I thought I would put all my Barracuda's together for a few photos.

O just rub it in will you..hahha..NICE! But I need to ask,do you ride all of them or have a favorite and the others just sit around...I know that is how it is with my roadbikes and my Fs mtb which is why I gave it to my wife to ride.

I try to ride all of them a little bit. I plan on riding the A2R on the rough stuff. The A2M is quite the cherry, so I hate to beat it up too bad. The Comp is a lot of fun to ride. And the XX is cool to show off on.

That is good that you feel that way,seems like when I walk into the bike room my hand just goes for the Cuda..it is the one that gives me the most joy in riding. When I look at all the bikes you guys have built I feel the need to do another build but worry that I will not ride it...I thought about a singlespeed just to run around the neighborhood because of no need for gears plus platform pedals would be nice or a 29er to see if the ride really is so much better...Anyways you have a very nice fleet of Cudas...do you ride anything other than them?

Really nice Mix!!!

You must be bringing the misses flowers or spa treatments! It wasn't that long ago that you were a momo-Cuda man... now you're moving in on crazed Cudahead... 5 is the magic number and we put you in Cuda rehab!

Thanks for all the postings, it's been cool to see and hear the stories along the way!

Adios amigo,

Would be more than happy to take one off his hands if that would keep the crazy away....Heck his so called cheap beater would be more than fine....With those bikes I would be happy with crazy

Dude.. Between Neo-pop and I, we can find you a Barracuda.. I pass on a lot of them due to not being my size. What are you looking for?

I was joking with that line but thanks,Neo has giving me heads up already but it was a no-go due to wrong size...I normally get a little mad money from Income Tax time (If the Wife lets me ) then I will be back at it for real on next build...if I can make up my mind as to what I truly want..which is the problem right now....but if a size 14 frame comes up that just can not be past over...Neo has me hung up now with the single speed rides...was thinking old school with the canti brakes and ridgid forks steel frame...Simple fun ride...

steel... rigid... singlespeed... virtually bombproof with so little to go wrong!

Remember the REPACK!!! In 1978 Gary Fisher raced down Mt. Tamalpais in Charlie Kelly's Repack Race in 4 minutes and 22 seconds on a modified rigid steel Pre-War Schwinn Excelsior. To this day, that time stands, even with all the high tech stuff, no one can better that time. So much can be said for riding ability!

Someone asked what else I ride. I have this 1998 Schwinn Mesa GSX that I use as a trainer. I currently have it set up with street tires so I can ride the streets when it is too wet off road.
