Just posted a pic of my second road bike, shown in a 1971 newspaper article at http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=825257#825257. Doesn't have much to do with mountain biking, but just shows cycling was my life for a very long time. Cheers!

Wow! That's what it's all about for me, a well used piece of mountain biking history still getting muddy and enjoyed. Love it! 8)

Guess I'm just not up on stuff. What's an ACCUTRAX?

A particular type of fork most commonly seen on Yeti's.

That Accutrax is an unusual fork. Can't recall having noticed one before. If I spot one around San Diego, I'll let you know!

Hey Kevin, saw this on the FB page, that's got to be the bike you had at the GEAR Rally in '82 at Slippery Rock Uni in Pennsylvania. You were the first "real" mountain biker with the first real mountain bike we ever met and saw back then. We went on to do a lot more riding in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia after that. Great seeing old friends still at it.

All the best, Vic Rollins - Bangkok
