    Whats Your History of Bikes?

    Hey guys, just wondering what kinda bikes you've had over the years, starting when you actually got kinda serious about the sport, and then maybe moving into the whole dj/park/street scene.
    Here's mine:
    -My first bike I got when I actually started to find my passion for riding was an 2002 or 2003 Norco Katmandu (When I had that I was around 11years old.)
    -The next bike I got was shortly after that and it was an 04 (i think) Specialized Hardrock Sport, size 19" seattube!! I thught "bigger was better")
    -Then I sold both the Hardrock and Katmandu to help fund the purchase of an 2005 Kona Scrap. size 15". That bike got jacked from me, but luckily I had insurance on it, and with some extra money I had from jobs, I got an 2006 Kona Stuff., 13"
    -Now I recently sold the Stuff frame and bought a Banshee Scratch 12", and moved all the parts over.

    Funny how as I get older, the bikes get smaller!
    Lets hear your history.

    Hmmmm...

    1984: a 16" BMX - blue tires - I ripped on that thing
    1988: a used 20" BMX (not sure of brand) to start racing with
    1988 - 1995 (my racing years): Lots of different stuff. Let's see if I can remember...

    Redline (couple different ones), Kreation, Hawk (cruiser), some titanium frame that flexed like a mofo, Elf, MCS Magnum (cruiser), Mongoose something, I think there were some others I can't remember

    1996: Mongoose aluminum something MTB (my first MTB)
    1998: Haro Supra DLX - still my 20" dirt jumper
    2004: Specialized P3
    2006: New frame on the way... Simple Bicycle Co.

    Huffy - changed from street cruiser to full on BMX bike
    Columbia - looked a lot like a Mongoose, started racing on this one
    Hutch Pro Racer
    Profile Cruiser
    GT Pro - headtube ripped off and was rewelded on w/ a gusset and had a 76 deg angle
    Another Hutch Pro Racer
    Specialized RockHopper Comp - first MTN bike, in 1988 going to college
    Raliegh - can't remember the name but traded while in college
    Kona Lava Dome - this got me back into MTN biking in 1994.
    Rhygin Juke - I still have this frame
    Boss Hoss 24" Cruiser
    Boss 20" XXL
    Standard 250R/TrailBoss
    Gack Speed Demon
    Brooklyn Machine Works Cruiser
    Brooklyn Machine Works Park
    S&M Cruiser
    Porter Racing Cruier
    Another S&M Cruiser
    Azonic DS1
    Santa Cruz Heckler
    Intense Uzzi - rode once and sold it, glad I bought it used
    Sinister Ridge w/ 1.5 HT
    Turner RFX
    Evil DOC

    Current:
    Thick Custom 26" - selling soon
    Brew Custom 26"
    Sinister Splinter MXS

    It's a kinda long list but it started in 1978 and I tend to buy frames and just sawp parts - I have hubsets and cranks that are at least 6 years old. Also buying used helps keep the costs low.

    various bikes while i was just a wee lad. then my first real bike when i started racing BMX was a...
    '84- Diamond Back
    '84- DG - ??
    '85- Race Inc.
    '86- Profile Racing
    '87- Free Agent
    '88- Boss / '88- Elf cruiser
    '89- Robinson / '89- GT cruiser
    '90- Schwinn / '90- Kastan cruiser

    always had the latest and greatest when i was really into the racing scene. then i quit riding for a few years because i was 18 and was too "cool" for bikes anymore...

    then in late '92 i picked up my first MTB and's it's been bone breaking mayhem ever since (the MTB's stayed around a little longer than the BMX's)...

    '92- Nishiki - Alien
    '94- Diamond Back - Sorrento Sport
    '96- Nishiki - Colorado
    '98- GT - Agressor
    '99- Intense - M1 (first dh bike given to me by a friend)
    '00 KHS - Dominatrax (looked cool, had no idea it was POS)
    '02- Diamond Back - Mr. Lucky (wanted another BMX again)
    '02- SpecialEd - Enduro
    '02- Foes - ZigZag
    '02- Foes -Mono
    '04- Giant - STP
    '04- Canfield - F1
    '04- Giant - Acid
    '05- Nemesis Project (not built as of yet)

    i've still got over half of my MTB's except for the ones that broke in two or i sold. most are still being ridden by friends or have taken on lake bike duties...

    I had a schwinn sting-ray with a 5-speed shifter, banana seat, and a sissy bar! Back when those were IT.
    Got my first real 20" BMX in about '75, it was blue with black tuff wheels, and long cranks.
    Started riding 20" redlines in about 1980, got a 24" redline cruiser in about '84 and rode cruisers for about 15 years. After breaking several of the redline PL24s, I got a Boss USA cruiser that lasted me quite a while. I got my first mtn. bike in 89, a Haro Extreme. I quit riding in about '91 until I got an STP in '04, and I've been riding it ever since.

    bikes ive owned

    ive had a spooky metalhead, 2 FTW DNAs, 2 sinister DNA's

    i rode for spooky before they went under than rode a few of franks handmade frames before sinister started so ive been used to the same thing for quite a while. newest DNA design by far the best. would recommend that bike to anyone that wants to spend good change on the last bike they will ever buy.

    too many 20" bikes to remember. probably wayyyy too many.

    Countless wally-world specials. Then an '04 Ironhorse Maverick Comp(size 19,5'', keep in mind I'm 5'6'' HAHA! I still do have it, and use it as my commuter, I can get full leg extension with the seat all the way down on that baby). Followed the next year with an '05 Kona Stuff(size 15'') which I liked an awful lot, and learned most of my basics on. That bike got jacked. With the insurance money and some extra, I bought an '06 Norco 416, great ride, had a lof of fun together. Then, I couldn't stand resisting the sexyness of a nemesis project, so I bought one. And when I receive it, it'll be one mean lean machine.

    I think by "elderly" you mean "old school pimpin." From what I've seen, I bet the "elderly" in this forum can straight up school the young whipper snappers.

    hmm

    i started out riding bmx, so i will start there:
    old dyno vfr was my first bmx bike

    i started to get serious when i was around 12-13
    i rode a haro backtrail x1
    02 diamondback assault
    02 eastern hercules- what a tank of a bike. it weighed more then i did
    04 mosh bagley 4 star
    05 fit brian foster v2. 22in tt
    then i got really bored riding bmx and wanted to try something new so i got an mtb.
    06 khs dj 100, it was okay, but once i got the hang of a 26 i went through parts fast
    05 gt moto, it was a good bike for jumping, not so much urban riding,i bent the dropout some how on a fence ride?it got caught in the fence on the way down,
    05 specialized p.3- this was a great bike.my lightest complete bike, it weighed 23lbs. all lightweight parts carbon spacers stuff like that..
    06 cannondale chase frame. not too bad. i love the geometry.vertical dropouts have to go
    07 -WHAT I RIDE NOW dk xenia frame. good frame but a bit long for my taste.
    -next on the list-
    2007 union street 24 and or a 26 when they are available.
