    Lets here it for the AM / FR drink of choice

    I just wanted to take a moment amongst all the “what to buy… oh god help” posts and just give a little love to the drink the fuels so many questionable rides…

    The one, the only, Nectar of the gods… (All) Mountain Dew.

    Go ahead and post some love.

    Mountain Dew was back in the early 90s when everyone wanted to have a mountain bike hanging up INSIDE their apartment because the saw it on Seinfeld and 'Dew was the cool drink.

    These days, it's all about the Rockstar, but I'm sure I'm behind the times too.

    Coor’s tall cans gave me the courage to go for my first sketchy singletrack rides down Mt. Tam before the trails were closed 25 years ago.

    We’d wrap them in aluminum foil to insulate for the climb up. 1 was plenty and not too much after a hot climb to catch the sunset. Then bomb down Huckleberry and Hoo Koo E Koo and S-Trail into Madrone Canyon and home nearby.

    Energy drinks? Coffee before a ride sometimes.

    Water for rides.

    Laganitas IPA for post ride!

    As an overseas poster, is this Mountain Dew that people keep mentioning? I'd always assumed it was another variant of Sprite or 7-Up (i.e. sugar and clear carbonated water, no flavouring). Is it something else?

    It is another variant of Sprite or 7-Up, just like AM is a variant of XC.

    Noooo! You should be burnt for such heresy- AM is completely different from XC. You gotta have special bikes, special saddles and even special derailleur adjustment screws to ride AM. And you know this is true, 'cause there's even a special "All Mountain" MTBR forum

    Fill your Camelback (bladder) with ice and water, stuff a Red Bull next to it to keep it cool. . . don't forget the cooler full of Newcastle for the post-ride afterglow. . .

    2nd that!!!

    I second empty's suggestion. I like Red Bull, along with water. I also like a post ride micro brew. However, I am off the wagon this month (seeing if I can drop a few lbs) so I will not be enjoying one until a few months go by.

    for actual riding it's gotta be water. for after the ride, mountain dew or any "energy drink" will do.

    Okay, I'll crack. I suppose I'll share the secret family recipe.

    1 part Mtn. Dew
    2 parts random cow carcass bits (only after hucking said cow)
    1 part Red Bull
    1/4 part HEED from Hammer Nutrition
    1/2 part badger urine (3 days old kept in a hot car)
    2 parts contaminated city river water unfiltered
    Ginseng (however much you f%$#@ want @$$hole)

    Stick in a blender and puree for 3-5 seconds leaving a slightly coarse texture to tickle the throat as you suck it down like a true AM champ.
