    I had a Ventana La Bruja with one of the original hand made Marzocchi Super T forks up front, much nicer than the later production models. I got hit by a car commuting to work and when I recovered from surgery, I decided to sell the Bruja and get a light weight, shorter travel bike.

    My motto is: Bikes are for buying, not selling. Just like guns.
    I have never sold a bike. I have given some old bikes away to friends or to my kids, but never sold one.

    My needs change often - so I give it much thought, before deciding what to keep and what to sell. Mostly, it is parts that get sold on eBay, that I no longer need. Good thing there is always a ready, newbie market wanting to "upgrade" to my stuff.

    I was a 26er holdout for many years, refusing to go on the 29er bandwagon.....that is, until I test-rode one. That was all it took!

    Bike I regret selling? This 18-pound XC rocket:


    I recently replaced it with this 20-pound urban assault ride:

    Regret selling a first year production Voodoo Bantu I custom ordered, my first bike shop bike EVER! I fire sale priced it to buy my new puppy a fence panel kennel and doghouse so he could be outside while I was at work all day(heart in the right place anyways) since I was a single lady that didn't live around family to let him out and give him shelter if things turned south.
    I babied that thing until I went on a ride with a more "knowledgable buddy" on a mud trail ride and he washed my decals off accidentially with a power car wash wand. The shop I bought it at knew how much I loved that bike, so they hand painted new lettering on it(awwww!) I had it for 2 years or so until I sold it, so I did enjoy the ride while she was mine. I almost bought a replacement one of ebay a few years back but knew it wouldn't be the same and let it go to a higher bidder. What is done is done.

    I don't regret any other bikes though and I have sold & bought quite a few. Hubby requests I stay at 3 bikes, and I might have fudged a bit since bike 4 is actually a unicycle and not a bike(details...details...) I think the only one I couldn't possibly sell and NOT regret would be my Conundrum muni. Too fun, too many memories learning to ride(and fall!), and making onlookers smile. Yup, that one ain't ever leaving my stable. Ever.

    what bike(s) do you regret selling?

    I sold a Titus RX29er last week and I already regret it. But the dude was stoked and I have a new hard tail so it's all good. Here's one that I DON'T regret selling .... Because I never sold it. 1999 Bianchi Campione d'Italia; 2x8 gears and all stock right down to the bottle cages. 24 pounds of Italian steel. I still ride the hell out of this bike. Ima' ride it tomorrow!

    Yep, I miss it.
    Ironic that i saw this post-i don't have the funds to buy a bike whenever i want (well, have the funds but i'd rather pay the mortgage early) so i was riding an '03 Trek Fuel 80 up until a month ago, it was all stock except i broke the RockShox Pilot fork so had to replace it with a RockShox XC32TK, and of course different tires. It's got the Fox Float rear shock and all. Anyway, i was gonna try to sell it for a couple hundred because it would be a great beginner bike but at the last second i decided to keep it just for the heck of it. I live in a townhome like condo so not a lot of storage space but i have a huge attic so i just stuck it up there. My wife was like "really"?

    No regrets. I'm a bike collector. Been riding a couple years now and up to 3 bikes. 2 mountain and 1 road. I plan to add a newer road bike to the stable. Keeping the current one on the trainer year round!

    I just don't see the point in selling bikes, at least not at this early stage in the collecting process.

    Not a mountain bike, but a road bike. I regret getting rid of my old Trek 2300 after my (now 7-year-old) daughter was born. It would have been an '01 or '02 model, all Ultegra. I didn't really need the money either, I just didn't have time for it and it seemed a shame to let it sit gathering dust. Now I'm looking to get back into road riding again. If I kept it, I wouldn't be shopping around for a new bike now.
    Speed solves all problems, except for those things it makes worse.

    My 16" 1997 GT Zaskar set up for duel slalom...super fun rig. Did sell it to fund my 1997 LTS DH which I still have.
