|I bought the same bike in '98. Picked it up in Canada for a song. I still have the decals, but nearly everything else has been replaced, except the brakes and the fork (2 rebuilds on the fork).
Best upgrade: A Cane Creek Cloud 9 air shock. Check out the reviews on mtbr.com. It is hard to believe how much better it rides with the shock; almost like getting a new bike. I have abused mine for 2 years now, and it is bulletproof.
Every year I plan to replace it for something lighter, but haven't been able to sell the wife on a new ride with this sh!t economy and all. No problem; it rides just fine. I demo'd some bikes last year and while they were quite a bit lighter, I couldn't justify the $.
|how about a breezer cloud 9?||colker1|

|Got this Cadex mountain bike used for 350$. Put slicks and the largest chainrings that would fit the 94 bcd. The bike usually has a rack and fenders.|

|My BMX. I hung up the rear wheel on the coping so the rear rim won't fit rear brakes anymore. Had this bike since 1996. Haven't ridden it much this year but it's always fun to go to the store on.|

|I don't have any pictures of it and it's in my Mom's attic, but I have an old 80's Race Incorporated 24 cruiser! But they were notorious for having the chainstays crack, and I did crack a 20 inch one as a kid at 110 pounds... I would hate to see what one jump with my adult 220 pound butt would do to this one now! And that is precisely why it is sitting in my Mom's attic collecting dust (and appreciating in value too, I must say!)
It would be fun to ride that bike, but I just know I would do something stupid on it and break it. But I also have a GT 24 inch cruiser. Just got it a couple weeks ago for jumping around on, and riding to class. It is nice and was cheap too. I think it's good to have a BMX bike, or at least a BMX background. It helps with the bike handling skills.
