    I miss _____ Bike thread...

    This thread is for those bikes sold, lost, stolen, or left at home at the wrong times.

    I miss my Niner EMD SOOO bad right now. Only brought Cross bikes with me to school and of course my dorm is 500 yards form some awesome trails that are just a bit much to go fast on with a cross bike.

    My first serious bike, stolen off the porch of the house at 16th & Pearl St. (college).
    My 1st mtn bike, a steel Rockhopper, sold for $50 to help finance a used ProFlex 856.

    Took this bike with me everywhere I went when I was in the service. Sold it when I got married, stupidest thing I ever did. Wish I could find another one like it. Early 90's model Trek 820 or 830 one.

    My first LBS MTB after I scrimped and saved for a few years working 2 jobs, a 1997 Voodoo Bantu. I had it for 3 years and babied that bike. I loved it. But I had to sell it to pay some bills that popped up suddenly and I didn't have a choice.

    I sortof miss my tri bike, it was my size and way nicer than I deserved but was twitchy as hell and I hated riding it! I haven't ever dreaded riding a bike before but that one always made me feel on the edge of crashing at high speed. But man, I could fly on that! I have never went faster on a bike than I have on that one. Some days when I am in a triathlon race or road race, people pass me and I think "oh yeah....if only I had my carbon fiber rocket still, you'd see!"

    Yeti 575 - It was collecting dust in the garage after I bought my Yelli Screamy and I needed quick cash for a home purchase - which fell through. There are several places in the local park that I could only clear on that bike, and I think about it every time I dont make it.
