I know this will generate some comments and I know some guys in the plus 50 bikes but I am giving this some serious thought as I contemplate culling some vintage Mtn Bikes...
Up to 18 bikes now (have owned well over 40 in the last few years), and now feel I should focus on the local guys (Paul Brodie Chris Dekerf, Derek Bailey)
Current inventory:
5 Brodies (90/91 Climbmax, 93 Expresso, 93 Sovereign, 95 Libido)
4 Rocky's (88 and 90 Blizzard, 91 Experience, 94 thin Air)
3 Kona's (92/94 Explosif, 94 Hei Hei)
91 Ti Macmahon
98 Moulden (Cdn- made fillet brazed Reynolds 853)
99 Rick Lobster Team DS (5 made) Reynolds 853
89 Ritchey Ultra
89 Breezer Thunder
95 Dean FS prototype (Aluminum)

do you have any pictures? :)

And i think its depends on varying factors, how many you feel you need, how much space you have etc.

So which one will you sell first?

those Kona explosifs would be first, very easy to get them in the 92-97 years locally, I have had 5...
Then the Dean FS protype ( 1 of a kind )
after that it would be tricky...

Don't ask me! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have potentially 19 all working, when I finish the ones I'm working on. I said enough is enough, at around 12 or 13. :oops: :facepalm:

I recently culled my herd including some serious ‘keepers’. Quite liberating actually and I’ve not looked back.

I tend to float around 12. And that’s too many really.



















She’s watching.
