Do you have MTB? Post pics :)

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Of course, I had to find an excuse to post my new MTB picture. But really want to see what other roadies are using on the trail.

It's good for roadies to be MTB'd. Very helpful with climbing and descending skills!

It helps even more to have climbs and descents nearby to work on those skills. I can get a lot more climbing in on the local roads than on the local trails, so I don't have an MTB anymore. This year I stripped it down and used the parts to build a hardtail for my son.

Nice looking bikes.

Do you still have to wear flannel shirts and get high to ride one? Or am I living in the past?

My 1995 Trek 8700. The carbon/aluminum composite frame gets a lot of comments. It's light, handles great, and is a ton of fun for a change up from the road bikes.

Rigid FTW! This is actually my childhood bike, but it works just as well for the trails I do.



13 inch frame, btw. I'm 5'8''

The Enduro has gone through some major changes since that pic above. I9 wheelset, Saint Brakes, and a conversion to full X-0 2x9... My baby...
