    My list is very short. I didn't seriously get into cycling until 1997.

    Schwinn Moad - Hard tail
    Fat Chance Yo Eddy - very sweet bike - purple with pink touches - loved this bike and
    still be riding if the fork hadn't gone. Couldn't replace it for less than $500. Hubby insisted
  • 05-18-2007
    Oops! Didn't finish post.
    Anyway, my husband thot it'd be better to get a new bike rather than putting so much money into the Yo Eddy.
    Gary Fisher Sugar 2 Genesister - great bike, got Gary to sign it too. That was cool. This bike is for sale btw if anyone is interested.
    Bianchi Giro - very smooth ride - been riding it to work lately - love it
    Yeti ASR Race - my future MT bike. It will be pink and gray. I' m very pumped about it!

    Man you guys really burned through bikes. I can't believe how many you've owned. I got my first truck bike when I was 10 in 1962.

    That bike got stolen in 1968 but I found a 10 speed Schwin Varsity in the garbage that I still own and ride around the city.

    About 10 years ago I found a Magna mountain bike in the garbage and rode that in the parks of NYC.

    Just a few weeks ago my friend gave me a Schwin Impact. It's in such nice condition I hate taking it into the dirt so that's my new road bike. Once I get it dinged a bit more, I'll be stump jumpin with it.

    Wow! people tell me I'm nuts!

    Back in the 1960's we coveted a bike, a cruiser, called The President

    In the early 70's, a banana seat sting ray from Royce union, purple. Stolen from behind the baseball backstop, while I was playing catcher!

    In High school (mid 70's) I had an unknown english racer, 3 speed in ternal hub. When I tweaked the front wheel I replaced it with a 20 inch front, and rod it to football practice with no brake.

    A sears Free Spirit 10 sp for 100.00 bought with my own money. I painted it bright red, in the same garage my brother's freshly painted Harley frame was drying. When he saw the red overspray on the frame, needless to say, he beat the **** out of me!

    A 1981 Schwinn Varsity 10 speed. Did my first 40 miler on it

    Trek 1993 &50 hybrid, did my first MTB rides on. I took it to Gore Mt midstation with a friend, I went OTB every time we hit a waterbar. My brother in law still has the bike, all original parts.

    1995 Gary Fisher Montare. Aluminum frame , my first real sweet ride. First frame replacement,

    Raliegh R 600 - beastly harsh Al roadie. Set it up with a variety of new components after my 2nd frame relacement. Set it up with Heliums.

    2000 LeMond Zurich.. NIce comfortable supple steel. It took over the Heliums

    2001 Rocky Mountain Blizzard. Continuing the trend away from harsh mid range Al bikes. Sweet bike, still have it as my hartail. It has the Ti PG bar from my Fisherm and the bar ends. I broke the chain on this bike on it's first ride, the bent chainplate caught the derailleur and twited the der, hanger 180 degrees, first ride! My LBS still shakes his head at that!

    2006 Kona Kikapu Deluxe bought just 2 weeks ago. Sweet setup, first dual susser, a present to myself for my pending 50th BD.
  • 06-03-2007
    Red single speed kids bike with weird friction brake. Came from ToysRUs.

    Mom's blue 3 speed. It was way too big for me for a long time, but a bike for me wasn't in the cards.

    Ross BMX. Hand-me down from a friend.

    Red Sterling 10 speed. Stolen. (I mean, it got stolen from me.)

    Cyclepro Ambush. This was just about the first thing I bought when I moved to Texas, for $118. Basically a 1990 model hybrid with 26" wheels and 18 speeds. Thumb shifters, bolt on rear wheel, and ovaltech chainrings. Tons of commuting miles on this baby.

    Diamondback Response Sport. First 'real' mountain bike I ever owned. Supposedly an 18 inch frame, but it was really too big for me. Rock Shox Quadra 10, Shimano STX, my first rapidfire shift bike. True Temper 4130 butted cromoly. Great blue color.

    Balance XR 750. I bought one of these frames online, It was purple, but the tubing was Tange Prestige butted cromoly and the 16 inch frame fit me far better. Took most of the parts from the Diamondback and built it with a new '95 Rock Shox Judy XC and my first set of SPD clipless pedals. I still ride the pedals.

    '95 North Star Estrella. Little-known 'budget' brand bike. Frame was a 17" of Fuji Stout Lite cromoly. Full Shimano STX-RC group, Araya TM-18 rims, rigid cromoly fork. I bought this after I sold the Balance because I couldn't quite afford my dream bike yet. I have configured this bike differently over the years. For a while it had a white Manitou SX, then back to rigid, and now it has a '95 Judy with a Bontrager fork crown, XT shift / brake, LX 4 bolt cranks, and Deore XT center-pull cantilever brakes.

    '95 Raleigh R-600, 54cm. 7000 series aluminum frame, 105 kit. I paid a little too much. A fun bike.

    Vintage Ross road bike, stem shifters. My buddy had this in his backyard, abandoned by the previous tenant. Passed on it once, then took it home, added new cables and housing. When a pedal fell off (taking the threads out of the crank) a friend sold me his 105 cranks for $20. Great commuter bike.

    DK Fury, yellow cromoly frame. Play bike.

    '97 Bontrager Privateer S, size Medium. This will probably always be my favorite bike. I sold this to a young guy at a shop I worked at, then bought it from him for about 1/3 what he paid six months later ($280, which was all I could scrape up at the time; he needed the money). I wanted a Race very badly, but a Privateer was as close as I ever got (and I'm okay with that now). The burgundy color is pretty sweet. Besides the bar, stem, shifters, headset, rear derailleur, and (believe it or not) the fork, I've replaced every part on the bike. It has a threadless headset, 1" Control Tech stem, and a Marzocchi MX Comp 80mm standing by for the day I admit that the fork is trashed. The bike has 8 speed Deore XT front to back, except for a Race Face Taperlock bottom bracket, Control Tech derailleur pulleys, and a red Hadley / GT cnc rear hub. Pedals are Bontrager RE-1s, bar ends are Bontrager L-bend magnesium, post is a Zoom, and the saddle is a Selle Italia Bontrager in Italian leather.

    Giant Perigee road bike. Very early '90's, red. I bought this cheap out of the basement of a shop I worked at where it languished due to a tiny ding in the top tube and a missing rear derailleur. Down tube shifters, heavy cromoly frame (I think there's some cromoly in there). Wheels/brakes/shifters/brake levers are original. I added an anatomical bend handlebar, different stem, saddle, and the Ultegra 600 cranks. Lovely commuting sled.

    Jamis Dakar Pro (Team?). 17". Red is sexy. Easton Elite tubing, Cane Creek AD-8 air shock. I bought the frame cheap and built it with XT 9 speed, red label/ blue label rims, and a white ('98?) Judy XC. I used the older Deore XT v-brakes and levers because they rock. With Mythos XC tires it weighs in at 26.4lbs. Pedals are cheap CODA SPD, bar / stem are ICON grey.

    KHS Team ST. Black / sparkly gold, weird colors, 15" frame in True Temper butted cromoly. This one had the odd bend in the top tube and the f. der. cable routed down the down tube. I wanted to try a softtail and couldn't afford one made from TI, so I bought this for around $160. I really liked this frame. Built with XT and a 'Mt Dew green' Jett XC fork. It was fun to ride, but always a little short in the length for me.

    Diamondback Traverse. Cromoly frame, Alivio parts. A fixer-upper, a runabout. Cost me nothing but new cables and housing.

    GT BMX. Red, aluminum, another fixer-upper.

    '05 Diamondback Axis. 18" 7000 series aluminum frame, Race Face Evolve XC cranks, Marzocchi EXR Comp, 9spd LX and XT.

    '05 KHS Comp ST. 18" Alu front triangle, cromoly rear, 1" travel (if that), white/ black/ red. '99(?)Judy C fork, LX / XT 9speed kit, Race Face Evolve cranks. Fits me better than my old KHS softtail.

    '06 Giant TCR C3, new 9spd Ultegra group, FSA wheels, cheap bar/ stem. 18.1lbs, full carbon, the road bike I've always wanted.

    Schwinn Passage 52cm, early nineties or possibly late '80s, a blue road bike with downtube shifters. Still needs a new rear wheel and new cables, but should be fun.

    Schwinn Traveller, 57(ish) cm, late eighties, downtube shifters. Another fixer-upper. I'm cutting new cables, wrapping fresh cork, gonna' put some fresh grease in the hubs and then find a good home for it.

    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.

    Picked up an '06 Kona Coiler Deluxe to fit the AM need and it's working out spectacularly, and just replaced the Fetish with a Transition Trail or Park: I could never find my happy place with the Fetish and have always regretted selling my Giant '05 STP2 (I think I forgot to list that one, it falls between the SGS and the Kona Smoke) so hopefully the ToP will get me back there!

    9. Diamond Back Ascent piece of poo
    10. sweet three speed crusier
    11. another three speed crusier that one of my friends chopped and made into a full-susser...too bad the frame broke
    12. Centurion LeMans RS (don't know why I tried a road bike...)
    13. Got my Sierra back from the guy I sold it to, put a trek dds3 on the front! (It weighed alot more after that)
    14. '92 Trek 9000 that I traded a guy for after it went through a house fire...my first (real) full susser...DX all around except XT levers/shifters
    15. '98 GT Zaskar (bought frame from LBS to ride around while Trek was back at the factory having brake post re-welded)
    16. '94 Nishiki FS4 (got frame on ebay and built with parts from Trek, put Manitou Spyder-R on the front)..great ride till someone stole it
    17. '03 Raleigh RAM, deore rear der., lx front der., deore discs, alex rims, WTB raptors, Manitou Axel FS, Risse Astro 5 RS...I've owned it longer than any other ride (coming up on 5 years now...almost have the wife convinced that it's time for a new new one :) )
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane...

Only one set of bars though, some VDC Woody Itson Signature bars, I wish I still had those... Sold the bike after discovering MTBing

    This is a cool thread.

    Can't remember/name all the BMX bikes I had, so I'll just stick to mt. bikes

    In order of appearance:
    '86 24" Schwinn Enduro (5 speed)
    '88 Nishiki Colorado
    '89 Specialized Rock Hopper
    '90 Diamondback Apex
    '93 GT Avalanche
    '01 KHS Rigid One (now converted to DJ/SS status)
    '05 Giant Faith
    '06 IronHorse Yakuza Kumicho Type R
    '99 or '00 (not sure) Santa Cruz Heckler
    '05 Cannondale Prophet

    I kept out-growing/having to sell bikes until my dad hinted that I should probably just get a 21" frame if I was going to spend that much on a GT Avalanche. That bike lasted me from when I was 13 until I got to college, then my fat college, stair hucking, beer drinking butt finally destroyed the frame around the bottom bracket.

    Let's see, every bike I've owned?

    Big Wheel
    Rampart bike with training wheels and a banana seat
    Unknown bike from the early 80's that had mountain bike-like tires and BMX type handlebars (very strange, but my parents bought it, so I rode it until I crashed and cracked my two front teeth)
    Montague Paratrooper

    I guess I'm not a serious biker until now.

    My humble list:
    -Generic white bike from from my Uncle's unclaimed lost and found at the school he worked at.
    -1999 Religh M40...let my sister's boyfriend "borrow it"...never saw it again.
    -2000 Kona Pahoehoe...still have it, ride it all the time.
    -2006 Kona Coiler frame that was my first bike build. Awsome bike...i lov her so much.
    -2007 rescued a Univega road bike from the curbside. Fixed it up as a commuter/beer run bike.

    You guys make me feel like a pauper and a rookie.

    My stable as a grown up:
    Giant ATX 870- ultra rigid mtb. Sold it for cheap and regretted it.
    Cannondale Super V-700- very nice full susser that lasted 10 years till I cracked the frame. Warrentied for a...
    Cannondale Prophet (current bike)
    Nashbar steel frame built up to a bomber commuter (current)
    During the Cannondale years- I broke THREE GTs
    2 Zaskar hartails
    and a Team I-Drive. This one actually broke during a race.

    me too
    1st photos- Sorry for the double take on the Titus. Its an 2004 and I love it very, very much.

    2nd- This Giant was my second attempt to be a roadie. I had that bike for 2 months.

    3rd- The Schwinn was my 1st road bike. It lasted 3 months and after I sold it promised myself I would never, ever own another road bike again. (see my 2nd photo above)

    4th- The Stumpjumper was my 1st real true love and the reason I have wasted so much energy and time on cycling. I bought it for my 15th birthday. It was stock for several months. Piece by piece was replaced until it was just right for me. I kept it the longest (10ish years), even after getting the Titus. Love that bike.

    5th- I found this in a garage and bought it for 40 bucks. It rode like poop, I think it was way to small for me. I sold it for a profit and never looked back. But it looked great, eh?

    6th- This Cannondale was fantastic. It was so awesome even my wife liked it, and that's saying something trust me. I sold this one to get my Specialized SX freeride bike. Boy I miss this bike, almost more then the stumpy. I've got my fingers crossed for a BBQ 29er Cannondale, mmmmm.

    7th- This frame was given to me by a customer I met, cool guy. I've almost completed it. I just need to a seat collar to hold my seatpost and a front brake to stop the thing. I'm excited to get this thing going this summer.

    8th- I've had more fun on this bike than on all other bikes combined, seriously! Unfortunately I don't get to ride it as much as I should, but when I do its downtown Chicago and its a blast. Jumping off walls in the middle of traffic is like being a kid again, except now I have a bike that can bail me outta my bad riding skills. Love it.

    Bikes without photographic evidence;

    -Cannondale F3000SL (wow, this bike was light, really light. I thought I was Tinker riding this thing. It was a beautiful lime green color)

    -Kona King Kickapoo (my 1st Full Suspension bike. It lasted about 4 months, gave it back to the guy I bought it from. I thought it was okay but not as fun as the Cannondale. It was polished)

    -Yokota Yosemite (my 12th birthday present. I used it as a transportation, but it was my 1st mountain bike. It was a fade from blood red to pearl white. My older brother still has this bike)
  • 05-23-2008
    Ah memories...(click links for pics), my list is not huge, but:
    - red bike with square cut tires and training wheels. I remember the first time I rode it, went full speed into the garage door. I had the need for speed :p
    - blue garage-sale BMX with worn through tires
    - red CCM 'mountain' bike
    - neon green/yellow crackle paint Supercycle, yeah I was stylin'
    (If there is a Canadian on here that hasn't owned a CCM and/or Supercycle, I'd be shocked)
    - a dark blue Giant mountain bike, can't remember what year or model it was, but I'm positive it 'fell off the back of a truck'
    - 1996 Raleigh Legend. Rode this bike everywhere, delivered papers, did several 50+km trail rides on it. An encounter with heavy mud and a stick last year rendered it useless, thus it sadly went into the dumpster and was replaced with:
    - 2007 Kona Cinder Cone. This bike got me into XC racing, and I modified it heavily. Rode it for 8 months, sold it to my brother.
    - 2008 Norco CCX1. Got this in Fall '07 for road rides, commuting, and random muddy excursions.
    - 2007 Kona Hei Hei. Replaced the Cinder Cone as a step-up in XC racing. And it works as a fast trail bike.

    "Bike" being short for Bicycle... these THREE wheeled contraptions don't count. :p
  • 05-23-2008
    Had a few bikes before high school. The two I remember were a 20" Huffy like bike from Sears. I wanted it because it looked like it had shock absorbers in the back. Of course, when you looked at it, it was just some steel springs covering an immovable post. Eventually, my brother converted it into a BMX like bike.

    The next one was a 10 speed road bike, also from Sears. It carried me everywhere, soccer practice, friends, etc. I actually had a head one collision with a car on it. Thankfully the woman had stopped and I hit her. I eventually totaled it when I put the front wheel down a sewer grate and officially joined the OTB club. Jeez, I didn't even wear a helmet back then!

    After that, it was many years before I got back into biking. And my grand return was on....

    A Trek 930 (mid 90's) with a 7005 DuoTrack 'suspension' fork, that probably had a 1/2" of travel. The bike got me into mountain biking and a good place overall. I loved it. Note, the Duotrack was an evil device as it broke in my 1st race putting me in a figure 8 brace for 4 months. Not to mention the damage it did to the bike. However, those old Trek 9** frames were pretty much bombproof. Rebuilt it with the help of my brother while I was healing and put a Manitou Mach 5 on it, along with come Control Tech components, etc. It was great. I even put a dent in the top tube and the the thing kept on going. Eventually the FS bug bit me and I gave the bike to my cousin, who was going through a rough time. It ended up taking him to a good place also.

    I was in Grad school (going at night and working during the day). I was dating my (eventual) wife and she asked me if I was going to treat myself to something when I was done. I never really thought about it, but like I said, the FS bug bit me and I wanted a Klein Mantra. In the end, I realized I was going to get the engagement ring, wedding, honeymoon, etc.... Which I/we did. However, my fiancee bought the 98 Mantra. the thing climbed great, and when I was riding a lot and keeping my skills (what little I have) sharp, it was a blast. I ended up having the drive train and wheel set replace numerous times. I still have it, but I am finding the fast handling is beyond my skill set. My last ride on it launched me into a rock garden. Still have it, not sure what to do with it.....

    A few months ago, I was looking at the cost of rebuilding the Mantra (with the help of my brother again) and decided it was time for a new bike. Since my life has gotten extremely complicated, I wanted to get something simple. I was leaning towards a steel HT, but then I began reading up on the 29" rigid SS thing. My brother thought I was nuts (and he is probably right), but I rented a Haro Mary SS and had a blast. I shopped around and ended up with a 2008 Marin Pine Mountain 29er SS with a rigid fork. I've been riding the heck out of it and love it. I can even do some of my own maintenance (lube the chain).

    Not many bikes as some, but some really great times.

  • 08-03-2008
    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.

    Started with a custom-made white cruiser from my dad
    Then a huffy with no brakes, you had to backpedal. (Hipster!)

    1st bike I remember was a 3 wheel chain drive. loved this bike
    1st bike was a 24 inch murray, my sisters. i didn't care
    1st bike of my own was a light weight racing frame 3 speed, skinny tire, might have been a Puch. not a good bike for urban. lots of flats.
    '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.
    '82 found a clunker, only shifted into two gears.
    83 bought Japanese ten speed with the ovalized crankset.
    84 Poghliagi. full campy, got stolen. learned lessons here!
    86 bought another italian bike at Helen's full campy
    Gary fisher Hooko Eeko solid fork, fast bike on road. crashed off road.
    97 Trek Y2 f/s fun bike for commuting. I got more compliments on this bike!
    99 Specialized m4 hard tail. bad bike. could never get this to work.
    2005 Giant NRS 3 full carbon, XTR 1 1/2" travel fork. crashed many times.(my friends introduced me to single track) they all had AM rigs.

    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.. :(
    2000 Specialized Enduro Pro (bought in 01)
    2004 Specialized S-works enduro (bought in 05)
    2007 Specialized S-works Enduro SL (bought in 08)

    2005 Specialized Roubaix comp double (DA/Ultegra)

    That's all...
