I know we all love to restore and ride our vintage mtb's, but I'm curious...how many of your put the same effort and attention into a modern bike as well?

For me, I love to ride a VRC bike on many of my local trails here. The bikes are fun to ride, they get attention, and it makes for a fun challenge to see if you can take on the modern bling bikes.

But we've got some trails here in NorCal that are pure heaven, and not something I'd put an old bike on.

I'm VRC all the way...but sometimes its hard to beat a nice new bike.


So...post pictures of your modern mountain bike (whatever that may be)!

A little lower in the food chain but.....

I guess my fave "newer" ride is my Surly. Nothing fancy or high-tech, it's just a very responsive, fun ride. Just good to hop on and go, with a real low maintenance factor :thumbsup:

This was in another post but I've taken better picture now and installed the Goat head coins on the seat stays.

Another V. :)

Inspired by VRC ideas. It's a modern retro if you will. Bull horn bars, square taper BB and crank, longer stem, and thumbies.

On a dually frame with disc brakes.
