Which Bike Do You Regret Selling?

We've all regretting selling a specific bike. Be it from how it rode to how it looked, or even the memories we made while riding it. We want to know which bike you've owned that you wish you'd have never sold.

Personally, I miss my DW-Link Turner DHR that I sold maybe 4-years ago. Fully custom build and it rode so damn well. The geo was spot on for how I ride and the aesthetic of the bike, to me at least, was damn fine. Aside from my 2007/8 DHR, this was one of the longest periods I owned the same bike, and every bike since I've only held onto for a year or two. I ended up selling it for an Evil Undead which I only kept for a single season.

So, what's your "the one that got away?"

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

My taupe colored Crupi Expert with Answer carbon fork on Crupi hubs with rainbow Ti spokes and Odyssey t1000 flamed rims back in 2000. My dad has kept all of my other bikes since so that one day I can enjoy them in my officesmile Pops is looking out for me. Now I just need an office. NOT

I regret selling my 2009 Commencal Furious VIP. I had that bike so dialed, and I have ever yet to get my current ride to feel as confidence inspiring. Photo

My 2005 Turner DHR. Dave Turner had our team on the East Coast & the pro team out West. He asked what color scheme we wanted to go with. That year, they had Needles & Sven , but we sure as heck looked so much sexier. [LINK TO IMAGE]

it would be pretty sick to still have this beast from 1998 (i think). the first "dh" bike i had. mountain speed 6-inch rear travel upgrade kit because travel trumped all, zzyzx fork (yep, standard 9mm QR), vbrakes front and rear and 46t xc chainring.

Without question, the DHR. I bought a new carbon bike with all the new standards just to catch up, but I don't think it's any faster.

If there was a carbon 650b DHR, I'd buy it in a second.

Honestly, don't really regret any. each build has been such an improvement over the last. Always learn more about what I like in a bike each time. My single speed blindside was still one of my all time favorite due to simplicity though.
Deity cranks, Iscg mounted bash with no guide, Saint brakes, totem air and vivid air. Paul chain tensioner kept it quite. Pretty sick bike looking back at 2010 compared to what we have now, haha

Almost all of them, really; some day when I'm rich I'll just buy another without selling its predecessor. But if I had to pick one, it'd be the steely blue Banshee Scirocco from about 2004

hands down the raddest bike I've owned. hucked and handled so well, a truly down bitch.

The gamburgalur was a ninja and rode better than any other DH bike I've ever ridden when it was chainless...

My old-school Litespeed Tsali trailbike, because I logged an impossible number of miles on this bike from 1999 to around 2009 and it was supremely reliable and comfortable throughout. Softail elastomer suspension, Control Tech Lawill Leader fork, Magura HS33 hydraulic rim brakes, Kooka triple crank, Control Tech billet stem, Power Grips pedal retention, hugeass Carradice saddlebag, Brooks saddle, et cetera.

I feel you, brother! I recently got one in L size after flirting with it for a good while and now that I have it, I can't see a valid reason for owning another newer bike.

Otherwise, I'm quite a keeper of old bikes, but the Spank Smoke hardtail was definitely nice and I am still hunting for a 1998 gloss red Marin Palisaded Trail, my first ”real” MTB.

From the darkest age of hydroformed MTB frames (2008) but such a blast to ride I don't even know what was so special about it anymore but I loved it so much:

I have never regretted selling a bike. I'm one of those weirdos who rides a bike until it breaks.

I deeply, deeply regret snapping My Prophet MX though. That thing was just right, exactly right on all the angles.

my old 500 that i sold lik 3 month's ago
was one of the first built,with basicly all the parts from my previous 450 and i loved how it rode
but then when i stoped racing DH and riding and racing my enduro bike i found my self only riding it when my enduro bike was with something broken, basicly rode ir like 9 times last year( in Portugal you can ride all year)
and basicly even knowing that i was going t regret it made the conscient decision to sell it and loose the least money with it so that i have money to switch bike when i want to

I'm just about with you brother. I've only ever sold one bike and it was a red XL HecklerX. I don't much miss it.
