I wanna see your rides! Tell me what you ride and add a pic if you have one.

Edit: I guess I forgot to say what I ride. I ride an 06 Kona Stuff. It's a dirt jumper. I should have a picture pretty soon. I ride pretty much whatever I can, XC(not very long or fast though), dirt jump, street, freeride. Damn the praries! No mountains!
And I'm sorry if I didn't put your brand of bike, there are too many to list. I just put the ones that came to mind.

Very old and heavy old-school Schwin GT BMX bike.

The seat got messed up, so I took one from a mountain bike and shoved it in there. Had to modify it so now the pole that is perpendicular(sic) to seat looks like an exhaust pipe in the rear...

Neverrtheless, it works.

2002 Brodie Energy.

It's light as all get out, and a simple bike. No hydraulic disc brakes or gas dampened shocks for me, no sir.

(Not that I don't want fancy fittings, but my bike is a mode of transport, not a TIE fighter wannabe)

I'm not a big biker but I do have the OLD SCHOOL Schwin stingray!

I went mountain biking (biking down a ski mountain) last weekend and it was awesome. REALLY dangerous but awesome.

I ride a dirt bmx bike. A white redline proline pro. I really only ride it around on the streets instead of the dirt but it gets me around just fine.

Bridgestone MB-4. Circa 1992. No suspension. 21 lb. mountain bike. Simplicity at it's finest. What I used to ride to town, or trail ride to smell the flowers.

Specialized Rockhopper Pro. 1994. Manitou 3 front fork. Old school, still reliable. For keeping up with the young punks with "doohickey" bikes.

Mongoose "Y" frame dual-suspension. Left here by a friend. Spinergy Rev-X "Roks" wheels, probably cost more than the bike itself. Copied after "Pacific Blue" TV series bike. Sitting in my storage room.

Royce-Union 18 speed cruiser. Wife's bike. So cushy you couldn't feel a pothole if it hit you head-on.

Which reminds me. I should take up riding again. I already resumed weight training.

Cannondale R500 road bike, from around 1992 that I don't get to ride nearly enough anymore. I like aluminum frames...light, and stiff as all get out. What I like about the model I have is that the gearing isn't full-out racing; high end is a 52-13, but it also has a granny gear on the front, so I can get down to a 32-23 (something like that)...really nice when you're beat after a long ride and come up to a long hill. I used to ride this one to draft off cars through town.

My wife has a low end Cannondale mountain bike that I ride more than she does. It's nice for just cruising around town.

Trek 3700, solid frame mountain bike. Nice and light aluminum frame. I wish I could use it for more than just street riding, but there's really nowhere to go in Illinois...

I was hoping someone would include the Trek group. I ride a Gary Fisher Sugar 4+. It's an adjustable full suspension MTB. Fairly awesome (a graduation present from my uncle).

I've got a hard-tail Boulder SE from Giant. I paid $250 for it (my own money, thank you very much). I've taken it out 10+ times on a pretty challenging MTB course at a nearby course. It's over 10 miles long, so riding the length can really take the wind out of you. Very good bike.


EDIT: Who's got the Specialized? I envy you.
