    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.

    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...

    Bump..

    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 tribute color scheme. It's from this shop: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bluelug/

    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?

    Awesome thread! Brings back memories of my old, neon yellow and silver Raleigh Elkhorn! Maybe I should dust it off and re-learn why Shimano stopped making Bio-Pace chainrings.

    Mid 90's Miyata frame. Paint job is original.

    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.
