    10 years, that's it? Still have 2 of my 20+ year old bikes going.

    Current ride is a '98 Ellsworth Truth FS that I slowly improve over the years with a mix-match of components. Nothing pretty about it but it works awesome and I love it.

    My wife rides my '96/97 Voodoo Hoodoo HT converted over to more of a street bike with slicks and a rigid fork. Light, very easy roll.

    As my son grows, he's moved up from his 20" BMX to a 26" bike we're building together for him based on my wife's old '02 Specialized Hard Rock frame.

    My 1995 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 that I purchased new in January of 1996. First pic is how I rode it up until last year when I finally upgraded to a front shock, better brakes and new tires. Second pic is how it looks today.....

    Here is our fleet is 26'ers.


    2000 Klein Adroit Pro. Work in progress. Built up with stuff from my parts pile. Got the frame 2 years ago.

    Rode this last week while on a trip. Early 2000's Montague CX folder. Got this summer of 2017. My travel bike. I ride this on the beach, so its a bit rusty.

    2003? Marin Wolf Ridge. Rode this today. Another parts-box build from frame. I've had it a few years. Ran it single speed for awhile.

    The stumpy gets a lot of use. Had it for about 18 months. 2007 or 2008 or so.

    The XC is used a little. Really nice bike. Very clean condition. Picked it up recently. 2005-ish?
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.50.31-custom-.jpg
    Future project Indy Fab Deluxe frame. Got this last year. 2003 or so
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.51.53-custom-.jpg
    Raleigh Technium Peak, early 1990s. Has crack in frame near seat clamp. Donated many parts to the Klein. Future art project I guess.
    26ers over 10 years old-2018-07-14-16.55.22-custom-.jpg
    Trek Liquid. Very nice bike. Another recent addition. 2005 I think

    Ugh. You have me beat. I have a shot-peened 2001 Truth that I'm riding. I love the bike! Just last week I took out a demo Pivot xc bike ($6,000). It was nice for sure, but all I could think about was how I didn't really notice any of the innovations over the past 17 years, aside from the position change....On my bike, I have a ridiculous amount of spacers, to help improve my position on the bike.

    Finished up my '97 Bontrager Privateer Comp XT yesterday.

    New Bontrager tires, Bontrager Mustang rims, cables, housings, ferules, head set, saddle (Brooks Special w/copper rivets) and rebuilt Judy XC.

    Freshly sandblasted and powder coated in original color. New decals.

    Still looking for a few things.

    After 20 years of use, abuse and neglect it was due for a freshening up. Hopefully it's good for another 20 years.

    Diamond Back Topanga (1993 IIRC). Purchased from a mechanic friend of mine and built up into a commuter.

    A random scene with my all-purpose 1993 Diamond Back Ascent EX. Haulin' a heavy load.

    1996 Gary Fisher XCaliber. I'm sure this picture is over 10 years old. The Judy XC's elastomers are toast and I'd like to replace the fork with an 80mm alternative. If you'd like to sell me one let me know.
    Seeking a 90's or 00s 80mm 26" suspension fork.

    My 96 Yo Eddy now serves commuter / gravel duty.


    Currently restoring and converting this 1990 Trek into a dirt drop ride.


    And my newly acquired 1993 26er Bilenky fillet brazed tandem.

    My repainted Decathlon 9.1 from 2007

    Great ride, despite the years. 150mm Sektor air up front and upgraded X-fusion shock.
