Since I'm new to this site just a question. Is there a place here to share with everyone, all the stuff we used to have that has since gone ie knicked or otherwise dissapeared ? Is this even to boring to suggest ? You see I've had so many bikes over the years that, for some reason I still long for, and then I find this site and I have an urge, call it some kind of therapy to list all the nice shiny bits and bobs i once possessed. Am I weird ? Do I need help ? Why wont the asshole who pinched my old Bonty give it back boo hoo. Phew !

C'mon then - why not use this thread for that one bike/part or whatever you really wish you'd hung onto.

I'll kick off with a drop dead gorgeous pair of polished Cook Bros 170mm cranks with 110bcd black spider - they'd look fantastic on my Clockwork project. Sold them with a Kona Roast jump frame :cry:

My 150mm steel Flexstem. Felt sorry for a mate BITD so when I got a set of Tange Shockblades I gave him the stem.

i had a polar heart rate monitor & a pair of original WI hubs nicked from a student house.
weirdly i regret selling the m6 wheels to healthy! :lol: obviously regret giving away the cook bros stem :shock:
I gave my brother my M900 brakes when I moved to V brakes & he later sold the bike for a minimal amount :(

not retro, but kinda miss my 05 yeti arc. probabilly wouldnt ride it much as i'm a xc fs convert :wink: but it was a nice ride 8)

I miss my Saracen Killi Flyer - not the bike itself which was the E-stay version, circa early 90's ? But it was kitted out with some yummy wheels, lovingly made up by Dave Hinde with Mavic Dakar hubs and MA40's, also had a Mavic chainset and lots of nice Ritchey stuff. Some negative vibe merchant pinched it from my flat. I think over the years I've had at least 5 or 6 bikes knicked - string them up I say !!!!
