1985 was before my time, but I started riding shore trails on a mid 90s Diamondback Ascent with a kickass blue/black spatter paint scheme. Full rigid, canti brakes.
Bought it shiny new from the Cap's in Coquitlam and rode that sucker hard!
Wore a helmet tho.
I remember those Ascents. I had a Tech Nova around the same time with a smoke on blue paint job. Funny thing, if I had to choose I'd take those times with the shit bikes over these times with great bikes I think.
For what reason Craw?
When I look back at my university days at UVic it's all rainbows and butterflies, probably because I had fewer responsibilities. Other than say, class at 10am and a run in the afternoon, my days were open. But were they better? Probably not, just different.
Do you miss the smaller community, the less busy trails, fewer gear choices?
