It might be good to have this post/thread as a bookmark page of sorts to the threads about each of those brands or models. For example, there's a thread dedicated to the Trek MultiTrack series of bikes here (which includes the 750 listed in this one). I made a thread about my GT Vantara here, but the Vantara series doesn't appear to be all that popular and there's not a broader "GT Vantara" thread like there is for some of the others, so you could provide links to individual bike threads for those less common models.

Sure, that'd work. I'll see about hotlinking in the above list over to some of the model specific threads. The list will undoubtedly grow and we'll make it a great resource (hopefully)!

2002 Cannondale Silk Adventure 400. I have done some changes on it over the years including putting on even wider 44mm tires. I rarely ride it anymore though.

It's a looker. But, she's too young for this thread.

Here's a link to the Specialized Sirrus thread.

BTW, it's not Diamondback, it's Diamond Back. They made cool bikes back in the day.

EDIT: Here's the Bridgestone XO thread. And the Diamond Back thread.

@prairiepedaler, are you ignoring my helpful links, or did you not see them? /snark

Trek multitrack 7500 1999 the best one, many original parts. From my personal collection of my photos. Credits to me.

No pics, but I once owned a Nishiki Optima XRS, 1994. Came with Shimano CX400/CX700 components. So you can add that to your master list. Double butted cromoly frame rode really nice.

Hi, perhaps being Brit you could bring us up to speed on those Saracen models (pre-2000) ?

Bianchi Volpe, Axis, Equinox, Backstreet
Fuji Del Rey
Colnago Master Alloy, City Bike
Koga-Miyata Cityliner, World Traveler, Traveler
Marin Point Reyes, Redwood
Mountain Goat Route 66
Nishiki Katmandu
Panasonic CB 5000, CB 4000, CB 3000, South Street
Raleigh XC80, XC50, Moonshine, Nevada
Univega Activa Ambition
