Speed Shop: Mountain Cycle
Mountain Cycle stuff… it seems like a lifetime away now.
It was as much fun to do as it was frustrating to manage, but the bikes, all of them, ended up being very cool; even today I am happy with the way they came out, considering how many times the goal posts were moved before, during and even after production.
The prototype 29er was raced by one of the Marzocchi crew at local races in southern California. The reports were that it was fast and rode more like a BMX than a 29er; and that was a very good thing.
The van was anything but fast. Actually, it was a pile of crap. But at least I made it look fast…!
