There is always room for another bike, and everyone could always use a new toy. Curious what do you have?

This is a bicycle forum.
oh yeah i nearly forgot.... i guess humor was too soon...

Im a 22 year old punk kid who knows nothing. I got into cycling about 2 and a half years ago out in Colorado Springs, rode a few fixed bikes and SS road stuff then actually broke down and got a road bike. I was recently retired out of the US Army due to combat related injuries and ride because running is too hard on my body. I guess I am a bit of a smart*** with a weird since of humor... sorry if that came off wrong 10 Wheels, just trying to mix it up a little

Ive got a:
Scattante CFR Elite road bike
Trek Marlin SS 29er Mtb and fun bike
Trek 330 as a SS pub crawl bike
Planet X Track bike working on a full Zipp build

Thanks for serving....How many years?

We sometime have new posters looking for love not bicycle riding.

Which bike do you ride the most?

Thanks, 4 years with a tour to Afghanistan. Lately ive been riding the 29er on some pretty cool single track stuff here in the NC Mountains mainly Pisgah and Wilson's Creek. Then the Scattante. How about you? You have two sick BMC's and a very nice Felt. how do you like the Felt? I'm thinking about picked up either a BMC or Felt frame and swapping my Scattante stuff on to it.

70 years old.

35,000 miles on the Felt
10,000 miles on the Cannondale Touring One. Did a NY to LA ride on it 4,200 miles.
Red BMC 2500 miles used for training.
White BMC 215 miles, bought it just for The Indy Track Ride.

I like the compact 50/34 cranks on the BMC's. Very nimble and responsive.

Used the Felt for some Texas touring.
