Ha, my first MTB was the yellow Rockhopper, bought it from Woodrup Cycles in Leeds for £305 in 1990, I was on the dole at the time but I wanted that bike soooo bad. I loved it but I found the Exage Mountain resin levers & thumbshifters a bit of a let down, kept slipping round & scoring the bars. Me & my mate had our bikes nicked from my basement three months later, he had a yellow Tufftrax. I cried.

LOL, you've all written what I was going to write when I saw the pics.

It is really nice to see retro bikes, how they used to be rather than our rose tinted view of CNC exotica.

Between them they have every accessory I wanted to buy BITD from the original Avocet gel saddle, disc covers for the wheels, Flexstem, rear mech guard, shoulder bag and colour matched zefal pump (I have a black one and a white one in the garage BTW if anyone wants one :)).

Brilliant... Proper retro bikes, none of this poncy exotica most of us seem to be riding around on now!
