    Balfa 2step is one of the great bike that were so ahead of their time..
    I found one lately that i've built for my step bros. It handle just as good has my Canfield bros one first gen, wich is another that should have stayed that way instead of becoming what it is now.
    expensive cars are a waste of money. Expensive bikes...not so much!

    Never owned one, but the ASR 7 was a very cool bike. I ultimately went Enduro last time I was in the bike market, and haven't looked back, but I'm a little sad that I will probably never get to have an ASR 7.

    Discontinued Bikes

    I own 2 discontinued bikes - Cannondale Prophet and Titus Motolite. Motolite still going strong. Prophet was retired to a place of prominance on my garage wall as industrial art.

    +1 on the MKIII! DW Link! Loved that bike. I, unfortunately, had the dreaded rear triangle crack.

    Not many truly old bikes listed here!

    How about the first truly effective FS design, the Cannondale Super-V? '96 Vintage single-pivot design that wasn't very different from what they were using a decade later.



    A little drilling, cutting, mix-and-match later and I've got a 30lb bike with 6" travel at both ends. Since that photo was taken I've added SLX cranks and gotten the fork rebuilt. The shock is getting PUSHed when my income tax return arrives, and then the bike is "done"!

    I need to take a picture from the drive-side to show off the 1x9 setup.
    '06 Cannondale Rush 1000 4" travel 27lbs
    '04 Cannondale F600 SOBE -STOLEN!
    '96 Cannondale Uber-V 6" travel 30lbs

    2007 Kona Coiler Deluxe. Now many companies come out with its geometry as something radically new and improved. 65.7 head angle with 160mm fork, 6" travel. DHX 4 coil shock. 13.7" BB. 23.2" top tube on medium. Perfectly sorted out.

    I still have it, with parts from other bikes upgrades to to keep as a spare - but did not ride it in a more then a year, with my other stable taking the riding time. Prolly should sell it.

    Haro Xeon.
    You either "got" the bike or you didn't.
    I understood and loved that bike... too bad Haro pulled up stakes in the MTB world.

    Tomac Snyper 140. Sad day when the whole company went under. Again.... If I had the cash I would have bought a spare for when mine died.

    I'd have to go with the Transition Preston. Probably the best short travel (5") AM/Freeride bikes I've ever ridden. It was a tank, but super stiff, and handled fantastic.

    I got an XLT 1.0 that I converted to a singlespeed with a YESS tensioner. It's my go-to bike for all coastal canyon/mesa trail rides in So Cal.

    And for another nominee, my 04 Ellsworth Joker, which weighs just under 29 lb.s in a L frame and has 7" of rear wheel travel. I only ride it when I have a long climb in the ride.

    I just sold a new Haro Xeon "S" at the Seattle Bike Swap. Pretty incredible design, central BB pivot, and mad hydroforming!!!

    i like my intense slopestyle. 66 head angle and straight seat tube, fd compatible, 135 or 150 spacing. Got custom dropouts to slacken it out, sitting at 65 degrees for better handling of the steeps... great bike

    The Yeti ASR-7! I have had several all mountain bikes including a carbon Nomad and this bike is by far the best I have ever owned! I am so glad I never sold the frame while trying others! It was voted by BIKE magazine as the "most fun to ride AM bike" and that was over The Nomad and Enduro!favorite discontinued AM bikes?-p4pb9176078.jpgfavorite discontinued AM bikes?-p4pb9216575.jpg

    Trek scratch coil. Great beefy bike. The slash is a better all rounder but that scratch was a better descender and big hit bike.

    DirtVet,

    Hey....we have re-introduced the Hammerhead Bike Brand....our first model is essentially a 29er Version of the old Titus MotoLite. I used to work for Titus back in the day and always loved that bike!

    Check it here if you have interest Austin's Dirty Little Secret - Hammerhead Bicycles

    Thanks, Scott
