    2004 Gary Fisher Tarpon. Such a solid bike. Throw back to my gel seat toting, reflector rocking, V brake days....miss the heck out of that thing.

    It was a GT Aggressor, polished bare metal finish. It had big fat aluminum tubes and welds stout enough for a Mac truck. I thought it was the coolest bike ever made. Rode that bike through multi day adventure races.

    It was a fluorescent lime Shasta rigid circa 1989 that promptly was stolen. I ended up with another one except it was orange.

    Mine was a 92 or 93 Specialized Rockhopper.....I still had it and then moved out of my friends house about 8 years ago to move out of state and couldn't fit it with my other stuff.....I think he gave it to his brother or something, kind of wish I would have kept it....it was Purple with Yellow decals.

    In 83 I had a specialized rockhopper, it was stolen then I had a trek antelope I think and it was stolen too. Then in 84 I think, I got a specialized stump jumper that I rode for a lot of years. I still have it. Not riding it. Looking at maybe getting another stumpy. Have an epic now.

    I spent most of my younger yrs riding BMX bikes; I had a Diamondback Viper and an '97 GT Mach 1. I beat the crap out of those bikes in the trails, jumping everything I could. Once I outgrew those, I got an awesome Roadmaster from Toys R Us; that bike got a bent rim, and just destroyed as well, and I ended up giving it to a friend. Next I went to Wal-Mart and bough a Mongoose F/S bike (first F/S), and I ended up breaking the cassette off, and the rear shock spring. Next, I went to ***** where I bought another Mongoose F/S bike (my current one) and I'm using that unitl I destroy it, or save up money for a REAL F/S Mt/XC bike.

    I ride HARD, I jump everything I can, go fast, and go through everything; I don't have high expectations of my current rig and hope it holds up long enough for me to save for a real bike. I LOVE F/S bikes, so whatever I get WILL be one of those.

    1993 Diamondback Sorrento. I was 10 years old and MTBing was almost as cool as roller blading.

    later in its life I turned it into a single speed. It was stolen while I was at college in 2001

    Crappy Diamond back which my parents gave somewhere between 1995-1996. It was bad but I had fun with it until it got stolen on 1999.

    A red Skykomish Marble Point purchased from Costco in '91 or '92.
    After only a few rides I was hooked on mountain biking but realized the bike was too small so it was quickly replaced by a 1992 Giant Cadex CFM-3 which still sees regular trail use to this day (albeit the only original parts are the frame and fork).

    An Ironhorse warrior disc. I bought it at ***** around 2002 and rode it to death. I am adding a few small things to it and making it rideable again.

    Not counting the Huffy I had, the first "real' MTB I had was a Schwinn. I forgot the model, this was around 20 years ago. My parents were sick of me wrecking cheapo bikes, and since I rode alot, they got me a good bike for my birthday that year. Prior to that, I always thought of "bike store bikes" as exotic.

    Unfortunately thar bike was WAY to big for me, and I couldn't really ride it effectively when I started doing actual trails. So my next bike, right around the time I turned 16, was a Univega Alpina 5.1. I really liked that bike, I rode the snot out of it for two years.

    After that I bought the Marin I talk about in my Newbie check-in post.

    1982-ish Schwinn Sidewinder. Not a real mtb by today's standards - more of a transition to a mountain bike. Got stolen my Freshman year at college (1988), and was replaced by a Giant Iguana. The Iguana was an entry level all-rigid bike, but it took a pounding. From Moab to Planet X (Auburn, AL).

    Well my first mountain bike was a hand-me-down Motive Stonegrinder...basically a shaddy walmart bike. But then a friend loaned me his nice KHS hardtail for a couple rides and I knew I needed to get a real bike. He hooked me up with his friends 1996 Gary Fisher for $180. I rode it for years and then sold it for $150. I regretted selling it so much I picked up a similar bike, a 1998 HKEK for $180. I slapped a Tora coil fork on it and it really rides great...gotta love those old steel hardtails!

    I had a Giant and a Scott but can't remember the names, then a Schwinn Frontier, but what'd I'd call my first mountain bike was a 2002 Specialized Rockhopper, got it in 6th grade and beat the hell out of it on roads and trail all the way through senior year of college until it was stolen. I loved that bike. By the end, it was nearly in shambles - untrue rims, fading brakes, rusted chain, completely faded grips, a paint job almost completely chipped off - yet I could still ride the crap out of it. Definitely my most prized possession. It will be missed.

    First mountain bike was a mid 90's KHS. I remember the color being a bluish green or bluish purple. Anyone knowledgeable about older KHSs? It was stolen by punks after only a couple years and I didn't get another bike until college.
