    10 years, that's it? Still have 2 of my 20+ year old bikes going.

    Current ride is a '98 Ellsworth Truth FS that I slowly improve over the years with a mix-match of components. Nothing pretty about it but it works awesome and I love it.

    My wife rides my '96/97 Voodoo Hoodoo HT converted over to more of a street bike with slicks and a rigid fork. Light, very easy roll.

    As my son grows, he's moved up from his 20" BMX to a 26" bike we're building together for him based on my wife's old '02 Specialized Hard Rock frame.

    My 1995 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 that I purchased new in January of 1996. First pic is how I rode it up until last year when I finally upgraded to a front shock, better brakes and new tires. Second pic is how it looks today.....

    Here is our fleet is 26'ers.


    2000 Klein Adroit Pro. Work in progress. Built up with stuff from my parts pile. Got the frame 2 years ago.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-05-12.36.18-custom-.jpg
    Rode this last week while on a trip. Early 2000's Montague CX folder. Got this summer of 2017. My travel bike. I ride this on the beach, so its a bit rusty.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-07-11.36.06-custom-.jpg
    2003? Marin Wolf Ridge. Rode this today. Another parts-box build from frame. I've had it a few years. Ran it single speed for awhile.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-11.01.53-custom-.jpg
    The stumpy gets a lot of use. Had it for about 18 months. 2007 or 2008 or so.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-11.02.27-custom-.jpg
    The XC is used a little. Really nice bike. Very clean condition. Picked it up recently. 2005-ish?
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.50.31-custom-.jpg
    Future project Indy Fab Deluxe frame. Got this last year. 2003 or so
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.51.53-custom-.jpg
    Raleigh Technium Peak, early 1990s. Has crack in frame near seat clamp. Donated many parts to the Klein. Future art project I guess.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.55.22-custom-.jpg
    Trek Liquid. Very nice bike. Another recent addition. 2005 I think

    Ugh. You have me beat. I have a shot-peened 2001 Truth that I'm riding. I love the bike! Just last week I took out a demo Pivot xc bike ($6,000). It was nice for sure, but all I could think about was how I didn't really notice any of the innovations over the past 17 years, aside from the position change....On my bike, I have a ridiculous amount of spacers, to help improve my position on the bike.

    Finished up my '97 Bontrager Privateer Comp XT yesterday.

    New Bontrager tires, Bontrager Mustang rims, cables, housings, ferules, head set, saddle (Brooks Special w/copper rivets) and rebuilt Judy XC.

    Freshly sandblasted and powder coated in original color. New decals.

    Still looking for a few things.

    After 20 years of use, abuse and neglect it was due for a freshening up. Hopefully it's good for another 20 years.

    Diamond Back Topanga (1993 IIRC). Purchased from a mechanic friend of mine and built up into a commuter.

    1996 Gary Fisher XCaliber. I'm sure this picture is over 10 years old. The Judy XC's elastomers are toast and I'd like to replace the fork with an 80mm alternative. If you'd like to sell me one let me know.
    Seeking a 90's or 00s 80mm 26" suspension fork.

    My repainted Decathlon 9.1 from 2007

    Great ride, despite the years. 150mm Sektor air up front and upgraded X-fusion shock.

    Thought I'd add my bikes to the thread:
    My 2004ish Specialized Hard Rock Pro. I love this bike! Forgive the bags but I turned this into my town bike when I was stationed in Germany:


    My current project, Scott FX-25:


    And my wifes Seven. I wish this bike fit me or I'd appropriate it from her:

    Just got this old C-dale refurbished. New 7.0 rear, 5.0 front derailleurs, new-old-stock-rear-wheel I had in storage, 2.2 rear tire that is just a hair too wide.

    Rode it on its first trail ride in 14 years yesterday. It, and I, did well!

    Do wish it had disc brakes, though. Old v-brakes are hell on the fore-arms when going hard.



    I wonder why I'm listed as 2005 - I was using the site the most from 1999 to 2003.

    I've since changed the stem and handlebars to 780 wide which I enjoy much more.

    GammaDriver - mine is the same. I was on here way back about the same time however mine shows 2005 as well. Wonder if they had a crash or some virus reset.

    Just resurrected an old thread. Picked up a 2000 Specialized FSR for $100 yesterday. Didn't realize it would be a pain to find parts but nontheless Im excited. Looking forward to working on it.

    Everybody- LOTS of GORGEOUS bikes! This is a cool thread.

    slowfashow- I have an old 2000 Enduro. Let me know if you need any parts. Not sure how much of the Enduro is the same as the FSR but have new linkage bolts. If you're trying to keep it original, I still have the Hayes brakes, Stout hubs, cranks, etc. Well, everything.
    Pic shown with some new stuff I put on , but still have the orig stuff. 26ers over 10 years old-specialized-enduro-expert-fsr.jpg

    EDIT- Two seat posts cut to two different lengths because that's what we had to do back then to change a bike from xc to downhill. Two seatposts and stems of different lengths. Remember? :-)

    Having completed 30K kilometres (at the very least - 2 years of data are missing) on my 2009 Mojo I say it is a bike to recommend.

    Like old Chevy's: Mojo's don'tr die - they just go faster.

    Only thing from new is the XT crank. Everything else, worn out, replaced.

    It's a beauty to look at, that's for sure!

    But, correct me if I'm wrong, I heard these are notoriously bad at climbing.

    In any case, this is definitely a collectors item.

    Score!

    Many old-school FS rigs were 'bad' at climbing and sprinting, but such was life. Treat them nice, use them as soft-riding single-track Zen-trail bikes, and the owner will remain happy. Treat them as a full modern FS rig, and the owner won't be happy.

    4th ride in 14 years (since i put it into storage)

    26ers over 10 years old-img_0309.jpg

    26ers over 10 years old-img_0341.jpg

    A 'good' bike is a 'good' bike, and - if used within certain parameters - it doesn't take much to create a very adept 'gravel' road bike out of a 26" hardtail. Gravel bikes don't need to be much more than a 26" - 8-speed in this case with a triple front ring - unless one is racing. Me - I'm not racing gravel routes.

    But... here's the thing... the couple of 'sand' roads I took would have been more of a challenge on a modern gravel-bike/cyclo-cross bike with their narrow tires. My 'gravel bike' 26"er allowed me to explore and cycle more of the local terrain. How do I know this? Well, i don't - but I'm extrapolating the data from Strava segments where I was up against actual gravel-bikes (so proclaimed, and sometimes pictured, on other's rides that led to KOM ratings). Sure, those gravel bikes rode the hard-pack sand/gravel roads, but none are showing up on well maintained, long hard-pack 'sand' roads.

    You do a fine job keeping all thes bikes.
    You might know where to buy 26x2.5 - 2.4 - 2.3 real tubeless or UST (not tubeless ready). I use CushCore inserts and on long tours tubeless ready loose air from the rubbing of the inserts against the sidewall af the TR tires. On real tubeless no such thing.

    A 1991 Fuji Team Professional. Prestige tubing, originally a ridgid which I ran with a Softride suspension stem for many years, then added the fork about 10 years ago. Has a 1Ē steerer, originally Suntour XC Pro 7 spd components. I still use that Suntour triple 110 crank on my tourer. I changed out to cobbled together 9 speed stuff plus V brakes at some point. As it wasnít designed for any suspension fork, itís a tad slow in the single track. I might put a drop bar on this and make it a gravel bike.

    '99 1x1

    Just moved to southeast KS from Tucson, and wanted a bike that would be good for cruising town, for riding gravel to go fishing or swimming in the summers, and for more fun on the non-mountainous yet still very sweet trails around here. I built my '99 Surly 1x1 up like this a few years ago for SSAZ, and am pretty pumped to be going back to it.

    As wrong as it may be, I still really like the range the 3-chainrings give me since I converted the hard-tail over to be a gravel-riding bike. Gravel-riding does seem to often include paved roads, so having that extra range that the big ring gives is a bonus to me. Having the smallest ring is nice to then ride hard-pack single-track on.

    I realize that modern bikes have 11 speed cassettes with broad ranges, so there could be a range for everything, but I haven't put that to the test by riding one yet.

    New Shimano 1x12 is 508% gear range.

    If you do a 3x10 old school 20/32/44 x 11-36 714% gear range.

    So yeah...3x10 would be incredibly versatile for any grade...up OR down.

    Thank you. I knew there was math that I could have done to see the ranges, but was too ... busy, yeah - that's it - I was 'busy' here at work, to do it. :-)

    Ok then, again - thanks. I'll remember your encouraging post and math (why do the English pluralize it to 'maths'?) the next time I'm switching rings on it.

    By English, do you mean the Brits'? In the States, we say math. That said, the plural maths could be a shortened version of mathematics.

    As for 3 chainrings, got 2 bikes that still have the 3. The big rings are never actually used though... There's nothing wrong with 1x, 2x or 3x... it's all the rider's preference and need based on the terrain being rolled over.

    Yeah, and I suppose you could put a 11-42 tooth rear cassette on or some size like that and get HUGE range! Just have to be careful not to cross-chain because it might be impossible to get a chain-length that would work for each extreme. But most people on 3x are used to preventing cross-chaining anyway.

    But personally, I was fine with 3x and wouldn't bother trying to change unless several other parts were worn out. Or just bored to death and had "upgrade-idis".
    Have fun!

    Quoting myself only to show the picture again and tell more about it. I got it about 2 weeks ago. Because of the rain having all of the local riding trails closed, and because I have been customizing it and giving the old bike some TLC during that time, today was my first chance to do a test ride on it. I must say I have fallen in love with this bike. It is my first FS, having been riding hardtails for a very long time.

    I bought it on fleabay. The seller represented it honestly, and I knew I was getting an old bike with some miles on it. Because I like tinkering with stuff, and I got it at a good price, I didn't mind buying something that old.

    To compare things to automobiles, my previous Cannondale F7 handled like my wife's Civic. Pretty good. This Mount Vision handles like the Miata I used to own. It just eats up the tight twisty's. It is very, very agile. Oh, and 5-6 lb lighter than my F7 was.

    Having not ridden most of the winter because of the rain keeping the trails closed, I have become way out of shape. And I didn't want to take it on a long and serious ride for the first one. Turns out it only needed a few minor adjustments. Having warmed up myself today while having the bike prove itself, I will take it on a real ride tomorrow. I'm pretty certain I will be even more in love with this old bike after tomorrow's ride.

    I am sold on FS bikes. I doubt I will ever go back to a hardtail. In addition to my old butt not being jarred to death, that back wheel stays on the ground much better, and hence my control of the bike stays in check, better. I don't care if I have to eventually buy a rebuild kit for the rear shock, and spend some time on it. I like doing stuff like that. Goodbye from me, hardtails.

    As for 3 chainrings, got 2 bikes that still have the 3. The big rings are never actually used though... There's nothing wrong with 1x,2x or 2x... it's all the rider's preference and need based on the terrain being rolled over.
    In the States they speak a dialect not a language. No offence, I like the sound of John Wayne.
    I also have 3 chainrings on 3 bikes and use all 3, granny for uphill and big one for going fast. 11-40.

    But personally, I was fine with 3x and wouldn't bother trying to change unless several other parts were worn out. Or just bored to death and had "upgrade-idis".
    I have 11-40 and 22-32-44 on my Mojo and no problems with chain. Mostly use the middle ring, but on climbs between 25 and 30 degrees I use the granny.
    Of course I do not put the 44 ring on the 40 as well as I see no reason to combine the granny with the 11.
