Hello,

Been lurking here for a while, so time to get out of the shadows :D .

My name is Richard and I have been visiting retrobike for about a year or 2 now. All started when I had the plan to restore my old Voodoo racing bike in 97 catalog form.

Bought a house in the mean time so the project has been shoved on a shell, but now I'm setting up the workshop getting everything sorted to start the project finally.

Been riding since '95ish in various forms and have been on the bike ever since. Own quite a few bikes, but that just happens when you used to work in a bikeshop.

Lately have been riding a lot of downhill MTB and road. As long as it has two wheels it's all good just having fun with mates.

Cheers.

What a way to make me feel old, all my high tech bike stuyff from my college days are now considered "Retro" :) But I've recently started ridign again with my 3yo son. I'm getting my old MTB into ridable condition so we can do more riding together. We were mainly riding in the neighborhood so I've been using my road bike, but now we are venturing down some dirt roads and a proper MTB is needed :)

way to go! my top of the line - very strange bike "for those days" now is being used mainly to get me to work, but even after 18 years of age (the bike, not me) it still rocks, even in light trails...
and don't think it's only retro, think its a CLASSIC :)

Hi everyone, my names James, live in bolsover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire. I'm 19 years old and have been into my old bikes for about 2/3 years now. Current stable stands at

-97 Saracen hardtrax (the one I'm here to chat about, wil upload a current project thread tomorrow for it)
-unknown (yet) year Raleigh pursuit, fixied, sprayed, rebuilt, basically I bought I bike that I could rebuild completely and get me to work quick on
-old but not retro mongoose bmx (you know the beater for leaving outside the girlfriends and stuff)
-Scott nitrous sl 22, made into a free ride/downhill bike but needs a bit of tlc
-kona Cowan 07, dirt jump bike, few bits and pieces done to it
-GT series 2 road bike, quick alu/carbon thing for flying to work but not seeing much use ATM
-mongoose bmx needing work to be rideable
-redline proline pro bmx needing a bit of work, used to race this bike :D

And that's my lot. Back to the Saracen, love this thing, prised it from my dads hands a little while ago to ride to the gfs and stuff on, was wicked fun in the snow, used a few bits I've had lying around to make it better to ride, all will be revealed in my thread :D

(ow and btw, yes I've got the original purchase receipt and the 97 Saracen brochure ;) )
