Hi all, thought it was time I intoduced myself here! Was pleasantly surprised to find RetroBike and be assured that despite what the magazines, & guys at the LBS suggest, it's OK not to ride something that appears to be the landing gear from a 747.
My current stable includes a '98 GT LTS4000, '96 Diamondback Axis, yes, the tri-colour steel one!, and a Wheeler 5900 ALU from about 1994, amongst some other bits. I'll post pics if A: there is some interest, and B: I can figure out how! In the meantime, I'll sit back and enjoy the rantings of like-minded folk.Thanks, Pete.

Sorry everyone, first ever post to a forum and have stuck it in the wrong spot.

Hi Peter, good to see another aussie on board! Would be great to see some shots of your rides. My second bike, back in 94/95 was a steel Wheeler, didn't turn heads but was quite a nice bike (can't say the same for the elastomer Zokes forks), raced it in both XC and DH for a year. Always wanted one of the tri-colour Axis', they're still one of my favourite hardtails!

Hey Pete, welcome.

As you'll see, quite an antipodean contingent on here.

It's a happy place.

Enjoy...

:D
