    All Our Bikes

    I was thinking since there are so many, "Which bike for me/my girlfriend, etc?" threads, why not start a thread that SHOWS what we ride and when we ride it, as in type of riding, trail, etc.
    You can include weight, parts specs, whatever.

    So here it goes:


    1.) 2009 Intense 6.6SS, medium frame, 38 pounds, DH/Slopestyle/AM riding.
    2.) 2007 Santa Cruz V10, small frame, 42 pounds, Pure DH fun!
    3.) 2009 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp, medium frame, 27 pounds, trail riding.
    4.) 2008 Santa Cruz Nomad, medium frame, 32 pounds, for trail/AM riding.

    I'm 5'7" tall, ride clipped in for trails but prefer platforms for DH.
    Um, I think that's it for now.

    I'll bite

    1) 2000 Surly Crosscheck road n' chipseal eating monster, somewhere around 53cm- don't know weight, doesn't matter if it's towing #50 of kid + kid stuff + trailer really....
    2) Burley bent circa early 2000s. A TANK. Unfortunately my spine gets odd swelling when I try it. Glad I bought it used.
    3) 2002 Marin East Peak size L, right around 28-30lbs before I start loading up the mega-bottles and Mtn Feed bag with fuel.
    4) Blauwerk Downhill scooter- 26" wheels, probably at least #35, LONG. Used for trying to kill myself w/ the dogs. Happy to say this evening we accomplished yet another run without encountering a skunk or wiping out.

    Great idea!

    I ride endurance & XC and have (had?) a Niner Jet9. It was recalled, so I sent it back, and I'll be riding an Air9 while I wait for a new Jet. The Air is arriving/getting built today, so, in the meantime, here's the Jet:





    Edit to add:

    (Just built tonight!)


    Road Bike (the BH):


    BH Carbon Cross:


    Surly Crosscheck SS/Fixie combo:

    In the autumn, I ride my Niner Sir 9 rigid singlespeed quite a bit. it is a really fun bike:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/4046477787/" title="The upgraded S.I.R. 9 with carbon fork by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2619/4046477787_e02826d28b_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="The upgraded S.I.R. 9 with carbon fork" /></a>

    I also sneak in the occasional road ride on my Orbea Diva:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/450180408/" title="Diva by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/227/450180408_fb3824e87e_o.jpg" width="1200" height="900" alt="Diva" /></a>

    And make periodic jaunts to the farmers market on my old DH hardtail:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/442072476/" title="CowanTownie by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/195/442072476_9e09aceffa_o.jpg" width="900" height="675" alt="CowanTownie" /></a>

    In the winter, I spend my time playing in the snow. Life balance is important!

    In the spring, we spend a ton of time in the desert, mostly on my 5-inch Orbea Rallon:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/3459050031/" title="April09Moab_36 by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3642/3459050031_8931a44d3e_b.jpg" width="768" height="1024" alt="April09Moab_36" /></a>


    And sometimes on my Corsair König, a slopestyle bike:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/3666275026/" title="MPYR_4 by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2573/3666275026_7cf0d924ac_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="MPYR_4" /></a>

    As the weather warms at home, we spend more time on the pump track, I have a Corsair Ducat for this:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/3199788045/" title="GD_Ducat1.jpg by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3479/3199788045_88e186e1d9_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="GD_Ducat1.jpg" /></a>

    And last but not least, I too, am waiting for my new Jet 9. My Jet was the best XC bike for riding up in the high mountains of Utah, and I can't wait to have the new one. It is a great bike (mine is the white one):
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/91694861@N00/3491797432/" title="JETS_1 by hukee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3569/3491797432_339c3e7edd_b.jpg" width="1024" height="780" alt="JETS_1" /></a>


    I think that embracing all forms of bikes makes every kind of bike more fun. Learning to ride flats has improved my technical skills (even on the bikes I ride clipless) and spending time on the road makes me stronger. Looking at all these mostly makes me wonder why I don't have a cyclocross bike anymore, ha...

    Cheers,
    C

    Great idea! I love my bikes, here they are:

    Ibis Mojo SL, small: trail riding, 26.5lbs, 5.5" rear/6" fork
    Cannondale Perp, small: lift/DH, 41lbs? 8" rear/ 7" fork
    Jamis Xenith Comp, 51": road riding & trainer

    I just upgraded my trailbike from a stumpjumper to the Ibis, but the SJ was also a great bike for the rocky trails here (CT)...

    How hard was it to swap the silver/black linkages like that?

    Looks pretty sweet!

    Great idea, and beautiful bikes ladies!!

    I typically race XC on my 26" S-Works Epic. At Downieville this past year it weighed in at about 22.6lbs with a big air canister and tube attached to the frame. I think at one point it was down to about 20.5lbs with Maxxis 310 tires, which I have only used once It's an awesome race bike for me and I was stoked to be able to race on it this past year.



    My highest mileage "steed" is my road bike; an 07 Specialized Roubaix Expert with compact double gearing. Gets "steep" on some of the higher grade climbs, but awesome otherwise. I have no idea what it weighs. It's almost completely stock except for an Armadillo front tire and PT (power tap) rear hub. I'm guessing it's 20lbs. It allows me to easily and quickly get in training miles and do regen rides, and I love the SRAM Rival drivetrain with double-tap. I had issues figuring out Shimano shifting when I was first trying out road bikes, and this just "made sense".



    I also have an 07(ish) Dos Niner that was my race bike in 2008. At its lightest (1x9 or 2x9) it was around 23.5lbs. I love the 29er platform and the soft tail is great. I had the opportunity to ride my husband's Niner AIR9 in New Mexico last summer (08) and compared to my 29er Canzo (which I rode the rest of the trip) and my Dos Niner softtail, I was shocked at how much more "plush" the soft tail is than a regular HT (hard tail). Currently it's sitting as a SS, which I have unfortunately not gotten to use much this off-season. Not sure on weight; it may have dropped a little due to removing the drivetrain, but probably around 22-23lbs at the low end (depending on what wheelset we put on there).



    I also have an AM (all-mountain) rig - Specialized Enduro Expert from 05 that is absolutely "well-loved". It's probably 31lbs and climbs like a pig (no joke I just rode it for the first time in nearly a year :O ). Awesome suspension and a fun play bike, especially since we just sold my Specialized Demo 7 DH (downhill) bike.

    A DH play photo just for good measure!

    I'm about 5'12", longish torso, XC rider. After riding for four years on bikes that were, 1st -- too big, then 2nd -- too small... I went custom since I didn't seem to be able to "get it right" on my own.

    Seven built me this:



    Knowing what sort of TT fit me, and wanting something that would take more abuse and wouldn't transfer as much to my body, I added a boingy bike. One flamingo-pink Titus Switchblade (TALAS):



    I also spend quite a bit of time on the road since trails aren't that close and it seems to be soggy all too often, so I have "old faithful", my road bike. It's a '96 Trek OCLV, parts and wheels are newer... almost a frankenbike!



    Ability to travel places often went bu-bye and my riding became totally XC and I started wanting a FS bike that would handle and climb more like my Seven, but be more forgiving on bumpy downhills than a HT w/ 80mm fork. I couldn't afford a whole new bike, so after spending time on eBay and other sites with closeouts, I found a Fox RLC and a Titus RX1 frame (aka budget RacerX). Most of the parts from the SB also fit the new frame, so here's my "mostly new" FS bike:



    Edit: I use the same Time ATAC pedals I've had for years and prefer the Terry Men's Fly saddle.

    I have:

    Bianchi Giro road bike - no idea what it weighs... (I'm the one in the middle with no knee warmers. I don't have a lot of pics of me road biking, mostly a bunch of scenery pics I took with my camera phone...)



    Bianchi P.U.S.S. for XC riding - 21lb singlespeed



    Transition Syren for trail riding - ~35lbs for all purpose riding Now it has a white replacement frame but the rest is the same...



    Ellsworth Dare for DH racing/shuttle/lift served - ~38lbs
    Fixin' to get dirty in 3... 2... 1...


    And my Ventana El Cuervo, which is going up for sale as soon as I get it put back together... But still techincally part of my bike quiver right now!

    I'm a beginner and on my second bike. First was a beat to death Trek 800 and now I have a used Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo. I put V-brakes on it to replace the cantilevers and a shorter stem, so that's about it for mods.

    Can I still hang out here with you guys? Someday when I decide what I want I'll have nicer things. I rode a borrowed Kikapu today that was pretty sweet.

    Don't worry Firecracker. I wasn't going to post on here because I only have 2 bikes LOL

    But here goes anyway:

    My first: Giant Yukon would recommend it to anyone starting out learned a lot on that bike. Put a Manitou fork on it will a little more travel than the Dart 1. I still ride it around some.

    Just recently purchased a Giant Trance. Will probably own it forever. I started some DH stuff this year and it handles it pretty well (beginner here not doing killer drops or anything yet) So next on my list is a DH bike.. maybe next year.

    I'm 5'6 long torso, stubby legs. I have big hands and shoulder so WSD is not for me. My Yukon is a small, but the Trance is a Md. I like the way the bigger bike fits even though I'm right on the edge of being too short.

    PLEASE post up! Don't worry, sometimes I'm embarrassed to have so many bikes. People that don't ride (like at work) just don't get it at all.

    I plan to start shopping for a FS next spring Hubby gave the go-ahead.

    Ugh, I hate how that sounds. We check with each other before any major purchase!

    Don't worry! My collection is obviously pedestrian, but I'm wearing out drive trains so clearly it's getting the job done. And friends/family still think our collection is nuts.

    The SID fork I upgraded to on my mountain bike is literally worth more than what it's attached to. I have to say that it's such an improvement that it's been like riding a whole new bike. I don't catch air beyond just hopping a water bar now and then, but that bike has handled everything from long XC rides to getting down the tail end of a local old school freeride trail over and over on my lunch hour rides.

    My advice: Just ride the heck outta what you got and save your money. When parts fall apart, fix/upgrade them. When it can't be fixed or you save enough $$$$, buy another and start the thrash-cycle again. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Blurs

    2 Blurs - a classic, and my new baby - a blue Blur LTc. That bike pretty much does everything I need it too, so soon I'll be down to one MTB.
    1 Steelman road bike
    1 ancient Cannondale F700 for running errands.

    I can't believe in the last year I've downsized from 6 to nearly 3. I do miss my Bianchi Puss though (but my knees are very thankful).

    I am five foot six and a half....30ish inch inseam..

    Here are mine...yes I have been known to name my bikes

    1. SC Nomad...I call her my "big girl bike"....

    2. SC Chameleon...My light duty XC "trusty bike"

    3. Redline Monocog Flight 29er...Only a few weeks new to me.
    Was looking for a regular size bike for SS'ing fire roads and came upon her. She was a smokin' deal and I plan on riding her all winter long as is. Don't really have a name for her besides "clown bike" because of the wheel size. She sure is a lot of fun. I guess clowns do have fun too....need to change out the seat though....

    What fun! Resting in my stable now are the following:

    My first real mtb compliments of a bf's bday present to be back in 2006, Santa Cruz Superlight, which now acts as my back-up bike

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/27162025@N00/4087004749/" title="6.29.08 IMBA Summit 056 by ckralovansky, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2579/4087004749_97cff815e2.jpg" width="350" height="500" alt="6.29.08 IMBA Summit 056" /></a>

    After falling head over heals in love with dirt I upgraded last season to an Ibis Mojo SL

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/27162025@N00/4087004781/" title="mojo 003 by ckralovansky, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2699/4087004781_f46611bf4e.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="mojo 003" /></a>

    My love of bikes goes beyond dirt since my passion started in 2005 on a Trek 1500. Loving a good road ride with my buddies, I doubled as a roadie this summer and did four centuries and the Death Ride on my new road bike

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/27162025@N00/4087761392/" title="Death Ride 2009 009 by ckralovansky, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2606/4087761392_81dd7804e1.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="Death Ride 2009 009" /></a>

    My favorite mode of transportation is on two wheels so GiGi, my grocery getter, takes me on a daily trip to the market. She's a classic Rock Hopper.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/27162025@N00/4087004803/" title="gigi by ckralovansky, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2572/4087004803_fc311d511f.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="gigi" /></a>

    Resting beside them, and just for fun, is a Raleigh XXIX rigid singlespeed and a classic Schwinn

    I have been riding for some time and have some of my old bikes and some that I ride most of the time.

    I am 5' 3" tall so it has been hard to find good bikes that fit well without going custom.

    Titus Eleven that is 650b
    Titus Racer X

    You look about the same build as I have, long legs short torso? I have even found 29ers that fit me well...

    Unfortunately I need a standover of about 28" and a top tube of about 21.5" so not much to pick from. The Eleven with 650b get me a little bigger wheel to roll over thing easier and I also run the 650b in the front of the Racer X to slow down the quick steering as well.

    Just added an S Works Safire to the very small stable. It's a small, which fits me well as I am 5'1.5". It's an 08 that the dealer ordered from Spec at a much better price than it was in 08. I could never afford the current model year. Tomorrow is its maiden voyage.

    my bikes

    i'm 4'10" with a 26" inseam and bikes are hard to find. i too name my bikes

    Here's my xxs small titus racer x (sky) next to my 6'5" friend's 29er:



    followed by my true fab travel bike (candy). she was custom made for me



    i also own a jamis satellite but it basically sits in my garage collecting dust.



    i'm currently debating to getting a Titanium hardtail. anyone have any opinions on the 650b's? i'm too short for a 29er but i really want to try bigger wheels.

    Cool Bikes!!! I also have a few in my stable.
    1 Titus Racer X 29er 2009 size med 25 1/2 lbs
    2 Bianchoi SOK 29er 2008 size med 28 lbs
    3 Gary Fisher Rig single speed 29er 2007 painted hot pink size small
    4 Trek Fuel EX8 my only 26" bike size med 2007

    I love all my 29ers! I ride in egg beaters, I am 5'6. Hoping to do a few 12 hour races soon
    I wish I could post some pics, but I lost my camera in the lake a few weeks ago

    This is one of my old bikes that I use when I do Cowboy Mounted Shooting competitions on my horses. I ride my bike up to where the horses and the arena are. Its always good for a few chuckles!!! How do you get the picture smaller, dang that is huge!!!

    wow, you girls seem to approach bike buying with the same dedication and determination that you do with shoes and handbags! Nice Bikes!

    Definitely adherents to the theory that the formula for bike ownership is N+1 where N is the number currently owned!

    I'll have to show my wife this thread...

    I have way more shoes, but that's only cause I don't throw anything away.

    This is an excellent thread! Thank you ladies. I especially found it beneficial to see your full suspension bikes with your respective height/inseam. As for your bikes....I am totally speechless! Rock 'on Girls!

    Here is my first dual suspension. I quit riding a few years back and got into it again a year ago. And got a new bike! An Epic but with disc brakes and twisty shifters and other stuff I have no clue about. My BF is a bike mechanic.
    I have a Stumpjumper hardtail and my first bike was aTrek Antelope. Jeez that thing weighs a ton but my 16 year old likes it.
    My very first bike--and I rode it in the woods and everywhere else, my dad got for me when I was 12. A Raleigh 10 speed. Right now my BF is getting it into rideable shape again for me, just because it has languished for far too long. Next bike on the list is a cross bike--I'm thinking a Redline conquest.

    Oh and I am about 5 feet 7 or 8 and weigh about 130. I have a long torso so finding bikes to fit isn't a problem.

    Is loving bikes a disease?

    After the birth of our daughter we thinned out the stable a little bit, so I'm down to two bikes.

    A small Intense 5.5 (XC, trail riding, and baby hauling)





    and a small Intense M6 for pure DH goodness
