I wasnt expecting so many older cats on this thread, but then again with some of these bikes being 2-3k plus, I guess that makes since... us younger guys are to busy paying bills for that nonsense lol

Because I'm old I can't afford those kind of bikes. Blahahaha. My most expensive bike is a 2002 MTB which cost me $1K, back then. My other 3 bikes come in just under $600.00 each...Ummm, before upgrades, Blahahaha.

Where do You park your bikes at night ?

I live in New York, so basically a 1 bedroom shoe box. Mine are all hanging from the ceiling of my living room. I should post a pic of the quiver.

Just ordered a Sunringle 12 to 10mm rear axle to use with my Spank Spike rear hub. Anyone have any experiences on these?

EDIT: I'm 36, 1½ year old son and a wife.

35 and trying to keep the dream alive. I love DJ but my body not so much, feel like I'm falling apart at the seams!

34 and I'm beginning to feel it. have a tonne of fun on the jumps but one good crash and your sidelined for a while. I have recently picked up Yoga and some Calisthenics in an attempt to be able to take some extra bumps and bruises without turning into an old man lol.

Same here man, well i am 46, 6 foot tall and weigh a little over 100kg (16 stone). Have just got something cheap for now until (hopefully) lose some weight and gain some knowledge so can get something a bit better/more suited for my needs.

If it makes everyone feel better, my brother is 56, loved his road bikes for years, then switched to mountain biking and cyclo-cross. He's started doing some laps on a pump track to warm up before he goes training and he's getting the bug. We live over 100 miles apart but he's started badgering me to come visit him and bring my jump bike so he can have a go, lol.
