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

What a wonderful exercise. Great bikes on here. It has been a long, blissful ride.

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.

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 check..lol!
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.

Recovered XC Rider:
1) 2006 Trek 4900 Disc - Great bike to train on, but weighed 33lbs. Sold it after 1400miles.
2) 2006 Cannondale F600 Furio - Lost 50lbs of fat, riding this bike. I have a new addiction.
3) 2005 Cannondale F2000 SL - Final XC race weight was 18.7 pounds, with 2x9 XTR crankset and Maxxis 310g tires. For "show" only...but climbed like a raped ape.
4) 2010 Giant Anthem X2 - 22.9 pound, "gravitating" Trail beast never ceases to amaze me. Very FAST downhill too:

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.
