- Bikes you currently own that you'll never sell
My 1993 rockhopper comp, all original parts bar the mud guards, one of the tubes, saddle and seat post because they were stolen one night (yes including the brake blocks, tyres and still one of the tubes). It may get built into a period build after my university but it is far too small for me so may end up being cleaned up and retired on the wall.
My forme hiver cx will also be ridden to death until the frame disintegrates and then it will end up on a wall with all of the achievements it has managed around it. (The fred, soon to be the 3pcx, HONC when I can manage it)Posted 4 years agofizzicistMember
My Mk3 Soul will have to be removed from my cold dead hands. It flits from being a burly 140mm beast with 2.5″ tractor tyres to a flighty XC machine. Love it.
I ride my 29er more these days but the Soul is just the most fun thing I’ve ever ridden*.
*With the possible exception of the lass who lived over the road from me in 1999.Posted 4 years agograhamt1980Member
My 2 cove’s will never be replaced I think.
Got a blue, Med, G Spot, a Purple Shocker.
Both epic bikes and get used fairly frequently. Just can’t see myself ever justifying buying them again considering everything.
The bandit and PA however will probably get replaced when I get bored (Although the PA did just get a new frame, simply because I wanted a red frame).Posted 4 years agosolarpoweredMember
I would love to post a picture of my bike! I love the pants off it cos it makes me feel AMAZING! There’s just no way I’d do what I do on that bike without it quite frankly!Posted 4 years ago
It’s obviously not as posh as all of your bikes but I don’t care. Your bikes are truly beautiful (@Will – yours is a little favourite….)! In my mind, mine is just lovely and I don’t think I’ll ever sell it!
The bf is going to kill me.. He showed me how to post a picture – I’ve forgotten! You have to trust me, my bike is just beautiful! 😀
Ps; I only own one bike….rendoMember
Certainly my early pompino will always be kept as it is just such a great winter/commuter.
Regret selling the first edition of the Giant TCR. The anodised lime greem/purple one with the carbon wheels. expect that to be quite collectable sometime.
surprised to see the on-one 853inbred listed here. i have one of these too it doesn’t get used much as i dont off-road much, but i thought these couldn’t be given away (which is why i still have it)Posted 4 years agocynic-alMember
Where to start!:
– no explanation needed.
My Shand, one of the first, and 8 years old now:
I’ll not sell this, probably becuase no one would buy it, and I am workin on a replacement:
Also my Brompton:
And (VN Yukon, perfect commuter/light tourer/training bike).
Getting a Roubaix SL4 next week, hopefully that’s a keeperPosted 4 years ago
