Cool man!

It's a great way to stay in shape and see some nature.

I am about to get a new full suspension bike and you are totally right, even with tons of test rides and researching there so many types out there.
Some even go up to $8K+ in price!

You guys have some sweet trails to ride. Here in FL there are very few and no nice DH rides. I'm using like a 1/10 of my bikes capacity.

$8K? thats for amateurs

Was at the Trek store yesterday getting a cruiser for my GF. They have a couple of $16K road bikes for sale. I was told they are "mid-range"
Friend of mine is a photog, there are 2 $15K bikes in his studio for a photoshoot right now.

http://www.factor001.com/ these go for $40K

You guys can build some with your local mtb association.

Here's a newly made trail.

I just got into mountain biking myself! This video is a good representation of what I can strive for! Looks like a great place to ride too.

hell no. I'm taking trains everywhere. It is still a pain in the ass because my downhill bike is so heavy, and combined with my other bags it is a nightmare

The problem in FL is that a jump run will only last a few hours. There is nothing but loose dirt/sand here. No hard packed clay/dirt. Sweet vid though!!

Heading up to Upper Michigan soon and taking my Enduro Evo with me. Can't wait to put it to good use!

Nice! I have a Marin Muirwoods 29er Hybrid. There's a extremely long trail I ride on in San Antonio. As well as a dirt paved, forest bike trail next to my family's house in Austin. I ride on it often. I often ride it at night with LED lights on my bike since it gets pretty hot during the day.

Blankets Creek is 5 minutes from my house, and I go there almost every day. I love that place!
