Howdy. I'm Nick. 26. I started racing 12 years ago, I was riding Downhill at the birth of the era, dual-slalom and doing XC on good days. After riding Juniors in Pennsylvania for 4 years with the likes of Floyd Landis, I gave up the bike for real life for a while.

I started riding again last summer in a local grassroots program, did a few winter short-track races and plan on going full out this summer again riding exclusively XC. I'm currently in Charlotte, NC USA. I'm 6' tall and 155lbs, have been for probably 8 years.

In the photo I'm riding my current 2000 K2 Razorback HT Grassroots Team bike, it comes in a little heavy at ~24lbs (10.9kg). Only yesterday I recieved a brand new '02 Razorback SL Carbon with Fox RL shock via FedEx direct from K2. I just weighed it this morning on a state-certified scale used for coffee beans, it came in at 5.91lbs (2.68kg). With planned parts and using actual weights posted on this website it should build up into a nice 22.5lbs. I'll post photos of the frame in the forums later.

Hey! I’m Denys aka Sandal among cyclists. This year I’m 24. I’m a bike fanatic and also a weight weenie to a reasonable extent. I ride road, endurance marathons and best of all XC, which is close to obsession. I’m from Europe, Ukraine, a beautiful country standing out with its recent orange revolution, boxers Klichko, soccer player Shevchenko, and that we’re hosting Eurovision this year (the event is actually booming outside my window.)

Here’s the bike I owed last year. MCM frame, marathon fork, martas, X0, stylo, SPD, AmClassic, Mavic, Syntace, other light stuff. – totaling at about 9kgs. This year I plan to build a whole new bike on Magnesium frame, with similar equipment, Mag road bike, and probably a full suspension.

Ride fast, but beware, I’m passing on your right!!!!........... YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, my name is Leon and i live in Austria since 2 month. I lived in The Netherlands before (Friesland). I'm 30 years old and biking since 2 months. I did a lot of mountainbiking in my early years ('93 - '96). In those days i had a Koga Miyata Skyrunner (carbon alu frameset). I wish i still had that bike...cult!! I did race in those days and competed against Bart Brentjes (when he was still a local hero in '94). Now i just bike for fun.

I work at a autobahnrestaurant but if you see my website...(my wife is now organizing Nordic Walking trips).. i am planning on organizing mountainbike trips next year. Here in Austria (Leogang) you can take Bikeguide lessons what means that if you pass you can organize trips.

So for all the people who are in to trips....watch my website. I don't have a pic from me riding my bike, i will take care of this a.s.a.p.

If you want to see my bike look in the forum under: what do you ride? The Klein was my dreambike in 93 along with a Breezer. Then i did not have the money to buy one of those bikes....now i have....so i bought my dreambike.

Happy mountainbiking!!

my Name is Marco am 25 atm and I've been riding a mountainbike for over 10 years now, I'm from the Netherlands.

I am also a member of the dutch mtb discussionboard (mountainbike.nl) but came here because I wanted to learn more about lowering the weight of my bike(s) on the dutch site most Mountainbikers are not really interested in lowering the weight of their bikes... they often find it a waist of time and money. so I did not get much help there. it is more often that they find me weird if I say that 50g is a nice weight saving.. :roll:

so I hope I can find some hints and tips to improve my bike, I am not a super weightfreak but I do like to give it a nice mix of good looking and light parts but still keep it comfortable enough.

Time for me to introduce... I'm Aki, age 31. I live in the southern part of Finland, town called Tampere. My occupation is at technical university, in the field on electrical engineering.

I ride on trails almost daily, but I don't really race. Weather conditions here in Finland are interesting from the mountain biking point of view. About 1/4 of the year (summer) trails are mostly dry and you don't need lights in the forest even in the night. About 5/12 of the year (spring and autumn) it's wet and dark. About 1/3 of the year the trails are dry and white (winter). Then it is very clean to ride on the trails. :) Your bike is at least as clean after the training as it was before it. The only problem is a bit chill weather...

By the way, soccer is another close friend of mine. ;)
