Holy crap...but I'll try it anyway!

1972 - used 20" bike, unknown - I painted it with a roller, puke green
1974 - used 20" bike, maybe AMF? Stingray ripoff.
1976 - used Schwinn Stingray.
1979 - used Schwinn Stingray, modified: MX grips (lol, one was "bigger than the other, why is that Dad"?), BMX bars, knobbies.
1980 - 1st BMX bike - schwinn frame, cracked it. Skyway mag wheels.
1980 - 1984 - Redline Proline - nickel plated, built up with blue parts and (I think) tuffmax front chain ring and rims (composite).

(Pause, the wasteland that was age 16-college)...

1995 - Mongoose MTB - rigid steel and 20" frame - WAY too big. Got me hooked. Maureen got me this bike.
1997 - Haro A7 - Ball burnished! Rock shock Indy fork that didn't work when it got cold outside (bumpers froze).
(1999 - "shared" a dh bike with Maureen - 1999 Haro MX2, built by Intense).
2002 - Rocky Mountain Pipeline - 1st "freeride" bike, still use it as a trail bike.
2003 - Bought a 1985 Bianchi road bike.
2004 - Kona Stab - 7" travel DH/FR bike.
2006 - Azonic Steelhead SS for trail/jumping/street.
2007- Sinister R9, raw aluminum.
2008 - Sinister Gruitr - 4.5 or 5.5" travel trail/DS/Super D bike - coming soon.

I remember there was a 3 year span where I had a bike stolen every few months, but would buy one at the police auction to replace it. I had at least 2 Mongooses in that time.

The Hutch, the DG, the R&R, and the Torker were all stolen either from my house or at school.

Up until 87 you had some rad bikes... kinda fell off after that, though. 'Cept the FA Limo.
The early years were my feeble attempt at BMX racing. I spent 3 years trying to road race, then the military took up some time from 91-93. I got the ProFlex when I finished my AS degree, but I didn't get into riding until I got the Stinky. It's come and gone ever since.

This is a big year, though. I am racing this year and my wife has promised to ride more too. The RM7 will be my XC bike.

I always wanted the Kuwahara! My brother had one and it was awesome. But I got the R&R that he always wanted.

I had an Azonic Steelhead that year as well, I knew I forgot something.

<edit> R&R Goodness. The single top tube/rear triangle was awesome. The seat tube was like 12" MAX.

You're stealing his bikes?

:confused:
No,no,no. Not a bike thief!! He has a habit and addiction to building up bikes, I go over to his house to get parts help or fix help, see one of his bikes he's built up and go "How much?" Next thing you know, I'm telling my wife why I wrote Bob yet another check....

His Haro X3 is now my DH rig, thus the name
His Schwinn Mirada he rescued from the side of the road is now my road/cross/pimp bling project bike (670b sweet, may I add!)
I have a lot of wheels/hubs/forks/etc that he has owned and has since sold to me.

Just free market bike dealin'...

Redline flights AND beartrap pedals. 100% awesome.

I was thinking about putting beartraps on my DH bike this year. Kick it old school, but then I remembered how much flesh I lost and decided against it.
