Was listening to the Eric Saunders Inside Line today, he mentioned a bike I hadn't thought about in years, the Schwinn Homegrown. I owned one of these in ~2000. This got me thinking, how many bikes have I owned? Can I remember them all? Thought some others here might appreciate the exercise too! Turns out, I'm a total bike slut!


2000-2010

*Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo (probably 1998)
*Gary Fisher Sugar 3 did my first race on this bike at the age of 14
*Schwinn Homegrown (the blue one - might have been my lightest mountain bike)
*Gary Fisher Sugar 1
*Haro slalom hardtail met Gordo riding this bike at the Thunder Valley Slalom Series
*Santa Cruz Bullet 5th element, Super T, first bike I raced DH on; my wheels looked like stop signs after Moab
*Giant DH bike after realizing the bullet wasn't going to cut it I built up this beast. First time on it was Telluride, where there was a World Cup (and a non-WC race for us jerries). Anyone remember Bernard Fredrick? That dude could shred. If I remember right he had a top 15 time going until he crashed on the final left hander before the finish.
*BCD Inedible (!!!) Alex Morgan was wayyyyyyyyyyyyy ahead of his time
*Giant something or other built up as a slalom bike. It was circa 2004. Anyone know where I can find an archive from that era? EDIT, thank you below poster, it was an A/C Air!
*Specialized SX
*Giant STP
*Cannondale Gemini DH
*Azonic DH bike (the FSR one) with Avalanche shock - maybe the best bump eater I've ever owned
*Iron Horse DH bike (pre-sunday)
*Specialized Demo 9
*Cannondale Prophet
*Giant Reign For a bike in 2008, this was a prophetic ride.
*Gary Fisher Rig stolen
2010-Now

*Ibis Mojo HD one of the best all around 26" wheeled bikes of the time
*Niner WFO Ahead of its time
*Ibis Ripley: I wore the seat stays thin from cornering
*TJ Sharp Custom Steel Hardtail: low, long, slack 29" hardtail. It was awesome, and it was a sign of things to come
*Transition Covert 27.5
*Transition Patrol (V1)
*Transition Smuggler (V1)
*Transition Patrol Carbon (V1)
*Yeti SB55c
*Santa Cruz Hightower LT
*Niner RIP (V2)
*Santa Cruz Jackal
*Trek Slash

Count: 31

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few, and I am omitting road bikes, cruiser bikes, town bikes, motorcycles, short term test/demo bikes and dirt bikes

EDIT: Which way to the bike buying anonymous meeting again!?

LOL, nice collection mate!!

I only got 3 bikes since the beginning, soon 4.
The first 2 were B'Twin (I have no shame lol). They tought me a lot on the lines to be chosen and to be smooth, and I highly thank them for that.
Then I fulfill one of my dream, I did a custom build with a RM Slayer SS frame I got (second hand). It took me a year or so to buy everything (was still a student so I had to choose wisely). This build lasted until this year so I can say that it was well chosen.
And now I am waiting for my Spectral 2018 to come home sooner or later.

Yeah that's not really bikeporn compared to you but as long as it put smiles on my face, then it's OK

I'll play, gonna start around age 14 when I started getting real bikes. Started working in a shop in the summer of 1993 and racing a lot...

1993 GT something - full rigid, under chainstay U-brake
1994 GT Ricochet - first suspension fork, RS Quadra
Old Trek steel road bike
1995 Mantis Profloater - first full suspension, people thought I was crazy having 2.5" of travel
1995 Trek 5200 OCLV road bike

Mantis and 5200 went with me to college, where I got pretty heavy into paddling whitewater and took a pretty long break from seriously riding bikes. Pre-tubeless in thorny NM equals flats on flats even with heavy Slime tubes. Moved to Utah in 2006 and got back into it pretty quick.

Cobbled together 2000ish Redline Monocog rigid SS
Ventana El Chamuco - coil/coil, disc brakes, Gravity Dropper, now we're talking!
Raleigh Rush Hour fixed gear commuter
Specialized P2
Turner DHR square tube
Intense SS

What an awesome idea!

I got my first bike when I was 12 years old. Didn't even know how to ride before that. I got hooked immediately, and the collection began.

My mountain bikes (and Dirt jump bikes), in approximate order:

First bikes:

Norco Katmandu (The first bike, also the first of MANY Norco's)

Kona Fire Mountain

Norco Team Issue (XC bike which I used for dirt jumping until I destroyed it in a crash)

Asama El Diablo (DJ hardtail)

KHS DJ200

Norco VPS Drop

Started working in the industry:

Yeti AS-X

Dobermann Pinscher 21.5

24 Bikes Toy 4

Another Dobermann Pinscher (still have it, too!)

Norco Fluid LT

Dobermann Molosse

Turner DHR

Specialized Demo 7

Dobermann Le Pink

Dobermann MBF

Santa Cruz Driver 8

Dobermann Stella (The Dobermann DH bike. It was crazy cool)

Specialized Demo 8

Yet another Dobermann Pinscher (the last one)

Rocky Mountain Slayer Royale

Niner Air 9 (First real XC bike!)

Norco Range Killer B3

Norco Sight C7.4

NS Fuzz

Norco Aurum C7.2

Norco Range C7.3

Norco Optic C7.1

Current staple:

Norco Torrent Plus / Optic 29'er (build kit migrates back and forth)

Norco Range C9.3

Norco Aurum HSP


Whew. That was a cool trip down memory lane! It should be noted that a few of these I own/owned simultaneously... I don't sell bikes that fast.

2008 Trek 3700 (became a commuter after I bought the Marin)

From age 13 to 39

1993 Specialized Hardrock Sport (rigid, then with Specialized Futureshox, raced wearing a Team Yeti jersey)
1993 Cannondale Delta V (high single-pivot air shock had to run w/ zero sag. Basically a hardtail. Cracked shock mount)
1994 Canondale Super V w/ carbon swingarm (replacement for Delta V)
1995 DEAN BamBam (broke the chainstay riding off the curb - I weighed at most 140lb at the time)
1996 GT LTS DH (cracked seat tube weld)
1997 GT LTS DH (replacement for '96 model, ZZYZX fork overshadowed any flaws the frame might have had)
1998 GT Lobo carbon (wore out bushings is a week, shimmed them with Coke cans)
1999 Giant ATX-DH (broke one coil spring, otherwise trouble free for a change)
2000 Giant ATX DH (along with the '99 ATX probably the ugliest bike I even owned, but thought it looked rad at the time)
2002 Giant DH Team (still the best looking Giant DH bike in my opinion)
2003 Orange 223 (white, with floating rear brake)
2003 Orange Patriot (custom shock, lowered, slackened to 64 HA, easily the best trail bike I ever rode until 2012)
2004 Orange 223 (grey, without floating brake, so much better)
2005 Orange 223 (exact same as 2004)
2006 Orange 224 (actually orange this time)
2007 Iron Horse Sunday (like everyone else)
2008 Iron Horse Sunday (see above)
2009 Evil Revolt (one of the only ones not to break, then I sold it and it cracked on the guy like two weeks later)
2010 Trek Session Team (looked exactly like a Session)

Quit racing, took a two-year break from bikes. Started playing with a camera. Got back into bikes again.

2013 Banshee Rune II (Loved this one, flew under the radar but a bit ahead of its time w geo/travel similar to Nomad 3, ran it first w/ 26 and later w/ 275 wheels)
2013 Evil Uprising (pre-production model(s), one of the last growing pains before The Following arrived)
2015 Santa Cruz Nomad 3 (with custom Yellow graphics to cover the pink)
2017 Yeti sb5.5 turq (switched to bandwagon wheels. Finally owned the Yeti my 13 year old self always wanted)
2018 Yeti sb5.5 turq (same rad bike, different color)
2019 (coming soon)

Wow, some serious lists, some of you must have massive garages! I have a lot of frame swaps but generally in order of purchase, some are second hand so the dates dont necessarily go upwards :

1996 Decathlon rockrider 500 (got it when i was 12 and resurrected it in 2006, frame swap later) **
2008 Giant reign ( broke 2 linkages and wore out the BB shell, frame swap)
2008 steel DJ frame (got robbed within 6 months)
200? alu saracen DJ bike (horrible) **
2007ish Commencal Furious (great bike)
2009 Norco DH (awesome bike)
200? Kona HT (blue and white, maybe a "stuff") *
2008 Lapierre Spicy (frame swap from giant, cracks everywhere but still own and ride it every so often) *
2012 Lapierre Spicy (sizing was a disaster, they made huge mistakes with the geometry)
2014 Specialized Enduro 29 comp (way way a head of its time)
2016 Jeffsy AL 29 (good bike, great value) *
2018 Commencal Meta Power (not a real bike, but so much more fun)*

* Still have the bike
** Still have the frame

*2019 Specialized Stumpjumper 29

*indicates still owned, **indicates frame only

That's just my mountain bikes. Had a few fixies and cruisers and klunkers I left out.

Lots of overlap on a lot of these bikes, around the RM Slayer area there was a bike theft/insurance payout which helped. Most were custom builds, so I'd just get new frames, swap parts, and sell the old frame. I'd love to make a tree of which bike turned into or funded which bike. At one point I owned 4 dirt jumpers at the same time. I've still got three haha.

special ed hardrock
2001 gt-dhi team (with an extra support welded into the swingarm and i-drive bolts that didnt exactly fit because GT didnt have any more and i kept cracking them - got real good at finding replacements that would work at the hardware store)
2004 marin team dh (24" rear wheel for hucks)
2007 santa cruz v10 (had a team linkage so it was super low)
2008 iron horse sunday (also with hardware store hardware, but better fit since the linkage on that bike was essentially just the cheap bolt section of the hardware store)
2009 cove shocker (NSD custom dropouts)
2011 Intense M9
2012 transition covert
2013 Antidote Lifeline (first production large they made, had a serial number of 001, had a different linkage from stock that slackened and lowered it further but only had 208mm travel instead of 220mm, hangs on my wall looking pretty now)
2016 Evil Insurgent
