Reply To: When did you start mountain biking?


I’m not sure at what point, by definition, I started. I started taking my geared road bike on trails when I was approximately 10 (late 70’s early 80’s) which also taught me a lot about fixing bikes seeing those bikes weren’t made for trail rips in rocky New England… My first sight of a mt bike in the mid 80’s certainly got me as excited as my first girlfriend (well almost) and I’m not one to keep up with technology so since then I can count on one hand how many mt bikes I’ve owned, but not the amount of components I’ve replaced :-/. After all these years my original road bike had more bells and whistles than my current Kona Big Unit rigid SS… It had gears!! Although the Kona definitely rips the trails much better 😉
