Its great that you have those pictures to show everyone because this is the start of it all for the sport of mountain biking. I was riding my racing bike off-road and only dreaming of such high tech bikes.
Thanks alot for having the vision.

Little known aspect of mountain bike development. Before you could race the bikes, you had to have a reason to own them.

One of the attractions back in the day was he fact that you could go places where you knew no one was going to come along and bother you, no matter what you were doing.

A frisbee was essential on those rides. You could use it to throw and catch, or you could turn it over for a convenient surface for other purposes.

Jack Witmer, who bought CBR in the early '80s, is a fun guy to hang with.

Do the math.
