    Not even possible.

    mtbr doesn't have enough server space for my list.
    I would guess well over 100 different bikes.

    Three bikes in childhood I don't remember
    '85 Univega Nuovo Sport
    '93 Bridgestone MB-6
    '97 Voodoo Hoodoo
    '98 Bianchi Volpe
    '01 Santa Cruz Superlight
    '04 Calfee Luna Pro
    '05 Turner Flux

    Only seven. So sad. I'll need to rectify that. The MB-6 was stolen, I gave the Univega to a road bike-less friend last weekend, and I've still got the rest.

    I seriously wish I hadn't had so many, although some of them were/are through work, I think I'd be a better rider if I'd just stuck to one bike and learnt to ride it properly, instead of getting bored and swapping.

    I love my Dekerf's I ride the Implant SS all the time, and I don't even miss FS because of it, so I think nows the time to learn my bike and be more than happy with what I've got!

    Murray BMX – Really wanted a Schwinn Stingray, but got this instead.
    Montgomery Ward 10-speed – My mom’s. She wouldn’t let me take the kid carrier off the back.
    Nishiki – Silver. Heavy. But the first bike I mostly purchased myself.
    Razesa (generic from Bike Nashbar) - First nice roadbike with 600EX from Nashbar and handbuilt Nisi tubular wheels. Why? Euro.
    Mongoose ATB – Big. Chrome.
    Cannondale M-700 – My first “real” mountain bike.
    Klein Rascal – My first “real real” mountain bike. Best geometry ever, had the painted to match RS Mag21
    Pizza Bike (chrome cruiser) - Bought it with an REM disk, Sold it for half a pizza.
    Trek 4XX (Schwartzblitzen) - Flat black and crappy! Campy Victory equipped.
    Fisher ProCaliber – All red Ringle aftermarket. This bike never worked properly.
    Masi 3V – Loaner bike from R+E. Tried to abuse it as much as I could assuming it would be sold out from under me. It was.
    Mongoose Amp 2 – One of my favorite mountain bikes ever. Except for the creaking.
    Race-Equipped (Novarra) - Nasty townie covered with Rock Shox stickers.
    Marinoni Cyclocross – Painted like the Tricolore. Very heavy because Marinoni refused to build it light.
    Talisman – Sloping top tube well before its time. Looked like a bumper car.
    Guerciotti TT – Funny Bike. Enough said.
    Litespeed Classic – On a team deal through that character Wick at Control Tech.
    Diamondback BMX - Why? Don’t know.
    Mountaincycles MOHO – Why? Don’t know. Sucky bike.
    Marin Cyclocross – Doug had Billato build these in Italy... nice frames. Miss this bike.
    Marin Mount Vision – I don’t miss this bike.
    Marin TT – Ditto for the Cyclocross frame. Cool frame, but no aero fork. The euro’s were still trying to figure out Aero. (have they yet?)
    Cannondale CAAD-4 – Helen’s team bike. One of the better racing bikes I have had.
    Specialized Allez – Inherited from my dad for use as a beater. It was.
    Cannondale Tandem – Had this for a grand total of 6 rides and 6 months.
    GT Track - I only hazily remember this bike. Rode it maybe 3 times. Too small for me.
    Supergo Access ATB – Bought the wrong size frame, marked 18” but only 16”. Rode it for 2 weeks, too lazy to return it, sold it instead.
    K2 Mod-5 #1 – Red and White. Sold to some guy up north who tried to return it to me when his brother-in-law damaged the frame.
    K2 Mod-5 #2 – Stolen from behind my house with my Bonjour FSA cranks. I was pissed.
    Guru Crono #1 – Guru sent the wrong frame. I complained.
    Guru Crono #2 – Got this one instead. Very cool TT bike, fast and ugly.
    Ridley Supercross – Scored by Claudio. Not impressed by geometry.
    Empella Cyclocross – Good geometry but lost interest.
    K2 Mod-5 #3 – This replaced the stolen one... still being ridden by a cool guy from Belize.
    Ibis Fixed Gear – Bought frame, fork and headset for $25 from Helen’s mechanic.
    Merckx SLX Fixed Gear – Super cool, but how many fixies does a guy need?
    Orbea Altec Carbon – Best racing bike I ever had. Black. Fancy.
    Ritchey Access Comp – Free from a friend. Made it into my first SS, but never took it off road for fear of The Death.
    Orbea Airplane Fixed Gear – Another fixie? Geez.
    Orbea Onix – Team bike that replaced Altec Carbon. Nice, but lacks that certain something.
    Santacruz Superlight – I guess I had to own one eventually.
    Bianchi BUSS – Really ugly singlespeed.
    Huffy (Buckler) - Rusting and busting. Chainstay made from Titec Hellbent bar.
    Kona Cowan – Super fun and versatile bike, made me want a full-suspension bike again.
    Orbea 29er – Possibly the last XC bike I will ever need until 2007.
    Transition Trail or Park – The street and urban bike that the Cowan wasn't.
    Ironhorse 7point7 – The Crushinator

    Good topic

    1972 and on:

    little red tricycle. I first lived in San Francisco near GG park, near the panhandle. I was 3. My mom used to let me ride around the sidewalk on the front stoop of the apartment. She would turn her back, and the first thing I would do is go ride it around the block. That would of course totally freak her out.

    I have a sister who is 9 years older than I am. I got her purple girls sting ray as a hand-me-down. I rode that for a while.

    I had a blue Raleigh Rampart BMXer, complete with yellow tuff wheels.

    Then a chrome redline, that got ripped off.

    Then a blue redline 102b.

    Then I got into freestyle. I got a Haro Freestyler. That was sweet. best bike yet. I got a drum brake from the local junk store and built it up with an araya gold ano rim, and ran it with those old Shimano motorcycle brake levers. Can you say crazy brake power wtih no modulation? I sure could. Complete it with CW bars and Oakley 3 grips.

    I then got a Schwinn Sierra, my first mountain bike, off a guy at school. It had a busted front brake boss, so I bought a Fisher fork back when they were still locally owned in San Anselmo (where I grew up). I rode that for a while, and it got ripped off.

    I have another sister who is 2 years older than me. After my Sierra was ripped off, she got a Mongoose chrome mountain bike, and soon after went to Germany on foreign exchange for a year. It was my size, so naturally I rode that bike for the year. That was a rad bike, but I did so many drops I bent the fork out. I bent it back with a long piece of pipe and kept on riding it. She rode it for a couple years when she went to Cal, but it was stolen.

    Raleigh USA Grand Prix road bike. Fun, broke my hand when a chain exploded on me and went OTB... good times. It now sits bolted to my trainer after I converted it to a fixie, since I'm too much of a wuss to ride it in the street.

    Then I got out of biking for a bunch of years.

    Then I got back in. I got a Giant Yukon in 2000. The frame is still in my basement. Great bike, but it rattled my teeth out.

    I caught the bug and went crazy.

    I got a K2 Razorback from some guy in Canada. Loved it, but it was too small for me.

    Aosty set me up with some parts and an old '90 Trek 9500 bonded alu frame. I made it a low-rent singlespeed. I painted it neutral 50% grey. Love it.

    I also built up a used Giant TCR road bike with Dura Ace 8 speed.

    The Razorback really needed replacement, so I got a used '03 Stumpjumper FSR-XC frame. Love it.

    Missing the sheer crazy speed and lightweight of a hardtail, I built up the Yukon as a light bike. I found it was also a tad small, and rode really harshly, so I found a used Supergo Access frame, and built that up. Its now my race hardtail.

    So currently in the stable:

    '03 stumpy
    Access hardtail
    Giant TCR roadie
    Trek 9500 rigid SS
    Raleigh USA Grand Prix, built as a fixie.

    My wife's bikes:

    Giant Boulder with slicks for street
    Specialized Stumpjumper S-Works hardtail... currently getting painted.

    SE Racing PK Ripper Looptail,

    ah...the SE Racing PK Ripper was a classic, one of the first, if not the first BMX frame made from aluminum. I thought the Quadangle was pretty cool as well.

    10)Cannondale Jeckyle (got a 1/2 off deal and it was a good bike but I wanted more)
    11)Intense Uzzi DH ( fun but heavy and flexy just to tide me over until My 5 Spot arrived)
    12) SM Bullit)still waiting for the 5 Spot so I tried the Bullit but too many single pivot quirks and it was too small but it's still sitting around in a box somewhere)
    13 5SPOT YEAH (best I've ever owned; 3 years and no problems
    14)Cannondale 1fg (I fell for the SS hype but I picked it up frame and headshock for $250 new with a dented down tube. I still own it and it's a great training tool but it aint fun
    15)Turner Route 66 ( plush, heavy with the same geometry as my Spot but it feels very different.
    15 Somewhere in there was a KHS cruiser with a 7 speed hub that was cool but outweighed my DH bike.
    I'm so happy with my 5 Spot that I'm not looking for any bikes right now but a short travel bike would be nice to try and I have a line on a Burner but I don't think I'd ride it much.

    I am trying to add to my small collection. I offered My night vision Monocular for someones old beater mountain bike with front susp. I figure some outdoorsman's greed will get the better of him. Well I hope. LOL.
    Opinions are like A-holes. Everybody has one and they usually stink.

    Okay, I'll play...

    Lost in the mists of time are the childhood bikes, although I can remember the 20" bananna-seater with the sissy bar. I know I really lusted after the Raleigh Chopper with the gearshift on the top tube, though. If you've ever watched first-run Pink Panther cartoons on Saturday morning, you know the one:

    Fast-forward to the modern(?) era:
    1985 Raleigh 10-speed tourer (traded)
    1986 Trek 12-speed road bike (stolen)
    1983-ish Specialized Stumpjumper (Looking back, that's the best bike I ever had - bought from a college buddy for $20 & ended up throwing it away in 1988)
    1988 Nishiki Alien (destroyed in flood of '94)
    1989 Vitus 979 with chi-chi Campy gruppo (destroyed in flood of '94)

    ...insert 11 years of sedentary suburban malaise here...

    2004 Motobecane Fantom Comp (Sold it to one of my present-day riding buddies)
    2005 Specialized Roubaix (Current road rig)
    2006 Gary Fisher XCal (Current dirt rig)

    What's next? Dunno, but I'm hearing the tandem road bike calling...
