    Me too, preferably “big mountain” back country.

    And not in the Black Country.

    ‘Aggressive XC’ was a particular favourite of mine.

    What about trail bikes? I thought they were all mountain these days?!

    Mine’s not so much ‘all mountain’ more ‘most hills’, though I do ride it from the south coast to the north coast periodically, so maybe that makes it ‘cross country’? If it’s a trail bike are you only allowed to use it on fireroads? Perhaps it’s more ‘miduro’ than enduro being a hardtail and all.

    Aha. So this is a cross-country bike!

    That could fall under my “lightweight shit at everything” category, if it was light 😉

    I thought ‘All Mountain’ was DH for fun?

    Am I not ‘on trend’?

    What’s ‘Enduro’?

    I’m still not sure what “trail bike” is meant to mean, seeing as you get trails of all gnar levels from green to double black diamond.

    Trail Bike is dictated by which forum you frequent not which grade the trail is !
    Just ignore those coloured signs and ride round them the wrong way !

    It’s all the rage, or at least it is every time I ride a trail centre

    CEM – climb every mountain, even a handy theme tune to use for any marketeers out there.

    I ride a hardtail with a 150mm fork, what’s that? ‘Hard Mountain’?

    Broke back mountain?! 😉

    Same as it ever was. Bike plus mountain.

    Enduro is just the race format; no worries on the way up, time trial on the way down.

    An unbalanced feeling bike with needlessly high front end/bb?

    Someone should use the term ‘Big Country’ for a laugh.

    Discoduck: to right even the odd neeeeowm . Best bit is when going over a particularly bouncy bit is just opening your mouth and seeing whatcomes out.

    Has anyone mentioned trail bikes yet , they would seem to be what used to be am bikes only maybe a bit lighter

    But then as you can have a 160 mm bike at 28-29lb
    Is that just a normal bike now rather than a big big

    Oh god think I’ve confused my self now and going to dig out the rigid single speed for some sanity

    Some of us are riding DH frames as AM bikes… back when 6″ was considered “long travel”…
