    I had a bmx also before, but i replace it into a mountain bike, because some of my friends encourages me for a long ride, and it's hard to use the bmx for a long ride.

    I have an old GT triple triangle steel mountain bike, and a Trek 29 plus, and a Fat bike.

    The bike that I'm currently using is called Voodoo Canzo Mountain Bike. I got it for a really, really good price when one of the nearby bike shops has a sale and I fell in love with it. I'm really surprised by how good it is.

    One time I fell when I was riding downhill but the bike hardly got damaged at all... I thought that it would at least break something but nope. Really nice quality.

    I still have my old GT Silver Wing BMX bike and she's still shiny. But I really can't use it to roam around the city anymore haha I get a lot of stares from people. I now have several mountain bikes a very old huffy, a gt and my fave a newly assembled GTS. IMG_20180322_182042.jpg IMG_20180322_182016.jpg

    I recently sold my 5 year old GT MTB for some extra spending money for the Holy Week. I had a good times riding it. I just sold it the other day for $275, wish I sold it at a higher price.

    Here's my new GTS and I'm having a great deal of fun with it. It's more comfortable for me and I've modified it to my body so its perfect for my built. IMG_20180325_231434_200.jpg

    I got a new one, actually I just bought it today from a Friend who needs money and he was lucky that I still haven't spend the money that came from the sale of my old GT which I sold recently for $275 now I bought another GT Chucker 3.0 in very good condition for only $200. I'm happy because I was able to get a better bike than my old GT plus I got a profit of $75. IMG_20180411_171959.jpg IMG_20180411_172039.jpg IMG_20180411_172023.jpg

    You definitely don't see too many adults on BMXs, so I'd certainly agree that they're far more popular among younger people. At 25 years old, I'm not exactly a youngster myself anymore. That being said, I'm still a fan of BMX bikes because they were very popular while I was growing up in the 90's. My parents never bought me one, but now that I have my own income I decided to pick one up just to fulfill that childhood desire.

    I take it for a spin every now and again, but overall I prefer my mountain bike as it is a more comfortable riding experience. My BMX is for attempting tricks that ultimately result in both a bruised tailbone and ego.

    The mountain bike trails I ride are fire roads in the local mtns so nothing technical. But I could never make it up on a BMX. The roads are steep, 10-20% max grades for some good long sections so I need gears.

    If I ever put mountain biking before road biking,

    My mountain bike is the only bike I can speak of although it is not really branded since I bought it in a cheap store. I don't invest much in bikes because it is only a hobby for me. And I don't believe in buying expensive bikes unless I would be serious in my riding. For my regular use of the bike, I only ride about once or twice a week because my work schedule has been hectic for the past 10 years or so. I only could bike often when I was younger, not because I was stronger but because I had more time to spare.
