in order from 1995 to now. * indicates bikes i still own
 
1. race incorporated aluminum
2. gt vertigo*
3. hoffman condor 1" with superfork
4. s&m sabbath v1 with standing platform
5. morales bts
6. s&m ng dirtbike
7. triple gussett standard sta
8. kink revision b
9. wtp 4 seasons
10. fbm nighttrain
11. 2002 t1 barcode (broke the cable stop off the frame and tip plus warrantied it)
12. fit series 1
13. s&m euro bb v1 stricker
14. navy 2002.5 t1 barcode (got my frame from warranty including the updated style of cable stop that t1 would start using in 2003)*
around this point in time i stopped riding due to health problems, but in my downtime i bought the following:
15. fbm livewire*
16. fbm angel of death nos*
17. standard trailboss/trls250 nos (unsure of which one i've got, i'll check if it has the tell-tale seattube when i can)*
then after a few years of not riding, being sick, etc i got back into it and went through these frames:
18. t1 sfa v1 (by v1 i mean the first integrated/spanish version and not his integrated seatpost barcode signature)
19. t1 ruben custom/proto/1off/whatever that ruben had done so he could run the flybikes bashguard
20. s&m dirtbike reissue
21. fbm capone*
22. fbm autopilot* (my all time favorite handling bike. gonna ride it til either it dies or i die)

edit: forgot the series 1 and dirtbike reissue

edit #2: i'm almost about to take a weednap, thinking about life and shit and suddenly realized i forgot the first 20" bike i ever tried to get really rad on besides doing just coaster brake skids & stand up pedaling wheelies. it was some ancient rusted 1970s/1980s early 20" steel bmx frame & fork my dad ganked from the actual literal garbage dump and slapped a set of pink mtb style bars from a girls' 24" magna someone dumped in the alley behind my house with grips i made from rags and duct tape. i jumped that motherfucker off the top of the picnic table in my back yard and did a chinplant on the sidewalk. what made me remember this bike was thinking back to which crashes caused all the different scars on my head/face.

I only listed ones I can truly say I rode.  I have owned a few others that may have been ridden one time, two at most, before I sold or traded them because they felt wrong.  The Holmes 22 is one that should be on the list of traded bikes, but it only took a dozen small part swaps to get it to the point that I no longer hated it.

I don't know how you guys remember all this stuff.

I went through a stage of swapping frames with people all the time, I must have had 20 frames in the last 5 years.

I went through that phase real bad. not as ready to buy bike stuff anymore ha. guess I'm finally growing up.

Trying my best to shoot from the hip.  In my 20 years of ramping I have rode (in order the best I can): 

Mongoose Menace (broke)
Haro Supra (complete)
Standard STA
Standard 125  (broke)
Standard STA (Billy Graham sent me his old STA when my 125 cracked because he is a G)
Kink Phantom Lord
Kink Freebird
Standard Lengthy (last version)
Another Freebird (broke)
Kink JC with American BB...  was having my LBS knock out my BB one day, long story short, they ended up using a small punch to tap out bb, punch ended up going up into the cooling hole into the seat tube and punched a hole out of the side (duhhhhh).   So....
Kink JC with Euro BB was sent to me as "a replacement" even though the other frame was perfectly fine.  Covered the hole with a sticker and my friend rode it for a few years. 
Terrible One Wessel
Solid KP Ripper (my buddy's not mine.  But he let me ride it for a bit)
Kink Sidepipe (Dirty Dan sig)
The Take Ivy (one of my favorites of all time)
Tree Little Buddy proto/sample (75 HT, mid BB, custom dual cable routing)
Kink Doyle in blue
Sunday Ian brakeless 20.75
Replaced blue Doyle with Chrome...for obvious reasons.
Sunday OG 24" Model C
Another Sunday Ian, but braked and 21" TT.  I also hacked off the pivotal part to run a normal seat post. 
Sunday 3rd Wave
Sunday Conductor
Sunday 24" Wave C
Flatware Tango
Sunday Forecaster...only rode for a few months and then swapped to
Sunday Funday 2 (the camo bike)
Gave away Conductor and started riding a Sunday '11 Scout complete bike.  Swapped the copper colored Scout for......
Catty Woods Scout complete.  Rode this till it got stolen then.....
Sunday 2012 Scout complete.  Liked this bike so much I bought......
Sunday Rooster (had same geo as 2012 Scout complete).   Still ramping this one currently.
Swapped out the Funday 2 frame for a Chrome Broadcaster.  Wasn't into that thing so much so I sold it and bought.....
Red 2010 T1 Barcode (Solid made).  Frame was damaged somewhere along the line so I didn't end up building it up.

I don't ride anymore, so I doubt I'll add to this list unless I can win the lottery and buy some new robot knees.


- Huffy MJ12. Weighed more than me and I still mullered it.
- Commencal Locale. Beautifully balanced and I loved it. Regrettably swapped for...
- Federal Nation. An unwieldy tank and I hated it. I think I may actually have thrown it away.
- Volume Flatline. Too long for me. Rode it for about four years, until it felt like home. Stolen.
- Wethepeople Addict. A reasonable complete.
- Wethepeople Phoenix. The absolute tits. This kept me riding for about another year, when I definitely should have stopped. Wished I could have kept going, if only to ride it more.

In order from what I can remember, i'm sure there's a few more though...

COMPLETES:
Diamondback Ignitor (Used to race this badboy while kids were kitted out with profile n shit, I bought a pair of Fishbone pedals for it once, but apart from that I just used to smash the race circuit with it regardless of it being a shit, shit bike. haaaaaa!!!)

Huffy MJ12 (fuckin' tank like Liam said.)

GT Bump (first bike I actually started buying parts for, back when grips were meant to sit underneath the bend and smaller bars were key.)

WTP Addict (Frame is still going today as far as I know, basically the poor mans 4seasons.)

S&M LTF in 20.875 (Cracked the fuck outta the headtube, never got warranty on it. Size felt so good though,  20.875 was a boss size to have.)

Fly Pantera 2 (rode it for a day, rode like shit, sold it.)

Metal Rebel Contender (Lightning bolt dropouts don't like icepicks.)

Federal 1066 (LOVED this frame, especially in the purple colour it came in. Wish I never sold it.)

WTP Ovoid (SUCH a sweet frame, wish I never got rid.)

Sunday OG (still running to THIS day. It's about 10th hand and I've tried everything I can to break it, and now it's going into retirement to become an art piece.)

Sunday Vinnie Sammon (Just bought off ebay and waiting for the courier, quite excited to be honest. Been waiting to get hold of this frame for a long time!!!)

Deluxe V2 (21.25", new) 2010 - present.

Both great frames, I don't grind or do anything big so don't need to replace things very often. Reckon the Deluxe will see me out. My ideal frame would be exactly the same only with seat stay brake mounts (maybe even V-brake mounts). 

Complete frames before that:
Some sort of weird Diamondback Y frame

I got it used, but I think the frame is a bit of Bikeguide history in itself. I know Tony Harrison had it, and i've seen MEAT mention its been quite a way around the UK and changed a lot of hands.

Post by: RighteousBMX on March 24, 2014, 07:50:01 AM
Murray Mudslinger complete, mentionable only for the awesome mud guards for the drips and it probably had fenders but I can't remember

Trek Subdude or something like that, light and chrome. I ended up riding this frame again while the MJ12 was out for warranty and I liked it.

Huffy MJ-12, hi-tensile rear end piece of shit. I'm just remembering now that it did have some pretty cool built-in chain tensioners where there was a little wheel cut out in the dropout that you would roll up or down, am I imagining things? It was a really shitty looking yellow frame but didn't feel too bad I guess.

Standard STA OX, the only bike that ever got stolen from me. I never want that feeling again. It was stolen in front of a store and in its place was a Diamondback Viper with one of those black/red plastic Hemmorhoids. I almost puked.

Sunday Wave that I bought on sale in '08 has taken everything I've thrown at it and then some and I still love it. I feel like I could ride this frame forever but I am wanting to try out a Soundwave.

1. ancient 1980s Schwinn Predator that I pulled out of the trash circa 1993. Skyway Mags!
2. random crappy garage sale Diamondback with a standing platform. this was my "street bike" because my Predator was my flatland bike.
3. Morales flatland- trans green with a Kore fork, Graveyard bars and sprocket, etc. I saw it last night as a friend owns it now.
4. S&M Sabbath- combined street and flatland bikes into one bike. GFR Redneck, Castillo bars, T1 sprocket, 3/16" chain, etc. I miss that Sabbath!
5. Trek Subvert 3.0. wanted a street-er bike than my Sabbath. meh, gave it to a friend eventually.
6. Dirt Bros Trailer Park- gave up on flatland and just rode street after this.
7. Kink Freebird- rode this once and didn't like it.
8. MacNeil Ruben- raddest frame ever. cut off the gyro tabs and cut down the dropouts.
9. Integral Expo- bought this cheap and thought it would be better than the Ruben. meh.
10. Simple Debut- great sale on Sidewall. most modern bike I ever owned. sold it while in ATL to buy mtb stuff because bmx in ATL was boring.
11. Premium street frame from 2003 or so. just bought this to get back into it after a two-year break.

indication of how frugal I am- the only of those frames I ever paid full retail was the Morales ($200 new) and the Trailer Park, and that was $200 straight from Dirt Bros. the Sabbath was purchased at my first bike shop job around 1998, the Integral was technically new but super cheap from someone on BG, and the Simple was a NOS closeout on Sidewall. Everything else was used and one of you might have sold me some of those frames.

Stunned by the number of frames some of you guys have gone through. I've been riding for about 15 years, and there's a good chance I'd still be on the S&M had it not been taken from me haha.

I will admit that I only had so many due to being stubborn, stupid, and playing catch up on what I had missed.  I was too stubborn to buy a new bike when I started back in 2010.  They were overpriced in my mind.  I had also just joined the bmx museum to find a few parts for my old Predator.  Caught a mid school bug and tried to track down a few frames that I wanted when I tried and failed to start back in 2001.  Won a Hutch from Porkchop BMX and traded it to get my first "new" bike, a Fit TRL 3.  Decided to listen to "experts" and bought the 21" S&M CW2.  Always felt long, so I bought a 20.75", but the geometry felt different.  Traded a 96 Dirt Bike to get a 21" WTF and hated the WTF more than anything I have owned.  Bought a 20.5 ATF to help a friend who was getting a divorce and loved it except that it fits my future step son better than me.  As soon as Joe Rich sent me an e-mail about the new Barcode frames, I sent the deposit and started saving for parts.  The Barcode will be my last frame/bike for a long time as I am about to turn 37 and have multiple injuries that limit what I can do on a bike and there is nothing I can do to improve most of them.  I no longer have a bicep tendon in my right arm, torn rotator cuff same arm, and the week before Christmas, my doctor informed me that I had snapped the T-1 in my neck in the past and C-5 and C-6 are bulging/pinching nerves.  I let off more than a few of the frames/bikes I have owned/rode, but most have just been fun projects to fix up to sell to purchase the next project or help someone out who needed a bike.

Post by: badlight on July 14, 2014, 10:19:44 AM
Haro Revo.9 (first bike)

Macneil Heaton

 Macneil Friemuth with a euro

Traded that for a Haro Nyquist Sig bike frame with a euro and these crazy hydroformed tubes and gussets. That frame was rad.

Volume Dinosaur. I think I got this frame brand new for like 50 bucks. it was dope.

Hoffman Taj(Deebo?). It looked like a barcode. Was stoked, until I actually rode the damn thing.

Federal Hamilton. I burnt this frame in a fire. It looked awesome.

WTP Mono, with dropouts made of cheese

Psykopath team frame or something, it was probably the weirdest fucking frame ever.

Macneil Whitton 1 and 2, which is slightly ironic because I always kinda thought Whitton was a bit of a douche. The V2 was dope though.

Fit Hawk v1 for all of a week

WTP Phoenix.

Take Ivy, the only frame on this list that I actually broke, and probably my favourite of all of
them.

Bought a used FITED which hated, so I traded it for...

FBM PW Moto. The acquisition of this frame signaled a relatively short but sweet descent into a period of drug induced intoxication.

Fit s3.5- this frame signalled the end of the drugs, for the most part.

Fly Tierra
 
Fit Eddie C without the built in post. I hated this frame. I liken it to a limo with the front seat of a fucking clown car.

Bought a Mutiny Rune after this which was the rest of the goddamn clown car. I am not too sure what I was thinking when I bought a frame with a 13 inch backend. I was probably high.

Bought a used Kink Tocco off a friend of mine, that frame was awesome.

Traded the Rune for an S&M ATF, sold the Tocco, and rode the ATF all last summer.

Bought a Credence MOD in 21.5, which I really like, which probably means I'm going to break it.

I think that was all of them. In all actuality, the only one I'd want back is the Take Ivy v1.

I'm a little late to the party but I've owned a ton of bikes so I may as well add to the list. I started riding about 17 years ago at the age of 10. I got a paper route so that I could buy my first BMX bike and not ride my sisters hand me down pink huffy p.o.s. All through middle/highschool I had numerous different frames and would swap them out every day after school and ride something different each day. At 15, I got hired at the local bike shop and I went on a frame sampling frenzy. I had a 6 year period where I pretty much gave up BMX due to a herniated discs, broken neck, the loss of my left lung, cancer and making a push at making a career of racing downhill.

This is not necessarily in chronological order but after 11 concussions my memory is less than reliable, so bear with me. At some point in time I'll make a list of every bike I've ever owned inlcuding road, dj, bmx, DH, MTB, CX and so forth.

First real frame was a powerlite p19. Cracked that, then came a

Macneil Ruben that I had forever, I'm sure its still alive somewhere.

Macneil bibi, felt great for 6 months till the headtube cracked off.

Macneil Whitton v2, felt great till the chainstay snapped.

Haro Convert. Only had it for 6 months, its was good.

Then came many various Norco frames, mostly rev's, with a seige and a couple custom team only ones thrown in.

And now I'm riding a deluxe sacre bleu. The back end is real long, which I didn't think I'd like, but turns out that I do.

2002 - Schwinn Supermatic (20.75"). It had the same angles as the Miron signature but was made of hi-ten steel. It must have weighed 9lbs or so. I polished it so frequently that I wore through the paint on the top tube.

(http://ep1.pinkbike.org/p4pb235959/p4pb235959.jpg)

2004 - Wethepeople Pony (19"). I wish I kept this frame. If I am not mistaken, Hamilton rode one of these when he was filming his 'A Day Late and a Dollar Short' part.

(http://www.global-flat.com/upload/parts/2004-11-12-20-52-25wtp_01_Pony2.jpg)

2007 - Twenty French Kiss (20"). This was a fantastic frame, but I suspect that mine had bent chain stays. Winstanleys sold a batch of them off for £80 each, and I am convinced that they acquired them as faulty stock.

2008 - Wethepeople Ovoid (20.25").  This frame was marketed as a 'Euro street' frame. It had a very high stand-over, and if I remember correctly, the back-end was rather short.

(http://www.albes.com/ProductImages/frames/wtpovoidframe.jpg)

2009 - Sunday Ian (20.5"). After becoming obsessed with Ian's riding, I bought one of these second-hand. I liked it, but it was a touch long for me, and I think the head-tube had been damaged by a previous owner.

(http://www.albes.com/ProductImages/frames/sundayianframe.jpg)

2009 - FBM Cardona (20.5"). This frame did not suit my riding.

(http://s30.postimg.org/mqoqbnqg1/tumblr_l76ylj_Fzc11qd30zeo1_1280.jpg)

2010 - Federal Hamilton 2006 (20"). Although it was rather heavy, this frame was great to ride.

(http://cfs1.tistory.com/upload_control/download.blog?fhandle=YmxvZzIyMjExQGZzMS50aXN0b3J5LmNvbTovYXR0YWNoLzAvMjcuanBn)

2011 - Federal Renegade (20"). I bought this frame because it was, to all intents and purposes, an updated version of the 2009 Hamilton.

Crappy mongoose 2002-2003ish

Haro 540 Air (first real bike!) 2003-2004ish

S&M Warpig (bought on ebay ~2004)

FBM Livewire (sold to Gary on here) 2005?

FBM Deployer (had a removable head tube, only frame I ever broke, also conveniently one of the first FBM frames with 6 month warranty) 2006?

Sunday first Wave (still have it on a shelf) 2007ish-2009ish

I have some updates....

My new current ramp machine is a custom Iowa made STA with the gas tank gusset and brakes on the chain stays. 
My new current roast bike is an S&M made T1 barcode in 21" tt with welded on mounts. 

Best of both worlds.  Super stoked on how both of them ride.  I even did the rear end test where I stood on the rear triangle and tried to get it to flex, both frames were stiff as a board.

On a related note, I just noticed the below frame on eBay, and unless I am mistaken, it was the first BMX frame to have an integrated headset. It was made by Dirt Master in 2000, almost five years before S&M popularised them.

Pictures soon, I promise!!  I am in the final stages of dialing everything in.  I am going down to STL to the Tree HQ next week and I am going to grab the rest of the parts I want to finish the T1.  I still need to finish tensioning my new wheel set that I am putting on the STA as well as waiting on a pair of cranks to show up.  Then that rig should be done. 

My final step is the rubber department.  After riding Odyssey tires for the past 8 years or so I sort of want to try something different.  The gum Cult tires with black side walls is my current first choice for my STA.  But I'm not really too sure what I want to put on the T1.  I guess we will find out.

That Dirt Monster isn't really an Integrated headtube. It used some large regular sealed bearings pressed into the headtube, basically a bottom bracket for a headtube.

Hey Bobby, are you still working for Full Factory? What made you pull the trigger on an S&M/T1 and a Standard? P.S. Those Cult gum tires slide on any surface.. they're pretty much the worst thing ever.

I think we have a winner in the Worst Headtube Design category.
Does anybody here have any experience with these? It looks like those bearings would be subjected to a lot of sideload punishment.

Stupid eastern-esque fucks, risking our safety for monetary gain.
