    The Rockshox / Tioga fork in the skinsuit pic looks a little scary, like it will snap at the crown at any given moment.

    Showa had a pretty good track record with forks - at least on motorcycles. They don't flex any more or less than other forks of the era but they do increase one's appreciation for Accutrax predictability

    Crested Butte criterium race, 1991. Or some other race from that weekend... only reason I know is from watching the fat tyre journal about a zillion times way back when and the lap of the course with Rishi Grewal and the little snippets at the intro. - the very end of the clip with Rishi is that spot, it goes from concrete, little lip/jump to grass with red wooden barriers on the left.
    At the time I thought there were so many cool bits, cool.. moves... i guess of bike handling. Still do now, nothing like the crazy stuff of today, but I still love that vid.

    What Mik Git said. 91' Crit part of FTBW sounds right. It was a stage race back then with a time trial over the Snodgrass trail starting from the Wa. gulch side, in town crit and a XC race. Ned actually ended up winning the overall in a dual with Rishi that played out in the XC after Ned flatted in the Crit. They just don't have races like they used too!

    World cup at Silverstar mtn

    here is another similar shitty scan of a vintage bc racing booklet. I am trying to hunt the owner of the the shot because he has 2 other better ones on slide film. The first lap had all three Tinker/Tomac/Ned in the air in different styles side by side in the same spot. Looking back it is the best mtb racing photo I have ever seen. Not sure who won that race but I remember Tinker when out for a pre ride the day before and got lost on the other side of Silverstar and they had to send search and rescue after dark to guide back. Still ripped it the next day. ha ha

    Thats the top of the pipeline descent at the Plymouth world cup in Devon UK.

    Im sure most of the riders said of that course it was one of the better courses during the world cup season for all the single track on the Devon moors and the bombhole sections.

    Im sure most of the riders said of that course it was one of the better courses during the world cup season for all the single track on the Devon moors and the bombhole sections.
    Do you have any photos of Tomac (or other Pros) on that course?
    Always great to see new old pics.

Still ripped it the next day. ha ha
    Would love to see those other photos. That's a rad shot. Ned with a Judy SL and not a Judy based FSX....interesting.

    Love these. I think the Scott rider is Gary Foord? (sp?) That last one of JT is rad and classic Tomac.

    Some neat 1991 footage here (Tomac still on drop bars):

    This one is probably already on here, sorry for repost if it is. Have two of these bikes in various stages of restoration, one bought new in 88. Resto mod for that one to ride and slowly gathering parts to original the other that is too small for me.

    Looking for a pair of black rm20 rims if anyone knows of any, thanks.

    I think he meant the guy who posted the pic is #12...Tomac is #10 for sure.

    I'd like to do a JT BMX build, but the 24" he raced set up as an MTB...big $ though.

    I have some jerseys of his that I bought at a Durango yardsale he had in early 90s. I fail at posting pics from my phone, probably better if I just say I'm uncomfortable posting fan boy parefenalia and keeping quiet that I didn't wash his tights before using them. Guess I can brag that I cornhole his chamois skid mark.
    Seriously, happy to trade Jerseys for a 1", 26" ridjid fork that can fit 3+" tires.

    Just two Giant jerseys from his yardsale.
    This brought back memories of barracuda selling steel yeti made frames for $50 when they started to fold. Should have bought one but I was just a FLC burnout at the time.

    Just from his yardsale. I bought them to ride in 93/94? and then sat around for years and now I ride in them again because I don't want to shop for clothing.

    Wow I never knew bout that Raleigh FS bike, or that Tomac raced it!

    So why did Tomac leave Raleigh? Was it a "I want loads of money", "we can't afford all this" or "Giant will pay me mega $$$".

    I also assume he got the shift from Giant for riding the Intense...

    The story is/was Raleigh wanted to get out of the racing business and focus on a broader audience. Translation - less out, more in.

    Tomac Poster Picture

    One of my oldest biking buddies from the first shop I worked in back in the day brought this gem in for me to hang in my current shop. It was a Pearl Izumi poster we had hanging in that original shop back in the day. When the shop closed in 1997/8, he snagged a bunch of the display stuff and stashed it in his folks basement. Doing some cleaning he came accross the treasure trove and miraculously this poster survived unscathed. As you can see from the bike boxes behind it, this thing is huge and printed on very thick glossy photo paper. I am super stoked!

    Looking for/WTB : Grove Innovations Assault Fork, Grove Innovation Hammerhead Stem or Hothead Bar Stem

    That is an AWESOME poster!!
    Never saw that and will have to add it to my list of "wants".

    Good on him for saving it and on you for putting it up.

    Gotta love him climbing in the big ring too! (Although I expect the photographer might have been leaning a little to the right to make it look steeper)

    I'll probably wear one of these or maybe one with yellow (maybe when he was with Giant) and if I catch up with him, get it autographed.

    That's cool, must be upstate NY near Saratoga lake or Seneca lake? Oh, Eric R blew up Tioga tension wheel yesterday at the Marin fat tire classic, it was a blast as always, but not so much for that poor wheel. Dig it

    Ahhh... Gotcha!
    I basically grew up in that bike shop (with JT).
    I only ask because I'm very familiar with that photo (I was probably up-next to hit that jump, lol). I probably have some other photos from this day in a shoebox somewhere.

    I only ask because I'm very familiar with that photo (I was probably up-next to hit that jump, lol). I probably have some other photos from this day in a shoebox somewhere.
    ya, i think i know who you are, but can't remember your name for the life of me (too much chemo destroyed my memory) i've rode mtn bikes with you way back, late 80's, early 90's, i had the tomac signature mongoose. You still riding?

    Absolutely still riding!
    I live here in the Front Range (Colorado) and ride almost every day.
    I raced BMX through college and DH, Slalom and 4-Cross after (CO local stuff mostly).
    JT obviously went on to have a "much better" cycling career than I did!

    good deal, I still ride pretty much every day too, just moved back to Owosso so your riding is better than mine! My brother lives in Parker and my nephew and his wife just moved to Fruita so i head out there each summer for some good rides.

    I just posted on my blog this story I wrote about John for a UK magazine in 1989. It included a lot of my photos of JT.

    Can't reach em on an 800mm bar, it's like a Jesus Christ pose on one already without the extensions! They also became a lot less useful when people switched from climbing to shuttling.
