Ok, imagine you just found an old oil lamp and unbelievably a cycle genie popped out and offered you the chance to make your wish come true and get a major bike company come back from beyond the grave and re-issue one thing...just one...what would you choose?

Would you think, oohh, oohh, a green zooka in a decent not too long length?

Ahh, I can have a 2008/ 1990 Attitude without the fatigued alu fears?

Mmm, at last a never ending supply of ground controls in umma gumma grey?

Or a new thing with an old twist?

Fire XCpro 2.1 with an amber wall?

M970 XTR 9spd Thumbies?

Go on...dream a little... :D

A re-issue anything would take away from 'the hunt,' and then the kill wouldn't be that rewarding.

Besides, you could always buy this time machine and go back and get whatever you wanted. Careful though, it says the crystals aren't functioning properly :wink:

Oh god.....this is a really hard decison to make, how many posts are we allowed!

Well, I think it'll have to be the Diamond Back Response Elite from roughly 1995. It was just above the Apex in the line up, and came with Manitous and a mix of LX and XT.

If DB read this, can you please run production again!!!

This has sort of happened in classic car circles already - companies have started producing reproduction early/collectible wheels from VW & Porsche. Original wheels worth up to £1000-a-corner can be had in repro form for as low as £100 per wheel. Doesn't seem to put off the purists though.... :wink:

So many but I wish Kona could turn back the clock to when they were still making decent bikes (around about the time you could still buy a new Hot and Hei Hei...).

Yeah I know Mike, Nike killed the trainer collector's world when they started re-issuing '95 Airmax's and dropped teh bottom out of the market we were all making loads from, but hey, it's just a fantasy... :D

As for time machines..shh, don't tell anyone, but i've got my own... :wink:

But I LOVE that guy's version. Better looking than mine too - all svelte and domestic looking. :D
