought this instead of going to Walmart or Target for a bike. Even thought I lack experience and I know the technology has made quantum leaps over 20 years, I think this bike feels solid. With the drop bar and just a slick front tire my cruising speed has increased from 12 to 14 mph, up to 14 to 17 mph. I'm Happy.

    The Kenda K838 feels so much better that the knobby. The rear will be here next week. I can enter a sweeping 90 degree left turns at the traffic signal doing 16 or 17 mph, no braking even after it rains. The knobby was not giving me that confidence.

    Good choice! And welcome aboard I think you're on tbe right track with your attitude. It's about personal fun not the latest and greatest top of the line bike. Hey if you are going retro there is nothing better than a neon ride.

    Woody, Very interesting story and those are some great shots. I really like the green bike. I think if you post these at the end of this thread more people will see them.

    Not nearly as cool as some of the bikes here, but i picked this nearly mint 91 Trek 6000 up a few years back and its been a work in progress. She doesn't get the attention she deserves as i'm up to 27 bikes now and a girlfriend who's patience is wearing thin

    here's an old shot from basement cleanout number 1 last spring next to a lot of 3dv

    Happy Thanksgiving!!
    A resurrection of a thread that needs more contribution.
    I know there must be some more of these beloved bikes that need to be posted, so don't be bashful. I have something in the works that I am going to be springing on all of you very shortly. Via this thread she should fit in like a glove. I think you will be amazed with what I'm working on. I'm just giving everyone a chance to get their sunglasses because you're going to need them to view this beauty.
    edit: my plans fell through, couldn't purchase it quick enough. Someone else snagged it.

    Favorite thread!!!! Love the old neon bikes. At my campus there's a neon orange GT outpost that I really like. I really want to get some of those oakley razorblades sunglasses but unfortunately they never really got cheap as ebay will confirm.
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    Love it! That's a great color. Good to see it going in the woods, how does it ride? you did pretty good for 22 bucks, fenders alone are worth more than that!

    Good to hear. You should make a video of it, so hard to find videos of neat old bikes being rode in the woods.
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    Looking forward to it! Also could you please send me the original resolution of that pic where it's leaning against a tree, or a link to it? Thanks, it makes a great wallpaper.

    Yes, if you'd like, feel free to start up a vintage bike video thread or something like that. We love movies.

    Thanks!

    Saw this guy last week in park. Caught him today.
    Old Marin. It must have been a store window model as the photoed side of bike was
    faded. Still beautiful and all original.
    Shocking to see this in New Orleans.

    Very Cool!
    Pretty funny that one side was faded and the other not so much. It doesn't take long for that color to fade given direct sunlight. A month in the window would do it. I had a jet ski that was custom painted in a similar color. My buddy that I bought it from used it as his second ski for freestyle competition. So he painted it and then threw a ton of race stickers all over it. He used it for one season only on the race tour. All his practice was done on his other identical ski without custom paint. I bought the ski from him after the one tour. I immedeiately removed all the stickers and to my amazement it had seriously faded. So the entire four years I owned the ski you could see the outline of all the stickers he had put on it.

    This should be a topic in the retro section. I've seen many, innovative designs stolen by the bigger players the bike industry. The flip-side of that is the number of not-new or just plain bad ideas continues!

    I think it's pretty cool that some of the manufactures are offering neon options on new rides.
    INTENSE for one.

    1990s Neon colors & Bar Ends for bikes:
    The dominant youth clothing fad at the beginning of the 1990s was fluorescent or dark colors[citation needed]. Fluorescent clothing was associated with cool, summer themes like surfing and the beach. The five fluorescent colors were blue, green, orange, pink, and yellow.
    Fluorescent clothing was especially popular with teenage and pre-teen girls, but fluorescent t-shirts and shorts were also popular with boys. Fluorescent clothing included t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, shoelaces, hair scrunchies, and fanny packs. Hypercolor clothing, made of material which changes colors according to temperature, also came into fashion during the early 1990s. In 1991
    fluorescent colors were replaced by colors such as coral, hot pink, and turquoise. The popularity of bright colors declined through 1995. Hoop earrings were also a popular accessory for teenaged girls and women in the first years of the 1990s. Bar Ends for bikes also was all the rage. They were a fad that left the scene in the late 1990s. Which to some was not soon enough.

    How about posting up some old photos of these beloved rigs........

    Oh God, is that truly an '85?! IF so, that's one of the rarer ones, and one I have wanted for a decade.

    Niiiice!

    Yes sir it is. Basically unused. Unbelieveable condition. Found at an estate sale in Northern Idaho. I really like the ride of this one compared to the 83/84 biplane fork stumpies I've had. I wonder if it took a couple of years to fix the mistakes that Ritchie put into those first bikes he sold to Mike Sinyard?

    Picked this up a few weeks ago for the parts, but it's grown on me, so I'm going to sort it out and keep it. Left the seat on for the pic for S&Gs. Will have to dig out that old curmudgeon Rumphy's address and send it to him. Should be embarrasing when he opens it in front of his co-workers.
