How Old is the Oldest MTB You Still Ride?

When it comes to mountain bikes and financial investments, buy and hold can be a solid strategy.

With constantly improving tech, mountain bikes don’t exactly age like fine wine. Still, it’s hard not to grow attached to your mountain bike. We spend hours customizing our builds to get exactly the fit, look, and performance we want, so why wouldn’t we hold onto our bikes for as long as possible?

For this survey we’re interested in knowing how old your oldest rideable — and ridden — mountain bike is.
