This might be lame, but it could be cool so...

out of every bike you've ever owned, which is your fav. and why?
mine would probably be my yeti dj, its an 06. I built it from the frame up.
w/
fork: Pike 454
wheelset: 325 rims laced to saint hubs.
brakes: saint
shifter: saint
cranks: saint
stem: diablous
bras: diablous
thats the gist of it.

its my fav, because its snappy, tons of fun and i picked each part out myself.

here it is:

Loved my Demo - It just plain ripped. nothing this bike couldn't do. Built on a budget too, surprised me overall.

But Favorite has to go to my new DHi. It just compliments my riding style better. more flickable, corners amazing, and it just shreds. I can't say enough good things about it.

Mine is my Ventana El Cuervo. Picture spec:

2004 Cuervo Med.
Manipoo Swinger 6
2004 888r
Hadley hubs w/823's
Diabolus post, cranks,bars

Picture shows it's "for sale" mode but I kept the wheels. :D Previous incarnation had I-beam seat/post, Boxxer WC, DHX 5.0 with ti spring and Saint Brakes. It weighed 41.5 lbs.

It's my Fav. cause I took it to Whistler 3 times and had the time of my life with it up there. Perfect weather, Garbanzo was new right after I got it, and I got a shot and autograph from Dave Watson! :thumbsup: (Real film picture... don't have it in the computer.)

P.S. Ryan, you didn't say why that bike was your favorite... :nono:

My Yeti DJ as well. It just feels right to me, on trail rides or jumping.

It was a xc bike, but it was my first bike I paid for with my own money, and it only took 4 years of saving. Tons of fun and really got me into the sport

For some reason I can't get past the memory of my Yellow Stumpy (03 I think). It was my first Dually and I had an awesome summer. It was my first US summer, I won a Novice XC race and did some epic rides. I was sad to see it go to pay for a plane ticket

I haven't owned that many bikes, and I got out of riding for about 5 years, but of all the bikes I'd have to say my Tomac 204 was the favorite of the bunch. Although my first 2 wheel bike was *****in, banana seat baby :)

The Chopper



My first custom build. I have another Schwinn cruiser I trash picked that will get redone when I find time, but I think I will keep it more classic. And no, the fork doesn't have any travel. I pilfered a $10 cheapo DC fork from ebay for the lowers and crowns/steere tube, ditched the internals and replaced the stanchions with tubing of the same diameter. Welded nuts into the bottoms of the new stanchions and attached them to the lowers just like stock.
