I actually have a few bikes davey All hoarded from my younger days Have a scott high octane one pictured
And also a nitrous 30 which can just about be spotted in pic above Pretty cool bikes at the time and the high octane was pretty dear when new think was around 2.5k lol Both Scott's are 2005 bikes so pretty retro now
Also have a specialised big hit and funnily enough have a v2 frame and shock here but never really got on with the Santa Cruz tho
Was it orange that built the Mr O? I had an orange 5 a few years ago which I loved, my youth was spent lusting after the Patriot!
Yeah orange built the Mr O, I too also wanted a patriot, black with red boxxers on it, also wanted a kona stinky in the green/yellow/red colour from the late 90's. Sadly I could never afford one and had to stick with hardtails. I currently have an '07 commencal meta but she don't count as retro enough in my eyes. One of the best looking bikes I thought was the sintesi bazooka, the space framed one, with shivers on it
Picture stolen from google.
And there was also the brooklyn machine works bike which was so bad ass, ah man this was my childhood, before mobile phones and wasteofspacebook when kids would venture outside and ride their bikes around local shops, colleges and city centres getting chased by security...ah fond memories
