Good ol’ days to roll again

New vintage bike category added for Iron Horse
Mike Wilk plans to don period-appropriate mountain-bike clothing while riding his 1992 Yeti A.R.C. in the vintage category of the upcoming Iron Horse Bicycle Classic mountain-bike race. Wilk says he won’t be wearing the shorts, though. “That’s a little beyond what I’m willing to do.”
Mike Wilk shows off the self-energizing brakes on his 1990 Fat Chance mountain bike.
“It rides like a shopping cart,” said Mike Wilk of his 1991 Yeti Ultimate. Wilk has five Yetis in his collection of vintage mountain bikes.
“They’re basically the same, but which one would you want to wear on a hot day?” says Mike Wilk. He plans to wear his old mountain-bike clothing while competing in the vintage category of the upcoming Iron Horse Bicycle Classic mountain-bike race.
“That’s why I like bikes from this era, because there’s so much excess,” says Mike Wilk, who shows off the bar ends on one of his vintage mountain bikes.
Of his collection of vintage mountain-bike collection, Mike Wilk says, “These are all the bikes I wanted as a kid but could never afford.”
