Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Couldn't agree more. Sounds exactly the Lupa i had, spare the color and my derailleurs were 105. Sorry to hear about it getting stolen. Mine was a few sizes too small, so i had to part with it :/ Canada sure can make a hell of a bike.

I've owned way too many department store BMX bikes, beach cruisers, and 10 speeds as a child to be able to count, so I'll start from my adult spark in cycling interest.

1) Raleigh Grand Prix - totaled when someone ran over it as it was locked up.
2) Bottecchia conversion - traded for the frame below
3) Raleigh/Carlton track - supa fly, and the nicest bike I've owned, but it was way too small. traded for the bike below.
4) Frayzee Paris World Sport conversion - still have it, though it's waiting for new tubes
5) GT Force road bike - my current daily workhorse

I'm going to list bikes I've owned as an adult as I had far too many as a kid.

1995 Trek 730 Multi-Track (my favorite)
1997 Raleigh R-500
2007 Trek 7.2 FX

Really wanting to pick up a 2011 Salsa Casseroll but I'm not far enough into biking this time around to justify the purchase. Maybe in 6 months to a year I'll get whatever model is available.

~4 Diff wheelsets and tire combos - MajorTom tubulars mix of Ultegra & DA hubs - Challenge tires

Fixie Bar bike/beater sorta:

4. first 'real bike' dyno detour. hi-lighter yellow. black mags. i was ballin in the burbs
5. haro air master. flourecent orange.
6. first geared bike - some red CCM MTB from canadian tire. i started skateboarding seriously at this time so this bike got abused when it was used. left outside in the backyard one winter, etc...
disease transmitted via father to son and i became obsessed with cars. american V8s first, then turbo VWs.
7. jump forward like 14 years. bought a metallic gray free agent dirt jump bmx to rip around on downtown toronto. instantly destroyed the black mags i put on for nostalgic reasons. realized i am over 110lbs.
8. 2 years ago wifey tells me to figure out how i am going to keep in shape now that i am getting older. we go on a trip to visit my family in holland. i get a tattoo by mike giant and notice his bike has no brakes... get home and start buying parts and assemble my first FG. 06 langster comp frame painted white/black fork. veep dees, etc...
9. try co-workers giant OCR A0. i need gearzzz too. CL purchase 1990 cannondale SR600. love it.
10. discovered i disliked langster comp compared to traditional geometry after trying others bikes. sell langster frame for ridiculous amount of money - thanks random CL guy. buy old vicini road bike and convert. loose hipster points[if i had any - ewww langster sloped top tube].
11. vaca in bay area right now. buy 1991 cannondale SR600 because i miss riding that much.

thats it.
so i parted that 91 cdale after about a year. wheels still reside in the basement.
12. cramerotti tt 'funny bike' 650/700. build completed but bike dismantled and parted almost immediately due to realization my back doesnt do that and tt bikes are dumb.
vicini retired due to structural concerns. RIP.
13. 09 felt breed sscx. i love.
14. mid 90s giant CADEX ALR1 105 build. didnt ride. i just sold this.
the 90 cdale is singlespeeded. internet cries.
15. miyata 612st. rack, fenders, triple crank --street cred plumments into negative values.

Looking at this list, I'm a lifelong Shimano guy.

...various cheap-o bikes

1985 Schwinn World in grey with pink decals. ~$200 Very good bike for the money, I rode hundreds of miles on it in late elementary school.

1986 Bianchi Portofino touring bike in dark green with yellow decals. $425 exactly ( lawn mowing money). Very very nice looking bike. Front and rear racks, Shimano something or other with six in the rear and friction levers. Cantilever brakes. I joined a bike club and rode probably 50 miles/week on this. The first bike I really loved. I think my parents still have it stuffed away in a barn.

1988 Miyata 912 in white and black, first real racing bike. $650. Birthday present. Full Shimano 600 (ooo, SIS!) , Nitto cockpit. I really loved this bike. So fast and smooth. Great frame for the money and a cool paint job. Here's a picture of the exact bike I had:

1989 Trek in blue with pink decals (again? Remember, this was the eighties). ~$900. I wrecked the Miyata in a race and messed up the rear triangle (and my collarbone). Bonded aluminum frame. Full 600 Ultegra (the gruppo with the blue and green rectangles on it). "Matrix" wheels, but I bought a pair of Mavic tubulars for racing. I never really liked this bike for some reason. Raced the **** out of it, though.

1990 Tommasini Comp ($800) from Colorado Cyclist with full 7400 Dura Ace ($700), Modolo cockpit ($300) (the really cool looking grey one), Selle San Marco Regal ($100), Campy "aero" seatpost ($65), a bunch of different wheelsets ($????). Quattro colore paint, which still looks awesome to me. Chrome rear triangle and fork. Columbus SL. This bike was simply the **** in the early nineties. At this point I was racing every weekend. I did some world championships qualifiers centuries on it, a crapload of crits. ...and then I stopped racing.

1991 Kona Cinder Cone MTB. $600 exactly. I went to college in mountain biking heaven. Road biking fell by the wayside. Off-white paint with black flecks. Full Deore. OK mountain bike. Got stolen.

1991 Trek Mountain Goat. $300 piece of **** for riding around campus. Got stolen.

1992 Cannondale M700. ~$600. Mostly Deore LX. I replaced the rear mech with XT. Loved, loved, loved this bike. Great forest green color with silver decals. Very light for the time, but still tough. I rode it every day for hours in the mountains, met people on it, scared the **** out of myself on it, etc. Stolen in 1994. (It turns out my college had a real bike theft problem, they busted a bike theft ring involving security guards and fences in Cape Cod my senior year. Also, I was a dumb ass 18 year old who left his bike unlocked. This one was stolen when I left it for literally about 3 minutes though, so I can't really take all the blame.) I was somewhat pissed that this bike was stolen.

1994 Specialized Stumpjumper. $1200. Full Deore XT, silver paint. Air/oil fork. I finally started keeping my bike in my room and had this one for years and then gave it to my brother. OK mountain bike. Didn't love it like I loved my dearly departed 'dale. I had several scary/bizarre/thrilling/"altered state"/epic/wtf adventures on this bike, though so it will always have a place in my heart.

And then, a short break...

...165 pounds

... 200 pounds

2001 Trek commuter with Shimano Nexus internal gearing. $500 Had it one day and it was promptly stolen out my high rise building's "secure" bike room. I really liked riding it that one day, though. Filed a police report and AmEx gave me my money back.

...235 pounds, peak of my fat-ass ness. I'm. Never. Going. Back.

2002 Diamond-Back bike trail bike. We will not speak of this boat anchor. It's still hanging in my garage.

I start running and swimming again.

...145 pounds. Yes! Back in fighting trim. My wife wants me to gain weight. Nah.

Last year I bought a 2006 Madone 5.2 off of a friend for $750 and start riding with a group again. Very fast and smooth bike, extremely light and comfortable. I like the traditional forward rake of the top tube (compact looks like ****, I'm sorry). 6600 Ultegra which is great stuff. Not sure I trust the carbon fully... I'm definitely a retro-grouch. I feel I'm getting close to the shape I was in in high school which is probably bull****, but hey let me dream. Did my first tri on it a few weeks ago and did well! I like the Madone, it's a great frame as far as I can tell. Don't really love it though, not sure why.

2010 Mercier Kilo WT. Dark green. Stock except for the $20 Crank Bros candy pedals. I love this bike. It's like a combination road/cross bike with hybrid slicks and track hubs. I'm sold on single speeds (maybe because I live in Illinois.. no hills) 48X16 even works with the group. I do 25+ MPH on a packed limestone trail on it while furiously dinging my little Incredibell. I do out of the saddle sprints on single track in the foggy dark with my MagicShine blazing. I'll take it on group rides and still be able to pull... occasionally. I've beat the crap out of this bike this year and loved it. I rode it today. Also, riding this bike makes you seriously strong when you go back to the Madone. This may be up there with my Tommasini and Cannondale as my favorite bike of all time. It's fast, fun to ride, maintenance free, tank-like, very smooth, fits like a glove and cheap, cheap, cheap. Goes to show you it's not about money.
