50mm UMA rims, Ringle hubs, fatback (e13) crank, B27 pedals, X0 twist, X0 RD, SLX FD, Hayes hydros, black sheep fork 100mm spacing. It's a bike, I ride it.

its not really my favorite design. It takes too long to get the bike situated with no side to side wobble. But it is very stable and the bike doesn't move as much as a traditional seat post clamp style stand.

Okay, I'll play show & tell.... My 1st MTB in 1985 Cannondale SM600
Image

26"(f) / 24"(r)
Roughest ride ever, stiff beyond belief, small rear wheel = bad idea.
-------

Long term favorite - '91 Salsa Ala Carte
Image

Earned title of Flyin_W from regularly sailing OTB, it's short WB makes it lightning quick.
Converted to SS for riding with da pooch.
Bontrager composite fork was one of the best rigid forks made.
Now committed to 29's, it gathered dust, sold to a VRC enthusiast who restored & rides it.
--------

First 29er '05 Gary Fisher 293
Image

From the Salsa it was like going from a Ferrari to a Semi, +3.5" WB.
Rigid to FS took some adjusting, and on tight N.E. trails I ate more dirt than all years combined.
For the $ best way to try a 29er, ME lbs' had none - imported from NH.
---------
Snap... WR Frame (warranty replacement) '08 Gary Fisher Hi Fi Pro (29er)
Image

Shorter WB, and a better riding faster handling bike.
Rebuilt wheels with WTB LD Trails on OEM hubs.
28h rims and/or carbon stays made the rear end feel loose.
---------

First true SS - '10 Kona Unit
Image

Bought complete bike, built new wheels (Flows/Hope) for tubeless, love it so that I replaced all parts.
Lightning fast like a CX bike, short WB, short stays, steep H/A.
Gets ridden 90% of the time.
---------

Snap... Third WR Frame '11 Trek Hi Fi Pro
Image

No-mo carbon, and much stiffer, bike tracks so much better than the earlier FS 29ers.
Not yet a believer in PF92 BB's or on the integrated q/r - der hanger.
Built 2 new wheelsets P35 on DMR's // Flow on Hadley's.
----------

Next....?

Ok, I'll play. I'll post a chronological list, as best I can.
My 1st real MTB was a big box sports store purchase while in college with one of the first Rock Shox Quad5 forks--I beat it up and sold it to a buddy, who still has it, as far as I know. It was also the first time I got the upgrade sickness (XT vbrakes, etc)
I then bought a Giant Iguana ('02, I think)--beat this one up, as well, and it was well-loved. Giant has a special place in my biking heart because of it (you'll see why below)
Image
Then I got a '05 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo--sweet bike, was very quick. Did some crazy trips on that bad boy.
Image
At the same time I had the GF HKEK, I also scratched up some funds to get a frame and make it SS. Some guy on CL had a steal, and it was a Giant, so I sprung for it--this baby was light (for alloy--something like 21lbs SS) and very quick. '09 Giant ATX Pro (not sold in the US, only available from Taiwan via eBay at the time, as I recall).
Image
I eventually made it into a 1x9 and sold it as a 23lb race bike to some guy on CL (frame was a bit harsh for me)

THEN, I got serious--I wanted to go get a SS-specific bike, so I found ANOTHER CL gem for $350--my beloved '05 Bianchi SASS! This baby has seen suspension, it's seen fat tires, skinny tires, alt bars, short stems, etc. Someday I hope to throw some 650b SS wheels on it. I have not sold this bike, nor do I imagine I ever will--if I were to only have 1 bike, I think this one would be it.
Image
Then I figured, why not get a 29er, they're the "new rage", after all? A guy on CL basically gave this bike away to me, and I made it rigid with the Niner CF fork (very nice, but eventually taken off). This took to to my 1st SS endurance race, and made me a faster rider than I ever thought possible. This frame is currently on the market to fund other projects.
Image
While I had the 29er SS, I figured it wouldn't hurt (my knees) to have a gearie around, so I got the Soul Cycles Dillinger frame via my local forums, and built it up 1x9. SMOOTH (for aluminum), which really shocked me. Wasn't a fan of the EBB, so I sold it recently.
Image
Right about 2 years ago, I decided to start commuting to work. That's when I bought this beast. '94 Scott Boulder (Tange Steel--smoooooth), still has the 8spd XT Drivetrain that those Vintage guys drool over.
Image

And now to the others in my current lineup:
Voodoo Bokor 29er HT 1x9/SS. Stan's Crest/Hope Wheelset, Reba 15TA, XT Cranks, X9 Der/Shift, T20 CF bar, Thomson post, etc I guess I would consider this my "race bike", although at 24 pounds (w/pedals), it's not really that light.
Image
'10 Specialized Epic currently 1x9 w/650b Stan's Arch EX Wheelset, XT Cranks, X9 Der/Shift, FSA CF Bar, etc--I AM SOLD ON 650B!
This would be considered my do-it-all bike. Here in TX we do have some terrain that warrants full squish. I was pleasantly surprised to find out it weighs in at 26lbs with pedals.
Image
'06 Fuji Cross Pro--I live near lots of gravel roads & paths, and I put slicks on it for road rides, as well. Ultegra Brifters/Rear Der, 105 Front Der & Cranks, Fulcrum Wheelset, Syncros Seatpost, Avid Shorty brakes--this was my 1st road bike build ever. Gotta have something for when the trails aren't open, right?
Image

Now that I see all these, I can see why my wife thinks I have a problem.

I couldn't find a picture, but if a picture is worth a 1000 words, surely a video is worth more than a facepalm.

We've all been there, for sure. I once went through all 600-ish pages of the pics on empty beer's post your singlespeed thread.

Straitline Silent guide
XT clutch
XT Brakes
Monarch RC3-Enduro rollerbearings
Fox 160 Float RLC- modded
Reverb
Goodridge lines throughout

Definitely, mine.

The first bike I owned was a K2 Evo. It was love at first sight. Went to a bike store an hour plus away to check it out and put it on hold. Long story, but I was heading out on vacation and in between jobs. Fast forward to said vacation, got a call from a friend randomly as I was pulling into Sedona, he asked if I really wanted that bike, yada yada yada. Of course, couldn't wait to get back and pick it up. This was early March I believe so there was still snow at home. I get home around midnight two weeks later, go up to my room and flick on the lights. Laying in bed waiting for me was my pretty girl. I've seriously got the best friends!
They'd taken another road trip and picked it up for me. Those were some damn good days.
Anyway, to the pics. Here she is the morning after ;)
Image
Not much to look at, but she had potential. A few years, many different iterations and a couple more pounds, she turned into this:

And many smiles were had.

What a cool thread; loving seeing everyone's past and present garages.

Don't have any good photos but here are some of the 9 or so bikes at the house:

The heavyweight champion of the house, the Yeti ASR7.
