I ride a Cannondale Raven 2000SL. Except for the original CODA brakes that came with the bike, it's been a great ride. Oh yeah, I switched out the CODAs for Magura Louise discs...

My hardtail/commuter is a 2000 Kona NuNu. the parts are:

The wife made me sell the older bikes and the bmx, they were taking up valuable "space".

My baby - A cro-mo Trek mtb customized my way: Drop bars, bar end shifters. Because I am a flat lander, I ride it with a road triple, and a 13-30 six-speed rear. I have a rigid fork and fat-mama tires. Fast on the flats, handy on the inclines, too.

I ride a 2001 Gary Fischer Mamba... its an odd name, but its a great bike. its a hardtail, has post Moderne front shocks, shimano acera gears, and great brakes. I love it... I bought it for 310$ a little while ago with the Gary Fisher "fishtail" bar ends. I plan on buying a 1996 GT somethin or another, full suspension downhill bike, I am gonna get it from a buddy at work, he rode it for one summer and then got lazy, so I am gonna get it and start up downhill racing, if anyone knows anything about downhill racing, please reply to my string titled "Downhill Racing" I have some questions about it..

I'm riding an old Proflex 755. I've upgraded a few components here and there, but I'd love to own one of those new bikes that I've reading in the mags all year.
With my house renovations, there isn't much room in the budget for a new bike. I have a plan though. If I upgrade the frame on my wife's bike this summer, I should be able to get a new frame for myself this winter...and that should start the ball rolling.

Mookie, you are in the groove, man!

Anything to justify overspending! I am with you 1,000%
Whatever you spend on her = more you can spend on the bike!

Sounds great every time I hear it!

Servus!

Well, lemme see....

A 18'5 Velodrom custom aluminum frame, 2000 RS Judy SL with ShockWorks springs, Full XT drivetrain, DT Onyx hubs with Magura Julie discs, front and rear. Ritchey Pro stem, bar, seatpost. Time ATAC pedals.

I still have the old TREK 7000 for running errands around town that I plan on putting a stiff fork and slicks on but financial woes have prevented that for another month.

Obviously you kids all have trouble making your bikes last...

I drive a 1988 (eighty-eight) CycleTech Crossroads MTB complete with the first ever Scott tri-bar, bar ends, blackburn lo-rider front pannier rack, MEC rear rack, and mud guards.

With toolkit, four empty paniers, and two empty water bottles, the airport people once measured it at approx. 20kg. You guys would have to ride a century to get the exercise I get in a trip to the corner store.

Best of all, my frame apparently still has 12 years left on the warranty.

i ride a Bianchi BaSS. I'm the third owner of this bright green beauty. i love the singlespeed action and buying used means i got the bike with upgrades like Chris King headset, thomson seatpost, Raceface bottom bracket and Salsa skewer for a little more than half of the original retail price. Plus it already had some scratches on it when i got it so i don't feel so bad when i add more.

Funny thing though, it's a Bianchi. But it doesn't have a single Italian part on it.

jus got new frame, wheels and front barke,so here goes:-

Azonic DS-1 16.5", Marzocchi 01 Z4 air 100 forks

Hope XC ti hubs Dt spokes F519 rims,

Hope enduro 4 185mm front brake, XTR rear with carbon booster and avid SD lever,

Raceface stem and seapost, Titec low riser bars, spesh BG comp saddle, shimano PD-M536 pedals

XT shifters and front mech, XTR rear, LX hollowtech chainset with full set of raceface rings, XT 34-12 cassette PC-99 chain.

it kind of upsets the jumpers and Duel riders round here cos it's set up like a single track trail bike, with triple chainring, computer and long seatpost, but it's wounderfully sharp and sprints very well.

1988 Schwinn KOM-10
Schwinn team red-white-and-blue colour scheme
Tange Prestige II CrMO
Sugino cranks 48-40-24
13-26 7-speed SunTour freewheel
SunTour XC hubs, derailleurs and thumb shifters (friction mode)
SunTour RollerCam front brake
under-the-chainstay Shimano U-brake
motorcycle-style Shimano brake levers

(I'm a hard-core retrogrouch. My three road bikes date from 1960, 1980, and 1982. I would probably get something with at least a front suspension system if I did serious technical offroad work, but the trails I ride are pretty tame.)

Update:

Since I first posted on this topic I have gotten a Kona Stinky and sold the ManoMano. The Stinky is stock except for:
Titec Berserker saddle
Avid Discs fr and rr
WTB Motoraptor 2.4 front tire
ODI lock on grips
Front wheel is a Sun Rhyno lite on a XT hub
S&M platform pedals
I got rid of the granny and big ring in favor of a Black Spire chain guide/tensioner. So I'm running a 1X8 with 32t and 11X32.


Here is an updated pic.

GT Aggressor 1.0 Not a bad bike, not top of the line but tough as nails so far.

Added bottle cages, bar ends and toe clips. Thinking about getting a road bike also in the future. I've never owned or ridden one before and would like to give it a spin.

Thanks Fubar. I love it, but I have been seriously neglecting her (as in not riding her) in favor of the Surly. I made it up to her though, I just took her to Colorado for some beautiful singletrack attacks. She performed flawlessly. I'll post a ride report shortly.
