I dont have a picture on this computer, but I have a Diamondback Insight 1, I had gotten a bike from a big box store and the crank bent after a week/8 miles on it. The Diammondback has served me well the last 2 years, has over 400 miles on it already. :biggrin:

Got my son a 18 inch hot wheels bike for his 4th birthday On July 12. So I had to get this old beauty up in running so My wife, son, and I can all ride. She's a 1999 Schwinn PRO-STOCK SE. I had the frame since new and traded it years ago and got it back about 2 years ago and just rebuilt her yesterday from a donor bike.

I have a 2006 Mongoose magnesium/aluminum frame trail bike with disk brakes and adjustable shock suspension.

With the proper leg strength and air pressure in the tires this thing flies!


Similar to this one. It was around $500 when I bought it.

I ride a gray Mongoose Snare.
As far as features vs. price go, this is the best bike I've owned. It has all of the features of expensive bikes (one-touch shifters, front & rear disc brakes, 24-speed etc) for only $300 brand-new.

I mainly use it off-road on hilly terrain but occasionally do a circuit with my buddy on the local back roads. It's geared perfectly to pull the hills and fly when the terrain is flat.
This bike has been abused but is still rolling; I broke the adjustment for the shifter so a few gears won't work and paint is wearing off in some places, but other than that she's held up well.

I am also rocking a late 90's Specialized Hardrock. My bike looks like an antique compared to the new mountain bikes with disc brakes and shocks in the front and rear. Back in 96 though it was top of the line, not so much now :rotfl:

Never posted a pic, but I upgraded my from my late 90's Specialized HardRock to their 2014 model. Bikes have come a long way. Hydraulic disc brakes, adjustable travel/locking front shocks, and the bike is much lighter than my 90's HardRock. You can see my old HardRock in the background.

Mines a '87 Raleigh, still in good shape since it spends most of it's time hanging in the garage. If I were to get a new one I'd get this, a GMC Denali by GM. Saw it at Cosco.

Currently sporting a 2023 Giant Cypress 3. Best beater I could afford. So far it has severed me well. Here's a photo of a bike-packing trip last year - mile marker 0 in DC. Pittsburgh to DC via GAP/C&O trail. 6 days / 350 miles. Best solo journey so far.
