vintage... an early mountain bike

mid 1980's Peugeot

nothing special

not an expensive bike
but it seemed like there were only a handful of "mountain bike" options
this bike may have been the inspiration of some companies having a 26 inch wheel bike called a "city bike"
this was all before the "hybrid"
which was a blend of the tall wheels of the road bike and the fatter tires of the mountain bike

it took years for the 29er to enter the scene
