I have 5 bikes, well 4 and a half. One is a Scott Genius MC40 MTB, GT Ultra Road bike, which is my baby. a GT Peace (single speed) and a new member to the family, is a GT Gutterball (fixie). I also have a Kona Lava Dome, which is a hard tail MTB, which I'll be building it up to a Xtrabike.
I love riding both MTB's and road bikes. I ride just about everywhere I go. I use to be a bike messenger in the Sydney's CBD and did that for 10years. Most weekends, I ride with two bunch of guys.
