I just wanted to introduce myself as a new member. I am 48 and have been biking since 1963, and have been in love with riding since I learned to ride at age 5. I started into the MTB scene in the mid eighties before index shifting and suspension, and followed through the various fad years including biopace chainrings, chainstay brakes, etc.. . I have owned a number of Chehalis Kleins, several Fat's, early GT's, a Slingshot, Amp FS, and a variety of oddball Cannondale's.
I currently own a 98 Psycle Werks Wild Hare FS, a 2002 FSR S-Works, a mid 90's Santana Picante Tandem in finished in blue ano, a first run early vintage 94 Klein Quantum Pro in Painted Desert, a pristine 87 Raleigh Edge, an 86 Cannondale SM700. and a couple of stingrays to boot.
Well, I know its a collection that pales in comparison to a lot of folks bike collections, but it certainly drives my wife totally crazy at times!
