Like many of you my first mountain biking was not  on a mountain bike. I spent months trying to get my dad’s Schwinn Varsity( road bike 30+ lbs) up the path through the woods behind my parents house without touching down once. This was probably about the same time that the sport was being “invented” on Mt. Tam in the Seventies.  First mountain bike was an REI Novara Aspen(still steel 30+lbs). Second was a  1991 Bridgestone MB-1 hardtail which I’m still riding.
