Being stationed far far away from my bike I had to look at somthing else to keep my interest, I used to ride pedal bikes alot growing up so now i kind of got back into it. I was wondering if any other RR riders ride BMX, road, etc? bikes around. these are some pics of my Bianchi I picked up here in Japan for 1,200$:banger:

My family owns 2 bike shops, I run one of them. Grew up with bikes everywhere. Went to college and raced for my two collegiate teams. Still riding all the time. :thumbup:

I wish I had a road bike. I still have my mountain bakes. I used to race here in Ohio when I was younger. I have GT Timberline. it was made way back in '97 when GT still meant something.

I used to ride dirt on my BMX, it was a Gary Fisher pure bender (kick). Unfortunately it was stolen. I also ride a Specialized rock hopper on the mountain trails.

I ride a Felt F35 3-4 days a week on the road and my trusty Trek on the trails a few times a month. I do mostly local races on both. Living at the base of the Blueridge Mountains in NC means we climb all the time. Some days I really miss those flat days in Florida. People often question safety when they talk to me about motorcycles, but I am probably safer on the RR than my road bike. On the RR, I can see people coming from behind, cars don't pass me in my own lane, I wear leather and a full face helmet vs styrofoam and lycra, I have a bright tail and head lights, and I never have to worry about not being able to outrun somebody should I need to.
