GT backwoods (from the mid 90s I believe)
Still enjoying it every day of the week.
(plus a few bmxs from my childhood that I can't remember)
This is self fulfilling and I can't imagine anybody else cares about my bikes. That said, I will limit to my mtn bikes just to humor myself:
84 Diamondback Mean Streak
87 Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo
90 American Comp Lite
90 Rodriguez AL 26 Mtn Tandem
91ish Raleigh bonded bike XT group (can't remember model)
97 Kona King Kikapu
98 Kona Custom Ku
01 Kona Stinky Primo
41 Schwinn DX (new to me)
Either my priorities have changed or I am way overdue for a new bike......
1) Red & White Tricycle - Circa 1966 to 1968 ?
2) 1st Bicycle - Purchased in France ~ Circa 1971 ~ 1st Grade
3) JcPenny w/ Banana Seat , Skinny Front Tire, Slick Tire Rear - Bright Orange ~ 1973
4) Dolphin 300Z 10 Speed - Lugged Steel Frame, Shimano Components ~ 1978 to 1990
- This was one of the millions of Japanese road bikes from this era, but well made.
- I road this everywhere and used for daily college transportion
5) Used Raleigh Technium Mountain Bike ~ 1990 to 2005 (built from box of components)
(didn't ride seriously during this , but rode around with kids, etc))
6) Very Used Specialized Rockhopper Frame - circa early 2005 (late 90's frame)
- components from the Raleigh, frame accepted larger tires ... updated
- serious riding trails every Thursday night w/ local crew from bike shop
7) 2006 - Jamis Dakar XC Comp (late 2006 ... '06 closeout at LBS)
8) 2007 - Jamis Dakar XCR Frame (warranty replacement for XC above)
9) 2006 - Jamis Satellite Road Bike (1st road bike since 1990)
10) 2007 - Jamis Dragon Frame
- closeout '06 ... transferred components from Specialized
Next steps ... I've made quite a few component upgrade to the Satellite road bike. Soon it will have Shimano 105/Ultegra level components. I'd like to stay with the Dakar XCR, but my next bike could be an all mountain bike with a little more travel. In addition, the ride club is trying to talk me into cyclocross this year. I'll use the Dragon for now, but a cyclocross bike may be in the future. 10 bikes in 44 years, 4 in the last 3 1/2 years.
The comment by Aemmer likely true ... "I can't imagine any else cares about my bikes" ... it was fun and rather funning looking in the rear view mirror for a few moments.
Happy in Happy Valley
My personal list:
1) Red and white tricycle
2) John Deer pedal tractor (Bad A**)
3) 20" Ross Mt. Murray, late 80's model? Red, 3 speed.
4) 24" Diamondback of some kind. Another late 80's model 7speed?
5) 26" Mongoose sycamore, 21 speed 1997 model
6) 26" Marin Juniper Trail Al Hardtail. 2001 model. 27speed and still my main trail rider.
7) 27" Italian road bike from 1974. Hand me down, was my mother's when she was 15. Gone as it became too small for me.
8) 27" Peugot 130 road bike 1986 model-- Craigslist piece of garbage. Still have it but havent ridden it since I bent the rear axle on a pothole on my commute. Heavy as hell.
9) 27" 70's Viscount-lambert. Another craigslist special, but has worked out much better then the peugot. my current commuter/road bike.

'59 ish 1st bike I purchase. Schwin, 3 speed, springer front end. road the hell out of this in middle school in South Central LA . I could beat the gangs to the corners and was home free.
big gap after I found out about cars and girls.
'64 met a girl with italian/campy bike. love the bike! I bought a Raliegh International, full campagnolo and sew up tires.
'69 drafted, found out about motorcycles and women.

I've been riding 8 years and had 3:
1999 specialized rockhopper
2002 intense tracer
2006 kona unit
Crazy the number of bikes people have gone though!
Don't remember my childhood bikes - they were rusted-out POS garage-sale $10 bmx-style bikes that I had to make rideable (some with bananna seats too and tall bars. One of them was a girl's bike with a two speed internal rear hub that shifted when you tapped the coaster-brake. It prolly weighed 40 lbs.
1992 Diamondback Sorrento Chromo-steel rigid bike (Cantilever brakes could not control my descent speed!) learned to MTB on that one - saratoga gap and other trails in norcal.
Skipped the hardtail and went straight to full-suspension:
1998 Diamondback V-6 - not bad - v-brakes, 80mm judy XC long-travel (sucked). Wife just made me sell it a year ago..
