    Specialized Hardrock
    Cannondale F300

    1987 Huffy MTB of some sort. I don't remember much about it except that all the bmxer kids made fun of me for having such a huge bike.
    1988 Sears road bike. Painted it florescent orange. Had drum brakes.
    2000-2001 Giant ATX 850 (euro model) (quickly advanced beyond it's limits)
    2001-2001 Giant NRS 1 (too small)
    2002-2003 Cannondale Jekyll 800
    2002-2004 Cannondale Scalpel 800
    2003-2004 Cannondale F3000
    2003-2006 Airborne Thunderbolt
    2004-2006Airborne Liberator
    2004-2004 Specialized FSR Expert (didn't last long, never got comfy on it)

    2005 Redline Conquest Pro

    Move a lot in the military, so I've sold a bunch of stuff I wish I hadn't, currently down to the Liberator, the Kona, and the Redline.

    ROAD
    Bridgestone 600 (year ?) -stolen
    Giant Cadex (1991) -still have, works great


    MTB
    K2 4000 Proflex (1998) -unrideable front shocks and rear suspension linkage blown
    Cannondale Prophet 800 (2006) -current

    I also ride my wife's Specialized RockHopper hardtail from 1999.

    I'm blown away by all the different bikes some of you have owned. I tend to ride the same rig until it falls apart (had been riding the K2 since 2000).

    -10- 1997 GT Zaskar [1997-2003] built up frame, later converted to "hard core" bike
    -11- 1996 Bianchi Grizzly [1998 - 2001] built up the frame as a city/winter bike
    -12- 2000 Salsa Ala Carte [2000 - present] built up frame, now a SS
    -13- 1993 Miyata Team Miyata [2000 - present] built up with newer parts, still my main road bike
    -14- ~1991 Ross Mt. Hood [2000-present] the nasty weather commuter
    -15- 1996 Barracuda A2V [2001 - 2006] singlespeeded

    Jesse - these are every bike you've OWNED or every bike you've RIDDEN? 'Cause that's a lot of bikes to have owned. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    2. Orange Huffy 20" wheels
    3. 86 Diamondback bmx, with mags
    4. Schwinn Sidewinder 21 speeds, 26"
    5. 98 Dyno VFR
    6. 99 Dyno Zone (still have)
    7. 97 GT Mach 1
    8. 00 Fuji Nevada, cannibalized into a race bike (still have)
    9. Raleigh Technium road, pink and fixed (pissed that I sold)

    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.

    1. 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.
    2. Columbia BMX Bike, rode the heck out of that thing.
    3. Schwinn Tandem yellow tandem my sister and I rode around with, cool generator lights and all.
    4. 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.
    5. 1987 Cannondale SR400 Sold when I bought the F3000, now I wish I'd kept it.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
    8. 2000 Cannondale F5000SL Another one I should have kept.
    9. 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.
    10. 2005 Cannondale Prophet 1000 Should have gone FS sooner.
    11. 2006 Cannondale R800 CAAD 8 Road. Down to 16 lb. doesn't resemble stock anymore.

    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.

    Cheers

    Jeff
