I bike.... but I cheat... mine has a V4 on it.

BUT... when you take a 900 pound bike out for 5-6 hour ride you come home pretty much wore out, it takes alot to control a bike that heavy especially on back roads.

Yep its great exercise without feeling like a workout. The first few months of bike ownership will nickel and dime you though. Bottle, tubes, pump, helmet, gloves, tools, car rack

Look for a helmet with lots of ventilation, and some fingerless gloves for summer like Fox digits. The first time you eat it on a rocky trail you will be happy about the gloves, I learned the hard way. I also learned to carry an extra tube and patch kit the hard way. Specialized pumps are good and can be rebuilt also Joe Blow I hear is good.

mtbr.com is a good site

Also no biking in boxer shorts

I used to XC race, I used to race pro for JF2 but after the accident I had in 2005 I havent raced since. During my racing career I was USA national champion for three years straight and got to see a lot of famouse cyclists such as Floyd Landice and Lance Armstrong. If you need and help with anything bike wise then PM me and Ill be more than happy to lend a hand or knowlege.
