    Any mountain bikers out there? I just got a new bike and I love trail riding, down hill and jumps. I got a Iron Horse Worrior4.0.

    It's been awhile since I have been out but when I do it's on a Marin Indian Fire Trail I lean towards single track and lots downhill stuff.

    I've been riding since summer of 2003 when I lived in Southern Cal.

    I got hooked on the DH trails in Big Bear, CA until they shut them down in 2005. Now I just focus on XC to keep my cardio up.

    My old bike was a 2004 Santa Cruz VP-Free and sold it when the DH trails closed. Now I ride a Kona Kikapu here in Tempe, AZ. But right now it's f*****g hot to ride and don't really wake up in time to ride in the morning, so I'll just wait until this fall.

    Happy trails!

    08 Trek Fuel EX8 in San Diego. Love it! Another hot day today! That's why we met up at 6am and started riding by 7:30am. Dedication? You bet. Plus I need to get the most out of my bike since Im financing the darn thing.

    I ride single track and downhill on a Mountain Cycle Sin I built last year.

    I need to better my downhill skills though. Damn near destroyed myself Saturday. Tried a trail that was too much for me and landed on my head hard. My neck's still sore.
