Is it possible to get massive legs like the riders of road bike have? I have a mountain bike, and I was wondering if this was possible, if it is, how long would I have to ride per day in order for it to happen. I ride like 2-3 hrs per day, starting in mid to late April and ride until the snow comes. Any help would be appreciated.:beer:

Your biggest obstacal will be genetics. You should also be doing some work in the gym. With out the genetics, cycling alone will not work.

Just to reiterate because I feel like it. DBD is dead on. Genetics play a huge role (check out the massive arnold and compare his legs to his old school competitors...he was a machine in the gym but still had twigs in comparrison to his upper body).
Best of luck :)

Push the biggest gears all the time! Genetics is critical, but pushing big gears will exhaust your muscles to failure, rest a day and do it again!
