    Its not that wierd. Some people on here don't even bike. I meant generally, not yesterday/tommorrow. -> like "do you ride (generally)"? -> not "did you ride today"?

    When I have a working bike, I go as often as I can fit it into my schedule. Therefore, I've ridden twice since school started, and never on my bike.

    For some of us, "yes, as much as I can" and "yes, but not often" are the same thing.

    I ride a lot, I just don't post about it much. I'm actually a little burnt out from riding right now, winter will put an end to that though.

    how about a pic of the bike actually navigating (and magically accelerating around) a trail, instead of sitting in a stand?

    It's too damn fast for actual action shots... I'm lucky to be able to catch it in the stand.
