We had a conversation perk up at our office that I think almost everyone here can relate to.

I'd love to know what was the bike that you wish you never sold?

You can read about mine here:

For road bikes it would have to be my Klein Team Super, and for mountain my Sandvik DBR.

I let my first Whyte JW4 frame go to a genuine Romanian gypsy woman in 2011,who was collecting scrap metal etc.The bushes were worn so I thought I should just start again with something new and more modern. I bought a Voodoo Canzo and it was awful. The only solution was to buy another JW4 frame in 2016 and build it up. A short while later I saw a PRST4 frame on Ebay and guess what? I'm happy again.

I haven't regretted selling a bike yet. Every one was either the wrong fit physically or just didn't fit into the long term plan.

That being said, I certainly wish some were different sizes. One in particular I would have kept forever if it was just an 18" rather than a 17" a true unicorn.
