''...riding uphill is the true essence of Mountain Biking...''

Try getting away with that today!

Thanks for sharing - it really shows the splitting of the MTB scene: rigid simple all terrain bikes to the full suspension MTB as we know today with the almost contemporary looking Mantis full suspension MTB.

The rigid giving way to the suspended (the marketing men rubbing their hands with glee!)
