I know this is a tricky list because for each mountainbike enthousiast the list will be different.
A few weeks back i started a topic on retrobike to ask for their top 10 and offcourse,..a lot of different lists.
I will use this as a guide because some of these bikes deserve some extra attention.
Also i think the list should contain models instead of brands because brands is focussed enough to my opinion.
And the top 10 as mountainbikes is not the list I would choose because my knowledge about the first/older bikes is very limited and therefore i will be looking at other lists.
feel free to comment me and show me your list or "have to be on the list"
Number 10 -> AMP RESEARCH
Number 9 -> MOUNTAIN CYCLE SAN ANDREAS
Number 8 -> BONTRAGER
Number 7 -> FAT CITY FAT CHANCE
