..and how do you like it? I just got a new Trek 6500 and plan to use it for getting back into trails and canal levees where other vehicles can't go. Should be able to expand my hunting opprtunities with improved access. So far, I really like the bike and the ride. What about you?

Trek 8000 Love it. I haven't ridden enough to get completely used to the clipless pedals which I love when it comes to pedaling. But I forget I'm riding clipless when the SHTF and revert to the clip pedal bailout procedure (pull up and back vs. twist out) which of course leaves my feet securely locked in... Then I tip over. Ouch! Training is what is lacking. It's no fault of the pedals. I used to ride 80-100 miles a week, now with kids, I get maybe 80 miles a year.

Trek 6700, great bike. I stopped riding last year after I kept on wiping out with my cool new ATAC pedals and AXO shoes. Now I just ride around the neighborhood with the kids.

I ride a Ted Wojick Custom made MTB. I have had it for 6 years and never a problem! I rode a lot in the past but now I use it to access a shooting range, instead of drving my truck out and walking in I MTB the whole way in! Its funny when people see my AR come out of a black sack strapped to my back after I get off my Bike! But I like the idea of exercising more than just my trigger finger.

I've got an REI aluminum framed MTB. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. There aren't many "mountains" to ride here in North Texas, but I used the be hell on wheels back in Silverado Canyon in Kali.

Cannondale 500 (IIRC the number) that I've worn out almost two sets of tires with. Wife has a Cannondale 400 with mixte frame. Daughter has eyes on Mom's. Sorry, Campy! Noah

GT I-drive Race. Sweet bike! Full suspension and very light. Very nice cross country full suspension bike!

Specialized FSR Extreme. Been riding this bike for 3 years now - love it! It is the first "dual boinger" I've owned, I'll never go back to a hard-tail.

Gary Fisher "Paragon" that was given to me by the man himself about five years ago. and colleting dust, a Nishiki "Ariel" I bought back in about '90

Wow, mine is old, a TREK 950. You guys must have major bicycle bucks! cerberus, I use my bike for hunting, too. Still looking for a good trailer for my treestands, but I use ATV gun racks on the handlebars, as long as I'm on closed roads, or really wide, good trails! I'm more of a low-speed, high-drag kind of guy, though!

Gary Fisher Mt. Tam It has a great stable ride due to the Genesis frame geometry. Does not feel twitchy at all when compared to my Santa Cruz Heckler when speeding downhill. [img]http://forum.fuckedcompany.com/ubb/banana.gif[/img]

Cannondale Mountain Tandem. Double the fun on the trails! My wife and I take on road and off road. I have a 10 year old Specialized Stump Jumper (steel frame) as my single. I am on the second front shock, but I think the frame will last for ever.

Klien "Pulse Race" hardtail The only thing stock form the factory is the frame. Probably have 2grand invested in it (paid about $1000.00 new back around 96 I think). You guys know how expensive a good set of rims are. Real sprocket XTR all around Kore Mavic wheels $$$ Shimano clipless

I bought a Trek "police" model back a few years ago. I upgraded the front suspension to rock shox judy xc's and all the brakes and shifters to deore XT components. After it was all said and done I ended up spending about $1,200.

A 1993/94 Cannondale Killer V-900. I bought it used for $400 last April and I love it. It's my first "high quality" bike and when I first started riding it I was honestly surprised how lightweight and quick it was. All I need to do is upgrade the brakes (which tend to slip) and the saddle.

oh man! the tour de france is running and you guyz are talking about fat tired bikes! lol! worse yet, i see those curse words...shitmano...cannonwhale...my ears!!! well, no dirt bikes here. but, i could tell you guys about the sprint at the end of a 30 mile road race. we wound it up from about a kilometer out and really started digging for horsepower with 3-400 mters to go! suddenley, the 30mph cat IV-like crash starts to dump guys all over the asphalt! i was forced to take quick, evasive action and involuntarily plotted an escape by riding off the left side of the road. i dodged thru a break in the spectators lining the finish stretch and found myself still sprinting BEHIND THE CROWD while riding thru some folks' front yards!!! yup...i kept the bike up and crossed the finish line...sorta. for leaving the course, i didn't get a position, but what the hell?!?! yr obdnt roadie, CAMPYbob

I've got an Independent Fabrications Deluxe and Planet cross, both built up with full XTR, a trek 8500 disc, and a Trek 5200. I ride quite a bit. Kevin.

4 or 5 year old GT "Rebound" I like it for not knowing squat about MBs. I wanted a new MB but not the usual Kmart Blue Light special so I went and bought this for $550 and added $150 in acc. I REALLY want a softtail though. BrenLover

G'Man, nice bike. I looked at the Gary Fishers and they are nicley done and well spec'd. Different frame geometry than the Trek's, even though Trek owns Gary Fisher. Green-Canoe: How do you like riding with clips? I am still on platforms, the only mod to this new bike (so far) was to strip off the toe clips (hated them) and add a computer (love it). I kind of like getting on & off the platforms quickly if I gotta put my foot down or push off something. How well does that work with clips?

2000 Specialized Rockhopper FSR. Upgraded fork to 01 Manitou X-vert Super, Mavis Crosslink Disc wheelset and Avid disc brakes. It has 105 MM travel up front and 112MM on the rear. Cool ride but heavy at approx 30 lbs. I make it a point to only race people on downhill sections!

Trek 970 circa 1993.

I've got an older Cannondale I bought back in '95. No suspension just big fat aluminum tubes.

A 2000 Giant MCM SE-1 carbon fiber hardtail w/ Rock Shox SID XC fork. About 23lbs. Also, a 2002 Specialized S-Works FSR dual suspension cross country bike as spec'd by Specialized. Upgraded to XT crankset. Really light bike! I've got two road bikes. A new Serotta Legend Ti with Campagnolo Chorus and an older Masi Team 3V with Ultegra 600. Plus, a Gary Fisher SuperCaliber of early 90's vintage, kind of a dinosaur that needs a new home.

'99 GT I-Drive XCR4000 full suspension. Only things left stock are the frame and Avid brakes. Mavic wheelset, Judy Race fork, Race Face carbon fiber crankset, Easton carbon fiber bar and seatpost, and XT group. Got about 500 miles on it (haven't really been riding in about a year and a half). Damn, I need to go pull it out and ride!
