How old is (are) your bike (bikes)?

Just wondering how long we keep our bikes. My primary bike I bought new in 2005 (NOS 2004 LeMond) and my backup roadie is a 2003 Raleigh Grand Sport. I see no reason to get rid of either of them or to buy another new roadie. I may pick up a hybrid for our crushed stone bike path but other than that....I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Cheers,

Brian J.

R20 is from about 1974.
Cannondale MTB is a 2002, I think.
Electra beach cruiser 2004?
Haro BMX 2004 or 2005
Wabi Classic is a 2010
Windsor The Hour is a 2009

The oldest rideable bikes I have are 1997 vintage. I also have a 'project' bike: a 1952 Firestone Deluxe Cruiser.

My Dakar XLT, main ride, is an '05 (bought/built up on clearance in '07).

My still-to-be-rebuilt hardtail is (no screeches or catcalls, please) a Pacific, sold through Wally World in late 2000-mid 2001. Hands down, the BEST product Pacific has ever built. 19" HT frame that weighs in at 4lb. even, 6061 alu. If it had been made with disc tabs, it would have been nearly perfect.
