Helping You Ride Stronger, Look Better, and Feel Great!

My Bike Collection

If you were ever curious what kind of bike I am riding, here’s a list of them.

I wanted to put this on here because sometimes I refer to my bikes when I’m writing something, so this gallery will give you the full story…

2004 Trek 1500 Road Bike

That is my 2004 Trek 1500, which qualifies as a recreational road bike. It’s a typical aluminum road bike, but it happens to have a team paint job, so some people think it’s a carbon Madone or something. It is definitely not as light or as lively as one of those bikes, but it works.

I have to laugh when Bicycling categorizes any sub-$2500 bike as a recreational bike that is “good for club rides and maybe your first race.” I race this old thing and regularly beat people who are riding $5000 bikes.

2005 Specialized Stumpjumper Hardtail

This is my racing bike for XC mountain bike races. I bought it late in 2005 after my beloved Giant XTC SE2 was stolen. It’s a solid bike, but man I wish I had full suspension sometimes! Or 29″ wheels!

1998 Trek 800

This rigid steel bike was my first real mountain bike from a bike shop. I still have it.

2001 Giant XTC SE2 Hardtail

This machine was my first ever racing bike, an aluminum hardtail with front suspension. I have the fondest memories of it, but unfortunately it was stolen.

2008 Cannondale Scalpel Team

This was an amazing bike. I don’t think there is a better full-suspension XC racing machine.

2009 Cannondale CAAD9 5

A nice, stiff aluminum racing steed.

 

I also have some BMX bikes and a collection of “antiques,” but we’ll save those for another day.
