    Old School Rigid MTB's

    Alright guys, as the originator of this post I think I've kept everyone waiting long enough. I finally scored this vintage mountain bike from my boss a few days ago and had a blast taking it out to the trail in my area. It's a pretty rad ride. Enjoy!

    Old School Rigid MTB's
