    Man, you guys have had a lot of bikes. I'm only 22, so I still have some time to lengthen my list I guess...

    1. Tricycle

    2. Black and Purple Huffy w/ coaster brake

    3. 6 speed Murray (Stolen)

    4. 18 speed Huffy

    5. 21 speed Royce Union (Stolen 2 weeks after I bought it)

    6. 21 speed Pacific (The bike that I got into mountain biking with. Also had to constantly fix it up and replace parts, which is how I learned to work on bikes)

    7. Custom built Schwinn Homegrown S-Carbon (Ordered a frame and an XT build kit. Sweetest looking bike I've ever had. Bought and sold for $1100 a year later)

    8. Gary Fisher Sugar 2 (Bought for $1100 with my shop discount. Sold for $1350 two years later.)

    9. Redline Monocog singlespeed (Bought for college commuting, fell in love with it, selling this week because I need the money. I plan on building up a new, sweeter singlespeed before I start law school.)

    10. Santa Cruz Blur (Ordered frame and each individual component so that it was EXACTLY what I wanted. Full XTR, Chris King, Fox Forx, etc... Never added up my total price on it, but it was in the area of $3000 with all parts bought at wholesale or employee purchase price)

    11. 2007 Lemond Zurich (I plan on ordering it in the spring from the new shop I recently started working at)
    Bikes:
    Mountain: Santa Cruz Blur
    Road: Trek Madone 5.2 SL
    Commuter: Sette Reken 1x9

    Good Lord...

    I thought I had owned to many bikes to this point in my life; but it looks like I'm runing way behind!

    Here is my list:

    01 Tricycle
    02 Some 16" wheeled bike with training wheels which I don't remember what brand it was
    03 1972 Murray. Banana seat and all. I had more fun on that bike than any other since
    ---------------------------- Long pause with out a bike. I think it lasted 5+ years--------------------
    04 1982 Sears Free Spirit
    05 1970something Raleigh Profesional road bike
    06 1986 Miele mountain bike: THE worst bike I've ever owned.
    07 1996 Trek ST120
    08 1996 Trek Y33 (warranty after the ST120 broke after only 1 1/2 months of use)

    09 1998 Trek VRX (warranty after the Y33 frame broke. VRX was the second WORST bike I've ever owned)

    10 1998 Softride Norwester - awesome commuter bike
    11 2001 Catamount

    12 2003 Diamondback XTS (all mountain/Freeride)

    13 2004 Raleigh Inferno XC

    14 2004 Diamondback XTS Moto (Freeride/DH)

    15 2004 Banshee Morphine

    16 2003 Raleigh Professional (road)

    17 2005 Raleigh Rush Hour (Track)


    The last 5 are still in the coral
    Some of my happiest memories in life took place on my bicycles. - Me

    Late, but present

    1979-83: Various BMX beaters and tricycles that I don't remember. I was a kid and didn't care what I rode, I was riding! They were left, stolen, donated, or trashed.
    1985-87: Swap meet-brand BMX bike. Again, didn't care what brand. It was gold and looked cool! (remember, still young) Got stolen.
    2001-2006: Bought a 2000 GT XCR-5000 (I-drive) in my adult life to get back into biking. Sold it last June.
    2003-Present: Got a 1987 (?) Diamondback Outlook as a present and got converted into a SS and back into geared. Still lovin' it!
    2004-Present: Bought a 1987 Centurion Elite R/S road bike with Shimano 600 parts for off-offroad duty. Still have it.
    2003-2005: Bought a 1989 (?) Bridgestone 400 Touring bike for my SS road experiments. Converted back to geared and sold to a friend.
    2003-Present: Bought a 1960s Sears Brand bike (made in Austria) for my tinkering experiments. Still functional and collecting dust/rust.
    2005-Present: 2005 IRO Mia! frame and fork. Built into a 34x18 disc SS. This ride is currently my main squeeze.
    2006-Present: 2003 Iron Horse Rogue Ti Frame. Built into a 3x8 geared hardtail. Still have it for geared rides.
    2006-?: Bought a Zion 660 EBB Frame for my next project... Coming Soon.

    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)
    1960's Peugot PLX 10 Grande Tourisme (looks like the '55 Peugot but not nearly as nice)
    1973 Raleigh / Carlton singlespeed road bike
    1978 Raleigh Superbe 3 speed
    1978 Raleigh Super Grande Prix
    1980's Raleigh Criterium 12 speed - now a 3 speed hybrid commuter.
    1985 (?) Bianchi road bike
    85-ish Miyata 213 St 18 speed
    1987 Kuwahara Cascade
    2001 Trek 6500 HT... bought at auction for the ZX frame.
    I ride with 65'er...he's a mountain goat....But then again, we need to throw him in the mud and pack his pockets with lead shot before a scale will read him. - Psycho Mike

    1) Royce Union - Got it on a whim at Fedmart or some random place, stolen outside my house 2 weeks later
    2) Some other random bike, it was blue
    3) Diamond Back SIlver Streak - first "real" bike - 3 piece crank model, got it for xmas 1983
    4) Some mtn bike - I want to say a Nishiki, from 1986. My younger brother and his friends destroyed it. First bike I bought with all my own money at 11 years old.
    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
    9) Robinson Ruckus 20" BMX - 1999
    10) Cannondale SuperV4000 - 2001 - sold last year to buy Trek.
    11) Colnago C40 - 2004 - 30th bday present to myself
    12) Trek Session 77 - 31st birthday present to myself

    now I want to build up another 24" Bmx Cruiser and a Blur
    I just finished building my GF a Superlight.

    BOLD = Still have

    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

    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.

    My bed comforts my body. Sleep comforts my mind. The trail comforts my soul. And without a soul, what is a body anyway?
