I will have to get a pic of my bike this weekend. I really have to bring it to my new apt. I used to go out riding at least 2 times a week around 5 miles a trip. But since I moved to racine I haven't.

I just got a walmart dual suspension 26" but I put some side handles, new seat, and some other fun toys on there.

I really gotta get out riding before it starts getting cold.

I have a Trek 1000 Discovery Channel Edition. I really don't ride like I should, but I am working on riding more. I don't have any pictures specifically of mine, but here is what I got from google.

wheeee
k2 alturas 2.0. I am not sure that I like it - the more I ride it, the less comfortable I feel on it.

This is the most recent road bike I rode, recently sold it and the replacement I bought for it sucks so I'm trying to sell that one as well. This one is a Trek 1000, the one I bought to replace it ( stupidly ) is a Trek Pilot 1.0

^ Its pictured the way I bought it, I flipped the stem upgraded the seat and installed clipless pedals ofcourse. This is the one I have now, also has a new seat clipless Pedals and the stem flipped:

You ride on a trainer? I tried that so many times and couldn't force myself to do it. I gotta be outdoors.

I do not ride on a trainer unless there is a foot of snow on the ground, the picture is the way I bought it.

I've been ignoring this topic because I thought you were referring to motorcycles.

I have a cheapo mountain bike I bought from a local bike shop for a few hundred a few years ago. I ride it a ton during the summer when camping and stuff. I don't have it in huntington (school) but I wish I did...would make the huge walks across campus so much quicker (but the sidewalks are packed)....

but yeah, bikes, ftw. they're always fun. I'd love to see them make a comeback in popularity.

^^ You must be living in the wrong area. Bikes are VERY popular. There are hundreds of road-bikers riding past my work everyday from coming down the coast.

Yeah -- I do live in a very nonfriendly biker area. Curvy, narrow roads without shoulders/sidewalks ANYWHERE. mountains, coal trucks, etc...You just can't ride a bike on the roads here.

And in Huntington, bikes are gaining in popularity but there still aren't any bike lanes and the sidewalks are pretty packed around campus...

Its very rare to see a bike on a sidewalk in my area, and also illegal.

It's totally legal in Huntington...just very few people take advantage of them. Charleston is supposed to have passed some laws very recently to become "biker-friendly". I haven't been there in a few years, though. I'd like to see some more cities do the same...

EDIT: it actually just hit me that Huntington even has bicycle cops now in effort to cut back on fuel usage.

My road bike would beat me up on a sidewalk too, I dread the times when I need to ride a sidewalk over the road those cracks rattle your teeth loose.

Here's my ride. Haven't been on it in a while since I'm still recovering from two relatively consecutive arm/shoulder surgeries. I plan on getting back on it in the spring.

Justin, get some light gear and lets do a night ride on some trails in Madison.

Thinking about buying a 6 Series and ditching the Kona, anyone ridden one of these?

Im for it, mang.

Just need to figure out what proper lighting gear consists of. And, at this point, a tough trail will probably eat me up..

Dude, the ONLY light to have is a P7

1. Get a P7. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13060

2. Get batteries. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5790

3. Get a charger. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4151

4. Get a mount. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8274

Total cost is about $63. For that amount, you'll have brighter lights
than you can buy for up to $500 without getting into DIY.

That one would work too. I ordered the 8 mode, seemed it had the most positive reviews. If you want to read up on bike light tech, check out www.bikeforums.net LOTS of good info on there. Also a great site to find local trails.

When are you going to get an instant messenger, it would make talking at you soo much easier.
