Arrow Anyone here bike?

Talking about bicycles.. not the motorized variety. What kind of bike do you own? Mountain bike, hybrid etc.. also what kind of accessories do you have on your bike?

Would appreciate pics for reference.

^It's not the exact same bike and I don't know the exact model name for it, but I own a Schwinn mountain bike like this which I bought 4 years ago.

It was a birthday gift from my aunt. On that day I didn't ask questions...I still wouldn't

Sorry I said I bought it, I have another bike which I genuinely bought, it's just that I like the mountain bike better.

I got a Specialized Rock Hopper, but looking for a Hybrid. Mountain is too heavy when I want to commute or park trails. Son and I looking at some Cannondales.

Default Re: Anyone here bike?

I'm gonna try to do this from memory:

29er, 17.5 inch frame, was a Specialized Rockhopper M4 SL but:

Thompson 0 degree rise stem & Thompson Seat Post
Custom cut leather Brooks Saddle (was a b17)
Avid Juicy 3 Brakes w/G3 Rotors front/back
IIRC Shimano Saint short cage rear derailler w/Saint shifter
Some sort of lightweight expensive rear casette that I forgot details on
Some sort of lightweight drilled titanium chain that I forgot details on
100mm Manitou Tower Pro Air Fork I think, forgot specifics about nomenclature
Custom 1x9 drivetrain, with Truvativ Hussevelt external bottom bracket I think I run 26 teeth up front
Speedplay Frog Chromoly clipless pedals
Some sort of lockable XC MTB grips
Some sort of Stans Tubeless Brand Rims that I forgot details on
Specialized Captain 2.2 tubeless on the back 30 PSI for speed 25 for fun
Specialized Ground Control 2.3 tubeless up front 30PSI for speed 25 for fun

What do you mean? Mountain biking is free once you've got a bike? That's why I like it so much, I spend way less money than people who go to baseball games, golf outings and amusement parks all summer, and I get in better shape and (IMO) have more fun doing it. The bike and the gear were an investment that paid for themselves, trails are free, at least where I live

I live in Toronto, I have to travel to Vancouver to ride on actual bumpy mountain trails. I don't want to do flips or pull off stunts, I just don't want trails that are 95% flat.

Love biking, go to Miami Critical mass every month and mountain bike trails are the best.

I have this 29'er, Jamis Exile Sport 2013


29ers are the shite if you do a lot of city riding too (like I mostly do), faster than normal mountain bikes, I changed the stock seat since it was so uncomfortable though

I ride it to work when I'm on day shifts. I go on a 22-mile bike trail sometimes, haven't really had much time this summer, however.
