    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

    Fuji Berkeley cheapo road bike - abandoned during a move;
    Some other Trek hybrid thing - stolen;
    a '94(I think) Kona Lava Dome - stolen; (I still miss that bike!)

    '99 or '00 GF Hoo Koo e Koo - hated it, sold it;
    '01 Rockhopper (this is where I got the bug) - on the trunk rack when I got rear-ended;

    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.

    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...

    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.

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

    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).

    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.

    Cool-blue Rhythm More bikes

    Little red fire engine (not a bike, but the first set of wheels I remember)
    Bright orange banana seat bike
    A few 10/12 speed bikes before I regained my senses and got back to the dirt.

    Then there are the bike I bought or built up

    1996 - Kulahara Mesa
    1998 - Diamondback Ascent
    2000 - Kona Hardtail (name ???, but white paint with color speckles throughout)
    2000 - Specialized HardRock
    2001 - Stinky Dee-Lux
    2002 - Ellsworth Joker
    2002 - Giant NRS
    2002 - Airbomb Nukeproof Hardtail
    2004 - Ellsworth Joker
    2004 - Specialized BigHit DH
    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.

    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)
    Mountain: Santa Cruz Blur
    Road: Trek Madone 5.2 SL
    Commuter: Sette Reken 1x9

    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

    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 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.

    2001 Trek 6500 HT... bought at auction for the ZX frame.

    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?
