Awesome fixed-wheel solid-tired kids bike with army designs (best for skids in entire street) rode from 4yrs old til 7yrs ish

Peugeot Levis BMX (with blue mags) rode from age 8yrs til 17yrs ish

Releigh Lizard (rubbish as far too big, but rode it miles, rode from 13yrs and only dumped the frame a few months back, it was ok for commute and would not break, making it hard to justify chucking away)

Carrera Fury '98 used for trials and street and London to Brighton and everything. Again refuses to break = still got it. *

Dawes Ultra Road bike reynolds tubing circa 1990 - was pink, blue and white, hence looked like both ends of a baboon at once. Stripped and resprayed it last summer, now metallic green with flat bars, BMX brakes and single speed, this is my commuter bike, looks nothing special but is quick and reliable. *

'05 Giant Acid jump bike - external BB, double + bash, discs, slicks, wicked for playing about on, Bedgebury was a pain on it simply due to the miles. *

Mongoose BMX (New style) this was a freebie and needed loads of work, used to be pink (theme developing here) stripped and painted primer grey, looked the nuts when completed. Given to friend last year as no use for it.

'08 Giant Yukon FX dual sus, new and in a state of tuning, front end far too high to begin with due to comedy set of spacers under stem. *

* = Still own
Keep it foolish...
