Went through my old mags to sort them and found out I had a couple of doubles:

MBA August '95, excellent condition. Ten hardtail shootout, Mantis Pro Floater, Tazmon, Tomac's Giant, AMP forks, Hope discs, Showa superlight forks, etc.

Image

MBA May '91, good condition with cover peeling off. Breezer Lightning, Kona Fire Mountain, Fisher Mt Tam, Bridgestone Mb4, Marin/Klunker article, etc.

Image


Would be great to do a swap if anyone's got spares of some I am missing from the "golden age" '94-'97:

Mountain Bike: '94 any month, '95 J/F/M/Apr/S, '96 Jan, '97 J/May/J/J/S/O/N/D
MBA: '94 J/F/Mar/Apr/Jun, '95 May, '96 J/May/Jun/A/O/D

Failing that, if someone wants them I'll send them for price of postage. Or bring them to March retromeet.

Hi sylvain,

interested in the May 91 issue.
I think I have one of the 94 issues you are looking for.
I will check on Monday, ok?

Cheers

Hi sylvain, I'm interested the August 95 issue.. Coupla beers for it at the March Meet?

I'm sure I've got all my old MBUKs/MBAs/MTBPros in my folks loft so I'll see when I get back in March for you..

I'd be interested in having a read of the bike shoot out in the Aug 95 issue.

What bikes were tested?

In order of replies:

curve; Ok

kingroon; Ok

andrewl, the test is 15-pages long but I don't have a scanner handy. Bikes are (in rating order!): Stumpy M2, Balance AL-750, GT Zaskar, Mongoose Iboc, Kona Kula, Iron Horse ARS800R, Mountain Goat Mud Slinger, DB WCF Vertex, Wheeler eII, Fisher Paragon. Phew!

Hey sylvain,

Any chance I might get you to post a scan of the Mantis Pro Floater review from the '95 issue? :wink:

Thanks
