Well i was just wondering if anybody on here has a bicycle, street/mountain..One of my roommates has started to get really interested in it, and bought a Trek Mountain Bike a few weeks ago..Well i have always owned a bike, but never been serious enough to get into it much..HOWEVER, i started thinking about it and really want to get into some mountain biking for a few reasons..Give me something to do outdoors, good workout, and some places have great scenery..Plus i always loved taking my BMW bike offroad when i was younger, now i just have a hybrid but i need something more intense

ANYWAYS haha..if anybody has a bike, what do they own? any pictures also?

I have been looking at getting either a Specialized Rockhopper, Gary Fisher, or Trek...Not sure..all depends on condition..And if i get into it enough i will eventually get a rack for it..Found a used set by Thule for pretty cheap..but i will only get a rack if i start doing this lots

Should start to gain some knowledge this summer because i applied for a job at a local bike shop..They said they needed some people to build the bikes, so that would be really cool...About 3 miles from my house, discounts, and lots of info

I ride a Trek 4500. I like it a lot. I do mostly city riding on it, but I'm not afraid to get it dirty either. I already upgraded the rear sprocket set to the wide ratio, but I can still only get it up to about 32mph on flat ground, 45mph with a decent hill. It would be nice if had a bit taller gears to keep up with traffic.

Why is your bike on the roof? Ha. I ride a road bike, but I also have my mountain bike that I bought a few years ago, used and it has served me well when things arent in perfect condition for my road bike.

Here's my baby... great for those long 5 hour+ epic rides. It's maintained as well as my CG5, though I do need to get back on the saddle soon, it's been sitting for 6 months.
