Just wondering if anyone has heard of a bike made by Pacific Cycles? I had one of these about 15 years ago, it was the super XT model and i have come across the Super LX version a while back. Never seen or heard of them since!

They come up from time to time on ebay. I have the feeling that they bought out GT at some point.

Good value bikes as I remember.

I do. MBUK did a test of the Pacific Mountain Expert (was it Mountain Expert II?) that was a turquoise blue in colour. In the battle for my first "proper" mountain bike, it was pipped at the post by a Trek 7000.

I've not seen another since and have an inkling that it may have been an e-stay.

It would have been around 1991, I think.
