....nice step back in time coming back to this site - thanks to Matt Rowley for pointing me here....
used to do a fair bit of cycling in the early 90's...many old mates I wonder what happened to, some I still hear from occassionally
started off with a Marin Palisades Trail, then an Overburys Pioneer, then a Klein Attitude.....used a Fusion 0250 in between too.....
couple of peeps responsible on the way - Alex Morris for getting me involved right in the first place, Tim Davies for his very sound advice to a young entusiastic oik (me ) saying schoolwork/studies must come first as well as training techniques, to name but a few...
sadly the Klein was stolen and after that, I kinda lost interest as started driving....
recently got my hands back on a 2003 Kona Cindercone but it's nice to be riding again
I'll try and dig out some pics of the old bikes and put them up for a giggle
(now in correct topic heading)
pics at last
first bike - 1989 Marin Palisades 19" (black stem due to a bit of a nasty accident involving a steep hill, a tree and a heli ride to hospital).
LX groupset and Mavic M6 rims.
then after seeing the May 90 ad for the Overbury's Pioneer, I ordered one the same, 18.5", but mine came with the straight forks, the then-to-have Suntour XC Comp, XCD hubs & brakes, MA40 rims, and a nifty but lethal VAPOR stem ...waited months and months for it.....nice bike...paint chipped easily sadly...nice satin finish
Then my 1991 Klein Attitude - awesome bike. ran 28/38/48 no probs
Built from frame only, had XT throughout, MA40's (always buckling) eventually ran Bullseye hubs, Titanium Flite saddle eventually...
then lastly my 1992 Fusion 0250 Team Issue XTR........not everyone's cup of tea but I really really liked this!
XTR throughout, with RC-35's. I changed the stem for a longer lower reach CONTROL STEM...
