Classic Mountain Bikes: shots from 2004 at The Bike Companynate collins
A lot of things can be said about the MTB industry – but it isn’t scared of change! Check out some shots of the cutting edge in 2004 – these Classic Mountain Bikes. Ellsworth, Foes, Santa Cruz, Intense and Turner were the chassis of choice.
Geometry, linkage and suspension components were all in their relative infancy. While race teams certainly helped these were the days when clients were an unspoken part of the R&D chain from manufacturers.
Almost no standardized parts. Frames that required a lot of massaging to be straight and true. These are the years that our mechanics really began to stand out from the crowd.
Developing along with the bikes our team has been there, done that and many times developed procedures and solutions for problems big and small.
