Hey my VRC brethren-

So many great pictures come through this forum we could lose a day searching for photos in individual threads.

Now we have a place to store and share photos of VRC all in one place!

Probably should have done this a while ago...but the Vintage Retro Classic Photo Gallery is now open! :D

View all the VRC in one place.

The catch is that in order to build this gallery...we need to load (or move) our MTBR hosted pics to this new gallery.


http://gallery.mtbr.com/showgallery.php/cat/1092


At any rate, its there. Enjoy!



****------------------------------- EDIT --------------------------------****


The gallery is off to a great start.

A couple things to keep it clean and organized and add to it's value.

1) A nice clean photograph of your vintage, retro, or classic MTB. Preferably a full bike, drive side photograph.
2) Try and include or estimate the year along with bike make and model
3) If you have the time, spec out the bike so others can enjoy your hard work. You can use the list below as a template.

most excellent...is there a cutoff year? I imagine around '94 or so would be the "newest".

No specific cut off year, but if we post what is generally considered vintage, retro, or classic...hopefully others will get the idea.

If 2002 full suspension bikes end up in there, I'll see that they're removed. :D

Okay, I'm stumped. How do I move my photos? I figured that would be easier that uploading them again, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Go to the picture you want to move (in your pic album)...and there should be a drop down menu that will let you select the gallery you want to place it in.

It might be just a 'one-at-a-time' kinda thing..but you can move your pics around.

...and yes, you can go back into the picture of the bike you want and edit it's info.


What are you guys' thoughts to a generic 'spec list' at the top of this thread to be added to the photo info?

Too much work? I think we can make this a pretty organized database of vintage mtbs and their respective parts spec.
The bikes on file look pretty clean so far.


For example:

No more than you Rumpfy, except mine are mostly all built ;) I need to get better pic's of 3 more Ritchey's, a Salsa, Mountain Goat, Paramount PDG90, Paramountain, early MB-1, early Stumpy, Bianchi, oh and one of DL's favorites, the early Diamondback Apex :lol: :skep: I only have 2 current projects in the works, another DL favorite, a '94 Bonty and a 1935 Hawthorne Flyer. Guess I need to do some frame painting soon :winker:
