    What type of bike do you ride?

    I've had road racers, touring bikes, recumbents, and now, a MTB. What's the preferred Clyde-Ride?

    I have a cracked Trek 520 (tourer) and two MTBs.
    If anyone's in the market for a clyde MTB, I highly recommend the titus racer-x.
    Its light and fast yet insanely strong. 5 years of abuse.
    I don't think type matters as long as you don't stupidly sacrafice strength for weight.

    An almost vintage Cannondale R500 (2.8 frame) with several personal modifications.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    I have a Trek 7000 hybrid, and an 80s Shogun touring bike. I just got the shogun so it's my fave right now. Except, road riding is hard.

    I have an older Specialized Hard Rock GX mtb that I've been riding for somewhere around 10 years. All the folks at work ride roadies at lunch, so I picked up a road bike last week. It's a Specialized Roubaix Elite. I'll probably outfit the Hard Rock with a rack and penniers and use it when I need to haul stuff, but I'm having a real blast zipping around on the new roadie.

    I've barley even started my car this month, and it feels great.

    My favorite all-around bike is my '88 Trek 830 mtb, outfitted for pavement and long rides. It hauls me and my stuff like a truck. I have a Trek 520 that I thought I would ride more than I do. The 830 does everything the tour bike can do. Recently I bought a new Sequoia Elite - just for giggles-n-grins. Plenty of 'em. I also like my 3-speed alot. A bike for every mood, I guess.

    I've got an Electra 3-speed cruiser bike. The Rat Rod.

    But I'm looking for an old road frame to convert to fixed. Maybe an mtb would work better for what I want but definately a fixie... I'll know the bike when I find it; it looks like so much fun! I wanna ride backwards...

    Main bike: 2004 Giant OCR Touring; I am rebuilding the rear wheel with DT alpine III spokes, otherwise a great bike for a petite flower like me.
    Fair weather/lightweight bike: 1981 Takara Grand Touring; I break a rear spoke if I ride this bike 2 days in a row, so I saving up for a new rear wheel.

    90%+ of my riding is on my roadie. Pull out the MTB to ride with my boys, pull the trailer, etc.

    6" 240-something, see the signature for the bike...a steel roadie with wide tires and a brooks b17 saddle.
    Proudly wearing kit that doesn't match my frame color (or itself) since 2006.
