    Good topic

    1972 and on:

    little red tricycle. I first lived in San Francisco near GG park, near the panhandle. I was 3. My mom used to let me ride around the sidewalk on the front stoop of the apartment. She would turn her back, and the first thing I would do is go ride it around the block. That would of course totally freak her out.

    I have a sister who is 9 years older than I am. I got her purple girls sting ray as a hand-me-down. I rode that for a while.

    I had a blue Raleigh Rampart BMXer, complete with yellow tuff wheels.

    Then a chrome redline, that got ripped off.

    Then a blue redline 102b.

    Then I got into freestyle. I got a Haro Freestyler. That was sweet. best bike yet. I got a drum brake from the local junk store and built it up with an araya gold ano rim, and ran it with those old Shimano motorcycle brake levers. Can you say crazy brake power wtih no modulation? I sure could. Complete it with CW bars and Oakley 3 grips.

    I then got a Schwinn Sierra, my first mountain bike, off a guy at school. It had a busted front brake boss, so I bought a Fisher fork back when they were still locally owned in San Anselmo (where I grew up). I rode that for a while, and it got ripped off.

    I have another sister who is 2 years older than me. After my Sierra was ripped off, she got a Mongoose chrome mountain bike, and soon after went to Germany on foreign exchange for a year. It was my size, so naturally I rode that bike for the year. That was a rad bike, but I did so many drops I bent the fork out. I bent it back with a long piece of pipe and kept on riding it. She rode it for a couple years when she went to Cal, but it was stolen.

    Raleigh USA Grand Prix road bike. Fun, broke my hand when a chain exploded on me and went OTB... good times. It now sits bolted to my trainer after I converted it to a fixie, since I'm too much of a wuss to ride it in the street.

    Then I got out of biking for a bunch of years.

    Then I got back in. I got a Giant Yukon in 2000. The frame is still in my basement. Great bike, but it rattled my teeth out.

    I caught the bug and went crazy.

    I got a K2 Razorback from some guy in Canada. Loved it, but it was too small for me.

    Aosty set me up with some parts and an old '90 Trek 9500 bonded alu frame. I made it a low-rent singlespeed. I painted it neutral 50% grey. Love it.

    I also built up a used Giant TCR road bike with Dura Ace 8 speed.

    The Razorback really needed replacement, so I got a used '03 Stumpjumper FSR-XC frame. Love it.

    Missing the sheer crazy speed and lightweight of a hardtail, I built up the Yukon as a light bike. I found it was also a tad small, and rode really harshly, so I found a used Supergo Access frame, and built that up. Its now my race hardtail.

    So currently in the stable:

    '03 stumpy
    Access hardtail
    Giant TCR roadie
    Trek 9500 rigid SS
    Raleigh USA Grand Prix, built as a fixie.

    My wife's bikes:

    Giant Boulder with slicks for street
    Specialized Stumpjumper S-Works hardtail... currently getting painted.

    SE Racing PK Ripper Looptail,

    ah...the SE Racing PK Ripper was a classic, one of the first, if not the first BMX frame made from aluminum. I thought the Quadangle was pretty cool as well.

    • Team Murry BMX freewheel
    • PK Ripper BMX

    • 95 Specialized Rockhopper Comp

    Get comfortable.

    I am officially a bike whore so there are many This list starts at 28 years old but I can't remember the earlier ones.
    1) Gary Fisher Montare(too big)
    2)Fisher Mt. Tam Polished(sweetest HT ever)
    3)Fisher Joshua (total pile bent within a year)
    4)Mc Mahon BUFF (total pile Broke 3 times in year and a half then he folded so I lost the $$$)
    5)Cdale hardtail (bought too small)
    6) Foes Weasel ( sweet rig way ahead of it's time but broke the swing arm)
    7)Foes Fly ( too much travel too heavy but pedals well and I still have it )
    8) Ellsworth Truth (not enough travel only had it 6 months)
    9) GT I drive ( after seeing all my freinds brake thears I sold it)
    10)Cannondale Jeckyle (got a 1/2 off deal and it was a good bike but I wanted more)
    11)Intense Uzzi DH ( fun but heavy and flexy just to tide me over until My 5 Spot arrived)
    12) SM Bullit)still waiting for the 5 Spot so I tried the Bullit but too many single pivot quirks and it was too small but it's still sitting around in a box somewhere)
    13 5SPOT YEAH (best I've ever owned; 3 years and no problems
    14)Cannondale 1fg (I fell for the SS hype but I picked it up frame and headshock for $250 new with a dented down tube. I still own it and it's a great training tool but it aint fun
    15)Turner Route 66 ( plush, heavy with the same geometry as my Spot but it feels very different.
    15 Somewhere in there was a KHS cruiser with a 7 speed hub that was cool but outweighed my DH bike.
    I'm so happy with my 5 Spot that I'm not looking for any bikes right now but a short travel bike would be nice to try and I have a line on a Burner but I don't think I'd ride it much.

    I am trying to add to my small collection. I offered My night vision Monocular for someones old beater mountain bike with front susp. I figure some outdoorsman's greed will get the better of him. Well I hope. LOL.

    Okay, I'll play...

    Lost in the mists of time are the childhood bikes, although I can remember the 20" bananna-seater with the sissy bar. I know I really lusted after the Raleigh Chopper with the gearshift on the top tube, though. If you've ever watched first-run Pink Panther cartoons on Saturday morning, you know the one:

    Fast-forward to the modern(?) era:
    1985 Raleigh 10-speed tourer (traded)
    1986 Trek 12-speed road bike (stolen)
