Re: Here's a fun one. What was the first mountain bike you owned? Second bike?

My first mountain bikes were a series of Free Spirits from Sears. Of course, these were terrible bikes with ornamental suspension and cheap components. I finally convinced my parents to help me buy a 2004 Giant Rincon, which was then upgraded for a 2006, I believe, made in Canada Oryx T-Line 125. Got out of the sport for a while during high school, but in University I bought a Devinci Wooky XC race bike, which still serves as my gravel bike.
