    State of the collection. Or whats in your photobucket. Pictures or it doesn't count:

    So,
    What's in the garage these days?
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Well I have two projects right now......one road one a fixed gear bikepacker.

    I know this place is called "mountain bike review" but this is a frame I love, an old mid 80's Bridgestone. I just blasted it, used a scotch brite wheel on her, and got it primed tonight, really looking forward to having it back on the road


    Second project in an old Peugeot roadbike that I've used on and off as a commuter and now going to make it a fixed gear bikepacking rig. Should be fun, have a Surly 36h black wheelset for her, just need to braise on some canti studs and make a frame bag, then I should be good!

    How About Change?

    How about looking at how much a collection has changed? Here is my list of bikes from the end of 2005. I've added a lot since then, but it's interesting to look at what I've gotten rid of or are now on their way out the door (marked with an X). At the time my collection was more about what crossed my path rather than what I sought out. My interests now are a lot more focused, and the bikes are from an earlier era.

    Bike List 2005: (X's - bikes gone)

    X 83 Stumpjumper (24" wheels)
    X 88 Yeti FRO
    X 86 Stumpjumper
    X 88 Ibis Trials Comp
    X 91 Yeti Ultimate
    91 Bontrager Race
    X 91 Kestrel CSX
    X 92 Goat Deluxe (it just appeared one day)
    X 92 Browning/Goat WTR SS
    X 92 McMahon Ti
    X 93 Manitou FS
    X 93 Santana Moda
    X 94 EWR Mod Trials
    X 94 Amp B-1
    X 96 Bontrager Race
    96 Mantis Profloater
    96 Project Bike
    X 97 Dirt Research Tandem
    98 Vario Stock Trials
    X 99 Yeti DH-8
    X 01 Ritchey NiTi
    01 Curtlo ST

    700c wheeled:
    85 Eddy Merckx
    X 85 Zinn TT
    89 Tomassini fixed
    X 92 Trek 5200
    96 Ibis Ti Road
    X 97 Slingshot CX
    97 Ibis CX

    Good stuff. DC it interesting to see how things change over time. Hopefully a continuous trading up until one has the perfect set. Be it one bike or several. I am intrigued with the fillet brazed pre suspension N Ca. built bikes from the 80's with an influence mainly on Ritchey's. Along with that, all the early bikes are also pretty intriguing (kinda goes together but not quite). I figure I will be done collecting when I have a quality example that fits from each of these builders, while keeping in mind limited garage space. In the mean time, I am never against finding a sweet donor/rider/trader to hang on to for a while and then use however will benefit the ultimate goal. I suppose my definition of quality is different from others also.

    Most of these have been all seen before:

    The Americans. My youngest sons Comp Lite, as found on CL. His neighborhood cruiser and do everything bike. The 93 Comp Lite, Re- living a bike I had in the early 90's. The Rodriguez tandem. Been with me for over 20 years. Seen many builds. My wife lost interest when we got her a road bike. Hasn't seen much use in a few years. Contemplating restoring it to it's original 1990 Mtb build.:



    The Champion. A horrible rider but such a cool piece of early history. Just got a second Uniroyal Nobby for this. Someday it will be complete:




    CIOCC. With the addition of the Ritchey road bike and a new Pinarello a few years ago, I think this one will be leaving soon. My first road bike. I got it back in the 80's:



    Mountain Goat. Actually much more complete than this old photo. Need to find proper decals someday if it's going to make the final cut:



    Pinarello + Campy. The bike I wanted back in the 80's but couldn't afford. Got the 600 equipped CIOCC instead. I am not worthy:



    Grail bike. been lost at the paint shop for a half of year (mental note, call paint shop):



    Original grail bike. Just recently finished. Wait, Hmm... needs seatpost:



    Latest addition. After I finish riding it for a while, it will get a proper build:



    My favorite vintage rider:



    Local. Unique. One of many bikes I wanted BITD:



    One of these days I will get this together, patina and all, and when I do, I will probably purge the over restored and not quite era correct DX:



    A fine neighborhood cruiser:



    Because sometimes you just want to ride modern:



    Old bike modern build. Future makeover no doubt:



    Not mine but taking up a hook in the garage. The older kids vintage bike:



    Along with that space taker is my wifes Specialized road bike, The oldest kids Ibis Alibi, his lake jumper, and his old need to purge Trek. Middle son has the Yeti, Sinister, and his old BMX. Youngest son has the American, his old Trek, and BMX.

    Thats most of them. Don't get me going on the donor bikes in the corner.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    I have a shelf, not a garage, sadly.

    On the shelf are a bunch of Cunninghams, a newsboy and a couple Phoenixes. The regular riders are in the hallway - Cunningham road bike, Moots Vamoots CR, Cervelo RS Team, Ti Phoenix and Potts 29er.

    A quick shot of the aforementioned Breezer Jet Stream. I removed the Control Tech stem from the original build in favor of a less racy option, Ti Tech bar is still in place! Got it and the 82 Stumpy out for a family ride yesterday, both were pulling little ones!

    State of the collection. Or whats in your photobucket. Pictures or it doesn't count:-breezer.jpg
