I know many of you guys have modest collections...but it seems there are quite a few of us here who have a lot of VRC. Like a lot a lot.

If you had to widdle your collection down to just six bikes. Which six would it be?

Not top six bikes you'd like to own....but which six bikes, currently in your collection, would you keep. Everything else to be sold off.

It's really difficult for me...I'd much rather play 'Pick 12', but this makes you think.

My top six:
84 Potts Custom
86 Salsa Scoboni
85 Otis Guy
92 Raleigh Tomac Sig
95 WTB Phoenix
03 Ventana

BTW, we never referred to any Salsa as a "Scoboni." The Scoboni decal was applied to customs as well as fillet-brazed ala Carts. The models were referred to as "Custom" and ala Cart.

That's awesome...I thought of a thread like this a couple days ago, but then forgot about it...Good one Rumpfy!...I'll work on it and edit my post a little later in the day!!!

I will, of course, not include my modern bikes in the list...they don't count.

Edit - OK, Rumpfy - new ones count

09 Trek Fuel EX 9.8
83 Ritchey Mt Tam
86 Fisher Mt Tam
84 Speed & Research Outback
93 Bontrager Race Lite
87 Ibis Mt Trials

Lets leave the road bikes out of this...and the trials bikes...

I didn't know that. Not sure if I've seen an Ala Cart with the decal.
Thanks for the education! :)

So the filed F.B. fish mouth top tube frames were "Custom"?

:lol: awesome!

Rumpfy, that might be the least painful way to go about it. However, you are unaware of a recent addition that would need to be in the 6.

edit: I'm still chuckling at Nate's great picks.

Send me an email with what it is and some pics. Thanks.

I like Nates list too. It would also mean some great bikes would be hitting the market for the rest of us. :D

I only have to eliminate three bikes to get to six, but it's still fun to play and still isn't exactly easy.

'95 Ritchey Crazy Pete
'87 Schwinn Paramountain Ned Overend Signature Edition
'85 Fat Chance
'87 Mountain Klein
'93 Diamondback Overdrive Comp
'05 Salsa El Santo (primary rider)
