- Bikes you've regretted selling
hmm, ive had loads of bikes… The only 2 i miss are my old DMR trailstar, as it was my first decent bike. ( before that i had a 200 pound giant). I Brought that with my pocket money too. I'd love it back now, i only sold the frame for 80 quid.
And the other bike i kind of miss, is my oldish (2005) gt dhi. Best dh bike ive ridden, and i was really wishing i had it when i was in the alps a few weeks back. But then i swapped it for my current trek fuel, which to be honest i love, and ride alot more than i ever rode the gt…. It will still be sold at some point though i'm sure.Posted 8 years agoLionheartMember
My most recent was my Cotic Soul, I am just 'between' them at the moment. Many years ago (35+!) I had a Carlton track frame I used on the road, it was made mid/late 50s, had hand made long point lugs each lug had cuts outs making up the suit of cards, Spades, Clubs, Hearts and Diamonds – soooo wish I had kept it….. 😐Posted 8 years ago
Wish I had missed a Blur 4x!! Don't think I will miss the Yeti or Orange – great bikes but not enough Soul…MofMember
Gary Fisher Sugar here too, would have been perfect for the riding I'm doing now…fitted like a designer glove…best bike I ever had by a long shot. Slightly regret several others too….Yeti 575, under used but still nice and looked brilliant. Merlin Malt 1, cheap but great fun…. sold that to buy a ring for a girlfriend…. never again. Scott Racing… long bike, gave me neck ache looking up at the trail, but it was fast… too fast for my abilities.Posted 8 years agoMunqe-chickMember
thanks to thegreenman, I have withdrawn my Coiler from being sold despite it being broadly similar in performance terms to my "new" bike. I dont need the money, love riding it, have had some great experiences on/with it, and I MIGHT not like my new bike as much in which case I'd be a fool to let it go.
When I bought my first bike in ~'93, I always regretted not saving up the extra and buying my dream bike at the time the Kona Cindercone (in green-titanium, Im sure a retro geek will be along in a minute to correct the year!). I still have my first bike (GT Pantera) as a town/hack bike but it holds no place in my heart…Posted 8 years ago
