I am almost 20 so that makes a little more than a bike every other year, I get team bikes this year so I am not too sure how many I will be adding but it looks promising.
- Huffy Dragster, not my first bike, but the first I can remember. My Mother tells me I T'boned the neighbor's car on it not too long after I got it since it was really too big for me Conveniently I don't remember that.
- Columbia BMX Bike, rode the heck out of that thing.
- Schwinn Tandem yellow tandem my sister and I rode around with, cool generator lights and all.
- Mongoose SuperGoose 24" wheels, so good that my Mother put some smooth tires on it and rode it for years when I was done with it.
- 1987 Cannondale SR400 Sold when I bought the F3000, now I wish I'd kept it.
- Mid 90's Gary Fisher Mt. Tam Polished frame, great for a month till I broke the frame. LBS gave me a credit towards the F3000.
- 1996 Cannondale F3000 Magic crank, XTR, Syncros Ti, Spinergy Rev X Rocks, all the good stuff. My Brother in law now has it but I have dibs on buying it back if he ever sells it.
- 2000 Cannondale F5000SL Another one I should have kept.
- Schwinn Tandem, yellow just like the one my sister and I rode as kids, bought it at a garage sale for $75, restored it with steel wool and degreaser, repacked all the bearings and rode it a couple of times and scared the crap out of my GF, sold it on eBay for $300.
- 2005 Cannondale Prophet 1000 Should have gone FS sooner.
- 2006 Cannondale R800 CAAD 8 Road. Down to 16 lb. doesn't resemble stock anymore.

6. Redline Monocog - custom painted pink, it was sick bird!
7. Giant TCR 2 - 2005
8. Kona Kula Primo - 2006
Not that many bikes, but I am not even eighteen so...
1998 trek 720 hybrid - for the road
1998 gary fisher big sur hard tail
2000 klein mantra race my first fs bike
Little red fire engine (not a bike, but the first set of wheels I remember)
Bright orange banana seat bike
A few 10/12 speed bikes before I regained my senses and got back to the dirt.
Then there are the bike I bought or built up
1996 - Kulahara Mesa
1998 - Diamondback Ascent
2000 - Kona Hardtail (name ???, but white paint with color speckles throughout)
2000 - Specialized HardRock
2001 - Stinky Dee-Lux
2002 - Ellsworth Joker
2002 - Giant NRS
2002 - Airbomb Nukeproof Hardtail
2004 - Ellsworth Joker
2004 - Specialized BigHit DH
2005 - Giant Reign
2005 - Giant Trance
2005 - Iron Horse 7 Point 7 (frame too large)
2005 - Santa Cruz VP-Free
2005 - Iron Horse 7 Point 5
2005 - Iron Horse MK III Expert (current XC/AM ride)
2006 - Santa Cruz Nomad (current AM/Freeride bike)
You may notice that I now like the virtual pivot type bikes. For the record the Iron 7 Point bikes are the best Freeride bikes I have been on. They pedal expeptionally well, soak up all the bumps, mine was just too heavy as I had it setup with a full on DH/Freeride build, it was cheaper and easier to look for another frame rather than to try to drop the weight on the 7 Point and still keep it slack and plush.
The VP-Free is an excellent park bike, but you don't want to be pedalling it too far. The Nomad is close to the 7 Point bikes in terms of pedalling and taking the bumps, but I was able to drop a good 4 lbs with pretty much the same component build. The build I have on my Nomad puts it around 37-38 lbs, it is still pretty heavy but perfect for what I ride. I also have second set of wheels/tires that drop it to around 34-35, should I want that epic all day singletrack, techincal XC ride.
That's my ride list. I reckon that the Nomad and the MK III will remaing as the current rides, as I can't image any other bikes working better for the type of riding I like to do.
1) Columbia Playbike 88, 20" wheels, sissy bar, banana seat, 5 speed stickshift/SA hub, 1968-1973
2) Murray Eliminator clunker, 10 speed Tourney, 1973-1979
3) Raleigh Chill MTB, 18 speed Deore, 1985-1987
4) Schwinn Super Sport road bike, 18 speed 600, 1987-1990
5) Fiorelli Campionissimo road bike, 21 speed Chorus/Dura Ace, 1988-present
6) GT Talera MTB, 21 speed STX-RC, 1993-1997
7) GT Pantera MTB, 24 speed Deore XT, 1997-2003
8) Motobecane Fly MTB, 27 speed Deore XT, 2003-2004
9) Leader 735 road bike, 27 speed Ultegra, 2003-2005

Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.
I have owned an inordinate number of bikes in my lifetime (too many to list) but one of the most memorable would be my CCM Mustang chopper which was THE ride to have if you were a kid growing up in Canada in the 70's.
I re-organized the garage and shop today so I'd have room to keep the current herd...
1955 Peugot PLX 10 Grande Tourisme
1955 Mercury 10 speed (English)
1960's Peugot 10 speed (stll seeking some ID on this one)

5) GT Mach One - 1988
6) SE Quadangle - 1990? Pieced it together from friends stuff. I wish I still had it, growing up Quadangles were always the coolest.
7) Dyno 24" Cruiser - 1996, broke collarbone, sprained wrist and back, stitches on eye when the stock front wheel folded on a 20' double, I now make sure I have good wheels on everything
8) Fuji mtn bike - 1998

1983 - something my dad bought from grand auto store that had 5-star mag wheels (did my first wheelie on it, immediately after i learned how to bail before you land on you neck while attempting to wheelie)
1986 - some 10-speed from kmart that managed to last me 5 years without oiling the chain
1991 - some toys-r-us mtn bike that i replaced stickers and convinced everyone i had a giant iguana... which got stolen when i was in the driver's training trailer on a saturday morning.
1994 - rigid aluminum trek mtn bike with grip shifters. i think it was the first year grip shifters were offered from trek. surely biking wouldn't get any better than this!
2000 - spec rockhopper pro... 80mm of rock destroying suspension!
2003 - santa cruz heckler... somehow its the biggest but lightest bike i've owned since the raider's last superbowl win
My list is pretty short, but I've loved riding each of these bikes...
Nishiki Sport - Sold.
Bianchi Strata LX - Retired and sitting in my garage, but rode heavily before getting hooked on mountain biking.
2001 DiamondBack XR1 DBR - Ride every other day
2006 Titus Moto-Lite (Aluminum) - I broke the swing arm mount on frame. Titus is repairing.
2006 Titus Moto-Lite (Titanium) - Ride every other day

Whew, that was a lot of work. I think I'll lay down now.
Murray 24" BMX Cruiser in about 1982
Kmart-special hot pink and neon green MTB in about '90-'92
Sears branded "cross"(training) bike with MTB style and road wheels in '93, rode that thing all over Seattle when I first moved here.
Blue Shogun MTB, bought from Play It Again Sports in Northgate in '94, my first messenger bike and it came with those silly Scott MTB aero bar things (which later got cut off to about 20" wide for serious high speed whitelining)
Some kind of Diamond Back MTB, was neon orange when my friend bought it from a pawnshop at first and Pike, then he painted it rattle can green. Under heavy messenger work the rattle can got roughed off by constant locking and banging and the bike ended up a lovely multi-layered orange/green/bare steel mix. Lasted forever.
Kona Hahanna full rigid, tan, with the original Project Two fork. Great bike. Bought used from a friend mostly stock, ended up spec'ed with full XT and Syncros group with a CK threaded headset (purple, of course) before it got run over in Seattle's beautiful Lake Union neighborhood. It gave it's life for me, as that accident was the closest I have ever come to death (that I know about).
GT Avalanche, brushed aluminum, with a Ritchey rigid steel fork and the surviving remnants of the group from the Hahanna. Purchased for me by the driver in the above-listed accident's insurance company. Sold when I switched jobs and need some scratch, still regret selling the Syncros tubular cranks, seatpost and bar ends that were on it.
Kona Fire Mountain, red, the last year they were steel. Another great Kona frame, lasted through two years of messenger work, ended up full XT/LX with Salsa highlights. Replaced the crappy R(eally)S(uspect)T(echnology) fork with a Project Two rigid.
Iron Horse SGS Sport ('03). First freeride bike, not bad. Broke the frame after two seasons.
Kona Smoke Commuter. Yet another great steel Kona, still have this bad boy, which just became nearly all XT.
Iron Horse Yakuza Waka-Gashira. Not bad for a freeride hardtail, but ultimately too piggy to do it all. Sold it last September and still in the market for an All Mountain bike that can handle freeriding.
Iron Horse Yakuza Kumicho. Good in a way, but too big for me. As an aside, I will never buy another single pivot bike.
Fetish Cycles Obsession DJ/park bike. Fun, light and single speed all the way!
'06 Transition Dirtbag, newest member of the family! It sports many aof the parts from the Kumicho, with Azonic Outlaw wheels and an X.7/Saint/RF Diabolus custom group.

Old-School Knight Rider themed Big-Wheel (plastic wheeled, plastic-bodied trike, direct-drive front wheel). I was TINY when I had this. 3 or so.
A huffy kids' bike for my 5th birthday (1984). Don't remember the model. All black and BMX styling without actually being a BMX bike. Had the number 7 all over it. Fixed gear, coaster brake. Ditched it when we moved in '88
Huffy Challenger. Typical cheapo 20" BMX bike. I got it for Christmas in 1986. I was still riding it in 1990. I don't know what happened to it.
Brown Raleigh Three speed. Old, probably late 70s. My grandfather found it on the side of the road (to be picked up by trash truck). I thought it was lame, but it was alright. I wonder if my parents still have it. Hmm... I got it in '90 but my dad made it his soon after since I didn't ride it.
Blue unknown-brand heavy-ass 10-speed road bike. probably from the 70's too. Same pile the raleigh was in. This bike was HOT STUFF for me. And it was fast as hell...until I tacoed a wheel in a pretty high-speed wipeout on gravel (I don't know what I was thinking riding it on gravel). '90 to '95.
Mt. Something x-mart mountain-bike. Mt. Hood? Mt. Horn? Mt. I bought-it-at-kmart. Whatever. First actual mountain bike. Put through hell and back. Got it in '94, stopped riding in '97 when I got out of high school (and then I got fat as hell, got married, etc). I broke it out in 2002 again, had to replace a bunch of stuff. Destroyed the freewheel rear wheel, needed new cables, new brakes, and the BB was disintegrating. Kept riding it, eventually BROKE the front wheel (broke a spoke, cracked and bent the rim, and tore the tire completely open) doing some off-road crap. Threw it away. I was done cycling.
2006 Next Power-X DS 26. Wal-mart. $60. Awwwww yeaah. August '06. Started commuting for fun and fitness. Broke the rear freewheel in about 6 weeks. Sold on craigslist for $25 as-is. I was hooked again.
'99 Diamondback Sorrento, late Sept. '06. $100 used at the LBS. Awesome bike. Just got in from my first snow/slush/ice commute. I've put a few hundred miles on it already. I love it to death! Still have it.
'98 Diamondback Outlook, Early nov. '06. Almost free on craigslist. Guy got it for xmas in '98, and then never, ever rode it. I replaced the cheapo freehweel rear wheel with a cheapo (yet more bulletproof) Shimano/Alex freehub wheel. Great bike at a great price. Still have it.
