I'm curious how many bicyclist we have in the forum, maybe share a picture or biking story. I was also wanting to share my collection. 
 
I got around to cleaning out my garage today and cleaned up my bikes, here is a picture of them.

Picked this up on a deal for $775. My newest bike, so far i'm loving this thing! Can't wait to get this thing on some trails with more hills...

 
This is my fastest, 2015 Scott Metrix 20 - Picked it up for $400 if I remember correctly. It's pretty light and top gear is plenty. That bike seat was the best one I could find to take a decent amount of the bump impact, had to go with something cloth, that gel/plastic material was not much help. Biggest problem I have with this bike is... inner tubes... they seem to pop a lot with these 700C tires. I'm thinking it's my weight... I was around 260LB before buying the GT so I am trying to work off the weight so I can get back on this one. The SORA drive-set is very smooth. 
 


Got this 2011 TREK Fuel EX5 from a guy on craigslist. He told me it was $1700 at the shop, I bought it from him for $550. I had to replace the brakes, I really wanted to keep the coloring scheme so I ended up going with Shimano Alivio/Altus level brakes, they are not that great... but they work for now. I just put that seat on it because it looked fun. This is a really comfortable bike... The brakes were a nightmare though, I took this bike on a 50 mile ride... about 22 miles in, the brakes kept rubbing the rotor causing it to make this awful noise and also create resistance for rest of the ride. The only way to make it stop for about 60 seconds was to pump the brakes hard... It was pretty agonizing on the way home, I ate a whole pizza that night and bought those replacement brakes lol
 
I'm no biking enthusiast... I honestly don't bike enough to claim that. But I do enjoy it and I know it's really good for my health... so i'm trying to build up to being one. Does anyone else here do longer distance runs? I'm curious what people pack with them, the tools you expect to use... food you can eat half way through the ride to give your body some carbs.

    I like a lot of the features on the TREK. The hand grips look comfy. I have not been into bikes myself, still looks enjoyable. 
    In my opinion if your going 50 miles on a bike, I would say you are a enthusiast. Good exercise. 
    Do the fatter tires give a smoother ride?

    That was about 2 years ago. Working back up to it... only 2 rides so far this year and the longest one was around 12 miles so far. The 50 mile rides are a bit much and take around 4 hours to complete. I was also about 20LB lighter... im at 240LB now.

    Yeah, the fatter tires definitely help with the smoothness of the ride.

    I've had a few over the years my current 2 bikes I have are my 2019 Cannondale Bad Habit and a 2008 Specialized Stumpjumper. I kept the old Stumpjumper to have a backup bike or for a loaner for friends who want to try out the sport.

    2008 Specialized Stumpjumper

     
    LOL don't laugh too much but this was my first race. That was snapped by a randomly placed photographer that I wasn't expecting, hence the confused look on my face  I think this was in 2007

     
    The bike I was riding was my 2007 Felt Virtue

     
    This is a pic of me on the trails in NC on a Felt Redemption with the "equilink" suspension in 2007

     
    And the following year I got Felt Redemption Team issue bike. It's a 2008 model. 

     
    For me though this is the bike that I really started to take mountain biking seriously. I still have this frame and fork but was in the middle or overhauling it when for one reason or another I just never got around to finishing it so it's still to this day in my shed wating for it's moment in the sun to come again. I dunno, maybe I'll finally finish the restore and take her for a nostalgic ride one of these days.

    EDIT: Was asked to remove any details about the bike store by my friend who used to own it for personal reasons

    Nice bikes all around, even the oldest. Those look like some nice trails in those pics. I remember seeing a video you posted a while back where you and a buddy was running through a dirt trail with some nice jumps. haha I stay away from jumps, I've had too many instances in my life where I had the wind blown out of me from taking a object off of a jump with me.

    LOL well getting bumps, cuts and bruises in mountain biking is really a "mind over matter" thing.........If you don't mind, it doesn't matter 
     
    For real though you don't have to jump and get all aggressive on the trails, you can and should ride within your ability. It's only if you wanna start pushing those abilities that you get in trouble. I love jumping and riding aggressively, to me it's just fun. I've had my fair share of crashes and bumps and bruises. Hell I'm nursing a pretty gnarly scrape and bruise now LOL
     
    Did this a week after I got my new Cannondale

     
    That's my right arm right now. Just snapped a pic sitting in my bedroom. It's par for the course man. If you like to jump you're gonna end up with a few bumps and bruises. Never been afraid of falling down or taking a hit, I dunno I'm just not wired that way I guess lol. 
     
    As for the video, you must mean this one.

    That was for a video project my Uncle was doing for his videography class he was taking at the time. That's me and my brother in law, and in that I'm riding the Felt Redemption Team I posted above. My uncle hated hiking through the trails with his camera equipment and it was hotter than hell that day too LOL. It was a good time though.

    Now with newer tech, should be able to take nice videos on 4K @ 60hz.  Should leave us with nice details of that trail.

    I have a 2012 Specialized Roubaix Elite that I bought brand new in 2013, and haven’t taken the time to ride it over the last few years. I need to make it a point to ride it when I get home.

    Ouch... looks like that's gonna last a bit. Probably 2-3 weeks.
     
    I still expect the occasional wreck even when trying to keep it jump free. About 5 years ago I was flying down a twisty hill, going 20+ MPH... I was leaning into a huge turn... about 50% of the way in, I ran into a 15 foot patch of algae. Momentum and all.. it had been quite a while since I had felt that kind of pain.
     
    Yep, that's the video!

    Well I was probably going about the same speed when I did that to my arm. It's a combination of me not looking at the jump before hand and someone not clearing off debris they may have knocked into the trail. In my defense though, I ride these particular trails all the time. We're talking multiple times a week so I'm very familiar with this particular jump so I didn't think anything of it when I launched off the lip. There was a little log/rooty bulb in the middle of the landing about half way down that someone had to have accidentally knocked off one of the sides. When I saw it, I had already committed to the jump and it was too late. I landed right on it and it kicked my front tire hard to the left and I got bucked off to the right and crashed right into the tree. A friend following said I did a helicopter 180 before I hit the ground. He thought for sure I had broken something, my arm or my shoulder or both he said from how hard I hit it. Though somehow, someway I broke nothing, I sat there for a min, shook it off and got back on my bike and finished the ride. It ended up just being scrapes and a gnarly bruise. 
     
    Oh and you think it looks bad there? He's the same arm about 3 days after I took the fall.

    LOL, it "settled in nice". Sounds like you got lucky. Good. Probably didn't hurt the bike.

    Yeah, just gotta keep up on the water intake and snacking on foods that are healthy for ya to speed it up. Whatever amount of water you are drinking is never enough unless your able to consume like 3 gallons of water a day, then i'd tell you to chill out man. 🤣 But really dude... that looks like a hard hit that could have done some deep damage. I would keep an eye on the purple spot at the lowest part of it...

    It's already almost gone. The bruising is all but vanished and just some scars now from the scrapes. I've conditioned my body to heal quickly by repeatedly doing foolish things to it Yeah it definitely could have been way worse for sure. 
     
    EDIT just snapped another pic, so the first pic was 4 days ago and this is right now. I think it's gonna be fine, it's healing up nicely

    Like I said, conditioned from repeatedly doing foolish things  I dunno, I've always healed on the quicker side even from broken bones. I guess I'm just lucky my body can keep up with the abuse I'm prone to keep giving it lol

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Very nice! I never actually owned a Giant bike. I have demo'd a Giant Reign a few years ago and really enjoyed it however.

    I don't doubt it, I enjoyed the ride on the Reign during my demo with it. No real reason I would be opposed to owning one, just never really got around to it I guess. Also the fact that the nearest bike shop that that I know of that carries Giant is over an hour drive away from my house.

    I need to get my finger out and either fix or get a new rear wheel for the pitch pro, It is buckled and has 2 broken spokes that need to be replace. Its getting harder and more expensive to find a good 26" rear wheel now a days
