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

    Tricycle
    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.

    Jesus....

    My True-passion detector is getting a lot of interference from my Yuppie detector....

    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.

    Shot through the heart
    And you're to blame
    You give love a bad name...

    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.
    I love you to death, but get on the bus or throw yourself under it.

    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)

    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
    - 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.

    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.

    This is self fulfilling and I can't imagine anybody else cares about my bikes. That said, I will limit to my mtn bikes just to humor myself:
    84 Diamondback Mean Streak
    87 Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo
    90 American Comp Lite
    90 Rodriguez AL 26 Mtn Tandem
    91ish Raleigh bonded bike XT group (can't remember model)
    97 Kona King Kikapu
    98 Kona Custom Ku
    01 Kona Stinky Primo
    41 Schwinn DX (new to me)
    Either my priorities have changed or I am way overdue for a new bike......

    5) Used Raleigh Technium Mountain Bike ~ 1990 to 2005 (built from box of components)

    6) Very Used Specialized Rockhopper Frame - circa early 2005 (late 90's frame)
    - components from the Raleigh, frame accepted larger tires ... updated

    - 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!)
    Diamondback Reactor, back when a bmx could actually fit me. And back in the day there were pedals and grips on it too.

    My brother's Haro Escape for a few months (no picture)
    Then my first mtb, a Trek 6500 (before cutting steer tube)

    Now my latest within-a-week addition, Bianchi Veloce

    My personal list:
    1) Red and white tricycle
    2) John Deer pedal tractor (Bad A**)
    3) 20" Ross Mt. Murray, late 80's model? Red, 3 speed.
    4) 24" Diamondback of some kind. Another late 80's model 7speed?
    5) 26" Mongoose sycamore, 21 speed 1997 model
    6) 26" Marin Juniper Trail Al Hardtail. 2001 model. 27speed and still my main trail rider.
    7) 27" Italian road bike from 1974. Hand me down, was my mother's when she was 15. Gone as it became too small for me.
    8) 27" Peugot 130 road bike 1986 model-- Craigslist piece of garbage. Still have it but havent ridden it since I bent the rear axle on a pothole on my commute. Heavy as hell.
    9) 27" 70's Viscount-lambert. Another craigslist special, but has worked out much better then the peugot. my current commuter/road bike.

    i'll play, just to see if I can remember way back before light weight anything was around.
    1st bike a tricycle or two. seen pics but no recall
    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.
    2007 Debernardi. road. 105, converted to full campy
    2007 KHS AM 2000. great AM bike. crash big time DH my helmet save my life.
    2008 KHS flite 300 for commuting. it's cheaper, lighter, faster and climbs better than my Debarnardi.

    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.

    MTBs:
    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)

    Road:
    2005 Specialized Roubaix comp double (DA/Ultegra)

    That's all...
