Hi everyone! Me and my friends are from Lviv, Ukraine. Every weekend we riding local trails on our old two-wheelers, my bike is 1990 Specialized Hardrock currently in klunker build, which is most comfortable bike i ever rode. Our team is called "Твій друг", which means "Your friend" :D, we love and try to promote the old school of MTB in our region.
In this thread i will be posting some pics from our weekend rides and our bike builds.

Hi and welcome!

Looks like a cool initiative; some lovely bikes you're riding that seem to be in ace condition..!
Is it snowy in your part of the Ukraine at the moment, or are those some older pictures?

Enjoy, spread the retro vibe ;)

Those are old pics, at this time we have very warm summer with good amount of rains, which is perfect for riding vintage mtb :P
But in winter we are riding too:

Those Neon Magura’s sure stick out in your pics

If you weren’t quite so far away I’d try and coerce you into coming to Mountain Mayhem in 2019

A few photos from local 40km gravel race in Carpathian mountains called Gravelion (http://www.gravelcyclist.com/event/grav ... ce_id=2700). In this race i took 1st place in mtb category and 3rd place in overall standings with my 90' Specialized Hardrock, showing to hi-end gravel bikes that old is gold :D
