    Hello, Im Othervoicez, Im interested in 90 mtb's

    Hello everyone.
    Im glad to post here, I am interested in 90's mtb's and the parts that we have come to
    call vintage.
    I own a 1998 Gt zaskar Le
    and now also a 2001 gt Idrive xcr 5000

    I however am wondering what has happened to all those parts we used
    in the mid to late nineties?
    I used tektro brake lever extensions
    (multi position bolt on RBP-202A)
    and I used to try to run any crazy colored tire I could find
    I have had so many I cant list them all
    the wild gripper by Michelin (green)
    and a few specialized tires in various colors

    Im wondering what happened top all these cool products?
    anyone remember brama bars?
    or the gt remake?
    (a single piece bar that had built in bar ends)

    Im interested in chatting with some of you
    I am also heavy into old school bmx ( freestyle)
    thus where the urge to liven up my mtb.
    any info on where to get any of these type of items would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks and I look forward to chatting with you all.

    If you survive your first 10 posts you've probably got what it takes.

    ha ha ha Im sure I can tough it out...
    oh and the what is it worth question....
    its worth $2 hahahaha
    everyone knows they are worth what ever they are worth to you.

    Im a admin over on bmx museum
    so I am no stranger to the forum life and I
    can also enjoy the fact of being a newb here
    it gives me a chance to see how it feels to some of our new guys.

    anyway....
    having the right bike???? well damn I have just that bike....
    the brand is called "MINE" ha ha
    I ride and build for myself and its always going to be different tastes so :P

    I have bought and sold tons and tons of parts
    over the years, and evil bay is one of those places
    but anyone who knows whats really up
    knows ebay sucks.. and if you look and spend the time
    there are so many more avenues you can pursue
    to find the type of stuff your looking for.
    so with that said where am I going to replenish my selection of
    colored tires and brake lever extensions?
    - glad to be here.
    thanks

    You can get some really sweet colored tires here: http://www.sweetskinztires.com/sweet.../products.aspx

    You're on your own with the lever extensions but if you find some I bet they will be cheap at least.

    those sweetskins are a abomination!

    nothing like a set of skinwall tires in
    various colors to set off a 90's rig.

    I have been looking at darwin product lever extensions
    so I may take that route
    I will prob post some pics of the different projects
    I have happening.
    I know those colored tires are out there
    but where?

    Perhaps the reason you haven't received a response is because you haven't asked a specific question. If you're looking for something specific and have stuff to trade, then post in the trade thread. If you're expecting the members here to offer up their stash that's probably not going to happen. If you really want the lever extensions, the Pauls ones turn up on ebay once in a while. As for colored tires, Kenda has been making 26" tires in colors for SE for their Retro series bikes, but I haven't checked with a dealer on availability.

    Do you not get that people here either don't know or don't care? Maybe if you ask three or four more times people will give you the answers you want to hear instead of what they are actually saying, right?

    Ebay, Craigslist, Post a want ad on MTBR. Retrobike.

    so anyone able to help out with some actual info?

    There you go.

    Same answers as earlier in this thread.I think you are now searching for another source that we all would like to find. Who knows, possibly there is another secret supply. Say a secret society that hoards and shares between themselves all the really, really colorful NOS VRC components. Throwing out nothing but an occasional annodized teaser (never blue or red but possibly an occasional gold), to the other VRC collectors.

    Learn the secret handshake and possibly they will have exactly what you seek. I would suggest that having VRC knowledge has nothing to do with how much access you have of the neat vintage annodized pieces.

    Welcome to VRC, good luck with your quest, whatever it may be.

    T
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2 or 3. Cunningham Racer.

    So....Um.....Daley rider? You bustin out lots of frame stands on this? You should go all the way and run brakeless. If your looking for colored tires you might want to check out retrobike.

    Are you running a bash guard too? Doing some grinding too?

    yes that is my daily rider
    and yes I am actually able to do most of the maneuvers
    I can pull off on a 20' on this as well, It took some time figuring out the balance points but after a few decent bails followed with some actual completions of some of the trick I just grew more confident - I am however no pro at all

    the bashgaurd helps with my foot not getting jammed up in the front sprocket
    while attempting mega spins.

    here is a pic
    of the brama bars I put on my gt zaskar

    and here are the lever extenders I used


    and here are a few of my 20' bikes

    here is my 87 haro master



    I have siince replaced the tires on her with the old tioga comp pool tires
    that look like this:



    here are some riding pics:
    framestand


    this is why i have the bashgaurds - no grinding
    the front sprocket will wreck havoc on your shoe doing this






    Im a cycling enthusiast I love all types of bikes
    and I come across lots of different things, Im just another guy
    but these bikes did not build themselves, I build my mtbs to the same standard
    and would have no problems helping other people do the same.

    I see. Maybe your megaspins differ from mine. Seems your feet should be nowhere near the sprocket or the cranks. I figure you'd be more worried about gashing your ankle and calves on those flip down gt pegs doing most of the other tricks. Nice jordans.

    Thanks,
    I found as I got older the fear set in and I can maybe pull
    off half of tricks I remember from bitd.
    If that even, I rode a pool last year and I was sad to
    admit it to myself but I was just not comfortable
    with it anymore.
    MTB riding gives the same joy of being on a bike
    but in more of a adult fashion, I just find myself enjoying the actual riding
    more.

    My mtb stuff is pale in the
    size compare to my BMX stash
    but over the years with the local connections I have made
    many many things have fallen into my hands
    I just have not had the desire to do up many mtb rides
    but with my apprichiation for them growing
    I have hopes that I can build them to my tastes
    and also give them my own personal touches

    thanks everyone I'm begining to like this place.
    I will take some pics of my gt xcr 5000 as well as the other
    parts I have around
    Thanks

    You are so right ghey colored Kleins and Fats are fruity to the max. But colored tires are in the top three. Except for black ones with tan sidewalls and white/creme Onza porqs of course.

    Here is a classic bad example of the use of colored tires:

    my thoughts are this :
    how can you say your all into vintage mtb's
    but not remember how it was? leads me to believe a good few of you are keyboard cowboys
    when was the last time you rode?
    I ride at least every other day and I will jump on a bmx anytime
    post some pics if you actually ride.

    There was a local boy racer who dyed his hair to match those pale green wildgripper tires that were the next great thing around 98-99.

    Well Dude,
    its just as I said "If the shoe fits"
    I ride all the time
    every day almost either mtb, flat or even the casual cruise
    but i actually ride
    I also know lots about bikes and where to get stuff
    and I never have a problem trying to help people
    but if I dodnt have to listen to pompous members
    who obviously dont know the details about the hobby they are in
    reading about bikes is one thing
    reading researching building and then riding is my thing
    and if someone comes onto a board
    they should not be chased off by some loudmouths that think they
    either know it all or any other way than theirs is wrong
    I stop in here sometimes but mostly Im either on some stretch of trial
    repairing what was done the night before or out buying stuff out of old bike stores

    so with all that said
    if you have a public forum
    why try to alienate the new guys?
    besides its only the reputation of the forum that is at stake

    thanks to those who actually have intelligent things to say
    as for friends - i can be one.

    I'm still can't figure out who you're trying to imply is the poseur or why you're so fired up. As a newbie, you're getting off easy I think.

    I'm also enjoying your modesty.

    To be fair, you did get a bit of a warning, early on in this thread, that there are folks who enjoy attacking posts like yours. I've already said my peace on the nature of these attacks and choose to vote with my keystrokes (i.e. I don't post a lot over here)

    I can't answer that question for anyone but myself. Personally I enjoy it.

    Tough brotherly love. Trial by fire. Its the internet...if you're going to put yourself out there on a public forum...be prepared for some criticism with what you build or like or what you think you know....there will be other people out there than know more, have more and do it better.

    If you're sensitive or have poor (online) social communication skills...you might have a rough go. If you can roll with the punches and give it back without sounding like a butt hurt 5th grader, you'll probably be ok. Bullies are everywhere. Such a big cruel world.

    Here we go. Anyone recall when I became mod, and the sky was falling?

    Still up there.

    OV (OP), If you're having fun? Keep at it, some folks like the abuse, no idea why. If you don't like it, don't respond.

    That's the beauty of communication, one can choose to interact, or not, particularly when awkward silence can't be heard, and some conversations come and go for months.

    Glad you enjoy bikes. I'm glad you do.

    So just what do those othervoicez say to you?

    Glad you ride a bmx bike everyday.

    Glad you came here to sweet talk us out of the colored tires we are all hoarding, so what do you say?

    Did you ever think you came to the wrong place?

    Show us your razor-scooter pictures too, and I'll shut my face.



    All in good fun...you left a door open I had to walk through!

    I was the only bidder on this Haro at my local police bike auction--got it for ten bucks. It was dirty, had rotten tires and a bad saddle. Meanwhile, people were engaged in bidding wars over Huffy beach cruisers and full-suspension Magnas...

    Matt,
    first off congrats on the great find,
    and great job on the restoration
    it looks very nice.

    If possible I would like to see some up close pics of the forks.
    the chrome set on the extreme I scored, look very similar to the forks on
    my '87 haro master in the style of the dropouts,
    so I figured that they were stock, but I believe now to be mistaken.

    you have a fantastic looking bike there
    im impressed.
    thanks for posting this.

    long ago stopped being bike-focused and started being more person-focused.
    so grab some popcorn, poke the sleeping bear with a stick and join in.

    OV; there WAS a company that made coloured tires back in the 90's, but they didn't do very well, there might be someone who's got a stash of them but I doubt it.
    and they were crap tires then, 20 years of aging can't have been good for the rubber compounds so don't bother...

    right now look at Halo tires in the UK, and Sweetskinz in the US.
    and IIRC umma gummas weren't technically "coloured" per se, they were grey by default because of the abnormally low carbon content in the rubber, which is why they wear out so quickly.

    coloured tires are making a comeback!
    rumpfy's ritchey singlehandedly encouraged fixie riders everywhere to start the colour-coordinated frame/tire thing!!
    FWIW I haven't found any correlation for the reappearance of adidas leather racing shoes on fixie riders... but I'm sure rumpfy's behind that too.

    I miss my spin carbon wheels. (pokey pokey poke poke)
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    Yes.

    That pic is from almost 10 years ago now. I was way ahead of the curve but have since moved on to the next cutting edge hip thing...which is already not matching my Adidas to the color of my bike....
    Right now I'm into matching my riding glasses to my bike jersey.

    Spin wheels RULE!

    Glad you came here to sweet talk us out of the colored tires we are all hoarding, so what do you say?

    Did you ever think you came to the wrong place?

    Show us your razor-scooter pictures too, and I'll shut my face.



    All in good fun...you left a door open I had to walk through!

    I don't think "colored" tires are ghey, or that this thread is terrible, but that bike has got to be the frutiest colored bike I have ever seen, and mustard is not even a fruit.

    Speaking of ghey bikes, my old KHS Montana Comp in that blue and pink color scheme runs a close second on my gaydar to your fruity mustard abomination.

    Thanks for the chuckles OTHERVOICEZ....

    SWEET ME TOO!!!!!
    I did some rides and stuff.
    Worked on one bike. Then another. Then I also finished this one bike...and I rode it after I finished building it.
    Then the last weekend I went on a bike ride on some trails with a buddy. He's also on MTBR.
    When I got home, I was pretty dirty, so I took a shower. Then I ate some food.
    That night I went to bed.
    Aaaaaaawesome.

    funny thing is I have found fantastic frames and all types of great parts in scrap yards
    I have a little system worked out with the guys that work at the place and they set aside lots of bikes so my buddies and I are able to go through them and see if there is anything worth while saving, toss those guys a few bucks and you will be amazed to see what they come up with, yes there is often tons of garbage but that is why they call the term
    "diamond in the rough"

    I really do wonder....
    how many of you guys actually ride?
    or do you all sit on your sofa
    or at your desks posting away talking about bikes????

    seriously though
    take a look at some of the scrap yards, and recycle stations in your area
    you may be glad you did.

    fixed it for you.
    some people ride, some people shop, some people rant on the internet about hating people who ride but don't shop or who collect and call it shopping, or hate people who shop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-wop-bam-boom.



    it IS the internet after all.

    If you have an extra LD stem of decent length (size matters) from your non Ebay sources, please let me know. Still seeking.

    Never ridden one before. Holding out for something nice, well built, and a little older like a Potts, Ibis, or Cunningham. I'll try anything once, and if I like it i'll do it again....

    Yea, yea. You got me. I do not take time to edit my messages. I see now for the first time ever there is even a spell check over by all those silly smiley faces .
    More importantly and relevant (sp?) to everything else in this wonderful thread: You reminded me of a thread from a few years ago. Can't remember the subject matter but the dude wrote in a deep south slang/text message type shorthand that was barely readable and hilarious to decifer. I know someone else on here has to remember it?

    ...that the OP is interested in 90 MTBs - that's a lot of bikes! I couldn't say that I myself am interested in more than about ten or fifteen...

    Kyle's quite the veteran these days, words of wisdom from his most recent post:

    2. If your bike came with a Freewheel cassette then you need to change it to a whole new freehub wheel.

    3. Order a SS kit w/tensioner, cog, lockring, spacers

    4. Get a SS specific chain

    5. get a Single Chainring for your crank/ if your bike has a lower end crankset with riveted bolts these will not come out (unless you very very carefully drill them out)not worth it, invest in a good crank thats bolted/this way you can use one chainring (ss specific/geared chainrings have ramps and pins and cause the chain to deraill. Get short chain ring bolts...6mm-8mm size depends on where your ordering them from.

    Good Starter gear : 32 Front / 18 Rear Cog,

    Hope this helps this is a very basic list of parts to get the job...and then of course your tools you will need as well.
    I find #1 particularly illuminating...

    I do believe the OP has had you all responding like puppets on a string...you have all been had, and voices is LHAO big time, as I am as well.

    But if he's been stringing us (me) along as TraumaARNP suggests, then well played. But I don't think thats it either. All entertaining to me though.

    I think that for your next thread you should pretend to be a gay Austrian television host.

    Aaaaaaawesome.

    Not much, if anything, but I would gladly trade you a NOS Girvin Flexstem, 1", or 1/8, in a choice of colors for the tee.

    whats up with that tensioner holding up the chain off the chain stays? Do you do some kind of jumping that requires it?

    I've seen those tensioners, think I've got a NOS one somewhere in the shop...Wasn't it designed to tighten up shifting or something like that? Creates a lot more front ring contact area

    Those were made by Kore, I think. They were among the first "DH" chainguides available for hardtails. This was some time around 1996, when the big brands started to push "freeride" and bikes got really lame.

    One of my favorite tires. I also just went through my last set within the last six months. Too bad they always dry rotted way before they wore out. Performance at one point was clearancing them for less than $10 each.

    Yes the chain tensioner is made by KORE
    it takes a bit of getting used to due to it causes a strange noise,
    but it is one of the products I found that actually works the way its intended to

    last item i bought from you was a (totally useless) black Halson fork - i didn't say anything 2u and i'm sure i left you positive feedback....that was around 5 years ago]

    Eight years ago? Sh!t, I don't remember eight days ago.

    I'm about getting good stuff cheap, and flipping bikes for profit to pay for the ones I keep.
