Any mountain-bikers around?

Hey, any bikers out there?

Where do you ride? Do you prefer Freeride, X-country, Dual, touring or just 4 fun?

Show me your bikes!

I went to my dealer the other day and bought my new toy:


2006 Ghost AMR 7500

It's a small german brand, but so much fun to ride.

I passed my old beloved Trek-hardtail on to my girlfriend.

Im not that downhill-hardcore-biker. I prefer x-country and doing short tours through our beautiful country.

I'm still riding my year 2000 S-works X-country full suspension bike. I swapped the handlebar for a CF riser, and the bottom bracket and cranks for RACE FACE. I use Time ATAC pedals...mudproof! I love my bike, it climbs like a billygoat and descends like a motocross.....worth every penny!

Ahh, Specialized. Epic?

Quite pricey over here.

S-works = $ 4500 and more

Have not been riding as much as I would like, I'll try to post a pick of my Cannon Super V (hope it's not Booster's). I mostly do cross country, love singletrack trails!

It was an older model.. but loved it...

No replacement yet, probably this spring with another Cannondale...

All my money went to my turbo VW this year that I'm now selling

I have an old Gary Fisher Joshua Z that I still ride. I'm planning on upgrading the shocks, and pedals soon. I'm very happy with the XT components and the bike is still a blast to ride.

Love mountain biking. I do some freeride and x-country. Have a Klien Hardtail and a Specialized Enduro. I currently have the Klein set up for riding around town with slicks and the Specialized for Urban freeride stuff and trails.

It's not an Epic, just a S-works FS X-country....I paid 3300cdn in the year 2000.

Nice, I was thinking of putting slicks on my trek-hardtail too, but now I passed it on to my girlfriend, she was riding a real piece of sh***!

I am just a beginner....started the last couple of months. I only get a chance to get out there maybe every other weekend.

I have an Ellsworth Moment. I do not have a pic of my exact bike...but very similar to this. Mine has a different fork/front shock..I have the Marzocchi Desert Storm.



**wishes he could ride more regularly**

Awesome ride! Looks like it can deal with some heavy duty.

Biking can be as addictive as posting on this board. I should be riding more too!
