    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

    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!
