New here to posting but have been checking out the site for a for a little while. Have got back onto the bike as a result of taking my daughter to nursery and then commuting on to work. Felt compelled to register after seeing the same S-Works frame as mine entered into BOTM. Used to ride until I dislocated my collar-bone and never really got back into riding the hills.

I´m new at this page but I have been looking for a page like this on the www, so looking forward to use it often.. :-)

Hope you get the meaning in my writing since my native language is Danish.

Mountain Bike is my interest but have been a tarmac warrior also...never again :lol:

Afternoon all.

My name is Kieran, I'm 23 and I've been riding bikes (mainly mtb but also road and bmx) since around 2000.

My main reason for signing up to the site is that i want to build myself a retro MTB hardtail of somesort for hacking about on. So with a bit of luck the site will be a help for that.

Hi y'all,

How's it goin'? Just some Canadian guy named Dave who's new here. I found this site a while back when looking for some retro parts online. I had to register recently when I needed a very specific brake part. Of course, someone here had spares. Too cool.

It's great to see how many people are out there who love bikes and who appreciate fine old kit. Sure, there's some builds that are big money, and some vintage bikes that just never really got the miles logged back then. There's also workhorses and the projects that are nothing less than inspirational.

So cheers to the craftsmen (and women) who made 'em back then, and cheers to their caretakers who love 'em and ride 'em still.

Looking for a nice rigid fork with a 1" threaded steerer (160 mm) for 26" wheels.

91 Merlin Mountain
93 Klein Ardoit
95 Rocky Mountain Altitude
98 Trek OCLV VW
02 Santa Cruz Superlight
