Reply To: When did you start mountain biking?


I started riding a banana seat Schwinn on some old logging trails near the James River in Richmond, Va.  I upgraded to a Diamondback Mongoose around ’84 and we used to ride back in the woods in upstate SC.  I got my first real mountain bike in 1998 – a Specialized Rockhopper.  I traded that in for a Canondale F600 about 2 years later.  I did a ton of riding in the early 00’s on that bike.  Just recently got back into it.
