From my early days of MTB I remember the trick cool bikes had reserve spokes on the chainstay. One of them was the Diamondback Apex - but what was the other cool chainstay spoke bikes???

Only ones I can think of are the mid-eighties Saracen Conquest (the 531 framed one) and the Raleigh Randonneur (but obviously not an MTB)

Lots of touring-orientated MTB frames had them. Yeah I remember Saracen having them.

I beleieve some of the earlier Univega's had adaptors to hold spokes to act as some kind of gimicky chain stay protector
