The mighty mountain cruiser

Crested Butte was cruiser heaven.

So it really is not the NAHBS, but this is real bikes getting used hard.

Clicking photos takes you to the flickr page where you can view em big...

Outside the Nordic Ski Center



Nice Ski tube



Kelly cross fork on the motobecane fixie



Schwinn suburban(?)



Schwinn Excelsior hanging in the MTB hall of fame


Schwinn Typhoon reamed out for a 1" threadless mtb fork.


Front chains on this MTB, I could not tell whether the front brake actuated or if it was disabled for safety


Waiting for the thaw, I guess


Schwinn traveler outside the Chamber of commerce


The Schwinn Lil' Chick, note the older MTBs in the racks behind


This guy was on an old Ibis mountain bike, I also saw a woman cruing around on an early nineties Barracuda frame. I guess old race mountainbikes are the Schwinn Cruisers of the nineties.


Huffy outside out hotel, I think the night manager commuted on it.


Typhoon over the Bar



Typhoon of a million spokes


Two speed kick back Merlin Newsboy in the MTB hall of fame


The rested of the crested butte trip photos here. And the subset mountain bike hall of fame pictures here.

Geri,
I had no idea Tflo had such collectors type items in his stash, I did not see it, but I am guessing they have a ton of bikes in storage for rotating through.
