    How old is your main MTB?

    It seems like most people have a bike that is'n tmuch older than a year or two on here. Just wanted to see how common older bikes were. My bike is a 2004. It's pretty new.

    2005. The v-drive cranks might be '04s, I don't know.

    Ask me again in 10 years, and I'll still be on this beast. As long as the frame is still good, I will ride it. It's a 2004 Trek.

    My current bike is a 1999 model. Previously my bike was from 1990. My old bike was still going strong when I gave it away to my brother (stupid move). I should have kept it. I really miss it.

    My bike is a new '05. I got it a week or so ago. I had a FS bike a couple of years back, it was a hodge podge of components from '96 - '98. I sold it because I was moving and could take it with me, I also wanted to go to a hardtail because I do more street and light trail riding overall.

    My bike's mainly 2005. The only things that aren't are the shifters and levers (soon to be replaced) and the fork (2002 I believe).

    I can't believe the majority of bikes here are '05s. I'm a 2001, with '02 wheels, '03 front derailleur and shifters, '00 or '04 cranks. The only '05 thing on there is Avid cables..

    I had a '99 until about 2 months ago. It just started to fall apart to a point where it would cost more to fix it than the bike itself was worth, so I decided that it was a good excuse to upgrade

    My frame is an '03, and the parts are a mix of old and new. My fork is an '04, my shifters are '00 or '01s. Wheels are '04s...etc.

    How old is your "main" mountain bike? Curious, as to how many people have more than one?

    Main bike - '03 Specialized Enduro SX
    Hardtail - '02 Iron Horse Sinister
    Single Speed - No Name frame
    Sitting around - '01 Intense Uzzi SL that needs to be sent back for warranty replacement (No money)
    Also sitting around - '03 K2 Brass Monkey that I'm building up for my GF's 12 y.o. son.
    Road bike - '02 LeMond Zurich
    Cyclocross Bike - '04 Bianchi Axis
    Sitting around - old Cilo road frame to be a ss or fixed gear.
    Sitting around - Old Schwinn Tandemn waiting for restoration.

    Son's bikes (he's 5):
    '03 Specialized hotrock w/16" wheels (his first bike)
    '01 GT Mini - Still kinda big for him
    '04 Redline Mini - Just got it for him, this one fits and is brand new old stock.
    '05 Specialized hotrock w/20" wheels and 6 spd. Just bought this one too, for hitting the trails.

    Don't make me list my girlfriend's kids bikes too, or my buddy's bikes that they keep in my garage. At last count I had close to 20 bikes in my garage.

    I've had mine for a while - It is a 1985 Specialized Rockhopper. All orginal equipment 'cept the tires, pads, some spokes, cranks, and saddle)

    - now I run it on 1.5 slicks & with a Brooks saddle.

    I remember that the first year I had it (85-86) that I broke off 2 cranks - nasty / scary - Nothing like going for a standup start in Downtown traffic and the crank sheers off! - Not once, but twice

    - but they were both were replaced for free. It was one of the first mass produced Mtn. Bikes - back then it looked so strange - now it still looks strange compared to all the new Mtn. Bikes. - But now it is retro - Suntour fricton shifting and all!

    I've got 2-a HT and a FS. The HT's a '95 and the FS is a '98-pretty much down to just the frames and suspensions, tho. Had to upgrade/replace a lot of parts over the years....
