I am 6'2 and gradually realized that I like 25" bikes though it took a few years. I bought my first road bike in 1994. It was a 58cm Trek 1100. The folks at the bike shop said it fit me and it was...

Finally got around to getting pics of my 85 Voyager I bought from bark_eater earlier this year. There are a few minor rust spots here and there but no dings. Not bad for a 35 year old bike. It came...

Nice bike but what is this balance thing you speak of. Buy high, sell low seems to be my way of doing things.

That is a beauty. Every bit of it. I don't normally like carbon forks on a steel bike (entirely based on looks) but it totally fits here. Tig welded bikes can be beautiful, too.

I love the look of lugs. I have for quite some time but until I started reading threads here, I never knew the name nervex, or, any lugs for that matter. It did not stop me from delighting in the...

At the time, it was just below Deore LX. I think it was after they phased out Deore DX as a mountain group.

Obviously, as your bikes get older, they need more time to recover between rides. I suggest buying two or three more vintage bikes to give each bike more rest between outings. It should help.

That was for sale (maybe still is?) and it was tempting. But, at the end of the day, it is such a terrific example of a well preserved original, it did not fit my needs. I would love to have an...

I guess we will either see a long term interest in bikes or we will see a lot of decent bikes for sale in a year. Either way can be a win.

Any idea if they take a standard one inch stem or a 21.1 bmx stem? I had an older mongoose that I loved but it took the 21.1 stem.

I have a 93 PDG R50. It definitely came with a rigid fork. That bike rides great. If the owner still has the original fork, it would be worth a look.

I have an 87 HardRock with u-brakes. This is the only bike I have had with them and I find them to be no problem to work on. Perhaps a tad bit more inconvenient but I can flip the bike upside down...

The 34.9 is the size of the tube it mounts on. If yours only says Deore on it and not Deore XT then this is not exactly the same part as yours. Mine is a higher end than the one that came on yours,...

I never really like the GT mountain bikes (not sure why) but I always loved the way their road bikes looked. I say do it. I don't think you will regret it.

At some point, many, many bikes ago it became more about having than using. I hope I never get to that point. However, I would like to go see a place like that.

This old Mongoose was one of my favorite bikes. It got stolen in 2016. I am still sad about that.

Looking at this thread and my old Mongoose has me thinking I need to convert my Diamond Back.
