- What year did you start mountain biking?
Hmmm – technically 1990 Check out page 5 for my Ridgeback 601lx:
Then went back to the darkside for a while (Specialized Epic Carbon jobbie)

A bunch of oldies on here! And is this the off roading we did in the quarries long before MTBs were here, old Raliegh Jeeps metallic green with red mud/chain guards, we used to take the guards off, put bigger tyres on and race around what would now be an OK pump/bmx track about 1975 ish – so were we the original clinkers!?!
Then rode/tested an early Specialized in the early 80s – but had my first MTB a Hardrock in 85-86 (people used to stop me all the time to ask what it was), replaced with a Stumpjumper in 88 which I still have….. then another one, then another one……. never really got much better and was pretty quickly overtaken by sprog James, who has flown past me since 11-12Posted 9 years ago
