Started Mtbing in 1990 on a Dawes Kickback which I soon Traded in for a 1991 Marin Eldridge Grade ( Worst Bike I ever Owned).
Then I progressed onto a handfull of Specialized Stumpjumper's including a 1993 M2 (which was the second worst bike I ever owned ) plus a steel s-works which was a very nice bike (had nuke proof ti hubs on it ).
Last bike I bought is my current machine a 1999 Kona explosive which I love.
Would like to own a 1990 18.5" Rocky Mountain Blizzard and a 1990 18" Specialized Rockhopper Comp in blue ( which was the bike I should of bought instead of that pile of crap Marin Eldridge Grade)
Im So glad I found this site its fueled my love of Mountain bikes and biking to a new/old Retro level.
Oh Yeah anyone got a picture of a Rocky Mountain steel
Vertex must of been 1991 or 1992 model
