Trusty steeds - what do you ride?

Recommended Posts

some repco thing I got for $50 in a subway promotion.  There's a reason why I never get out on my mtb :)

My wifes XS Giant Talon I bought her for her birthday from LBS ($700).  She had an off-putting SheRides experience (too technical, fell off 5 times, busted little finger) so really only does the road bike now - she'd probs do MTB on dirt roads, but not single track.  It's too small for me, so I have the seatpost right up beyond the minimum insert :huh: and bunged a set of $30 MTB cleats on my old tri shoes. May get my own MTB soon, or get a new longer seatpost for hers.

Trek super fly FS 7 with a recent 1x12 eagle GX upgrade. It goes ok when I'm fit. I change tyres to suit conditions/ terrain a lot.

12 Year Old Fuel Ex - pre 29'er days.  Love teh old girl, but prefer riding my wifes Specialized.

Nice RS, I'll be up to borrow that Superfly to take to NZ next month for a week of sweet sweet South Island MTB trails with some mates. Promise I'll look after it better than I do mine. :lol:

Was on 2x10 XT

Seems fine so far. I miss jumping up and down the chain ring when required. I just have to get used to this new way of riding.

Have since switched out the saddle for my Adamo, put the stem down lowest and switched the mino link for the slacker position
