    Way Back Machine, view old websites, such a cool site.

    I hadn't heard of this until a couple of months ago-
    http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://

    The Google search page from 1999, not much different really-

    Not everything comes up with all pics like tis page from Sant Cruz in 2001-








    So, imagine if the whole chase at the end of the all time great chase scene movie “Bullitt” had taken place on bikes instead of in cars. The big question has to be; what would Steve McQueen have ridden?
    Bullit. Six inches of rear wheel travel, all the design and thought that went into our Super 8 downhill bike, but on a significant diet. This is a bike for those who want to ride up the hill, fast, instead of sharing the gondola with a bunch of sweaty, overweight, Dainese clad posers.
    That’s right. Ride up the hill. Be a man. It’s what Steve would do. Then punish them all on the way back down. It should also be noted that the Bullit is possibly the world’s best bike at jumping steep San Francisco street intersections, though we think that’s probably illegal. Frame weighs 7.98lbs

    It's a very helpful tool along with google and bing caches. Google usually updates more often, but Bing cache can be months old, great if the website you like changes and you loose a link or reference. Or if they go offline or domain hijacked.

    I've used google from 1999 onwards, their new changes suck!

    They obviously have a no embedding image script on their website. - most did this in the 90s and early 2000s when bandwidth for images was considered a huge deal, now some don't even bother with videos - youtube etc.
