    Post 'em... I don't care if there's a 5 year old 600 page thread on the subject already. It's 2017. I've got two bikes, both BMX. I will post them soon when I can get you all some sweet pix with my iphone. I'd like to one day get into downhill mt. biking but my propensity to steer myself from mediocrity puts the bike I'd want in the 5-8k dollar price range. I won't buy something that's "ok" to get by for now until I can get something better.

    If you don't want to post your bike, lets hear some of your cycling stories, I know there's a lot of people on this site that bike.

    Ah! Very nice, I'm jealous. Those look to be the exact kind of bikes I want to get into. It's cool that you're using platform pedals so you're not "strapped in" when you wreck like you get to experience with clipless pedals. Riding BMX for such a long time has taught me how and when to bail to minimize getting hurt by mistakes.

    Very nice: plus sized tyres, dropper post, looks like about 140mm travel. Very fun bike that one. First things first, get some new pedals!!

    Reckon you'd have some nice trails out that way.

    I wouldn't mind clipping in but my left knee just doesn't like it for some reason.

    Yeah, all this is new to me. Used to race BMX as a kid, but my boy was just up here with his bikes and it just looked so fun. All the ski mountains run trails and lifts in the summer for bikes. About to get my season pass and will have all winter to read up and see what else might help make this more fun, but already got a couple expensive hobbies so not sure how much more I plan to put into this one.

    Side note, is I got this for 50% off on an end of season clearance. Wasn't really planning on it, but after a few calls, was told it was way too good to pass up and that I could probably pull most money back out after a season or so if it came down to it. Anyways, we'll see. I can use the exercise.
