Seems everyone has a new bike. If not, how old is your main bike?
A few old pics:
My Kona, circa 2003ish before I revamped it.
Early 2006, just after rebuild but pre-Fox.
My old play bike. Built around a Trek 7000 (I think) frame that a mate was skipping. I had it stove enamelled black and built it up with a full Deore groupset, an RST 281 triple clamp fork, Magura HS33 brakes, Mavic 517 rims, Titec finishing kit and DMR V8 pedals. Everything bar the frame was brand new but bought in sales, I think the whole bike only cost around £500 to put together.

Frame and wheels (inc. brakes) are nearly 3.
I’m a serial tinkerer, so everything else has been replaced at least 2 or 3 times. First build and current build –
May well become classic Trigger’s Broom this year if I get a BFe and bigger forks as I (half) plan to.

My main bike is a 2005 Giant NRS,bought new in 2007. I also have a 2003 Hardrock,but I hardly use it these days.My other mtb is a 2005 Enduro but that’s a dust collector,I think it’s over biked for stuff that I do over here but great for the Alps.Posted 6 years ago
Roadbike’s a 2010 Allez & probably gets more use than the NRS.julianwilsonMember
Last year i replaced my 2001 nrs/xtc team with a 2006 yeti asr sl. Bits on it are a bit newer: 2009 fork, 2008 brakes. But that is my ‘flash’ bike!
Posh-ish frames and bikes are well expensive: If I broke up all four of my bikes and sold every last part on the classifieds here, I still couldn’t afford the rrp on the 2012 equivalent my frame.: yes, just the frame -then I’d have to buy the rest of a bike to go on it.Posted 6 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
The bike I ride most (currently) is a 12 year old bottom-of-the-range Trek road bike. My “posh” bike is a 4 or 5 year old Whyte 46. My other bike is a 14 month old Ragley made out of a combination of new and old parts. If I could only keep one it would be the Ragley, but if I had to get rid of one it would also be the Ragley. Not sure, therefore, which is my “main” bike.Posted 6 years agoz1ppyMember
2006 Prophet 2006
2007 Superlight 2007
3rd gen Inbred no idea of it’s age, bought 2nd hand and I’ve owned it 4/5 or more years?
Only bike I’ve ever bought new is my 2004 Gemini
Nothing new appeals to me & all of the above (FS’ers) are so much fun I can’t see any point in replacing them.Posted 6 years ago
