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)

from what i can remember

white handme down with training wheels with removable top tube to change from girls bike to guys bike--no idea what happened

black and gold BMX style 20" huffy with coaster brake--no idea what happened to it

blue and white splatter huffy MTB -- destroyed it when i jumped up the curb at my parents house and the deraileur went into the rear spokes

1995 raleigh m-60 - got it as a birthday present in 8th grade this bike was the main bike i used for everything until i graduated college- just recently put track ends on it to run as a SS- I'll never get rid of this bike

2003- Iron horse warrior MTB- bought before grad school to use as a commuter do everything bike- still have it and have upgraded it to my MTB only bike

sierra road bike- given to me by my girlfriend- converted to SS- crashed and ruined the fork- my brother now has it as i built it back up with a new fork

meral fixed gear conversion- weird ass frame with french threading---first fixed-- sold still see it around town occasionally

fuji fixed gear conversion- my daily rider now

raleigh sprite fixed gear conversion- total pos built up using left over parts i had-- suicide hub mtb front wheel brakeless--good times

mongoose BMX-- bought it off craigslist for fun

schwinn frontier hybrid- in the process of turning it into a cruiser with a 3speed SA coaster brake rear hub and banana seat

thats all of them i think...

Middle and High School: a campus green Varsity. Used it a lot around town.

Grad school: some sort of road bike. Got it free from an in-law. I have no recollection what is was. Did not use it much.

Currently: I will limit this to bikes I actually use regularly:
- Nishiki International 10 speed.
-Bridgestone/Kabuki fixy with northroads and big grocery racks.
-Peugeot MTB fixy. Crappy weather bike. Please steal this one
-Raleigh Record fixy. My main road fixed gear. Might replace with the Bilenky I just got.
-Fuji Espree fixy. 53x13 gearing. Just to see what gearing like this is like. I am not man enough to use it much.
-Miyata 5000 MTB fixy. My good MTB. But I use it as a errand runner around town mostly. Cool blue chain and chainring.
-Trek 330 12 speed. Used to be my main geared road bike. Might sell or convert to fixed gear. Anyone interested? Has been displaced by...
-Handmade Bilenky Sterling. All campy. All cool. Not sure if I will leave as is and replace the Trek or go fixed and replace the Raleigh.

here are my first two:


then:
-90s trek mountain bike
-90s specialized mountain bike
-specialized expedition hybrid
-'80s takara road bike
-2006 Diamondbike road bike
-1991 Specialized Allez converted to fixed

I haven't had as many bikes as others. I thought about it and realized that it's probably because I'm pretty short and I've always been really short - no need for too many upgrades.

1-1970 -tricycle - parents gave it to some other family
2-1971 - blue big wheel - broke it
3-1973 - a gold bike with training wheels - outgrew it and gave it to a friends little brother.
4-1975 - Purple Bike from Sears with the bannana seat (when I was about 12, stripped it down, painted it blue, added a small seat and the cool BMX padding). Bike to school from the ages of about 10 to 14 - broke it accidentally by "ghost riding" it into a brick wall on purpose and broke the fork.
5-1981 - A schwinn ten speed - parents must given it away.
6-1983 - Schwinn Unicycle - used in my short-lived career as a professional juggler. I think this one is still in my folks' garage somewhere.
7-1984 - Blue Nishiki Olympic Sport - Used to ride 9 miles each way to high school and back, until I got a car at age 18 - Gave this to a friend of mine in college.
8-1988 - Nishiki Colorado Mountain Bike - rode the hell out of this thing in college. Sold it to a friend in 1995
9-1992 - Cannondale R600 Road Bike - used to train and race triathlons. I never really rode this bike that much until I CONVERETED THIS TO FIXED GEAR IN 2007 AND I RIDE IT ALL THE TIME NOW.
10-1995 - Specialized Stumpjumper hardtail - rode the hell out of this and did a lot of races and night mtn bike riding. - Gave it to a friend in 2000.
11-2000 - Specialized Stumpjumper FSR - Still have it.
12-2004 - inherited my grampa's old 1961 Capo race bike that I have fixed up pretty good. - Ride it every now and then.
13-2006 - Specialized Roubaix - use it on club rides on Saturdays and for other long rides.

Cronologically (early dates are approximate):

1964- A blue girls hand-me-down that Dad welded a pipe on to make it a guys bike. Painted green.
1967- Full-sized Firestone Speed Cruiser/coaster brake. Dad gave it away.
1970- Sears spyder bike. Dad gave it away.
1973- World (Japanese Schwinn) Traveler ten speed. A car and I had a face-to-face confrontation at speed. Bent the frame and fork.
1989- Trek 830. After almost ten years of hard riding and up-grades—the chainstay broke.
1994- Schwinn Stingray Fastback five-speed ($40 at a yard sale—damn near new). Gets ridden on the 4th of July. I don't know why.
1998- Trek 970. The $100 up-grade replacement for the broken 830 (Trek honors their warranties). Still a very nice bike.
2006- '04 Jamis Quest NOS. Got me on the road again. A fine bicycle.
Bilenky Tourlite (on order).

This is gonna be tough. I'll try and remember.

-Trikey

-Big wheel

(blur)

-Some chrome framed X brand BMX with a 1 piece crank, red anodized everything and a coaster brake. I loved this bike. Once got my shoelace wrapped around the pedal axle and took a tumble. I couldn't get out of it because the coaster brake wouldn't let me backpedal. For a reason that I will never understand, this kid that was generally a grade A ****** helped me out. He ended up being the FedEx driver for my work and I'd occasionally wonder if he remembered how much of a dumbass I was that day.

-Some black splatter painted X brand BMX with 1 piece crank that I somehow broke the frame on. That bike must have been a piece of crap because I was a little dude at the time.

-Huffy MTB with sidepulls that I hated. The teenage metalhead neighbor guy had a killer Mongoose that he'd let me ride sometimes. He ended up being one of my soccer coaches when I was in high school. It was weird seeing him sober without a ponytail. Sellout.

-Magna MTB with cantilevers and SIS shifting. I thought I was the ****. My parents sold this one at a garage sale when I went to my one year of college. For some reason, it made me a sad panda.

-First bike that I paid for myself. I wanted a Klein, but couldn't afford it. I got some sort of Univega MTB with my minimum wage riches. I thought I was the **** again. Bright red CRMO frame with STX-RC components. I decked this guy out with anything cheap and anodized that I could get my hands on.

-Sold that when I was 17 and got a Trek 6000. Once again, I wanted a Klein, but couldn't afford it. This was right around the time they came out with the fatty tubes. I was so excited to be on aluminum, and looking back on it this thing weighed a ton. This old bird stayed in my stable for 9 years, but I finally got rid of it in the great bike purge of 2007. Went through a ton of changes and I still kind of miss it.

Moved out on my own and lived in numerous places with basements or garages. This is when things get crazy. I'll just list off what I can remember, because I probably owned at least 30 bikes in the course of 5 years.

- Univega Viva Touring SS convert
- Blue Viscount of some sort
- Cook Bros BMX cruiser. So awesome.
- Numerous Schwinns of all varieties dating from the 60's to 80's. Mostly Continentals, Racers and Le Tours, but nothing amazing.
- Tiny Miyata 910 that I turned into a 1x9 for my then girlfriend/now wife. It killed me when this got stolen.
- Beautiful Ross Professional fixed conversion.
- Trek 610 that I still own. My main conversion and one of the two bikes to survive the purge.
- A couple of Columbia cruisers.
- A barn find ancient rust bucket of a cruiser. I couldn't ever figure out who made it.
- Vintage Rockhopper. Insert Chuck Norris joke here, but in lieu of "Chuck Norris," say "Rockhopper."

I finally built myself up a pretty damned good pile of stuff I didn't need and got engaged. Suddenly I was moving to Seattle and had a valid excuse to get rid of everything. I donated everything but the Trek conversion to a local shop and packed my bags. Now I live in the NW with a wife, a dachshund, a Trek conversion, and I also picked up that Klein that I always wanted when I was a kid.

I'm sure it probably could have been. It was destroyed when I garbage picked it, and it was only slightly less destroyed when I donated it.
