    Currently rolling a POS for commutes but a http://whyte.bike/gb/models/trail/tr...-5-650b/901-2/ for the good stuff!!

    Bike at stock for now though, if I can get enough trails / natural MTB routes, I fancy a few upgrades starting with a Rockshox Stealth Dropper

    scaryjim - Looks the perfect vehicle for transporting my stash of Hendricks Gin

    g8ina - I had to google fibromyalgia as never heard of it. Sounds nasty, but I'm amazed that NHS lists two of the potential causes as things that are associated with causing depression, alongside physical causes.

    kalniel - Tempted by a cx bike, that same model would be my choice from the research I've done so far.

    JonnyManc - Whyte are so highly rated. A dropper would be an awesome upgrade, its next on my list but both my bikes are of a seat post size that's hard to source a dropper for.

    r_j_k_p - That's a beaut.

    I just replaced the coil shock with a Fox Float X CTD Factory. Bike feels so much easier on the flat trails near my house now, can't wait to see how it feels when pointed downhill. Till recently it had coil forks also, so a lot of weight dropped in the last few weeks.

    You can get a phenomenal amount of beer on it I reckon the total carrying load is around 150Kg when I hook up my trailer (yup, I have a bike trailer just in case I need to tow extra stuff: brilliant for running rubbish to the local tip!).

    I'll try to get some pics up, but might give it a quick clean first; Manchester's road are notoriously filthy and in winter they cake bikes with a layer of vile grease and muck

    Re: What does everyone ride? (Pedal powered)

    Ooh a bike porn thread:



    Is my roadie... Giant Defy Advanced with deep carbon rim wheels (RS80 C50s) - now has an Ultegra Triple and a X-lab Carbon aerowing fitted.



    Is my mountain bike.... Specialized Rockhopper Pro Evo (which I am completely unable to ride at anywhere near it's limits)

    I've got a Specialized Tricross Xpert in the garage which needs a rebuild as I attempted myself before realising (as one half of my new canti-brakes fell off mid ride) that I should stick to riding, rather than attempting to fix/service bikes.

    Hi, we do have a mountain bike here but we seldom used it. We only get it to take a tour around our village.
