There's lots of discussion about road bikes and fatbikes lately. I am looking for something different. Lets see your retro rides.

I've posted this before, but here is my mid 90s Trek Singletrack 930. Double butted chromoly, full rigid. Grip shifts, big bar ends, cantilever brakes, two tone paint job--it screams the 90s.

I paid $500 for it new. My family thought I was insane to spend that much on a bike. It has lasted better than anything that came from the 90s.

An old team M1.
A nice toy I might add. By today's standards, it's more a trail bike than a DH.
It rides rather well though, and can be set up to just about anything.
Today it spots a Swinger 6 way, and a 180mm Domain 318.

Wow, couple of nice bikes and some cool pics.

Since it would be rude to start a thread and not participate in it, here is my contribution.

Is your bike also having a non-standard rear hub?

Ok, not so bad then.
Some of the Santacruz bikes from that time, were running 160mm rear ends.
Those hubs are pretty hard to come by these days.

Cause it's from the Kawasaki team from back in the day. They rode Intense M1.
Mine was ridden by their youth rider. I can't recall the name, but it's stamped in the BB.

Too bad, it would look killer with a resto job. Looks pretty sweet azz as it is though too, I love the old gas tank cruisers.

my rollfast salvage with lester wheels and NOS top drag sprocket. All that remains of the original find is the frame, seat and seat attachment parts. I found the bike on the ice after kids had tossed it off a bridge and threw rocks at it

firestone GTO Panther CL find. I need to work on the original wheels and seat a bit. These tires have massive age cracks in them with the tube oozing through and have a nice wobble to them. Pedals squeak and the headset is loose as hell. I don't even dust it off

^ I don't know what that is but it looks like a blast! wheelie machine


picked this up for parts for my Alenax MTB drive train. It's brand spankin new, never been riden. Every part of value that could be used on a conventional bike had been raided. Then I came and robbed it of the Alenax drive parts. Between this and the old parts off my MTB I could get it rolling again. I stuffed it in the attic just in case I get the desire to some day. doubtful

Nice bikes in these parts.... Mine aren't so old or cool, but I'll try.

My older Schwinn, from the Chicago days. From what I can tell, it's a '73? Have no idea what model it is, though. Seems like someone repainted it at some point. It's currently a fixed-gear commuter/town bike.

Image
Image

Early 2000s-ish Devinci Desperado, 2003 if I remember correctly? That's 11 years old already... XTR v-brakes, 63mm air-sprung SID, 26" wheels on a hardtail. It's a fun bike to ride. I've since taken the gears off and put BB7s on it so that I have at least one bike to reliably ride in the ice and snow during winter.

Image

Earlier 2000s-ish S-works FSR XC. 2002? The same bike that Ned Overend used to rock. Manitou Mars CL with 63mm travel in the front, 75 on the rear. XTR v-brakes, etc....

Image

2001? S-works E5 in the Team Festina colors. It's a pretty loud color scheme, especially compared to the bikes of today. Unfortunately, the chainstay snapped two months ago. Still looking for a replacement frame. :(

That FSR has 80mm of travel on that Manitou fork, I had a Mars but cutted the topout bumpers a bit so I got 85mm travel.

I've only ever gotten 63. It was pretty much unused when I got the bike about a year ago, so I've never had any reason to service the fork. Is there an internal spacer or something in there?

Drop the lowers and if there's more than one bumper there, remove it, and cut the bottom out bumpers in half, and place one half back, then you'll get a little more travel.
