Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
Mountain Biking has never been so affordable. On the bike websites and forums we tend to concentrate on the high end bling, but walk into a decent bike shop and see how much you can get for your money from one of the big brands like Specialized, Trek or Giant The Giant Stance really blew me away for 2015 - £1000 for full suspension with Rockshox fork / shock and Shimano drivetrain and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.I test rode it too, and was very impressed with the ride quality, not just the value / price I don't think we've ever had it that good. Look how darn good components like Shimano SLX or even Deore are!

The Field of Dreams
"The term was originally used to refer to feelings of being "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy". The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century"

we'd always clean disc brakes after any method of cleaning, with bicycle disc brake cleaner

Video: My Girlfriend is a Mountain Biker
I get more of a rush now from road riding than mountain biking because I can get a more consistent, harder physical work out riding my road bike than my MTB. This rush is coming from pushing my body to its aerobic threshold or into the anerobic area. There is also nothing like descending at 45mph on a road bike! Since I got older (and decided to scale back the stunts) I'm no longer doing the extreme stunts of FR and DH, and that "rush" has gone from my MTB riding. My MTB riding is now riding fast XC singletrack going up, along and down the hills. Still really enjoy it, but its a different feeling to the road riding which is less technical and more about pushing physical limits.

Video: My Girlfriend is a Mountain Biker
My missus tried mountain biking - actually bought two bikes, never really enjoyed it. Since I started riding Road bikes (in addition to my mountain biking) she got a road bike and really enjoys the riding - even the hills! Sunday morning involves us going out for 100km of road riding and coffee shops. Her riding girlfriends had a similar experience and all found Road riding much more accessible.

it all looks "gay" to the outside world whether its a scooter, bmx, skateboard or mountain bike just "push bikes",no matter how obsessed some of us become about our bike riding, and the bikes....
