Not so sure about 2WD. It was a rarity then, but they're still playing with the concept in modern times. (Teryo, Christini, Jeep Rubicon)

Still, IMO it's a dead end as it'll never catch on.

I'd like to enter my 1990 Ibis Mountain Trials.
It's dead end is the 24" rear wheel, some manufacturers used this between 1987 and 1992. After this period, there was a longer break until the 2000s when some Enduro's used a smaller rear wheel. Today, this design seems obsolete (Am I right?).

Liking that bike. Didn't Cannondale do the 24/26 thing in their early days?

Biopace type rings are back especially on the road. Brad Wiggins seems to be a fan.

Rigid doesn't seem to have survived as an off-road aspect, perhaps there's an odd exception, but as a generalism, whenever I've seen line-ups of modern bike ranges, I don't recall rigid being apparent.



Most fat bikes I see pictures of are fully rigid, but I guess they are just a dead-end for the future...

Having ridden one yesterday I'd say not. They are a barrel load of fun :)

Plenty of 29ers are fully rigid as well.

Disqualified as it's an early variant of what is today known as 69er.
