Wassup from Sacramento, California!! Found this forum while researching a Specialized FSR DH on eBay. I bought the bike and figured I'd stick around here to see what's going on.... So... What's going on?

i started with MTB in the early 90's passing through some cool bikes i'll post here, I ended, and I use 'til today a '93 Cannondale Super V 1000 and it stills mantain the original suspensions, but components are a little different from the original, I'm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and here is a little bit difficult to get some old parts in a good shape.

original blue/silver painting
cranckset Deore LX Black with chainrings Curve 44 - 32 - 22 tooth
Front derrailleur LX Black
(booth series 563)

V-brakes XTR '95
(970 Series)
XTR sprockets (series 900)
ritchey rims

Hiya,
found this site while googling for Mint Sauce cartoons.
I started mountain biking in 1989 after my parents bought me a secondhand Raleigh Memphis.
Mountain biked all through my college/uni years then found myself with no storage space so my bike was shoved into my parents garage where it stayed until a few months back.
Hoping to get back into mountain biking as i need to loose my beer belly. :lol:

Remember, it's not a beer belly, it's a fuel tank for a incredible seducing machine :P (that's what my sister always said) anyways, welcome back to MTB, and 'bout your bike, stills the raleigh?

I remember starting in MTB seeing John Tomac with one :)

be welcome, I'm a cannondale fan and also a trek fan, i sold a few months ago a 1994 trek 2100 (aluminum/carbon) road :) trek was the "god" of bikes at my start in MTB in Brazil, later I knew a lot o' good bikes, including KHS Team, Caloi (brazilian brand) andes team (aluminum frame, full XTR (94) and the most beautiful suspension fork ever made, the Rock Shox Mag 21 SL.
