it'll be fun to see the journey everyone has taken through the years (or the journey you may just be starting!)

what's funny is that before getting into MTB media, i blew my paycheck and swapped out parts, frames or bikes every chance i coud (MTBR ruled back then for finding the goods!). once i started making a a "living" in MTB media, i hardly ever swapped out bikes. irony?

a lot of these were frame swaps only and i'm not positive of order or details.

1991 Bridgestone MB6 (barely a mountain bike)
1993 Gary Fisher Tassajara (first mountain bike i consciously saved for so i could have a "mountain bike")
1997 Specialized "max backbone" fsr (started as "trail bike" and morphed into hideous pseudo-dh bike)
1998 (i think) to around 2002 GT XCR2000 i drive
1998-1999 Santa Cruz Super 8 (beer can steeze)
1999-2000 Intense M1 (frame only, used parts off Super 8)
2000-2001 Specialized FSR DH (it had a monster T and lime green doublewides)
late 2001 Santa Cruz Super 8 (thanks big crank!)
2002 Some overbuilt Kona hard tail (north shore influenced)
2003 Dirt Works Slalomander
2005 GT Idrive 2.0 or something
2008 Iron Horse Yakuza
2009 Santa Cruz Chameleon
2009 Superco Charger
2010 Trek Session 88
2010 Santa Cruz Nomad
2012 Specialized Stumpy EVO Comp (current ride)

the m1 in all its glory

Had loads of crappy bikes growing up before i got to my early teens that i bodged, fettled and upgraded with my pocket money and such, but my first "proper" bike, my parents bought me, it was a 98 Giant Boulder Duo Shock.

1998 Giant Boulder Duo Shock (abused this beyond repair but still have the frame)
1999 Wethepeople BMX (didnt enjoy the BMX sold it shortly after)

2002 Specialized Bighit DH, in the original rootbeer, with 02 Monster T's(sold)
2003 Karpiel Apocalypse, twin shock monster, complete with Risse Champ Big daddy upgrade (Sold)

2011 Nukeproof Scalp (Stolen)
_________________________
Current Rides
2013 Vitus Dominer II (considering selling and getting a lightweight trail bike)
2014 YT Industries Tues 2.0 Comp

Most of these bikes were rebuilt in various specs over the years, I'd say the Bighit was the most memorable, not the best bike i've had but it was definitely the one i had the most fun on.

Identiti (Frankenbike, one of many builds, my most used and abused bike i've ever owned)


Bighit (before the Monster T's)


Karpiel (air shock and linkage removed)


Marin (first bike after a long break from biking)


Scalp


Dominer


Tues 2.0

man, there are some gems in these lists!

|

6/29/2014 9:13 AM

I'm fairly young and only been in the sport a few years so my list will be...significantly shorter and less impressive than what's before me!

Specialized Hotrock of indeterminate vintage (but it had black rims and spokes so it was cooler than any other bike ever)

1996 Trek Mt. Track XC 830 (Outgrew the Hotrock, started riding my dad's rigid steel beater. And I loved it.)

2010 Cannondale F7 (My first "real" mountain bike. Slapped a 130mm Tora on it because I'm stupid. It was awesome.)

2007 Cannondale Prophet 5 (My 30lb XC racer, everyday trailbike, park bike, and ENDUROOOOO machine)

1994 Cannondale M400 (Originally used to ride to school. Upgraded the shifters and brakes, got some knobbies, and now it's my "Dammit I can't ride my bike right now because parts. Get over hear you old bastard and let's bomb some fireroads!)

2009 GT Sanction 2.0 (36lbs of purple fury with an oversprung fork I can't afford to swap because titanium. Still own it.)

2008 Felt Compulsion Team (Bought the frame NOS for cheap, replacing the prophet. Yeah, it's got a lefty.)

And now we know why they call it the bike "industry".

|

6/29/2014 2:18 PM

Let's see... I'll put the years in when I can remember them!

Dawes Easy Rider - tiny kids 5 speed road bike.

Saracen Sahara - Bright yellow rigid MTB with 200GS gear. I loved it, but it was awful.

Saracen Backtrax - Big, black and rigid.

1996 GT LTS-3 - first bike with any suspension at all, awesome elastomers at both ends. Rockshox Quadra 5s! Handled beautifully once they'd warmed up. Later reborn as a single speed freakbike.

1999? Coyote XC-2 - Big 150mm single pivot, carbon rear end, bombers out front. Way ahead of it's time! Also flexy and heavy.

2001? Cove Stiffee FR - because I had to try the hardtail thing again.

Azonic Saber - Fantastic 6" all mountain / mini DH bike. Epic fun, but too heavy!

Orange 222 IBS - First "proper" DH bike. Great bike but I never really loved it. Frame is still in the cellar.

Azonic Recoil - Second proper DH bike. Still got it, but not ridden it for over a year.

2006 Cannondale Prophet - The Saber and LTS got stolen, and the insurance money bought me this. Loved it and rode it to death.

2011 Transition Covert - bought this when the 'dale died. Still love it three years later.

2012 Dartmoor Hornet - bought a frame and fork, built the rest from spares. Fun bike!

1987 Raleigh Grand Teton (Gotta start somewhere).
1989 Specialized Rockhopper (Still have as grocery getter).
1992 Bridgestone MB-3 (Unfinished project).
1994 Specialized M2-FS (First bike w/suspension fork. Broke frame riding the DH race course at Big Bear).
1995 Specialized M2-FS (Replacement for broken '94).
2000 GT XCR-3000 (First full suspension. Liked it a lot, for 5 months until the I-Drive eccentric seized and was unable to service).
2001 Kona Muni-Mula hardtail (Frame, built up with parts from the broken GT. Great bike, a real charger).
2002 Kona Manomano, 3.5 " full suspension (Loved this bike. Rode 5 years, seatstay broke in XC race on 30+ mph descent, off camber corner. No idea how I saved it).
2003 Santa Cruz Heckler (A good bike, but really underwhelmed by it).
2006 Jamis Exile Single Speed 26" (Bought because it was super cheap on close out, surprisingly good bike).
200? Black Cat Single Speed 26" (First one, still have).
2007 Jamis Dakar XAM (1st year, less travel, lower BB & slacker head angle than 2008+ models. Still have frame/shock, don't want to, but have to sell for medical bills. Bummed because I really like it).
2009 Jamis Dakar XCR Expert (Maybe lest favorite MTB ever, I put most of the blame on the crappy Fox RP2 shock).
2010 Black Cat Single Speed custom 26" (second one, still have, freakin' awesome bike).
20?? A frame builder friend built a custom front triangle for me which I assembled with the rear end and swink link of a Jamis XCR (swapped XCR's Fox RP2 for a Monarch RT3). I call it a J-mer, for lack of a better name, a combo of Jamis and the builder's last name. Front triangle is steel, it's stiffer than the stock aluminum Jamis front triangle and only 2.5 ounces heavier. Differs from stock by being 18" (Jamis did not make an 18") and it has a 1.5 degree slacker headangle at 69.5. Considering Works Components headset, which would slacken to 68.5. Couple that with it's 100mm travel and unsagged 12.6" BB height? I think that would make for an ultra fun bike, (it's already super fun)

~90's, some fully rigid 'mountain bike', ended up converting into ghetto 1x commuter bike in college.
2000 - took my brother's slightly less shitty bike that had a full inch or two of fork travel and started rallying Ute Valley Park, ended up breaking about a 3 wheels in a couple months.
2001 - Santa Cruz Bullit, first real mountain bike, went through many iterations:
Came with Rock Shox Psylo Race (xc fork on 7" bike?!? put an 8" rotor on that thing and it would flex backwards an inch or two every time i used the front brake. Cant believe i didn't die with that fork and XC rims while urban hucking down stairs in college)
Manitou Sherman -> Marz 888 -> Fox 36 TALAS
Progressive 5th Element -> Fox DHX 5.0 -> Xfusion Vector Air HLR
3x9 -> 2x9 (when i converted to 2x in 2006 and got a chainguide/bashguard the shop asked 'why would you ever want to do this?') -> 1x9
2014 - Santa Cruz BronsonC, full custom

Ride it till you break it, replace the part, ride again...
