Default Biking

Anyone else got a bike they either ride for fun or to commute to work? If you do go ahead and post up pics so I know I'm not all alone!

I've got a Trek 3900. Not the best bike for commuting to work, but it'll do me good here, I just added some road tires on it so it'll be a bit easier to get around the base. Once I get back to the states the real tires go back on and I'll probably get a decent road bike.

I used to be into biking. But that was 15+ years ago. I still got my trek mountain bike. Bought it in hawaii. Its hanging in the garage. I dust it off clean it up every year or so. Dunno why i hang onto it.

Eh, starting somewhere is important. I bet Jon might be willing to part with his Trek.

Picked up a Raleigh Talus 2.0 this summer.Only put just under 100 miles on it riding the dirt roads around my house and ~40 more up on some mountain trails.I hope to do many times that this next summer but work tends to get in the way :/
