    GT performer Unsure of year bought off a kid for 25 bucks. I had a blue one w/ white wheels but it looked like this.

    My 1st bike looked like this but it was blue also. It was probably a little smaller since I was 5 when I got it.

    I had a shitty Huffy stone mountain when they first came out. Broke the fame within a year. I then had a Jazz (Treks lower brand in the early 90s) Voltage. I beat the crap out of this bike, but I only did lighter trails and a lot of paved roads. I then had a 94 or 95 Trek 300 (I think) with a Chromoly frame. This thing is on the lighter side especially for a somewhat cheap bike. I still have and may get around to making it single speed.


    My current bike. 07 GT Avalanche 3.0 w/disc brakes.

    Big pic, but i didn't feel like saving it and loading it in the gallery. I used to have one of these frames, loved it. Then my first bmx w/ the 1-1/8" threadless headset was a chrome old style GT fueler, v-brakes and all. I still have the GT fram hanging in the garage, and have been meaning to rebuild it.

    This is my current ride:

    I bought this bike for $400 buck when I was 12. It was my first big purchase with my own money I had made. I rode it until about a month ago when some piece of shit cut the lock and stole it off my front porch. I hope whoever did it burns in hell.

    haha, damn, i had the same one. didnt take my covers off though.
    sadly i was actually too small for it. had to stand on something just to get on the seat and take off real quick. and only came to a complete stop when i absolutly had to.
