Seems everyone has a new bike. If not, how old is your main bike?
2001 Giant TCR, which I bought in Rouen, France.
Ground in 30 miles this moring, with a storm coming in from the wash.
Rain, lots of rain, with, at times, Hail !.
Bring It !.
I knocked in a 30 mile ride, after which, my feet felt like blocks of ice.
I could barely walk through my front door.
I Lurrvvvvvv cycling.

“Main” bike is a 2008 Solid Acer (Don’t think they make it anymore).
But lately I’ve spent more time riding my 2005 Kona Stab and my SS – 1997 Fire Mountain.
Obviously I don’t have a new bike every year or for that matter new bikes generally (mostly used stuff for me)… I reckon my little collection has probably cost me a fair bit less than some people would happily spend on just the one bike, and between them cover a fair few more bases than just one ever could.
But the trade off is of course that I don’t get to ride the latest, lightest, poshest new bikes which ,if I’m honest, would be nice but I can live with that…
I don’t think you can begrudge those who can afford it a nice expensive new bike now and then…Posted 6 years agoPJM1974Member
It depends on what you’d define “main bike”. My bike for all occasions is my 04 Enduro, still going strong after all these years. It’s not overtly retro, with SLX cranks, XT nine speed gears, Revelations etc.
My more recent bikes are a 2009 Wolf Ridge and a 2011 Orange Pure 7 frame which I’ve just finished.Posted 6 years ago
