- How old is/are your frame/s ?
Raleigh MAX (1995) fully rigid steel, made in England – my way to and from work. This bike was completely re-vamped for commuting after a car ran over me/it in 2006. Drivers insurance paid so I went to town, wheels, drive-train, panniers etc.
Orange 5(2005) new F&R suspension and wheels in 2012 (tax rebate windfall).
Trek SLR(2006) but I’ve only had it since 2008, Road bike used alot initially but barely used these days so relatively glad I didn’t buy brand new.
Avanti Kiss(2010) Singlespeed, Steel, 29er – sucked in by the hype, originally rigid but now with 100mm of squidge. This has been my go to bike for 2 years now despite being fortunate enough to get all the new bits for the five.Posted 5 years agodirtydogMember

Wow, I thought mine were old judging from just about everyone I see on the trail, road, cafes, and races.
Specialized Stumpjumper FSR – 2004
Specialized P3 – 2004
Cannondale R1000 – 2004
I haven’t bought a new frame since I immigrated to Australia. Previously MTB was a succession of Marin steel rigids/hardtails, a Marin single pivot, 3 Specialized hardtails, and road was a Raleigh, 2 Cannondales, and a Kinesis Crosslight.Posted 5 years ago
