Hey guys. Good to be here. I think I needed this place to continue my passion from the childhood.

Lately I bought a nice 1992 Panasonic MC Pro, which is presented in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=372929

Im 34 years old, I live in Cracow, Poland.
I work as an editor/journalist. I'm a football fan, and a very average right footed left back.
I travel a lot. Usually with the one of my retro cars, which I'm collecting. There are six Peugeots 205 in my garage at the moment. ( High five Cybernck 8) )
Used to be a cross country rider, but it was a long, long time ago. I almost forgot...

Hi all,
My name is Steve from Shropshire and I found you via google when I was searching for a rear swing arm for my Raleigh M-Trax 400 circa 1997 full suspension MTB.
I am looking for a M-Trax 450 which has the disc mounts as the 400 only has V posts.
I bought this little baby new in 1997 and kept her in mint condition and original except for the pedals and bars, she has Magura Hs 33 but would love to change over to disc.

Hi

Found this place via Google. Great find.

Brief intro. Grew up in the North East of England. First bike was a blue and yellow Raleigh Burner. Moved to North Yorkshire Early 80's. Had a few more BMX. Super Tuff and Ultra Burners. Pals had Mongoose and Haro. Always very envious.
Moved onto roadbikes early teens. Raleigh Pursuit and then Banana. Transport bikes for messing around on & visiting pals. Great memories of ragging them down the forest drives of Dalby.

Banana was stolen in first year at Uni. Next bike was a 1992 Marin Bear Valley that i took in exchange for an old surfboard. I loved the matt zolatone paint when everything else was neon pink and dayglo.

Couple of mates were very serious about mountain biking. One was a pro-elite racer and through seeing their bikes i realised that although my Bear Valley looked like a sleek stealth bomber, it probably weighed as much as one too. I still loved it. Then it was stolen and my interest was on other sports,hobbies.

Fast forward 20 odd years to this summer. Standing outside a pub in London, a guy pulls up on my Bear Valley. It wasn't mine. Mine had a massive ding in the top tube where it fell down some steps at uni. A quick look on ebay and there were several at 30quid or so. 30 quid! I'm sure i got 450 or so on insurance when mine was nicked in 1995. The search was on. Cheap old park anywhere retrobike here i come.

That's how i found this place.

And you guys got me thinking. Matt black was cool in 1992 but now everything is matt black. My old stealth bomber now looks like some crap halfords commuter hybrid.

Some of your bikes on here convinced me i didn't actually want another Bear Valley.

So i spent a few weeks watchng ebay and reading old catalogues and had narrowed down my search.

At the end of august i placed a bid on an old snotter that was being sold for spares or repair.

And won it.

I feel like i'm at the top of a very slippery slope.
