I thought there was an existing thread but I can't find it.

Bought a bike today to get back into riding, mainly going to ride bush trails around the local area. It is a bog stock Scott Scale 640 2013 model, I am resisting the urge to mod. Went for a quick ride this arvo, bike goes great, pity about the engine :-[

Not my pic but I have one of these - Specialised Stumpjumper Expert 2007 which I have had since new. I used to ride weekends and even do some mid week single track at night but have barely ridden in last few years. About to start commuting on it to shed some kilos with a goal of getting back into some MTBing whilst away camping.

Here's my Peugeot. bought it in 1990, converted it to flat bar roadie long before manufacturers were doing it.
weighs 10kg, has 700x23mm kevlars at 120psi, rolls like there's always a tailwind compared to the MTB
fantastic for the commute carving up all the joggers.

My good MTB generally won't go camping, not secure enough. I recently bought this beauty for $15 with 90's purple anodised goodness.

Bit of a shame the grey tyres were past it, been replaced now. Found some old v brakes to upgrade with and put some new grips on. All good for hauling the littlest around in a trailer, or on the bub seat on the back depending on the weather. Bigger kids can pedal themselves.

The 20yo steel road bike (commuter), try hard hipster fixie(Friday commuter), 2 MTBs (SS or XC weapon) will stay home for most trips keeping the garage warm.
