I have a few vintage MTBs. Right now my favourite one is my MIELE 1980s era one. I converted it to V-brakes with Techtro dropbar and interrupter brake levers hooked up to older Shimano V-brake calipers. Braking is excellent. This is my go to bike for running errands and for winter riding.




Cheers

Who knows!? I think this might have been when they started giving you a rear derailleur that was a step up from the rest of the group. This had an XT rear der, LX everything else, Avid V brakes, and Specialized crank. That stuff was so good, I guess there was no real need for all XT unless you had extra money to spend. The only thing that wasn’t worth riding on that bike was the fork. It just had a stack of elastomer bumpers in it, and rode like a pogo stick. Mine was quickly replaced with a coil/oil Marzocchi Bomber.

I had a really nice Specialized Rock hopper MTB given to me because the owner had locked it to a metal shelving unit (U-lock not Krytonite) and decided that the bike hadn't been used for a long time, and decided to put the bike and the shelving unit at the curb for garbage pickup. I asked if it was there for garbage and he said yes it was and that I could have it. It took me three minutes with a cord Dremel tool with a thick cut-off disc to get through the lock. The bike was in fantastic shape just needing air in the tires and a cleaning.

As found.












Some days you're jus in the right place at the right time. Another 15 minutes and this bike would have been in the garbage truck.

1984 Dawes Ranger Resto-Mod: In-Process

I actually took this photo for another thread, but it fits this one as well. I've gone as far as I can on this until Spring comes and I can do my shakedown rides. Call it a "rideable mockup":


I did a 1x10 conversion on it, and I actually had to buy extra links for the new chain, as it wasn't long enough to fit this wheelbase! I mounted a porteur-style handlebar upside-down on the stock slingshot stem. The beat-up headlight in the photo is just a place holder until I find something more suitable. The fenders need adjustment, of course, and I will probably have to make a new bracket for the front. It will get bags front and rear, with a saddle-mounted bag support out back. I won't be mounting racks on this bike - those compound curve wooden fenders need to be visible. Kind of a stylish, all-roads city bike, I guess.

Ha, this is the proper thread. I just posted in a different thread but it fits better here. 🙂

You'd better get those fenders adjusted Mister. One of my pet peeves. All kidding aside. that's a great looking bike, with touches that make one think of yesteryears classics.
A question for you, are those wood fenders made from bamboo? Also, I imagine the extra links were due to the larger size of the rear ten speed cog?
As an aside, will you put a Red led flasher on the rear? I try to not go anywhere now days without one. I always note how far back I am when I see one. IMO, they make you way more visible day or night.

That's a bad angle to show the fenders. These are from Woody's Fenders up in Bend, Oregon. They are cherry wood with bloodwood and wenge center stripe. Here's an image from the website:



The only difference with mine is I ordered them with a satin varnish, rather than gloss.

As for the chain, the bike came to me with period Deore XT, 3 x 7 with a 34 tooth low gear. So it's not the gears, it's the wheelbase that necessitates the extra links.

+1 Total agreement on the light program.

I run 2 front, 3 rear, camera's front and rear + GPS to prove whatever happens, 24/7.

Most cases fail for lack of proof and truth, video and GPS can help provide both.

Fortunately haven't needed any of it yet, knock on wood.

Hadn't thought about cameras. Are there any you recommend?

The home owner is a septuagenarian widow with no kids, and her husband was in his 90's. It has this sticker on it, which makes me think maybe it was included in a lot that was purchased at auction from this moving/storage company. Or it could just mean it was moved there by said moving/storage company. I know they moved a lot of stuff in there from California when they bought the house in 2013.
In short, I don't know.

I have older Cycliq 6 and 12, they are spendy I had one go bad that REI took care of but they don't sell them anymore.

They have been updated/graded so who knows, mine are doing fine, to be honest, I have never needed to up/downloaded anything off them and the lights in them work great.

I think the GPS tracking is the most important thing, if the driver lies, the GPS can prove so, direction of travel, speed and position, with video to back it up, you have a much more solid case, claim, defense.

This is why you see many commercial vehicles with lights on all the time, CYA so they can say "our lights were on, you should have seen us", if you make it a draw it becomes moot.

I've seen 2 articles that the GPS saved the day, one for the bike damage and one for the injury where the insurance company stonewalled, denied the cyclist and painted them as irresponsible for lack of insurance as they didn't own a car.

Deep pockets, army's of lawyers and total disregard for doing the right thing, they get away with it all the time.

I had to look closer, lol, I could tell something was “off”. Yours has a Headshok, but mine doesn’t, and your forks are straight, while mine have a definite sweep to them, more like a touring bike. 🙂 But this is what I wanted, no pesky suspension, to steal your energy. 😁😉
Plus you know, these frames were based on full-suspension, in the early days of it, so over-built, and strong enough to carry anything. 👍

Wow, the pepperoni fork! I just had another flashback! How many forks/frames can you think of that were named after foods?

That’s nice! The pepperoni thing might not have stuck in my head if not for the clever way they stacked those letters. Cannondale was always brilliant at making their stuff stand out, especially to teenage boys lurking in bike shops!

But any other food labels? Maybe “wishbone” seatstays? Maybe a beef reference on a frame somewhere? I think the pepperoni fork takes the cake!

Sorry!

It's a 1984 Stumpjumper sport:
Bars: Soma Osprey (so far so good)
Stem: NOS Avenir 1" riser
Headset: Dura Ace EX headset (came with the frame, thankfully along with the proprietary headset wrench)
Brakes: Paul Motolites (I got a "good" deal on them)
Wheels: Deore hubs, house brand rims from bicycle wheel warehouse (exceeded expectations for a budget buy!)
Crankset: "vintage" 300LX takeoffs
Microshift advent 1x9 group
Brooks C19
Vittoria peyote 2.1" tires

I just did my first proper ride on it - 30 miles of hilly mixed trails, gravel roads and pavement and it did pretty well! It rides like you would expect of a medium sized boat, and having only ridden traditional road bikes it definitely took some adjustment. Honestly I could see myself touring or bikepacking on it very comfortably. The Advent groupset exceeds expectations, my only disappointment is that I couldn't pair it with my old suntour power-rachets (though I believe microshift makes a friction-able thumbie)

1983 Mountain Goat Cycles Escape Goat

My '83 Mountain Goat. The Escape was the less spendy model in the lineup, built with round frame tubes rather than the Phil Wood ovalized top and down tubes on the Deluxe as well as unfiled filets. The fork is also off-the-shelf rather than the custom Henry James crowned version. The cockpit features a Jeff Lindsay built, nickel plated bar/stem combo.

I'd post a better pic (is there a "post your c+v in front of a sex shop" thread?), unfortunately it's currently having a sleepover at the LBS awaiting brake/shift cable replacements, but just decided to join the rigid 26 mtb club with a Schwinn KOM.




Gonna grab a red bottle cage while it's there. And then get silly and get mismatched red/blue cable housings... and mismatched Panaracer Fire XC 26s in red/blue....

Well, once you’re red, white, & blue, you might as well just see where it goes. 🤔😁😉

I picked up the same model and color Rockhopper recently for a great price in the off-season. I think I’m the second owner in it. PO just replaced the handlebar with a fairly high riser. Not sure if I’ll end up keeping this bike yet, partly because I haven’t risen it this winter to get a feel for it. I really like the teal Rockhopper behind it, which I’ve had for a few years, but it’s in much rougher shape. (Sorry about the horrible photo—I just moved and all my bikes and bike projects are jammed in a small room.)
