Did ok. Since I live at 9k above sea level all my training was done on a stationary bike due to snow,etc. Anyway I was so looking forward to racing in warm weather. At starting line it was 38 degrees. I finished I didn't do that great in my age level but it felt good. Sure my legs were sore so I decided to punish myself with another 35 mile single track race in June. This time it was 92 degrees and improved my time came in tenth place. The other category is doing 60 miles of single track. Those men and women are very impressive. You sure see a lot of nice mountain bikes at these races.

I've been riding my rigid hybrid more lately vs. my mountain bike. Can leave right from my door - and kind of do suburban/urban exploration rides for cross- training and enjoyment.

It's early Fall here - highs in the mid to high 70's, with lower humidity in the air. Beautiful days. I was reminded yesterday that one of the things I like about bicycling is less gear. You can feel the wind better. Just less encumbered with "stuff". I like the simplicity of it.

Been riding both for some years… Just can't get over the 80-20 rule in Mountain biking. 80% uphill shite and 20% downhill fun…. whereas with enduro / trail riding on dirt bike you have the 100% rule - pure big smiles 100% up or down!! Only reason for the 80% uphill on MTB is to get fitter for the 5 hour enduro race on the dirt bike. FACT
If you are not falling, you are not trying hard enough.... ; )

The primary advantage to the bicycle is taking my little 1 year old daughter with me. The cheap Bell baby seat from Walmart has been a blast. Dad gets a workout and little lady gets out of the house. The rails-to-trails thing is very popular in NE Tennessee area and we have enough choices to keep us entertained. The trails are not the tough single track that I still love but at least I am outside with my girl.

How old will she have to be before I get to buy a little pw50 for her?

Dang my bad. I found this thread through google and didn't read before replying. That's what happens when I have nothing to do at work.

Dirt Bikes or Mountain Bikes

Hi, my preference would be a Mountain Bike. I believe that mountain bikes performs better and suited to different activities when it comes to travelling compared to dirt bikes. We have been using our Mountain bikes for several years already.
