    Here's mine!

    Redline Monocog 29er

    Slingshot BigShot


    For me an "All Mountain" bike is one that lets me do most anything I want short of big drops, jumps and hucking. AKA a "mountain bike."

    That ain't right, Shiggy!

    The AM forum's not 24 hours old, and you're posting rigid bikes posing as AM units...and you, a moderator. Have you no shame?...Bwaaaaah!

    Well, I count these as "AM", too, but they have 26" wheels.


    The Kona can let me do the bigger jumps and drops (note I did not say I can do them) and can weigh as much s 45 pounds.

    Shiggy...LOL!...humor me. What are those last bikes actually used for? Honest...no flame here, but I guess we're a little more one-dimensional in our MTB types and useage in my part of the country. I was thinking something along the lines of cyclocross, but those don't look like any CXC bikes I've seen in magazines...LOL! It doesn't look like photoshop, either. What's the deal?

    Everything. I ride pretty much everything off road with them. Same for the 29ers. I have chased, and stayed with, Heckler mounted riders do many a descent on the Slingshot as pictured except it had dropbars then (and will again soon).

    I have a real 'cross bike for cyclocross (which I have also ridden on some fairly rugged singletrack).

    I have been riding dropbars off road since '85. Can not stand straight bars for more than a few miles.
