Just joined the forum, the oldest bike in my collection is 1994, does it qualify as retro?

Mate, when I joined up I was a RetroBikeWannaBe with an '03 Uzzi! :oops:

Now I have bike bits everywhere, my Mum [in the UK] has most of Jez2ManyBikes sale items and my girlfriend thinks I have a 90s Attachment Issue :shock:

Hahaha It's All Good TM Tooheys

Show us yer bike!

My stable contains:

Parkpre Pro Image 1994 - best bike in the world I don't care what your opinion may be, no arguments now. This actual bike featured in MTB Pro mag for the first review and then was used by Chipps for the 3 Peaks challenge (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon). I bought it direct from the UK importers after it was returned to them. Full spec here ... http://www.parkpre.com/bikepics/mybike.htm

Marin Mount Vision c.1998 - comfy, but always feels too small for me.

Specialized Rockhopper c.1999 - the missus bike

Parkpre Pro Elite titanium frame - once owned by Clive Powell, has a hairline crack around the bottom bracket shell. It was a warranty return to the UK importers.

Parkpre Pro 825 frame 15" c. 1995 - unused, never been fitted up, has slight surface rust on seat stay.

Recently sold a Cannondale f900 - great bike but not enough room so it had to go.

Previous owned:
Trek 930 - my first proper mountain bike.
Diamondback Traverse - got bitten by the bug on this one.

I used to race mountain bikes until my shoulder exploded in 1999 and have not ridden in anger since. Hence 'Fat, unfit and over fourty'

I run the Parkpre.com website so I may be a little biased. Click the www button below this post and you will be taken there.

Just looked at your parkpre site and noticed the Pro Octane - which came first then the Mountain Cycle San Andreas or the Pro Octane as they are very similar!!
