Mountain biking anyone?

I know there have to be some guys on here that do some mountain biking. I used to ride a lot but got out of it for a while. so I decided to take a mountain biking class this semester to force me to get out and ride. I have a gary fisher hardtail, a specialized hardrock sport and yesterday I picked up a 98 specialized FSR GroundControl. I put tire on the back and I'm gonna need to find a seat for it. then it needs a fork rebuild so I'll have to figure out how to do that or replace.
so if you ride, post up some pics of your bike! I'll get some tomorrow.

Ive been riding a 29'er single speed rigid her in WI. My friends are getting into FAT TIRE bikes. Do a search and you will get a kick out of those. They go through just about anything. We can even ride them in the snow up here.

I went mountain biking for the first time last weekend. One of the guys I work with is really into it, so I said Id go. We went to Paris Mountain in Greenville. He put me on the "expert" trail and I think I would have rather rolled down the mountain then go through that crap again. Ugh. I liked the easy trails, that was fun, but Im more of a ATV/dirtbike type of guy. Im lookin at gettin a Raptor soon..that is, if I can find ppl to ride with.
