    As the title says, what type of riding do you enjoy doing and what bike do you use.

    I enjoy cross country riding mostly though do a little road/path/tarmac. I use a Mongoose Otero Elite (2008) as its my only bike. (Which I bought off Emlyn).

    I will admit the bike is in need of service currently with much reduced brakeforce.

    I've got a couple of bikes, an Orange patriot for downhilling (don't use it much as falling off hurts!) and a Jamis Durango sport hard tail for xc..

    Nice topic

    I ride a custom (of course) 2012 Onza pro



    Yes it is a funny place to keep it, but my place is cramped to say the least



    And yes i know it doesn't have a seat, i use the bike to make a decent workout entertaining.
    Great thing is i can chuck it on the back seats of the C and take it anywhere, i usually go for an urban/industrial course rather than on the rocks.

    soon to follow will be alloy stem, bars and forks to loose to weight and maybe drilled rims if i can find the ones i want

    If this is of help to anyone i have hydraulic brakes and parts for sale pm for info

    I don't do as much riding as I'd like but the 29 inch wheels are a dream very smooth and fast, I need to stop working and indulge in my hobbies a bit more I've got a kayak aswell. Ahhh well such as life

    I'll stick to my old skool 26 tempted to get a newer Marin with 650b's tho. Heard mixed reviews about 29ers and for me the wheels are just too big

    The 29er is great for racking up the miles down trails or on the road, doesn't have the chuckability of a 26 though. I'm still getting used to it. Overall its good though.

    Jdavis I like the 29er as you say they munch the miles up with ease and are faster and smoother, bit strange at first because you sit quite high lol. Mine was a halfrauds bargain 100 I think it was in a sale so I snapped it up its nice and light aswell

    I ride a Cube Sting 29er.....it's a lovely ride & replaced my much used Marin Rocksprings - i fancied a change & test rode a few bikes & loved the 29" ride...so smooth & effortless cross country & on big climbs...
    It has sus settings:
    Climb: lock out for climbs & tarmac cruising
    Cross country: trail riding, bridleways, byways etc.......(i use this setting 99% of the time)
    Descent: full on for down hilling etc.....to be honest - i don't go crazy as i'm over 40 & could do with out any broken bones etc....
    A Saturday morning ride for me is 25 miles, cross country on trails & byways.....i love it..!!

    ps....i can't seem to upload a photo on this page.......:-(
