Been meaning to join for a while. But now I am embarking on a project to restore/make fit a bike for my wife that's a capable kid carrier. And can envisage needing some help!

Kona Lava Dome
Year - ?
Wheels - 2

It's got a mixed groupset and I'll be making some changes. I'm not intending to do a period correct restoration. But to get it practical and safe. With a hint of modern cool....we'll see shall we!

Hello everyone. I'm Jared form the United States. I've been mountain biking since the mid-nineties when I was in high school and have been in love with bikes forever.

My current bike is a retro-modern build. It consists of a 1996 Hardland FS-1000 full suspension frame outfitted with a Race Face/ XT drivetrain, Rockshox Recon fork, and Rockshox Deluxe (vintage NOS) rear shock. I ride and maintain this bike regularly and love every second of it.

I look forward to talking with you all and sharing the love for retro mountain biking.

Hi all. Jari here from the UK. Introduced to mountain biking by my brother in law with a visit to Glentress about 10 years ago... one of the most fun things I had done for years.

Bought myself a modern bike from edinburgh bike coop and been riding on and off since then.

Recently tried road after encouragement from a friend, and being fed up of roadies passing me when on road.

Hello everyone,

I'm James, from the UK originally and I started mountain biking when I was at school in about 1993. Bought a Kona Fire Mountain in 1995 (which my dad still has somewhere) and saved up for years to buy a Pro-Flex 957 in 1997. I recently dug the bike out of the basement and decided to get it trail-worthy again (after all I live in Utah now, only a couple of hours away from Moab - a childhood bike dream!). And soon after, realising that components for this bike aren't going to be so easy to get hold of, I found this forum.

Hey guys,

It's Julian here.

I've just got back into cycling due to everything that's going on in the world right now and not wanting to go to the gym...

I'm over the moon with a recent acquisition of a totally original 1997 Saracen Hardtrax and am loving the excuse to get out and have fun.

Looking forward to geeking-out on here with you all!

Good morning,

this spring I reanimated my GT LTS (1997) which I had stored in my basement for years. It's so much fun to ride again!
Researching for some spares I found this forum & here I am ;-)

greetings from Austria
Wolfgang

A couple of days ago I changed to 520ér pedals - now 13,65kg - not bad for that age! (my own setup 96)
