    Most of my friends wonder why I have so many bikes and lo and behold, people who are similarily afflicted.

    So here's my list from the beginning:

    Red and white trike-I think just about everyone started with one of these.
    Yellow CCM kid's bike- All I remember about it is riding it off the dock into Lake Ontario
    3 speed banna seat thingy-stolen from the garage 'casue I was too lazy to carry it upstairs
    Kid's 10 spd road bike- I think it was Japanese
    Raleigh Record 10 spd bike-my main mode of transport through high school
    '90 Mongoose Iboc-my high school graduation "gift" which I ended up paying for
    '93 KHS Montana Pro- Stolen
    '94 Proflex 854
    '94 Miele Road bike-it was fushia and had 105 on it. That's all I remember about it.
    '95 Rocky Mountain Fusion- replaced the KHS
    '97 Spec FSR A1- the cheaper Taiwanese built FSR
    '97 Spec FSR Max- one of my favourite bikes, still have the frame
    '96 Brodie Expresso- looked great in dark purple with a yellow Noleen fork but what do I know, I'm colour blind.
    '9? Mantis Flying V- traded the Expresso for it, then sold it, then bought it back 2 years later. I still have it and I'm not parting with it this time .
    '97 Cannondale R1000-crashed into a Brinks truck with it. We both lost.
    '99 Santa Cruz Superlight-too whippy
    '99 Specialized Crossroads-don't know what I was thinking
    '9? Cannondale Super V Freeride-see above
    '0? Schwinn Super Sport road bike-got it just before they went bankrupt for the second time.
    '04 Rocky Mountain Turbo- in the proper red and white maple leaf fade paint job
    '04 Specialized Epic Marathon- anyone interested in buying it? 'Cause its replacement just came in(see bottom of list).
    '04 Kona Dr Dew- great city bike. And good on wine tours too.
    '04 Intense Tracer-a bit too big so it's for sale. If I get around to it.
    '07 Ibis Mojo- What can I say except wow, what a bike.


    25 bikes in 35 years, wow.

    Maybe my friends have a point...

    Of all the bikes I've had before.....

    - Sears - Convertable [removeable top tube] - 20" wheels - purple - cottered cranks [liked to fall apart] - 1973?

    - Sears - 24" wheels - coaster brake - hideous greenish yellow paint - learned how not to true a wheel - 1976?

    - Schwinn "Le Tour" - 27" wheels - 10 speeds - real aluminum rims - 1978?

    - Univega - ? - some kind of road bike - grey - 12 speeds - 700c wheels - 1985?

    - Raleigh - "Cross Country" - maroon - cruiser / mountain bike - 10 speeds - side pull brakes - knock off of an early Joe breezer design - 1985?

    - Specialized Rock Hopper - navy blue - 18 speeds - bio pace chain rings! - hite rite seat adjuster! - 1987

    - Specialized - "Cross Road" - white- hybrid, set up with specialized BB-1 copies of the original dirt drop handle bar - never could get those things high enough - 700 x 45mm panaracer smokes [at one point] - 1991

    - Schwinn - "Cross Cut" - Red - frame seemed stouter than the "Cross Road", limited tire choices. Fairly stout tho. - 1994

    - Supergo - "Access" - mountain bike - blue - manitou SRX fork, LX components - 2001

    - Kona - "Major Jake" - cyclo cross bike. Great bike! Too small. - 2003

    - Redline - Conquest Pro - cyclo cross bike. Better fit, harsh ride. - 2004

    - Gary Fisher - Mount Tam 29er - ahh, very comfy and confidence inspiring mtn bike. BB too low. Took it to Moab, very happy with how it worked - 2005.

    - Soma - "Double Cross" - cyclo cross bike - good fit with frame, had S & S couplers inserted - hope to take it traveling - 2006.

    - Soma - "Juice" - 29er. Great fit, good bb hgt, Titec licensed H-bars - 2006. Now if I could just get the hang of the horizontal drop outs!.

    People keep saying there is no perfect bike, now if I could just believe that!

    I added another bike to the collection this week and got to cross one of the "want / need" list to boot. She looks rather odd mixed in with all the modern bikes I have sitting in the shop and I suppose some of those bikes are getting a little jealous.



    It's a 1933 CCM men's coaster bike... the bearings and hubs have all been serviced and now all that's left is the restoration of the paint to it's original colours.

    All the original parts were intact save for the seat (but I found a decent Brooks saddle) and despite her scruffy appearance, she's a still a great ride at 74 years of age.

    even though some folks think i'm going back to the time before tires, here goes:

    no-name 16" cruiser, blue w/ travel stickers all over it (i'm not counting the tricycle that preceded it)
    schwinn stingray, green/white, shoulda kept
    huffy p.o.s. 3-sp cruiser, dark purple, possessed
    schwinn 10-sp, bought after riding it as a loaner on a weeklong bike trip south of Indy, loaned to buddy after buying first car, gave up on bikes for a few years when buddy paid me for the bike 'cause stolen/stripped
    murray complete p.o.s. 10-sp (26" skinnies!), damn near gave away to get rid of
    garage sale p.o.s. 12-sp w/ exercise bike saddle on it, rode it about 6 times before dumpstering it
    murray cruiser from wally, gave to bro-in-law after he dubbed it "the handicapped bike"
    huffy rigid that actually served its purpose before the frame fatigued and broke
    mongoose fs that my sister finally broke after i gave it to her
    pacific ht i still have, built up as a "ghetto cruiser"
    motobecane xb4 p.o.s. (khs fxt clone), broke frame in two places while commuting
    weyless sp, currently down for new paint
    jamis dakar xlt, new

    there was "the dark time" in the middle, between the 1st murray & the garage sale bike, about 10 years, when i was stupidly wrapped up in cars. never should have hung up the 1st schwinn 10sp....
    A bike is the only drug with no bad side effects....

    Let's see if I can remember. I remembered some that I had forgotten about as I read this thread. Dates are approximate.

    1970: Schwinn Stingray. I had a few of these as I kept breaking them and they kept replacing them.
    1975: BMX bike. I can't remember the brand, but it had a top tube that was almost a straight line from the head tube to the rear axle. The seat tube stuck up to far and I cracked it there, but the local metal shop teacher welded it for me.
    1977: Schwinn ten speed with 24" wheels.
    1980: Robinson BMX bike.
    1982: Cheap Bianchi roadbike.
    1984: Old vintage cruiser. I trashed it, but it's still in my parents shed, so sometime I need to collect it and restore it.
    1988: Diamond Back Apex. My first mountain bike.
    1993: Schwinn Paramount. This was way too flexible for me, but I bought it mostly for parts.
    1993: Alpinestar Full suspension. This got all the parts off the paramount. I went from rigid to full without ever trying front suspension. This bike had the option of different rear triangle parts so you could race xc or dh with it. I abused it for a few years and the bushings got very sloppy. It finally died in a head-on crash with a jeep on a fireroad. Fortunately I was fine.
    1998: Supergo Access. This got all the parts off the Alpinestars and was converted to SS.
    1998: Intense Tracer. This was a new bike and was awesome, but I found that the SS was more fun on the local trails and only used the Tracer when I thought it was warranted.
    2000: Vitus roadbike. This was pieced together via a couple of friends old parts.
    2001: Cannondale CAAD 4. This was my first good roadbike. It was awesome.
    2004: Cannondale Optimo. This replaced the CAAD 4 frame, which was getting old, and it got mostly old parts.
    2005: Gary Fisher Rig. This was my introduction to 29ers. I loved it.
    2006: Vulture. This replaced the Rig, but got mostly new parts.

    Hmm, 16. Not too bad.

    5.KHS it was shiny
    6.Specialized m4 FSR all zooted up still got it its a loaner bike now anyone wanna buy it?

    1960- I went to the neighbor's house and gave them $1 for this tiny bike. I broke the frame about three years later.
    1965- A gold Stingray with a slick.
    1966- Brazed a gear onto a three speed hub. Made my first mountain bike. Proceeded to ride it on trails.
    1967- Mercier ten speed. Plum color. Huret crappy derailleurs. The beginning of my road riding. Oh, 69 dollars new.
    1969- Italvega Super Speciale (Wow! All Campi.) Sew ups. I began road riding on the San Francisco penninsula. Every day for years I road up Old La Honda or Page Mill or Kings Mt. Road and then along Skyline and swooping down home. Met Jobst Brandt. Tom Ritchey. Not many bikers back then.
    1985- 1983 Diamondback Ridgerunner. Started hitting trails in Palo Alto and Los Alto hills, and Mount Tam.
    1988- Broke the Ridgerunner frame. Got a Diamondback Apex.
    2001 Giant NRS Air
    2002 Giant NRS Air
    2003 Giant NRS Air
    2007 Ibis Mojo carbon fiber. Just got it two days ago. Holy Cow!

    There was a unicycle in there too. I actually road Page Mill on that thing. I also commuted to school on it for years, in the late 60's.

    This post has forced me to realize two things about myself: 1.) My memory sucks compared to most of you. 2.) I suddenly realize that I haven't owned all that many bikes(in comparison).

    It started with a trike-I have a pic of me riding it at 3 years old..with nothing on but a cowboy hat, boxer shorts and cowboy boots. That's still my riding attire to this day.
    Several inexpensive kids bikes.
    My first big purchase..a Schwinn Stingray..3 speed
    Ross Mono Shock
    Swing Bike..don't recall the brand
    Schwinn BMX..several of them
    Mongoose BMX..it was a sweet bike..and it was stolen
    Peugeot 10 speed..my only road bike
    My first mountain bike was in 1990..don't remember the brand, but it was blue..and about $350
    1991 GT Tequesta
    1992 GT Avalanche with Rock Shox Mag 20..or was it 21?
    Long lull in bike purchases..ex wife didn't approve..I had to get rid of her, and buy more bikes
    2000 GT Avalanche
    2005 Jamis Dakar..another one that was stolen
    2005 Kona Coiler
    2006 Raleigh Phase 2
    2006 Fetish Fixation SS
    And the ones that I know I've forgotten about..

    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.
    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,it sports many of the parts from the Kumicho, with Azonic Outlaw wheels and an X.7/Saint/RF Diabolus custom group.
    '06 Kona Coiler Deluxe: just picked it up yesterday and broke it in on some jumps and drops, inaugural AM ride tomorrow at Galby. Love it! Like a more nimble little brother of the Dirtbag, but with all the confidence and less of the bulk.

    ok I'll play

    The ones I remember:

    1981 - Gios Torino; full Campy race package except for Phil Hubs; natch great bike parted out

    1980 - Trailmaster #5 - I was of the Cove Bike shops mascots. I had it eight years; straight guage aircraft 4130; Mert Lawill built them and Eric Koski brazed the braze-ons. This I really do regret selling.

    1986 - Cunningham 014 - aggh many permutations on this beast, it chewed up a lot of parts - now on permanent display in europe and not being ridden - such a shame

    Current:

    2001 series Mikkelsen rides like a dream
    Rock Lobster fixed: one of the most rediculous bikes in the world. No expense saved here - all that said it rides f'ing schweet
    Singlespeed. I love singlespeed, its no maintenance man - no problams man

    Not too many...now at age 35

    circa 1976 - Schwinn single speed (bought off the radio "swap shop", maybe $5)
    circa 1980 - Huffy 20" BMX (hristmas present)
    circa 1987 - Western Auto Flyer single speed (still rusting at the parents')
    1991 - Giant Iguana (later traded it in, had at least 3 lives)
    1996 - Diamondback Ascent EX (stolen after about 6 months)
    1996 - Kona Lavadome bought used in '99 (trashed frame after RD failed)
    1999 - Kona Muni-Mula (built up from the frame, still have)

    Updated list

    I've made some changes to my list. It seems like there's a new bike every 2-3 months or so. This was how the list looked in March:

    93 Cannondale M700
    95 Klein Rascal
    96 Trek Y-33
    96 Manitou System DH (still have)
    01 Iron Horse G-Spot
    01 Schwinn Straight 6
    02 Foes Fly
    03 Intense Spider
    03 Titus Quasimoto
    03 Titus Quasimoto DH
    05 Titus Moto-lite (still have)
    05 Seven Sola Ti (still have)
    06 Ellsworth Moment (still have)
    06 Ellsworth Rogue (still have)
    06 Gunnar Ruffian 29er SS (waiting to be built up)

    and 2 road bikes:

    05 Orbea Lobular (still have)
    05 Orbea Aletta Tri (still have)

    Now, the Gunnar Ruffian 29er SS is built up. I've sold the Orbea Lobular and now have a 06 Titus FCR road titanium road bike. I'm thinking about building up a 29er FS bike - either a Ellsworth Evolve or a Niner RIP9. Eventually, I'd like to replace the Moto-Lite with either an Ellsworth Epiphany or maybe an Oracle. Decisions, decisions.
    Kokopelli Racing

    1. Late 50s: a small trike.
    2. Early 60s: a bigger trike later changed into real 2-wheeled bike.
    3. Mid-60s: "Schoolboy"
    4.Mid-60s: "Eaglet" - to terrible envy of my peers, even despite being second hand.
    5.Late 60s: "Ukraine". 1 speed, 18 kg, kick brake. I did quite a few long solo trips in Lithuanean forests on it.
    6.Late 70s: "Sputnik" - no, it wasn't by DaBomb, it was the real thing. 8 speeds, quite decent bike for the time
    7. Early 80s: one more "Sputnik", after riding my first one into grave.
    8. Early 90s - one more Ukraine, given me by my sister.
    9. Early 90s - No name, no paint, 1 frame, 2 wheels. With gears, some working, some not. Ended up in garbage bin.
    10.Mid to late 90s - same, with paint. 3 in a row. Strange but true, I somehow succeeded in riding pretty tough Galilean trails on them. I believe, I was by far first mountain biker in my town. We still have just 1 LBS keeping no brands at all.
    11. 2000: Marin Palisades Trail 1999!! Still alive, even with original wheels(Ritchey Rock rims on Ovation hubs.) Over all this time and kilometrage - just once out of true, due to broken spoke!
    12. 2001: Diamondback X-Link sport. Gave everything to me, now retired - in shape of cannibalized frame.
    13. 2005: Diamondback XSL comp.

    Memory is too fuzzy beyond 1983 other than I remember the bikes used to come equipped with a "turbo boost button" that I used during one race and got DQ'd.
