    Old School Heros! (70+ Photos, 56k death)
    First Flight's slough of scans inspired me...but I decided to go a slightly different route.
    Here's the first batch of scans of our favorite pros from back in the day. Like old bikes, these racers all had a unique and memorable personality and style all their own.

    Enjoy!

    That was an awesome look back. In 92 I was 12, I had a huffy 10 speed "mountain bike." During the day I followed my buddies around on their treks and at night I fell asleep dreaming of having a bike out of the pages of Mountain Biking

    Nice shoes!
    Eric, what are you doing posting so many pictures of racers wearing those clown Sidis you were making fun of me for buying? Secret jealousy?

    Just kidding, these are great! I think I had most of these magazines back in the day but my dad threw them all out after I moved out. :madman: These scans made my day.

    That's cool. I love seeing pre-suspension bikes with pros on board. :thumbsup:

    An outstanding collection of John Ker (one of the nicest guys in the industry) photography. :thumbsup:

    I've got quite a few more mags set aside. There are fewer full page color photos in the older mags, but we'll see what I can come up with.

    Anything smaller or black & white and I'd be doing this forever. :(

    WOW!
    A blast from the past.
    Ned Overend was probably the coolest racer I met.
    Missy Giove probably the scariest :)
    Then when Tomac 'shocked' the Mtn Bike community by putting a rear disc on his ride, then breaking the downhill record on the Kamikaze at Mammoth Mtn.
    Oh yea, that was a great weekend at Mammoth

    every British "retro-fan" should be able to easily recognize Tim Gould! Or maybe you guys don't go back that far? ;)

    i have most of those mags if not all of them. i don't know if that's good or bad..;)

    Thats bad. Sell them on eBay. The one with tomac on the front can earn you 20 dollars.

    I like those ti onza bar ends
    You used to see those ti onzas on all the pros bikes. But I never saw them on any body elses bike, and I never saw them for sale. I want some for my collection. It's funny how people never put bar ends on their retro builds when they were required exuipment from 90-95 or so.

    speaking of rebadged Ritcheys. This picture caused a slight ruffle with a Fat fan a few years ago. :) (I recently chatted with Don about that bike. He wishes he still had it.)

    Eric, would you happen to have any Tinker photos available, preferably from the Klein era ?

    I've got many MBA magazines as well and I can also scan some photos...here's a little taster:

    I'm spent.

    I pretty much just scanned any and all full page color race photos I came across in the mag collection I have. I'm missing several MBA's and M&C Biking...so I didn't get all thats out there.

    If I was going to target any one rider or bike, there are so many photos it would take forever. So pretty much what you see above is what I've got.

    Sorry brotha.

    Pezzo was the queen of the many mountain bike beauties racing back then and now. Julie was/is still my favorite, i was too chicken or star struck to even try to speak with her back then. Great pics brings back some good memories. Thanks.
