    Bike Mileage Breakdown

    Just a little something to note the mileage on each one of your bikes for the loggers.

    I started logging ONLINE in 2005 (Bikejournaldotcom). These are the numbers I have since on each bike. I did keep a manual log of my riding previously since 1995 but it's hidden away in storage somewhere.

    In total, I've got over 70,000 miles since 96.

    These are numbers since 2005


    Lemond Tourmalet...................13,400 miles (out of commission)
    Lemond Chambery...................14,735.........(out of commission)
    Cannondale R-900....................5,406...........(still going, app 6,000 miles early years)
    Burley Duet Tandem.................3,315...........(still going strong)
    Trek 8000 MTB.........................566..............(still going strong)

    37,422 since 2005

    Gina: Since 2006.....................she had about 2,000 per year pre 06 since 1998 (couple exceptions figured in) so I will guesstimate she has 30,000 lifetime since 98.

    Trek Pilot 5.2...........................14,622 miles
    Bianchi Sport............................288
    Burley Duet tandem..................3225
    Crossroads hybrid.....................31.6

    18,166 miles since 2006

    So is the Crossroads new for Gina? I take it the Bianchi just doesn't cut it as compared to the Trek? So since I am being snoopy, how did you end up with more miles on the tandem than Gina?

    Nope, she rode it before going with roadies (1996 purchase), I figured her mileage into the guesstimate. She loves it, won't get rid of it even though she has other bikes. I never should have gotten rid of my hybrid. Maybe she is smarter.

    She wouldn't ride the Trek when it was new, she insisted on the Bianchi but for $2500 I talked her into giving the Trek a month of Trek only riding. After she adjuste to the steering and slope tube, she found it more comfy. She loves the Bianchi and won't get rid of it either. Her opinion is that he STEEL Bianchi is just as smooth and as good a ride as the full carbon Trek with a weight penalty after 40 miles. She said (she had never heard the saying steel is real) the carbon is ok but the Bianch has a soul of it's own. Over all the Trek is more comfortable as a WSD model and better drivetrain components so she rides it.

    I started logging my miles on bikejournal in 2005 and she started in 2006. I posted our bikejournal info.

    I ordered the headset (bearing set up) 1 1/2 weeks ago. Came in and it was the wrong one. So they had to investigate. Turns out I only need the bearing (minus the ring, topcap etc). Trek was out of stock so they had to hunt one down at the assembly line. Found it and should be here early this week. Of course it's already Wed.

    I have new cables, hardware all ready, but can't/won't do a thing till I have the bearing. I need it to cut the steer tube height. Easier to transport unassembled as I have to take it to the shop every time while looking for bearings etc.

    I wish I knew my own personal mileage. I'd be more curious to know Beanz's elevation numbers, though.

    Elevation goes up an down. One year I can have 35000 feet in a month and others 10,000 in a year. Some years I've done all flat rides and others, 6 months of climbing prepping for an event. I wish I did know though but back then, never really considered logging it.

    Nope, Sorry

    I only ride for the smiles. Could care less about the miles. I have been riding the same annual amount since the 70's and will keep smiling until I am unable

    I got my trike in December of 2009 (and inherited an exercise bike shortly thereafter) and have been riding ever since.
    These are the numbers since then:

    Stationary Bike.......................2,588 miles (sold)
    Sun EZ3 USX-HD....................1,575 miles (sold)
    Trek 7200 Hybrid.....................1,340 miles (needs a tune-up)
    RANS Zenetik Pro....................1,012 miles (current ride of choice)

    About 6,515 since December 2009!

    I stopped logging on BJ a number of years ago. Mostly because I always forget. I've been pretty consistent in my mileage of between 6000 and 10,000 miles a year since 1996 or so. This year is my lowest since I started riding though. Knee and thumb surgery have put a real crimp in my mileage. My longest ride is only 240 miles this year!
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.

    I've climbed about 135,000 feet so far this year.

    I put about 650 (maybe a bit more?) miles on my R3, which I got about two months ago.
    I put about 120 miles on my Soloist, which I got around three weeks ago.
    I put ~4,200 miles on my Novarra Element, which I traded for the Soloist.
    I put 3,815 miles on my RS, which I upgraded recently to the R3.

    There have been lots of bikes before them, and lots more thousands of miles, but, like I said, I wish I knew more specifically.

    What kind of stationary bike? I didn't include my stationary biking because I find that the mileage figures are way off from reality. It thinks I can bike an average of 25mph on the highest resistance setting, for example.

    Quick scan of my bike journal shows....these are strictly rides in the mountains only, about half my rides were on the, mostly flat maybe 1000 ft per ride, These numbers don't include that elevation gain. I did 118 rides last year, half with 1000 ft that would add another 40-50,000 but I didn't count it.

    This year 110,000 feet of climbing so far

    Last year 175,000 feet total, 3 weeks off after crashing on MTB (separated shoulder) and less climbing.
    First 3 months last year Jan-March totaled over 50,000 then I crashed in the dirt.

    Really just a rough estimate ... my bike computer says around 1,600 miles in the past two years ... but that doesn't include winter miles on my mag trainer (no rollers yet) ... I figure conservatively that would put me around 2,200 miles or so since my return to serious cycling.

    I'd love it to be more ... but my dad duties come first and it's often a relentless schedule.

    These are guesstimates since I didn't have a computer till 96 and don't keep history.
    I avg 3000-5000/year due to the short "good" riding season these estimates are on the lower end (3000ish)
    STL - steel, AL - Alum, CF - CF

    Pre 1989
    Miele 10 sp STL................................2yrs...~5000........10 mph crash into curb, folded the downtube (out of commission)
    Bianchi Brava 105 STL.......................5yrs...~12-15000..Rust (good ol steel) /breaking spokes every other ride (out of commission)

    Post 1989 (wanted stonger wheels)
    1989 Rocky mountain stratos AL.........22yrs...~25,000+....Only bike for 7yrs 89-96. Wore thru the rim braking surface in 2002, I rebuilt with
    XT hubs and ritchey vantage rims and they are still going strong.Last 5 yrs still doing 1-2000 a year in -20C winters (got studs).

    1996 Kona Kula AL...........................15yrs...~20,000......Main bike 96-2004 still ride once in a while upgraded everything but frame and seatpot.
    2004 Kona Kula Primo AL....................6yrs....~15,000.....Broke the seatpost tube last year, welded it and it worked but wanted something new (out of commission)
    2006 Spec S-works Stumpy FSR AL.....3yrs.....~2,000......Pretty flat up here so I only ride it on occasion.
    2008 Trek Madone 6.9 CF..................3yrs.....~2,000......Awesome bike but I don't ride as much as I want due to the crappy roads. I stil do 99% MTB
    2011 Noroco Team XC CF.................3mths...~1,500......Still tweeking it

    I guess I should add pictures (This might be the only picture of a 1989 RM stratos on the interwebs!!)

    So far this year 1007.77 miles; did not track till this year. So, I might add up to another 100-200 depending on Novemeber/decemeber's weather (read if we avoid a lot of what the east coast had yesterday and last night)!! I think the bike computer had 450 miles on it when I started this year from past YEARS of riding. I know I have ridden around a 1000-2000 (I guess) one year(1995?) getting ready to do a MS 150, rode a century on that ride and then the knee gave out about 10-12 miles into Sunday's ride (as did the DW's; I would have really messed my knee up if she had not stopped. I intend to keep track from here out cause you all insired me with the question in the welcome section of "how many miles lifetime?" to which I had to respond "NOT SURE!?!" I have also been inspired here to track my miles walked next year; what the heck if I am tracking the bike might as well track the feet!!

    Combination of stationary & stationary recumbent at my gym + miles on the trainer. I count them separately because the mileage is certainly different than normal riding. Still, I use it as a metric for improvement from one winter season to the next. I compare indoor miles with indoor miles and outdoor miles with outdoor miles.

    Don't have the breakdown by bike, just totals. These are among a Trek Navigator, Trek 7.5 fx, Long Haul Trucker, exercise and stationary bikes, and whatever I borrowed, rented, or test-rode:

    2006 - 2 miles (got the bike December 23)
    2007 - 3K miles
    2008 - 2K miles (Lost 8 weeks from a broken rib)
    2009 - 1200 miles (Saddle and knee problems)
    2010 - 800 miles (knee problems, broken rib)
    2011 - 800 miles (knee and back trouble)
