Let's have a laugh and reminisce..Old Skool MTB photos (no bitching please!).
So let’s see some of your old skool pics! Got me thinking about I’ve been tidying stuff up the loft, found a lot of old MTB photos.
Me on my first ever MTB £99 Emmelle Cheetah, T-shirt my brother made a school it had “power” screen printed in purple on the front! Taken at Margam Park 1993 about my 2nd ever MTB race (which I do believe I won!)
This was billed as an MTB race..home village of Nicole Cooke, I also believe this may be one of the first races she did which was her foreay into cycling.
Boxing Day ride 1993 what are those trousers about? Guessing I rolled them up so as not to die on the descents!!
So come on let’s see yours….Posted 6 years agoOCBMember
The only known picture of anything cycling related back in the day. There are no known bicycle riding shots (but there should be some long-distance motorcycle endurance-trail pictures somewhere – although they’ll all be the same: a handful of muddy, tired-out looking bearded blokes stood around mud-coloured trials bikes, on garage forecourts at all hours of the day/night). Ah, they were the days …
Anyway, this is my ’92 Fire Mountain, within a couple of weeks of being bought – brand new (£450.00!). One of the only two bicycles that I ever bought as complete bike, and it still gets a regular seeing to.

Milford sound South Island New Zealand 1991….my ’89 Diamondback Ascent on the back of my Ford Falcon 500 (4.1 litre straight 6 column shift….pure class with vinyl roof and beer crate holding up the front bench seat! But a great ski/surf/MTB mission wagon). The bikes still going strong as a commuter with a friend in Denmark.Posted 6 years agoackieMember

Trying to find some scans, circa 1989 – 1992 but have just dug this out of the cupboard. Quite impressed that it’s lasted almost 22 years!
Think that would have been on a Giant Explorer and a load of us from the shop all went up in a van. Pretty sure that only one of us was old enough to hire the thing and fell asleep driving back…Posted 6 years agorusty trowelMember

I’ve got a photo of me which matches your 4th photo. Some race in the Quantocks in maybe late 1991? Lots of riding across fields with a bit through the woods and a couple of banks to ride down…
I crashed on the last lap and ended up in hospital….
Some great photos… Happy days….
