    Shimano 500 hubs
    FMF wheels, post, and bars
    Bob Reedy pedals

    wow some people have had lots of bikes

    i have had like road bike for about 5 to 6 years

    then cheapish mtb for 5 to 6 years

    then giant mountain bike for last 10 years

    know will look for a new bike

    so i suppose i more into keeping one bike for at least five years of more before buying a new one

    esp since these days there isn't much difference between last years model and this years

    but you def notice difference if replace every five years

    Golly. This should be fun

    .First Bike:

    1956. Brand new schwinn coaster bike. Soon became "the old grey bike" without fenders. I rode that thing everywhere for years.

    Road Bikes:

    1967. Schwinn Le Tour
    1986 Cannondale road bike...60 cm metalflake green
    1987 Cannondale 58 cm touring bike
    1995 Cannondale 58 cm CAAD 3 (Awesome Crit bike...still have the frameset sittin in the garage).
    1996 Dave Moulten 59 cm FUSO custom road bike (steel was a little heavy, but I wish I had kept this one)
    1997 Dave Scott Ironman 60 cm road bike (bought used from a friend).
    1997 Litespeed 58 cm roadbike (ultegra)
    1998 or 99 full Dura Ace Cannondale CAAD 7 prototype from our Cannondale sponsor with their first integrated bottombracket and headtube.

    Mountain Bikes:

    1990 Giant rigid Iguana...purple
    1992 Fisher Hookoo Ikoo rigid (gave it to my younger brother in '95.
    1996 Specialized FSR. Carbon. Awesome bike...steering was a little too quick and sketchy.
    1998 Merlin hardtail fully custom XTR bought used from a friend for 1k (a steal).
    1998 Cannondale Raven FS. Bought used. Nice bike but heavy.

    Track Bike:

    1998 Fuji fixed gear track bike.

    Alas...after a loooong layoff, all that remain are the CAAD 5 frameset, the litespeed roadbike, and the merlin hardtail, (now outfitted with a thudbuster and riserbars to protect my aging butt and back.).

    Oh man I don't know if I'll be able to remember them all. This is the best I can do, in chronological order.

    -Schwinn kids' BMX bike with an awesome orange flag on the back and a nut saver foam pad. Baller.
    -Schwinn Frontier - Got me into cycling really.
    -Giant Sedona SE. First front suspension bike. Turned it into a race bike eventually.

    Then I started riding for Cannondale....

    -Cannondale R600, blue. First true road bike.
    -Cannondale F1000SL CAAD4 - Headshock sucked, and I outgrew it in a year.
    -Cannondale Saeco edition CAAD3 road bike. Beautiful bike, Dura-Ace everything, I loved that machine. Wish I still had it. Silver road parts are so rare anymore.
    -Cannondale F4000SL CAAD4 - XTR everything, carbon lefty with electronic lock out, disc brakes. Best MTB I've ever owned. Sold it when I went to college... that was stupid.

    --- We moved while I was in high school and that caused a huge break ---

    -2003 Trek 4500 MTB - Bought it used in college to go back and forth to class.
    -2009 Gary Fisher X-Caliber 29er - My current MTB. Loving the 29er thing and the Fox fork.
    -2011 Cervelo R3 - Best road bike I've ever had the pleasure of throwing my leg over. Astounding ride.

    way too many to list, but i will try and remember some..

    big wheel..probably had at least 5 of them (i kept wearing out the front
    early 80's free spirit "bmx" 20" when i was 5..the bike that started it all
    toys r us "bmx"
    hutch pro..fully custom. my first real bike, built it when i was 11. wish i still had it.
    gt mach one
    gt pro series
    parkpre mountain bike, i think it was a catalyst ( my 1st mtb)
    roughly 25 lowrider bikes. that was a huge hobbie in middle school, and high school. some of the better, more memorable ones would be..
    1976 schwinn stingray
    1969 schwinn stingray
    1968 schwinn sting ray
    1960's hawthorne
    1967 schwinn stingray
    1965 schwinn stingray
    1963 schwinn stingray ( first model year ) still have it!!
    1998 schwinn hydramatic comp, full custom
    1998 schwinn prostock 2, spare parts build
    1998 schwinn moab 2, my re-entry into MTBing
    1998 schwinn s-20, first full suspension
    2000 schwinn automatic, full custom..

    i took about a 11year hiatus from bikes, but recently got back into it, also got the wife and daughter into riding!

    now the stable bikes..

    2011 eastern growler bmx, semi custom
    2009 giant brass 2, small frame, some mods for now
    of course my 1963 sting ray

    2004 haro escape 8.1 ( the wifes )

    2004 specialized hardrock, xs frame, some mods for now ( my 9 year old daughters)

    when i was a kid, the owner of my lbs used t let me help at the shop, in trade for bike parts, then after high school, i got a job there, and became manager. that explains all the schwinns in 1998 to 2000. that was probably one of the best jobs ever! granted, i never brought home a full pay!

    If I were to list every bike I have ever owned I would need my own thread...these are just most of the MTB's Ive owned the past 20 years or so, its by no means complete and excludes almost all of the BMX bikes I've owned.

    Huffy with nut-saver foam pad
    Another Huffy(I think) with car-like speedometer and shifter (loved that thing)
    Next "full suspension"
    06 Hardrock
    85 Schwinn Traveler (missing it)

    07 Stumpy
    89 Rockhopper (frame and fork; super excited to build it up!)
    Trek 2.3 roadie (might sell soon; I find it uncomfortable - too light, twitchy, tires too skinny)

    Might've left out a few childhood bikes

    -A blue and yellow 24'' Huffy fs (still as a kid, no hard riding so it lasted)
    -Full size but small frame '05 Trek 3900 26''
    -Orange 2010 Trek 3900 21" frame
    -'11 Marin Bolinas Ridge 29er (sold for the next)
    -And my current is a black '12 Trek Mamba

    Let's see -

    Small bike - with training wheels.
    Banana seat bike - built from the pieces the bike thief down the street Dad made him throw out. It was a huge pile of frames, forks, wheels, etc. I used my older sister's bike as a pattern and kept going back and forth to get the pieces I needed. Used my Dad's tools to put it all together.

    Schwinn SX 2000 - bought the frame from a friend, used lawn cutting money to complete it, raced BMX at our local track on it
    Raleigh Ten speed - thrown away when our neighbors moved, rebuilt
    Schwinn Beach Cruiser - used to deliver news papers
    Mid 80's - driver's license, bikes went into shed

    Jamis Lightfoot - the first mtb I ever saw, bought it from a friend, rode it to class in college, easily weighed 50 lb.
    Cannondale F200 - my wife bought it for my birthday, I upgraded everything on it over the course of the next couple of years
    Litespeed Hiwassee - friend found it in a bike shop about an hour away, it had sat unsold for two years, got a deal, swapped the parts from the Cannondale, still riding it after many, many upgrades

    The one I miss the most was one of the first carbon fiber Kestrels, from back in the 80s when the company was owned by Schwinn. It was one of two bikes ridden by Mark Allen in his winning Hawaiian Ironman race. Bought it at the local school's auction, as the Schwinn family had a daughter in class there. Great ride, daughter enjoyed it too, until it was thieved. Oh well.
