To all the cyclists on here, what kind of bike do you own? BMX? Mountain Bike? Racing Bike? Chopper?

I own a mountain bike, full suspension, silver.

Think there's a cycling thread on Grandstand mate, they do all the bike talk in there.

Turns out the only biking thread in the sports section is the mountain bike thread, which was a good read, but this thread is on about what bike you ride in general. I don't know if it belongs in sports or off topic, so if the mods want to move it to the correct section then feel free

One of these bad boys. Gears, suspension and low center of gravity are for homos.

Got myself a mountain bike (Genesis core 10) through the bike to work scheme even though i have no intentition of using it to bike to work (I work a 45 min drive up the M5!) Been bitten by the bug and already planning how i can upgrade some its less than great components... a new set of forks is first.

I am not a serious biking enthusiast, I just enjoy cycling in the Summer, so I think this is a better thread for me!!!

I just have a cheap apollo city bike (looks like a feeble kind of moutain bike to my untraied eye), which is fine for my needs.  It's comfortable enough on canal paths and perfect for roads.

Would never buy from halfords again tho, had to go back 3 times and explain to the supposed pro bike mechanic how big a fuck-up he was!!?!?!

I've got a Saracen Mantra 1 mountain bike 06 model. Don't use it much, I really should. I wouldn't be such a fat lump of lard if I did.

I have a rather ancient (well, 10 years old this September) mountain bike which, I'll be honest, I haven't cleaned properly in yonks but it suits me fine for the occasional cycle to work.

Despite it being a mountain bike, I wussed it up a little by having a basket fitted to the front.

Purchase of bike through the bike to work scheme is imminent. I went into a bike shop today to get some idea of prices. Going to go for a half-decent hybrid, as I'm going to be using it every day. Also need the ephemera that goes with it, as it's been ... some time ... since I rode a bike. Need the works, helmet, lock, reflective gear, puncture repair kit, etc.

I'm genuinely excited about this. It's going to totally change my lifestyle. I'm dropping the car, and using train for longer travel, and the bike for everything else. The longest distance I regularly travel is the cinema, six miles away. And that's by car, so I dunno if there's a cycle path that could cut through. My morning commute takes 30 minutes to drive 3 miles, or 1hr to walk it. (I walk slow...) With cycle paths and no traffic to contend with on a bike, I should get to work by bike in less time than it takes to drive. Which is insane, really.

If anyone knows anything about bikes, the one that the chappy in the shop recommended as a good "workhorse" was the Ridgeback Element. I'm not looking for massive speed, just something that will do what I want, a lot.
