I sold this a few weeks ago and kinda miss it already. My Allez is obviously a nicer bike but it's not as fun, seems a bit boring.



yes those are yellow jim c's.

might look like a pos to you but it was my first "real" bike - a 1993/1994 mongoose villain. bought it with my own money when i was 14 (may of 1994). picture taken in may of 1997.



profile cranks & sprocket, haro tires, khe bars, heavy tools forks, fishbone x-ufo, izumi chain and suntour xc-II copy pedals are long gone.

also...

s&m ng dirt bike:



had araya 7x  and super 7x rims and gt dx copy pedals. :(
still have the frame, forks and stem.

i really wish i had more pictures of it. there was a time when it was tan and had a s&m pad set and black skyway tuff IIs with skinwall v-monsters. about a year later it was metallic red and had 2.2" dirt monsters (on the araya wheels) front and back. that was back in 1999/2000, btw.
loved the bike, but it was heavier than a friend's "heavy as f**k".

deluxe:



replaced with a shorter pantera v4.

tnt longfellow:



loved the looks but the built quality was utter shit.

fit s3:



i would have kept it if it had chainstay brakes.

se racing assassin:





one of the very first. if not THE first. i still kick myself for selling it to 3rd gear on vintagebmx. such a beauty.  :(

gt pro series:



i decided to only keep 1 race frame. sold the gt and kept the standard.

Third



Staats Long Jumper
I think I have all the parts I could put this one back together, but that would mean disassembling my Beringer


S&M Holmes Next Generation. First "expensive" frame. Still have a bit of this bike on various other bikes of mine. Frame is chilling out in the shed.

Brown Series 2, one of the first batches with the integrated headsets, this thing was rad.

Sunday vinnie, wish i didnt swap this now



Haha, This is the only frame I'm probably ever not regretted selling. Mind you it was my 4th Sunday and I had ended up with my Hickerson.

20" Sunday Vinnie.


Alliance PSI - This is still in circulation somewhere after lending it to a friend, trying to track it down.


United Feva


21" Sunday - Hate the geo on 21" Sundays. Swapped this for a 20" hamilton.


Mutiny Soldier - First aftermarket frame, my dad scrapped it in a shed clearout. He was meant to scrap an old diamondback...
Funny that 3 pegs are starting to be trendy now.
