I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

GT Performer (complete bike)
Schwinn Hydramatic Comp (complete bike)
Federal Nation (snapped)
FBM Live Wire (sold it)
S&M Black Bike (stolen)
Federal Hamilton (stolen)
Sunday Wave 2

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.

Is that Vinnie you got off ebay brand new? or used? still a great pick up.

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.

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.

Was the Standard navy blue? If it was the one I think it is, you should definitely try and dig up some pictures because that thing was too nice.

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.
