Probably quite a few of us. I ride a couple of hours on Saturday or Sunday when the weather's good. It's nice that I live close to several bike trails. Most of my time is on a mountain bike. Having said that, I suck at riding. My gf will beat me every time. I do better than her at running. I also rode a road bike back and forth to work for a couple of years in SoCal.

My mountain bike looks kinda like:

Nice ride I ride a trek Cronus with red groupo. But have never been on an Italian bike. My old bike was a Cannondale six-thirteen with shimano groupo, so I guess I'm and american made guy.

denzel....sweet! I used to ride with Dave Cullinan quite a bit in the early 90's, before & after his surgery....that guy was amazing on any kind of bike!

My first BMX bike was the old aluminum square chainstay RedLine with the V bars & that was the first ever 3 piece crank I had on that bike....I'm an old farrt

Pedaling sucks... I have a love/hate relationship with my roadbike... Italian with Japanese gruppo, but I do prefer Italian gruppo...

I picked this one up earlier this summer. I don't get around to riding much. I got hoping that is I spent some money on it I would use it. I have around 100 miles on it. I just ride the shoulder of the road on some of the less traveled roads. We have to much glass and stickers out here to go with a real road bike. Trek Mamba

Just got into mtb this year. I have a 97 rocky mountain blizzard that's almost all original. It's a great cross country bike but I ride too hard for it really. I need a stronger wheelset.
