Ahhhh…. the joy of my mid-90’s Huffy Strata. This bike is what carried me through my middle and high school years, and at the time, it just didn’t get any better.
A few weeks ago I was rummaging around my parents house and noticed to my suprise that they still had my good old Huffy. Curiously, I decided to check it out.
First of all this bike must weigh 50 pounds. I mean, back when I rode this thing as a kid, I probably wasnt more than 130 pounds myself. The fact that I didn’t notice it at the time was amazing; I must have been in great shape back in the day!
Then there’s the fact that there is absolutely no shock on the front fork. I guess this was a late 90’s invention; I certainly never know about them all those times I furiously pedaled to my friends house to watch “Weekend At Bernie’s.”
I suppose the pics speak for themselves. 7 or so years of rain, snow, and ice have taken their toll. This bike is now completly worthless, but I think I’ll still keep it. After all, it’s my childhood bike and regardless of the fact that it’s as obsolete as a Tandy computer I still love it. What about you all? What kinds of bikes did you ride back in the day?
