1992 Mountain Goat Whiskeytown Racer FS

Nice full suspension version of the Whiskeytown Racer, designed by B. Hall.    A pretty high pivot bike with quite a bit of pedal feedback.  Not one of the more successful designs but remember that this was really cutting edge stuff back in 1992.  Many of the designs used today built on the lessons learned from these early bikes.  Suspension duties are performed by a stack of elastomers and it appears that you could change the suspension by changing the hardness and position of the individual elastomers.  Parts are mostly first generation Shimano XTR with a couple of substitutions.
