Mountain Goat

 “This is a project I finished last summer.  1992 Mountain Goat Whiskeytown FS.  The design was a college senior thesis from a Mountain Goat employee, which got horrible reviews.  High pivot placement induced tons of pedal bob in the rear end. I took it for a spin and it was indeed like riding on one of those coin-op pony rides you see outside Wal-Mart. But what’s not to love? This was a team bike from that year raced by local Durangoan Linda Meyers.  XTR M900, Nuke Proof, Grafton, and Rock Shox Mag 20 with matching team paint.  There are likely less than 50 of these bikes in the world… I know of two: This one, and the one in the First Flight Bikes Museum. Very rare, and very cool.”
