Foo types of riders

Seems like a lot of Foo denizens are roadies.

So, what do you ride? 'Bent, folders, CX, all of the above?

Me, I'm a knuckle dragger...like hardtails, single track...but in reality, most of my miles are commuting miles.

MTB, but I've been known to dabble in it all.

Almost completely utilitarian cycling for me, though I usually try to get in one or two "fun" rides on the weekend (they're actually all fun, though )

I'm a roadie. I ride a Trek 1500. And due to my fiscal status, a commuter bike is going to be a while....

Roadie.
Then Cyclocross/Commuter.
Then Fixie.
Then Light Road Tourer.
Then SS Cyclocross.

But i picked up my first road bike to do a triathlon. So i guess i started out as a tri-geek. But right now i'm going to concentrate on cyclocross over winter.

I'm hoping to add MTB to my repertoire next year.

It's been an odd season where I have really spent more time doing the utilitarian / commuter / fixed gear thing and less of the road riding and mountain biking thing...

I am going to put in some back to back metrics this weekend and dust off the mountain bike since the fall riding here is so incredibly excellent.

Road, mountain, commuting, "fun rides", teaching kids how to mountain bike.... I wish I got out to the track more, it is so much fun, but there is never enough time for it all...

You get three guesses.
