Here's a picture of me on my old Claud Butler (1989) the bike is still in the family and my sister regularly rides it to work!!! I am not sure anything has been altered.

What's your longest serving work horse. They don't make them like this anymore.

I think so, I got it second hand from a guy who'd swapped the exage onto a cannondale, so it had real mixture of stuff.

Reynolds 501frame fantastic.

The bike that started it all for me!!!

Beats me. Even if i did have my first proper mtb. No earlier than 89 if i could remember may be 88. Must be nice having your ride that long. Take care of it.

My TrailRunner Carbolite is my longest serving one. I have it since 1995.
