- Twenty years ago….What were you riding?
As a 16 year old, I couldnt quite aford the Ascent Ex, I had the Ascent (the white one with black paint splatter), got the train from Doncaster to Grantham to collect it.
I blinged it up with pink Onza bar ends 🙂
edit – and despite the thousands I have spent on new bikes as an adult in the last 20 years, I would say I had more fun, and rode many ,many more miles on my trusty DB Ascent, than any other bike. Ahhh good times 🙂Posted 5 years agorumbledethumpsMember
Specialized Stumpjumper. Fully rigid (obviously) and fitted with Onza bar ends. I think it also had a 1″ steerer. My mate bought this from the Bike Shop in monk street, Derby. I couldnt afford one, he was a Chef on good money at the time so bought it, got bored, and flogged it to me for £300 quid. Brilliant stuff until it got nicked.Posted 5 years agojamesoSubscriber
1992, Just sold my Marin Pine Mtn for an Orange Alu ‘O’ with Pace rigids, Deore 2 with short XT RD, Magura brakes, Ground Controls on Mavic CDs, flite ti, a flex-stem with Zoom bars and fluo pink onza bar ends (retired the Scott AT3s for that build). Just over a grand, pretty good vfm really in hindsight.Posted 5 years ago
