And here's a better pic. And if you wonder its a nishiki cascade, great bike for almost no money at all (USD 600)

I'm 23, but have no real intention of growing up, does that count? :p I mainly ride XC and compete in MTB orienteering.. and thinking of racing XC next year as well. I also enjoy riding a road bike for high-mileage rides and quick commuting in the summer weather.

Two Cannondales for me, a hardtail MTB and a road bike. I don't have a digital camera though, so no pics. :(

I am a 24 year old rider origianally from Denver, Co but i am stationed in Hanau, Germany. Just started riding seriosly. Used to ride skateboards auntil i injured my knee in Iraq. I just bought an HM fsl. I don't know much about bikes right now but I am pretty happy with this one. There are loads of bike trails here in Germany for me to test it out though. The bike has Deore lx components, Ritchie components, x fusion back shock and axel manitou front shocks. I think that all of this stuff is pretty wild but i dont know. Is this a good bike? replies would be appreciated. Thanx Brian.

I'm working on XC at the moment :D ACTUALLY, I am working on jumping now as well. Logs, garbage, etc. Getting air off hills etc. What a free ride :D I love the feeling of not touching the ground with both wheels.

Thanks to all who have made this post a blast! You all rock! Happy Ridin' !

It looks as though HM is a German-local brand. Is this your bike?

Im 16 and i just started mtb riding a month ago. I own a Giant Rincon '04 but i have upgraded it to a ritchey clipless with a rear panaracer fire XC pro tire. I also have a pair of 1.0 Ritchey Slick tires for road riding. Now i am waiting for a change to buy a Magnesium frame, with a weight of about 2.8 to replace my Rincon frame.

I'm 14, just got into the sport recently and bought a Diamondback Coil Ex as my first bike with my own money. Already in love with the sport and want to upgrade to a 05 Specialized Bighit FSR as soon as I get enough money.
