    Post Pictures of your Steel Bikes!

    I figured this will be OK in Passion since there is "some" love around here for steel.

    Since I got my first steel bike, I've fallen in love with these awesome bikes.

    Thanks for playing!

    Yeah, the second to last one was going to replace it but I'm not sure I can let go of it. It's a bit small but my daughter rode it when she was home so that'll give me a reason to keep it! But I will get rid of the Trek I was holding on for her to ride; it an old steel 820 I think; more of a comfort bike.

    The last one is my son's.

    Only use 3 of these regularly. Raleigh SS road bike was very much an impulse buy and not what I expected. I like riding single speed (both road and mtn.) but track fork on this bike gives it a very harsh ride. I could put a carbon fork on it but think I really want a nicer quality frame so will probably sell it. The old KHS (1993) hasn't been ridden in yrs. but after at least 30,000 mi. and lots of great memories I have no desire to part with it.

    Yeah, I have too many memories invested in this bike. I was looking through some old photos for my daughter and came across these. I've traveled with that bike more than any other. Also came across pictures of three bikes from racing that I no longer own; I don't miss them (well, maybe a little).

    2002 LeMond Poprad. Reynolds 853 OS. My favorite bike. This is a great riding bike. I've ridden only one carbon bike that rides as good. The TREK Boone.

    My latest frankenbike. Similarly, it's not worth all that much but I suspect I'll want to hang on to this forever. I'm already dreaming of painting it some sort of citrus orange/yellow color

    Now that one is in the wrong forum:

    Mountain Bike Manufacturer Forums > Custom Builders & Other Manufacturers > Steel is REAL Love

    But yeah, they could be combined, that one is still an active thread. I guess my Gunnars might kind of almost qualify as "custom builders" but not my Jamises (Jami?) nor the Lemond.

    Breezer Lightning 29er, still have and love the bike, but since I got the Stache it doesn't get ridden much.

    How dare you make a suggestion! Who do you think you are? Forums aren't supposed to evolve. They're supposed to stay in one static state until the end of time as we know it.

    Change is bad mmmk. I mean, do you realize how hard it is to scroll past a forum I have no interest in? The extra work load alone.. I'm not sure my scroll finger could handle such a task. It's horrible, very horrible I tell ya. You people and your big ideas are crazy!

    I should have taken a better picture, there was a carved bench on each side of the tree. Ran across it this Sunday as my buddy and I were exploring some unseen local trails.

    The bike is a 2018 Jamis DragonSlayer Sport 27.5

    2009 Haro Mary SS. Got it 7yrs ago for 200 bucks just for a bar bike. I love it now and ride almost as much as my FS. I have upgraded almost everything.

    it got really weird riding it the before way. but it was a lot faster going down hill before.

    I like my rear brake hanger. I had my braising stuff out and some old tools so I thought why not?

    Post Pictures of your Steel Bikes!

    When I was a roadie...

    1978 Charles Roberts Super
    Reynolds 531 double butted throughout.

    Upgraded and repainted in 1987.

    Campy SuperRecord bits and a Galli crankset (Campy clone).

    Last rode in 1997, the year I switched to dirt.


    BTW, gotta love the straight block freewheel! No way I could ride that now at 56 yo.

    On my current 29r, a 30 tooth chain ring is enough. Couldnít imagine a 34 like the pros ride.
