I have a Yeti ASR-sl at the mo, had a few other new hardtails aswell, but find this suits most of my needs.
Ridley carbon road and a cheap Trek road thing for commuting.

I will carefully sidestep the old/new school bikes debate though :lol:

Nope - nothing post '97 at the moment. Would fancy a Ventana El Ciclon if pushed...

New, yet old school in mentality...

My daily beater is fully rigid frame and fork with a Rohloff Speedhub system, Phil front hub and bottom bracket, luv handles, King headset, Thomson stem and post, Brooks Swift saddle, White Industries ENO cranks and Magura Martas.

Such a pleasure to ride, and makes me break out into a smile every time I clean a section of knarly single track that my full squishy brothers end up walking up.

Nothing better than keeping it simple, pointing down trail and stroking hard. :D

cheers,

rody

Well, apart from my 1996 Proflex Beast and my girlfriends 1997 Zaskar I have my newish Control Tech Carbon Mountain Bike, just sitting in my office now cos its too wet to take it out(dont wanna get it dirty!!).

Looking to retire the Proflex though. Cant decide whether to go hardtail, maybe a Dean Titanium(new or old) or Yeti Arc(2005 if I can find one), or go full supension with a Yeti ASR-SL. Really just wanna swap over my bits from my Proflex though, which I think rules out the ASR as its disc only and I cant face buying new wheels and brakes. Decisions decisions.

I'm new to this retrobike lark so at the moment it's only 'new' bikes for me I'm afraid. An '05 Marin Nail Trail SE for the rough stuff and I'm just waiting for a Cycle2Work voucher so I can go ahead and order an '08 Condor Italia for the road.

I promise to add a retro to the pack as soon as I can find the right project, honest!

Only a Scott Scale 60 (2007) completely rebuild (I liked the colour and it had v-brake mounts) and there a Tomac Eli laying underneath my bed.
