I am curious to see who here rides a bike on a regular basis? If so what do you ride?

Myself, I ride a fixed gear conversion (1986 Peugeot). This is my new hobby. I spent 640 dollars on a new bike. :D

Oh,that bike. I really want to learn how to ride a motorcycle, and was hoping this was a thread for that kind of bike. Owell...

I ride BMX everyday. For about an hour to 2 hours depending on the weather.
I ride street though.

thats what i thought, too. i culd go for my motorcycle license in may, when i get my drivers license, but my parents wont let me. so i have to wait til im 18 to take the class :(

but i ride bike often. not BMX, but i ride my 18-speed bike on the country roads to get excercise when i dont want to run or lift weights

I ride a 2002 bianchi brava. I used to commute on it, but now have a job farther away. I was bummed about that. But, it's still a solid bike and gets me around.

I have a 84 Yamaha 550 sitting in my garage that I plan on making a project of mine this spring/summer. (Actually, it might be older)

There is also a 1100 (Same year) Suzuki sitting next to it that I'm too skinny and afraid of to ride. Starting off small lol.

I used to ride fixed gear. I haven't ridden in awhile though. Too many expensive hobbies so I had to drop a few.

Ops-checked my recently purchased Trek Trailer. my oldest son enjoyed the quick ride to the store. its a little wide for my taste but works great. only felt the extra weight when we went up the hill to our house. thats all i have to say about the trailer. i DO need a new seat on my bike my @$$ hurts.

How did this thread go from motorcycles to bicycles?

from what i see, this is a pedal pusher thread. By the way, riding tomorrow unless the wind kicks back up.

Excuse me for being ignorant. Peugeot is a car manufacturer so I figured they got their hands in the motorcycle business a while ago. Not a street bike.

Yay me!!!

Well, i made a second attempt at getting to the M. My first attempt saw me getting sick half way up the west side of the hill. My second attempt i would find myself faced against the odds again. About three quarters the way up my rear tire blew out due to a rocky switchback and me breaking the bead off my tubeless tire. My group said to just walk back down to my car but i was detemind to make it to the M. I picked my bike up and hiked the rest of the way up the trail. I made it!!! I took some pictures with my phone etc and made my way down the double track/road. Get down to my car and find im missing my phone case/wallet. I forgot it back at the M. So, i hike back up to the M on the road and hike trail and thankfully find it on one of the plaques where i left it. Needless to say, after numerous people doubted me about making it ever, I made it to the M twice in one night. Not bad for a 26 year old with a weak heart!!!

and the bike...its a Iron Horse ARS 2.0

I have a trek hardtail mountain bike that I love, a BMX, and a racing bike that my dad built for me (he's a complete bike nut..). Racing bike is super nice but I definitely don't ride it enough, I can't even remember the make of the frame...

I've been wanting to try fixie but I don't know anyone with one, and don't ride enough to justify building (getting my dad to build for me) one.

Also been wanting to learn how to ride a motorcycle/get my hands on one...

My bike was stolen 4-5 years ago :(
Used to ride daily for a good hour or so. I miss it

I'm thinking about getting a Diamondback I saw at ****ssporttinggoods :)
