What is your favourite bike of all time?
My mk1 Santa Cruz Chameleon with the very first set of 5″ travel Z1 BAMs in the UK. I was a trendsetter me 🙂
If I ever find it again (was nicked from my garage whilst I was on holiday after less than a year of owning it), I will literally kill the nearest person to it as revenge 😈Posted 6 years agomountain chubMember
First time I ever saw a GT LTS Downhill I thought that is beautiful – I wanted one so much as a kid – then I saw a Santa Cruz Super-8 and that was then my favourite! Funny how both are downhill bikes and I ride XC – weird huh.
So i bought a Heckler and decked it out with XC stuff and I love itPosted 6 years ago
So, what is your favourite? One you’ve owned? One you’ve seen in a shop or on a ride? One you’ve yearned for?
It doesn’t have to be the ‘best’ in terms of how it rides, it could just be a favorite because of what it meant, or means, to you.
Mine is a 1996 Kona Cinder Cone. Just the colour and the look of the thing brings back great memories. My mate had one and I wish I had one now…Posted 6 years agooldgitMember
Doesn’t look much, but when I was first into cycling the only images you saw of riders was in Cycling Weekly…and that was in black and white. Then when it was Tour time you’d be treated to colour covers.Posted 6 years ago
An enduring image for me is one of Barry Hoban astride a metalic pink Mercier climbing a sun bleached Alpine road on the front cover of CW.
Just remembered the only way to follow the tour was weekly in CW or those little 1″ results columns mixed up with Bowls and athletics in the papers.ir_banditoSubscriber
my ’95 cindercone will always have a special place in my heart and home (presently in pieces in the loft) after spending 18 months astride it touring.
I’m rather partial to my Voodoo D-Jab.
But I love Flameboy’s custom Ti cruiser. With a belt-drive it would be perfect 🙂
