Today the Peugeot PXs are one of the most iconic and collected bicycles from the 60s and 70s. One of the first titanium frames in the history of bike design, the Teledyne Titan was sold from to Advertised as being two-thirds as heavy as the steel frames in that era, it weighed just under 4.
The bike did have several problems, though, including being too flexible and crack-prone. Fewer than Titians were produced, but it was noted for inspiring a new era of lighter, more comfortable bikes. As road riders dabbled in cross-country riding in the off-season, exploring multiple terrains by bike became more popular, they searched for bikes that would better suit off-road pursuits. Californians added thumb-shift-operated derailleurs and wider tires to their bicycles to take on the hills and mountains.
The Breezer Series I kickstarted the sport of mountain biking. In , Specialized released the first mass-produced Mountain Bike. The original Stumpjumper was steel-framed, had no suspension, and weighed almost 30 pounds. Even so, It was the most versatile and capable mountain bike of its day and became wildly popular.
The debut of the Stumpjumper significantly contributed to the rise of mountain biking and became an icon the the 80s. Though its design has greatly evolved over the years, Specialized still produces the Stumpjumper today. Fort Missoula's 2nd Lieutenant James A. Moss reached out to the A. Spalding Company in search of bikes to use, and Spalding agreed to provide military bicycles co-designed by Moss.
The Corps consisted of eight black men who trained together to ride in all conditions. The soldiers rode with rifles strapped across their back carrying fifty rounds of ammunition. Their longest trip was 41, days when they covered 1, miles from Fort Missoula to St.

It was designed to flex over bumps and improve comfort. This was a huge leap for carbon, arguably leading to the rise of carbon bikes throughout the industry. Trek introduced new models of the OCLV until , making changes to improve performance and further decrease weight. After the mass production of mountain bikes in the s, Specialized began work on full-suspension designs.
Since the design was introduced in , FSR has radically changed downhill mountain biking, and is still the most successful and copied rear suspension system in the world. Italian cyclist Ernesto Colnago began his bicycle manufacturing business near Milan in , after a bad crash had ended his own racing career.
Colnago quickly gained a reputation as one of the best high-quality, custom bicycle manufacturers of his time, collaborating with and creating bicycles for cycling legend Eddy Merckx in the s and 70s. In , Swiss cyclist Tony Rominger broke the world one-hour record on a steel-frame Colnago, sporting game-changing aerodynamic handlebars. Despite his many wins, Colnago was determined to create more rigid bicycles by experimenting with different frame materials.
The Surly Pugsley changed the fatbike scene by boosting their availability and rider participation more than ever before. Released in , the original was a purple frame with 65mm-wide Large Marge rims and 3. It was the first mass-produced fatbike built for riding in deep snow and sand.
