Excellent collection, almost a museum full.
The only one's I'm not sure about are the Potts bikes. I know they are very desirable and beautifully put together but I can't learn to like the geometry of the frame. Interesting that the Salsa from the same period has the much more compact frame design that we're all so used to seeing these days.
Very cool dood.
have you ever ridden one of those old geometry bikes? they rip singletrack, bomb downhill, do everything right. long chainstays rock! it gives a short wheelbase bike all the stability it needs to bomb fireroads. it gives superb balance on technical hardcore singletrack..
not to mention the sublime potts rigid fork.
i take those bikes over anything modern.
Yup. I've ridden bikes with the more relaxed geometry, early UK bikes copied the NorCal design. The Potts are beautifully made it's just the geometry doesn't suit my taste.
I just wish I lived somewhere with the kind of trails they suited, this little old island isn't famous for it's fireroad or hard pack
