    Any mountain bikers in the house? DH, freeride, XC? Or even roadies? What's your ride?

    Mountain bikers should take their stuff outside, if they use it in the house they'll wreck up the place.

    yup, longtime xc'er here. I switched to road biking and commuting years ago, though, once a lot of the property I biked on got bought up. however I've now moved to a place where I have a small but hilly park 1/4 mile away. I took an awesome chunk out of my elbow on my first ride there ;) 

    I've got a santa cruz superlight mtb, trek 5200 road and 7300fx city bike.

    Yeah, guess it was pretty late.

    on topic: I used to like trail riding and such, but due to medical issues, I can't anymore :(

    I like single track and free riding. Anything that's dirt and doesn't look too extreme is what I look for. 2005 Norco Mountaineer. All stock.

    This. ^

    I just love to ride my bike, off road. Not really any places around here, to do that, unfortunately. Closest trails are an hour's drive away, and they're closed, thanks to the ridiculous amounts of rain we've gotten this year, combined with clay based soil.

    That said, I've never liked large wheeled bikes. I've got an old BMX race bike that I've repurposed for trail riding. Raised the seat up, put on a saddle pack with some tools and a patch kit, and put on the most aggressive knobby tires I could find. (The larger rear tire has caused some issues due to clearance and oddly placed brake lugs)
