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)

^^^^Man, I never thought someone would steal a tall bike. Seeing as there's only a handful anywhere at once, you think someone would notice you one their extremely distinctive bike.

That sucks about tall bike getting nicked. I hope it turns up.

Ok...let's see...

First bikes as a kid were all generic from Sears or some **** because my mom was hecka poor:
-Crappy BMX bike.
-Another crappy BMX.
-Crappy CRAPPY "road bike".
*ditched bikes completely for skateboards until 15 years old.
-Trek 820 Antelope.
-Really heinous old Mantis XC bike but it had the full Campy MTB group which was wild!
-Salsa Ala Carte with XT group.
-Flat black cruiser bar bike with ape hangers with pink grips and bmx pegs for picking up the ladies. Got stolen from my garage during some party we had.
-Bridgestone RB-1 with mostly 105.
-Old Raleigh looking frame/fork from dumpster, my first fixie conversion.
-Really old Bianchi with integrated headset from dumpster, that was second fixie conversion.
-Salsa single speed mountain bike (one of the first five made) with some pretty sick components.
-Peugeot frame/fork that I got from a roomate and was my third conversion.

Current and only bike!
-Detel (???), crappy, old, heavy, lugged frame with hella dents and chips and it's my best conversion yet. Super fast. Super fun.

edit: Oops, forgot one. About 11 years ago I acquired a ReDUMBant which I promptly sold. I did ride it around for a few days though just to see what it was all about.

red and white tricycle.
huffy bmx. solid rubber tires.
murray mountain bike. 10 speed, but the shifters never worked. ever.
another murray mountain bike. found in a ditch. used parts of both murrays to keep one working bike for a long time.
unknown gaspipe mountain bike. built up by me as a singlespeed with parts from:
trek 830 mountain bike with bent to **** frame.
suteki 10 spd road bike. way too small.gaspipe.
schwinn traveler? lugged ladies frame.
schwinn varsity. converted to single speed.
it gets tricky around this time, because i started acquiring so many bikes, both for parts, to sell, give away, or use for art projects. so lets ignore the ones for sale, sold,gifted, being built, and piled in my backyard, maybe i'll just list the ones i ride often enough?
nishiki citysport. 26" wheels, upright bars, 5spd grocery/cargo bike
gitane kilo track.
trek 510 usually single speed/occasionally fixed/occasionally 10spd....this is the bike i use everyday. its the bike i tour on, and the bike i get around town with. it is one of my best friends.
tall bike, made from 2 schwinn road bikes.pink.
if anyone has a higher end, early 80's trek road frame, 57cm, i would like it to be my next...

little red learner bike....once the training wheels came off, I had to have stitches in my chin twice trying to wheelie off of a crack in the sidewalk

1972 20" Schwinn Sting ray... i don't remember the details, but presumed stolen.
1977 27" Murray 10spd... dunno, presumed stolen
1972 Schwinn Pea Picker...still got it. Needs full restoration

'78-'81 i raced BMX for a shop and rode various frames, Redline, GT, SE Racing..and ended up with...
1980 Raleigh Racing...stolen...I had discovered girls, beer and cars by then, so it wasn't really missed...til now..it was a sweet ride.

First bike as an adult..
1992 GT timberline...stolen...D@mn, I only ran in the store for minute...
Next..
1994 Cannondale M500..sold later to finance
1995 Cadex Carbon Tubed MTB..Marzochi (sp?) LX/XT..Stolen...somene jacked my ulock at a 311/hole show..but the next day i bought
1996 Cadex Carbon main tubed/ al rear triangle. a step down from the last but I was riding. this was stolen out of my girlfriends kitchen, during the day, while we were in the other room. damn..At least her renters insurance covered it. Full boat too, I was working in a shop and had tricked it out for next to nothing, and replacement value was 2600 after depreciation. I took some of that and bought (at pro-deal shop costs) a..
1997 Specialized Stumpjumper Pro... Still have it as my only MTB, the only original parts left are the frame, seatpost, and stem. but i am starting to feel old enough to justify the full boinger purchase to be.

I was given a 198? Benotto Modelo 2550..columbus sl..had 600 and tubies on it, but had been in a barn on teh property for 15 years. it got converted to my first ss/fg, still have it.

I bought a 2001 breezer venturi frameset from a friend who had tried to open a bike shop...unsuccessfully..and had it boxed in his garage. I still haven't seen another one. It rides like dream.

1948 schwinn phantom... it was my uncle's, and had been under my grandparents house for 40 years, needs work, but it will ride again.

198? GT MTB...it was abandoned after Katrina, and is stripped to be painted and built up as an 8sd grocery getter

2007 IRO group buy FG


Next up:
touring rig, most likely a surly Long Haul Trucker...before Memorial day
Full suspension MTB..I'm about to turn 40, can i give up my al hardtail now?
Ti or Carbon roadie.. no need, just an itch.

Some hideous looking huffy thing that looked like it was from space
Dino BMX(I think, my brother and I shared it)
Giant Rincon
Specalized Stumpjumber(in the process of converting to ss)
Azuki 10-speed road bike from like 78 or something(used to belong to an aunt or uncle or something)

I only really got seriously into biking like a year and a half ago after all my friends were riding in college, so I went 4 years without really riding(except when i lost my driver's license for a few months after an accident when I was 16)

Some fixed-gear thing (said NO BRAKES on it!)
Junker 16" BMX thing w/ coaster brake
Huffy BMX w/ coaster brake
24" X-Games Airstrike 16-spd, full suspension
26" Schwinn Full-Suspension (the first Wal-mart bike with a mullet disk brake setup I'd ever seen), front wheel catastrophically tacoed in 2 hours, brought it back for refund.
POS Rigid 10-spd 26" MTB, 5-spd after the FD ate itself
Columbia Trailhead Disk (my brother rides that now and gets my trickle-down upgrades)

-----And now the serious bikes begin-----

Iron Horse Warrior Team SE (now a 21-lb race machine)
Jamis Coda Comp (converted from flatbars to a rather long top tube CX/touring/commuter)
Gary Fisher Opie dirt jumper (won at after-prom last year, drivetrain, cockpit and brakes were upraded within 24 hours)
SE Lager (was planning on doing a conversion, got a bunch of parts, couldn't find a decent frame, got a killer deal on a complete bike and slapped parts on during the build)

Geez. That's a ton considering I'm still 17 (but for less than a month now!)

Hardly remember any from my childhood. One that comes to mind was an old german 3 speed.

As an adult,

A Murray POS, which inspired me to get rid of it and get with the program.

A nice 90's vintage Raleigh MTB (robbed the parts off of it for the Cannondale)

A Cannondale Super V (sold it)

An 89 Univega Viva Sport

A Cannondale Super V DH4000 (the first production DH bike) which I still have.

Another Cannondale Super V which I still have. The original with carbon fibre swing arm.

A Raleigh mountain tandem, with a Cannondale Freeride fork

Closing the deal on a Centurion Triathalon today

11) Miyata 912 road bike---top of the line Miyata with full Shimano 600 group came my way, I only bought it for the groupo; nice though, pink/pearl colour and it was damned fast
12) Concorde road bike---picked it up for a great price and rode it as a commuter; loved it but sold it after a year as I had no room for it
13) Specialized Roubaix Elite Triple---I decided it was time for a really nice bike and I bought this bike for a great price; Al/carbon fibre frame with full Ultegra, it is an awesome, awesome bike
14) GT GTB track bike---I liked riding fixed enough to get a true track frame and this one came to me at a great price; pics are in my sig
15) Razesa road bike---beautiful Spanish road bike made of Columbus SLX tubing with a full 600 groupo, this bike is very fast and tight
16) Bianchi Trofeo road bike---purchased cheaply on CL just because it was a good deal; I decided to make it into a hybrid and I gave it to my friend for his birthday
17) Bianchi road bike---bought to be my winter beater fixed ride, so far it is nice but the frame is really sluggish compared to my other bikes, I may sell it in the spring

I currently still own the Ciocc, Razesa, Roubaix, GT Karokaram, GT GTB and the Bianchi plus the Colnago Sport frame----I have way too many bikes.
great bike history above.

i cared mostly about skateboards and cars so my bikes have been few and far between.

1. i remember an orange tricycle.
2. german ketcar[do a search if you dont know]. it was yellow and black.
3. red BMX on white mags with yellow tyres and yellow bar pads.
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.
