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)

i'll play.

-tricycle. duh.
-a few big wheels... including a CHIPS one and a dukes of hazzard one
-20" huffy bmx coaster brake bike - first real bike when i was 7
-20" huffy bmx with a freewheel... i snapped the headtube off dirt jumping it
-26" huffy mountain bike. i rode the crap out if it during jr. high.
then i didn't ride bikes really in highschool. i played lacrosse instead. gross.
-20" redline 340 comp at the start of college. my first nice bike. i was car-less and commuted on it like an idiot for two years. too bad i didn't realize how fast road bikes were.
-some old 26" women's cruiser i welded a curved top tube onto and painted sparkly blue, threw on tiny cranks and 20" wheels and fenders, a banana seat, sissy bar, and big handle bars... (all parts off of a kid's huffy "sea princess") bing! low rider, foo. it rode like crap and sort looked like crap too. hahaha
-schwinn continnental turd that was waaay too small for me and was prompty replaced with...
-70's peugeot u08. the bike that got me really into riding and into the speed that can be had on a road bike. i turned it into my first fixie in 2002. i still have it and ride it and love it.
-iro jamie roy fixie fgg #738 sold it last winter.
-60's jc higgins cruiser. equipped with streamers and basket.
-then i got into mountain biking and pieced together a 16" hardtail with a triple clamp 4" sid (hahahaha) this bike was waaaay too small for me. it was made completely out of multiple friend's donated spare parts. appropriately, i called it the ****.
-then i got my guerciotti sl for 5 dollars from a goodwill auction and restored it and built it up geared. yet another bike that was too small for me. i sold the frame and fork to a friend recently.
-86 bianchi pista. i got it at the 2004 master's nationals for 300 complete. poor me.
-norco "wolverine" geared hardtail. i still have it and is the loaner bike for visiting friends that want to ride trails.
koxx level boss 1100 stock trials bike. my friend gave me this frame after getting a ground up trials frame made. this bike is so rigged and never runs well, so it's sitting in pieces at the moment. i think every time i ride it i break something on it. i'm not too good at trials.
-a friend and i build up a women's schwinn varsity as a chopper. i have it set up with a 26" wheels, banana seat, sissy bar, ding dong bell, big bars... it's fun.
-iro highlander. rigid ss. i loved this bike soo much. i just sold it to a friend due to my acquisition of a 29er.
-douglas cyclocross bike.
-88 de rosa with slx. my absolute favorite bike i own.
-on-one inbred 29"er. it is waiting for my wheels to be built and then waiting for me to ride the piss out of it.

my next bike might be more of a townie track bike or maybe this oooold path racer (i guess) from the early 30's that my friend is holding for me at his shop. i want to build up new 700c wheels for it, attempt to keep the skip tooth drive train, make it rideable again. we'll see.

My first bike was a killer blue & yellow Schwinn Stingray my folks got at a yardsale for my seventh birthday or something. I still have the facial scars from trying to ride that pup off a curb a few weeks before I should've.

I then procured a Diamond Back Super Viper and got heavy into BMX racing, age eleven, before putting it all on the back burner in favor of many radical years of skateboarding. My brother had a wicked GT Mach One at the same time - she will make a repeat appearance. Be patient.

Somewhere in here I had a Giant Iguana, a Nishiki MTB held together w/ duct tape, a Miyata or some s**t (stolen from my Vancouver front porch while I slept three feet away), a goofy little kids' bike I found on the street (which had like 110 mm cranks and was my 10-mile-a-day "commuter" for six months. stoops.), and a Schwinn Varsity...

At 21 I resurrected the Mach One and fully shredded the streets on that for a couple years before buying a suspiciously hot Peugeot off the streets of Brooklyn for $30. I didn't feel so good about this, but c'mon, someone else would've bought it and I probably ended up putting 25,000 miles on that old thing. It got me into road biking and paid my bills for a year. A few years after that I built a sweet Trek 1100 at the SF Bike Kitchen which made another cumulative trip around the Earth and earned me a pittance as well. Not to mention helping me quit smoking. It was sexy too. Yay Trek 1100!

Now: 1984 Cinelli SC road bike and Bareknuckle track bike. Everything else is gone except for the 1984 GT Mach One which you can have when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Ok, I'm gonna give it a shot:

- big wheel I got from the thrift shop, it was awesome until the front wheel split.
- murray bmx bike - it got all rusted out after a few years in the WI weather.
- blue freestyle bmx bike I traded some toys to a kid for, it had pegs, wheeee - I traded it away for legos and gi joes after I got the:
- old '70s gitane 10 speed with ghetto-fab faded purple rattlecan spray job. all campy, with suicide levers haha - got stolen from my front porch in madison when I was 11, boooo!
- '87 or '88 Gitane Defi - my first bike from a bike shop! Stolen from in front of a museum in Chicago, boooo!
- '91 or '92 mongoose iboc comp - it had the sweet splatter paintjob, and I put farmer johns on it and wrecked the trails in tucson for years - my mom probably donated it when she moved from AZ.
- '92 Fuji funny bike - it had a 650c front wheel, a really cool curved sloping top tube, and a blue and white crackle paint scheme. my dad got really into triathlon and I got his old bikes after he was done with them.
- '91(?) nishiki funny bike - a frankenstien, it was awesome. I want to say it had a 24" front wheel. It was a brutal bike, but it was fast and all my dad's racing friends thought it was cool, so I took it when he offered it.
- '80s Cilo/Vitus bonded aluminum bike. frankensteined all to hell, one shimano lever, one campy, campy front derailer, shimano 600 rear with nukeproof carbon fiber hubs. had this one for about 7 years, the longest of any bike I've had. I gave it back to my dad in 2003 with a full 8speed dura-ace sti group.
- '80 Specialized Allez conversion - good times. sold to a friend
- '93 DW track bike - back to the sloping top tubes. got it from a VP at the company I was working for, total score. I'm gonna fix the rear wheel and ride it to class tonight, it's the fastest bike I've ever owned.
- IRO MarkV - green, 3-speed sturmey-archer, cetma rack. it hauls.
- KHS Aero - the orange one with the sloping top tube. it was fun, but flexed too much when climbing. sold to a friend.
- '99 Kiyo Miyazawa keirin - I could write a love letter to this bike.

This is pretty cool, there's some major bike P*rn here.

Tried thinking back but i've obviously forgotten a few nams for good reason as they were so bad:

1st bike, can't remember the name but do remember crashing into a fence on it.
2nd bike, Puch Super Invader BMX, had to go to the tip last year as it was unsaveable at over 20yrs old and well abused.
1st mtb - rigid purple thing that was real cheap
2nd mtb - rigid silver thing that was real chaep with huge tubes
3rd mtb - rigid black thing that was cheap but pretty cool sold to a friend who never paid me for it 2yrs ago, bike was pretty old.

All my more recent bikes can be seen here www.skunkcycles.co.uk

Fuasto Coppi Treviso with ultegra/105 groupo (about 7yrs old now) loved it and mainly ridden road ever since just sold frame to a friend.

My Dad was a stingy bastard.
My first bike was a wee-lad's fixie. No brakes. No training wheels. Solid rubber tires. Much blood on asphalt.
An "Open Road" steel BMX. It was a tank. It had solid aluminium mags which I cracked (along with some teeth) on a quarter-pipe. Gift to the neighbors.
Mongoose Californian BMX (back when they were decent bikes) - stolen
Mongoose Supergoose Al BMX Cruiser
Trek 560 (wrecked)
SR ProAm frame (made by Suntour) Singlespeed. Dad cured me of any desire to ride fixie.
