Got into mountain biking in 1990.
Started with a Schwinn Sierra MOS.
Went through various bikes over the next ten years. Klein Rascal. Manitou FS (not the fork. Manitou full suspension frame). Amp B4. GT LTS.
Built up this Mcmahon BUFF towards end of 97 going into 98. IIRC, I got frame at end of 97 and collected rest of pieces in 98.
I rode this through 99 and life got in way and stopped riding. Luckily sat unmolested collecting dust in my parents basement.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago and i got the biking bug back. Ill be bringing it back to life and will make some decisions on some upgrades.
