MAMIL, really it's hilarious. I'm so pleased my road bike is now sold... never used it, horrible way to ruin a bike ride- Tarmac and Cars. I'll replace it worth another mountain bike at some point, but no rush; it's hardly clement at the moment.

Just taking up MTB riding myself Jimbo.  Awaiting delivery of my mates Canyon! My Lapierre is constantly winking at me to take it out on the trails!

Similar colour scheme to mine too:



I'm just about running our of steam when it comes to MTB's now though.  Done lots in the past and still enjoy the odd marathon event and little pilgrimages to the Alps for some serious downhill action, but the bike that excites me most at the moment though is my cyclocross bike.
