Iirc this Ridgeback was probably the 2nd mtb I ever rode. Loved this bike back then...

Just looks so understated, tidy bike that!

Agreed. These bikes were fantastic to ride and very underrated compared to the icons of the time.

Re:

I'll make up the numbers with this one.

1990 GT Timberline ; with Ishawata 4130 Cro-Mo main tubes, steel chainrings and plastic coated steel brake levers. Nice bit of splatter paint though.
