The mountain biking thread!
Well I know there's a thread similar to this but rather than bump a year old thread I thought I would make a new one!

So, this thread is for mountain bikers anywhere to show pics of their bikes, where they have ridden, etc etc.

So on to me. I don't have a picture as of now but I currently ride a giant Yukon hard tail. For a $500 bike, I could not be more pleased. Been on many local trails including chino hills and whiting ranch. Also been riding on mammoth mountain. I'm looking to upgrade sometime in the next year or two to a giant trance x3.

Post up your bikes!!

Up highway 74- cahuilla/anza. Its a lot of fun. About 4 miles uphill, not fire line, more like single track. then 6 miles down and around. I think theres about 1 mile fireline downhill and the rest is single track. Some big rock climbs that I have to push it up sometimes, some river jumps, or theres bridges that you take through. A lot of fun!

I have an older Trek that hasn't been used in a while.

I ride a 2010 specialized rockhopper. I'll get a pic up at some point. Maybe my truck and my bike together?

I love the faith 1. If all I did was downhill that's what I'd get but I'm looking at a trance.
