Bikes you wish you had owned but never did – pics.
I always wanted one of those blue and yellow Overburys that use to be advertised in MBUK back in the day. I had a Zasker with XTR brakes/levers,rear hub, Ringle front hub syncros stem and post and middleburn cranks and Rockshox judys. Even then it was light as **** and use to fly along though a bit skitish on the down hills.Posted 9 years ago
Maybe Halfords tried to copy the blinginins bikes of their time
I’m sure, and regardless of which came first, I still think it looks like a Â£30 bike lol (In fact I had to google to find out what it was as I thought it was a joke!). I like the litespeed, very much.Posted 9 years agovinnyehSubscriber
sad old fcuker here… I had one of the original Aliens, and hankered after the ACX with switchblades, but they never came to NZ.
Always wanted (and still do) one of these…
Also wanted one of these (but now know better) – Mert Lawill’s suspension design credentials were impeccable- but didn’t cross over to bikes too well..

Okay please someone remind me how to post pics
Easy, find your pic url, if there uploaded on flickr for instance, right click on pic, click on properties , find url address and copy
come on here, click on img, paste then click on /img. no spaces between anything though
Loved the zaskar, though always wanted an xizang ti, the ultimate x cross country GT. Alpinestars were fantastic looking bikes as well. Then i loved the GT RTS1, first proper downhill bike. Klein’s were amazing nostalgic bikes, though remember about 15 years ago wanted an ultimate build which used a tioga disc drive. Â£450-00 bucks 15 years ago though was alot of cash
here’s some i also adored

Just a point of order – Mert Lawill suspension designs were/are excellent look up the late 90’s early 00’s Yeti DH race bikes.
Also the Leader fork was better performing than all of the equal forks of its time.
From your post, your clearly aware of the man – But those who are unaware Mert is the only man to be inducted into the MTB and Motorcycle hall of fame.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
I really used to lust after this, after I first saw it in a Freewheel catalogue (but in black):
Some young lad on my estate had one, and I knew it was stolen, as they were well over Â£2000, even back then. ****. Mind, he ended up doing a fair amount of time (for being a ****, mainly), so Karma was served.
Also liked the original Pace as above, and a Klein Adroit, which was like the Attitude above, but lighter.
Always wanted a Cannondale, because of the fatness of the tubes, and eventually got one. Plus a Lefty fork, just because, and got one.
Have to say, money no object, there is actually nothing I really lust after any more. They’re just bikes, now.Posted 9 years ago
