Mountain Biking

Figured I would start a thread where people can post info on their bikes:

Turner Burner
Full XT
XTR disc brakes
King hubs laced mavic rims
king headset.
Easton carbon bars and post
Specialized seat

Zion Singlespeed
Avid discs
XT wheels
Coda Magic motorcycle cranks

Cannondale System Six Road bike
Ultegra build with Carbon cranks

Decent rides but at this point might as well be antiques compared to what is available.

Past bikes
Trek 950 triple butted steel bike full LX 1994

Trek Carbon Hardtail full XTR, King wheels and headset, Atom bomb fork

Mildy impressed with the track bike. You cruise in an out of traffic on that thing while pulling a horse cart?

No way I am stopping the jokes for a few NY/NJ people

hmm... I honestly don't remember many of the details about my bikes once they are built... but here's what I remember without going and checking:

Mountain Bike-
Santa Cruz SuperLight
Shimano xt/xtr combo with SRAM shifters and some bling bling carbon brake handles (avids maybe) and old school non-disc brakes...
recently switched from Time pedals to Crank Brothers eggbeaters...

Cyclocross:
Specialized S-Works Cyclocross, carbon fork with rubber shock thingy
DuraAce/XT/XTR mismatched group (aren't cross bikes always this combo)
Crank Brother eggbeater pedals
Chris King hubs

Road:
Bianchi... now I can't remember what they called it, compact aluminum frame full carbon fork... damn (my favorite ride too)
Campagnolo Record Carbon 10spd groupo, bling bling aztec cable set
SpeedPlay pedals

Track:
Bianchi Pista
sponsor bike... as spec. from the factory (sometimes run a bling zipp front wheel though)
SpeedPlay pedals

Urban Fixie:
Peugeot frame
rear Campagnolo oversized flange rear track hub...
whatever other crap I had laying around to build it with... very fun bike in the city though :0

Tandem:
KHS something Road Tandem
Ultegra/DuraAce/XT mix of components plus some oversized tandem stuff and big ol' tandem wheels

Past bikes
Like I could name all those...

------ Follow up post added March 24th, 2010 03:38 PM ------

I was just thinking I should get a different rover to carry each of my bikes ('cause you can't always ride)...

here's what came to mind:
Mountain bike - D90 of course
CycloCross - Discovery
Road - Range Rover
Track - FreeLander?
Urban Fixie - 88
Tandem - D110

Thanks Barry... there won't be any snow for cyclocross down here so hopefully the mud will be cold enough to feel right

Thanks for the offer, right now I'm thinking I'm not going to race anything this year just get settled into the area and then start racing next year...

I like buggies, but I'd rather drive my rig to the trail...
