When my twin brother and I were 15, we both bought our first mountain bikes. I got a 1994 Trek 930 SHX..and its life has been quite the saga..
My brother bought a Silver 1994 Univega 5.3. I remember it well. It was his pride and joy through high school, and with limited funds, he did some pretty cool mods: Shimano 737 Pedals, a Vetta C10 computer, and the
the piece de resistance - Tan Tioga Psychos!
Priorities and interested changed, and the well loved (battered) bike was sold to a friend who subsequently had it stolen, Gone forever unfortunetly...
Fast forward 17 years. Our mutual Birthday was approaching. With all my nostalgic rides providing the needed inspiration, I do an internet search for a 1994 Univega 5.3. This one was for sale..correct size year and colour..DEAD on..too bad it was in Kentucky!
