Just interested in seeing what sort of distances people have clocked up on their trusty steeds over the years. I'm going to kick it off with a pathetic effort so the next person feels better about themselves:
2000 Klein Quantum Race (retired with crack) - 27000km (measured).

My trusty old commuter/touring mtb likely had more but didn't have an odo so I'm not counting it.

Cheers,I

Good idea, a pic of the ride would be great too.

I had my C40 for 9.5 years, and it wasnt new when i had it.
Approx 7000miles pa

Gives a grand total of 66500 miles.

Even accounting for a few miles less in a year, i will have done at least 50000 (s)miles on it :)
Plus whatever the original owner rode it for.
Its a bit like triggers brush- 3 new handles and 5 heads though with kit etc ;-)

will post pix in various guises later...

My 2008 Lynskey R320 is at about 28,000 and I still love it as much as the day I bought. 12.5 pounds of riding and racing fun.

I put over 50,000 miles on my Litespeed Vortex before I sold it.
