Howdie ladies and gents... what a damn fine website!! I've been checking in for a while but thought I'd finally say hello and post some interesting pics taken in Malvern yesterday of retro-gear of yesteryear. My folks are moving gaff and while packing up came across two of my old tops. The Alpinestars fits the missus like a glove however the Axo was definitely a little snug on me.... (ignore the bike, I promise I have a fine selection of early 90s beasts)

Just an observation on what MTBers be wearing these daze.. it seems baggy kakhis is the in thing, the baggier the better in fact. Top wise everyone seems to be in black or brown.. nothing is loud anymore? Sod that, as far as I'm concerned be LYCRA n' LOUD!!

Enjoy.....
