    I have 2 favourites:

    Intense Tracer FSR - Had this in and around 2000 - 2005, loved the way it rode and built in various different guises. Sold it (for some reason) bought another, then another. Great bikes

    Santa Cruz Nickel - this is my current bike, but I've honestly not felt so at home on any other bike. Love the set up, love the way it rides and flatters my (lack of) skill. I've owned a lot of bikes and ridden even more but the Nickel is the best all-rounder I've swung my leg over.

    This is kind of an unfair question...

    Because, my first real MTB could be considered the best bike i ever owned for sentimental reasons. A 07 Motobecane Fantom Elite. Where would we be without our first bike?

    Now, the most expensive and capable bike i ever owned could also be considered the best bike i ever owned. A 08 Santa Cruz Heckler.

    So, i don't know.

    My favorite bike so far has been my Dean. This is an older picture but man this bike rocks. Climbs, jumps, handles, light, and just damn fun to ride.

    I built this frame at UBI. I'm biased but it's the best riding bike I have...

    I have several Rock Lobsters, but this 29er I've resurrected is my current favorite, the other bike pictured is a Sears Screamer that I had when I was a kid... When my parents gave that to me at X mas I almost cried as I wanted a Schwinn "crate" model... my friends ridiculed the hell out of me when I rode it...

    This is NOT a picture of the bike I owned. This is from BMXmuseum.com

    I raced a GT Mach One when I was 9-10 years old. I hauled the mail on that bike, really light and really fast. I had a lot of fun riding that bike.

    Currently, I really like my fat bike. Its bright green! Love the color and it seems like this bike will go just about anywhere I want to go.

    I've still have (and on a rare occasion) ride my Mach One. Looks just like that one.

    Lots of cool bike postings in here.

    This is my rig.

    1999 Moots YBB 19" Refurbished in 2010

    Mavic Crossride Wheels (1900 gr), Fox 32 RLC dialed down for 80mm travel, Sram BB7 brakes.

    Moots Seatpost, Fizik Aliante saddle, Mix of XT and XTR drive chain.

    At very least about 80,000 miles on this frame. Many of those on expeditions with a BOB trailer.

    Currently in Northern Thailand which is a lot of bumpy steep roads with major 3 to 4k foot climbs.. Some paved and often rough and some dirt and jeep track.

    Fairly stout and durable now with steel chainrings and other reliable parts. 24.5#.

    Like to put it on a diet with some Stans Crest or Arch wheels.

    I still have a GT mach sitting around somewhere, identical to that photo except I still have original GT composite wheels, not THE originals, as anyone who rode one hard knows they break, LOL.

    I find it interesting that some many favorite bikes here are HT or rigid.

    Been thinking of selling my SuperLight cuz I like my HT better and the SL well: meh.

    The 20-inch Schwinn I had when I was 7-9. I rode the pedals off of that thing and went everywhere. At 11 I put riser bars on it to make it a faux Stingray and we were off again.
    I don't rattle.

    My 2005 Trek Liquid is the bike that ignited my passion for XC. We've been through a lot of pain and sufferring together over the last 6 years (mostly mine) so I'm treating her to a facelift this winter.

    My Favorite My Singular

    This is by far the best handling bike I own. It can just carve up the trails. It is like it is part of me. LOVE IT!

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! This:


    2003 Specialized Epic.

    Had a lot of little things swapped out but it's hard to believe I've had it eight years now. It will be nine next July. This bike made me laugh out loud the first time I rode it I was so not expecting the way it rode to be the way it rode if that makes sense.

    The really sad thing is, this year she didn't get outside even once. We had deaths in the family and my former mountain biking friends have moved on to other things and I only managed to make 200 road miles the whole season. Depressing year on the whole actually - riding wasn't much on my mind. But next spring is not far away.

    The bike really needs a good overhaul at this point after several thousand miles without maintenance on the shocks and nothing more than cleaning the drivetrain.

    Very nice ride! That's the original production year, isn't it? It's got to be collectable.

    Hope you get back to riding soon as planned. I had a near death experience recently myself. Kinda helps you appreciate the good things in life a little more. For me, riding is a means of mentally escaping the things in life that cause distress...
