mongoose_iboc02.jpg
THIS IS THE BIKE I RODE MY 1ST RACE ON.RACE DAY SHIRT IN BACKGROUND.

THE IBOC PRO IS MY RACE FIRST BIKE THAT I USED ON THE 1ST SIZZLER MOUNTAIN BIKE CLASSIS HELD IN GRANT RANCH,SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA, ON AUGUST 1989..I THINK MY RACE NUMBER WAS #172. I RACED THE SPORTSMAN CLASS. IT'S A HEAVY BIKE NOW COMPARED TO THE LATER BIKES I'VE OWNED BUT WHEN I BOUGHT IT,IT FELT LIGHT. I DNF'd THE RACE AFTER THE FIRST 10 MILE LAP. I DIDN'T PREPARE FOR THE RACE PROPERLY. AFTER THE RACE I PRACTICED RIGHT BY RIDING THE RACE COURSE OVER AND OVER AGAIN,CLIMBING THE STEEP HOTEL TRAIL INSTEAD OF PUSHING THE BIKE UP.THE BEST THING ABOUT THE BIKE WAS THE WISHBONE REAR STAYS WHICH STIFFENED UP THE REAR AND THE BIKE TOOK OFF LIKE A ROCKET. THE IBOC WAS ORIGINALLY DEORE EQUIPPED BUT I REPLACED MOST PARTS WITH SHIMANO XT AND SUNTOUR XC PRO. I'M NOT INTO BUYING ANYTHING ENDORSED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES BUT JOHN TOMAC WAS THE MAN BACK IN THE DAYS AND I WANTED TO WIN LIKE HIM. NEVER DID WIN A RACE BUT I ENJOYED BEING AT THE RACES AND HANGING OUT WITH MY FRIENDS. I STILL HAVE THE RACE DAY T-SHIRT,GIVEN OUT TO PEOPLE WHO SIGNED UP TO RACE. THE RACE NUMBER WAS THROWN OUT BY A FAMILY MEMBER MANY YEARS AGO. 'JOHNNY T' IS RETIRED AND HANGING UP ON THE WALL AS A TROPHY BIKE. THESE DAYS I CAN NOW RIDE A TEN MILE LAP AS IF I'M RIDING AROUND THE BLOCK. YOU GET BETTER WHEN YOU GET OLDER.
