    That one bike you wished you never would have sold....

    Hey everyone,

    I was doing a little reminiscing and was thinking about my past bikes that I sold years ago to "upgrade". Some of which I wish I still had.

    What is that bike you sold or got rid of that you wish you still had?

    Mine was my 07 Kona Coilair Supreme....I had no other way to get an engagement ring for a girl I was dating. The whole thing nded up falling through so I was out a bike and a girl.

    I just recently found a 07 Coiler Deluxe in real good shape and ended up buying it. Should be here this week!!!

    the last two bikes I sold. in fact. the first was an 07 Scott Voltage. It just had the perfect geometry for a tank/commuter. weighed 44 pounds. but was just a sled.I got ran over on it and still rode it home. sold it to a good friend who put it to DAMN good use. So I cant miss it too much. it makes him happy on a daily basis.

    The other was a 92 Rockhopper. Teal and Purple. awesome bike. sold it to a friend and began building it up with new kit. his A/C started on fire and torched the bike down.

    the good news is I got a NEW 95 rockhopper recently. so its like I got part of it back. now if I could only find another DJ bike with that geometry. I'd be happy.

    1) Surly Karate Monkey - was a perfect fit, and really fun to ride.
    2) 2008 Turner RFX - the last of its kind, unbreakable, plush and saved me from disaster countless times. Its still with a friend. I may just get it back.

    Not only an awesome bike, but ended up being a collectable after the company that produced them went out of business.

    99 GT XCR LE with the optional long travel coil shock in back. I sold it and was out of a bike for awhile instead of parking it and hopping back on later.

    That one bike you wished you never would have sold....

    1983 Kuwahara Survivor BMX. I sold it after several years of not riding it to keep my first car on the road, in 87'. I've sold several bikes since but only regret letting that one go.

    A 1983 panther bmx. My first new to me bike. Learned a lot on that bike it went everywhere with me. And somewhat strangely a Louis garneau hardtail. It was a frame break replacement rode it a few times and sold it as I didn't need another hardtail. Fit perfectly handled awesome. Still think about that bike a lot. Had a number of other bikes that have been and gone with no regrets.

    I guess I wish I had kept the Storck. But it was a dumb XC hardtail. could have turned it into a commuter I guess.

    my 09 diamondback sortie. I loved that damn thing, it just fit right and would take a beating.
    I sold it for a blur lt2.1 and regretted it from day 1.

    I regret that my Prophet MX died, it went away, but I didn't decide to 'get rid' of it.

    Does that count?

    After 6 years of thinking I would never again be able to find me another 2007 Coiler, I found this one for one heck of a steal Its not exactly the same as my original one, but it will for sure do the trick!!! I dont think I have ever been so excited to get a "new" bike as I am about this one. I think its just all of the memories associated with my first 'big' bike. Cant wait till it shows up in the mail tomorrow.
