that was such a cool period of time. the vancouver scene was just vibrating with energy - ever more extreme trails were being built, and a cottage industry of core manufacturers building gear capable of withstanding the punishment sprang up alongside. i also worked in a shop at the time, and the stack of broken warranty frames that accumulated in the early days was impressive. but the manufacturers were paying attention, and subsequent iterations got burlier in response. So yeah - I have to agree that the north shore had a significant impact on the evolution of the modern mountain bike. Or at least was an important catalyst in the accelerated development of the species. rad to have been part of this era (if only peripherally).
