    FAVORITE bike you've owned?

    This might be lame, but it could be cool so...

    out of every bike you've ever owned, which is your fav. and why?
    mine would probably be my yeti dj, its an 06. I built it from the frame up.
    w/
    fork: Pike 454
    wheelset: 325 rims laced to saint hubs.
    brakes: saint
    shifter: saint
    cranks: saint
    stem: diablous
    bras: diablous
    thats the gist of it.

    its my fav, because its snappy, tons of fun and i picked each part out myself.

    here it is:

    Loved my Demo - It just plain ripped. nothing this bike couldn't do. Built on a budget too, surprised me overall.

    But Favorite has to go to my new DHi. It just compliments my riding style better. more flickable, corners amazing, and it just shreds. I can't say enough good things about it.

    Mine is my Ventana El Cuervo. Picture spec:

    2004 Cuervo Med.
    Manipoo Swinger 6
    2004 888r
    Hadley hubs w/823's
    Diabolus post, cranks,bars

    Picture shows it's "for sale" mode but I kept the wheels. Previous incarnation had I-beam seat/post, Boxxer WC, DHX 5.0 with ti spring and Saint Brakes. It weighed 41.5 lbs.

    It's my Fav. cause I took it to Whistler 3 times and had the time of my life with it up there. Perfect weather, Garbanzo was new right after I got it, and I got a shot and autograph from Dave Watson! (Real film picture... don't have it in the computer.)

    P.S. Ryan, you didn't say why that bike was your favorite...

    It was a xc bike, but it was my first bike I paid for with my own money, and it only took 4 years of saving. Tons of fun and really got me into the sport

    For some reason I can't get past the memory of my Yellow Stumpy (03 I think). It was my first Dually and I had an awesome summer. It was my first US summer, I won a Novice XC race and did some epic rides. I was sad to see it go to pay for a plane ticket

    I haven't owned that many bikes, and I got out of riding for about 5 years, but of all the bikes I'd have to say my Tomac 204 was the favorite of the bunch. Although my first 2 wheel bike was *****in, banana seat baby

    My Gambler



    The geometry is right for me and I finally have a bike with the suspension as progressive as I like it. The super stiff rear end is also one of my favorite things about this bike. She disappears underneath me.

    The Chopper



    My first custom build. I have another Schwinn cruiser I trash picked that will get redone when I find time, but I think I will keep it more classic. And no, the fork doesn't have any travel. I pilfered a $10 cheapo DC fork from ebay for the lowers and crowns/steere tube, ditched the internals and replaced the stanchions with tubing of the same diameter. Welded nuts into the bottoms of the new stanchions and attached them to the lowers just like stock.

    I would say any number of bikes I owned between the ages of 3 - 7, but I can't really remember exactly what those were, so i'm going to have to go with my first "real" bike, the Raleigh Rampar R10 full suspension. Got it in '78 from my LBS, and loved the bike. Owned for 6 mos. and then it was stolen. Tracked down the thief, but then he threw it over a bridge into the water to get rid of the evidence. Cops made him dive down and drag it up a week later, but it was ruined by then, saltwater! Needless to say this guy was a career criminal and as far as I know, spent pretty much the rest of his life in jail, shocking isn't it???

    My two favorite rides. Although I have to say the Preston probably takes the top spot since I spend the most time on her. 208 miles and counting already in 2008

    I loved this bike. I progressed so much on it. It was very predictable and confidence inspiring. (The climbs were hella tough, but made me stronger!)



    Now I'm riding this and actually like it more! Haven't had that much time on it, but I'm already faster on it than my old Fly.

    It would probably have to be my '03 RM Edge. Light (~29 lbs), flickable, versatile, and has taken some serious abuse, yet asks for more.
    It's sporting Hookworms in this pic, as it went to Rays a few days after this was taken.

    However, we'll see how long that lasts, as I have a BR frame on layaway at my LBS which should be out (and hopefully assembled) here in the next few weeks. That may very well take over as my favorite.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    I don't have any pictures that I know of on here but as far as "the best" mountain bike is concerned, I'm pretty hard pressed to find anything better than my Pitch. She climbs better than a 07 Stumpy, descends better than the 05-06 Enduro, and sits pretty right around 32 pounds. I do need to do something about the raw frame... needs paint soon.

    But as far as my best bike EVER? My 06 S-Works Roubaix. Yes, its a road bike... but she's the lightest, fastest, and smoothest ride I've ever thrown a leg over period. With my "heavy" build kit she sits at 17 pounds for a 58cm. Besides there's something sweet about long stretch of asphalt, a nice tailwind, and a speedometer reading 35-40 mph on flat ground.

    My Astrix Union has got to be with out question the best bike I have ever owned. I've done nothing but abuse it and the bike has never failed me. I wish my Enduro would have done the same.

    thats the gist of it.

    its my fav, because its snappy, tons of fun and i picked each part out myself.

    here it is:


    Dude I must say, that is totally sick. Im in the process of building up my 08 DJ and am having trouble selecting a set of tires but when I saw yours I thought "I want those" what are they? Ill post pics of mine as soon as my build is complete.

    Well, so far this is my favorite bike. I have put alot of time and patience into this bike, and finially it is paying off. The 06' Diablo......

    Specs..
    Fork: 07' 888 RC2X VA
    Shock: 06' Revox
    Wheelset: Outlaws
    Brakes: Hayes 9's ( 8in front / 7in rear)
    Shifter: X-7
    Derailure: X-9
    Cranks: Saints
    Chain guide: E-13 single ring
    Pedals: Wellgo B-67's (kinda crappy)
    Bars: Azonic B-52's (scandium = FLEXY!)
    Grips: ODI Rouges, never anything else.
    Tires: 2.7 Maxxis Minions 60a

    I replaced the Ti spring with a steel spring on the Revox because of the rubbing on the shock body. I just got the 888 back from Zoke and it feels great! The bike is a bit heavy at around 45-ish pounds, but all in all I love it. She can "monster truck" through anything, except tall rocks, the BB is so damn low....

    the front is a minion dhf the rear is a highroller. 2.5's .. they hook up solid in the dirt. i'm also looking to get a set of larsen tt's on hand for when the dirt gets drier and more packed.

    My '05 Giant DH Team. This bke handles like it is on rails. IMO it is a much better bike than the new Glory. Just my opinion.

    I've always loved the Giant DH Teams. If I were to get a DH bike it'd be a DH Team or a Sunday.

    I may have to pick those up. I was lookin at the Larsens as well. They seem like they may be a pretty decent tire in drier stuff like you mentioned. Thanks for the info. Badass bike you got there

    My Canfield F1, I loved my karpiel armagedon and then swapped to the f1. It rides better, more stable and fast!!!!! I have a jedi on order, if it rides like my F1 and corners like my armagedon then that will be my favorite.
    For now its this beast! 39. lbs of pure fun!! If the new jedi is 2lbs lighter and I build it race only it will be 35-36lbs. Lighter hoops, no damper and fox with ti vs avy with ti, boxxer wc vs my 888wc. 2lbs on frame alone, 200g on shock, 145g on damper, 185g on hoops, 1lb on fork. = 4.25 lbs lighter!

    For DH my Gram Mal has to be the best yet:



    For DJ/Park/Urban and probably my favorite bike overall is my Riot. I just feel like I am one with the bike all the time:
