The weather is starting to finally warm up a bit in my area and that means it's time to dig out the MTB. There must be other riders in here and I imagine some of you live where you can ride year-round.

I figured this would be a good spot to talk shop for bikes, trip plans, riding spots, post your setups (both MTB and Bronco Sport).

What are your plans with the BS and what vehicle setup did you come from?

Have a Thule 2" hitch-mounted we used on the old minivan, so I'll be glad to get use out of that again on the Sport with my Trek hybrid (just street/trails for me).

Ibis Mojo 3 in "Sharkbite" on a Kuat Transfer hitch rack on our BS OB in Area 51. They complement each other nicely 😁

The old rig was a 2001 Infiniti QX4. MTB trail locations usually involve good driving roads so I may eventually figure out a good way to carry the bike on my 2018 Camaro, but until then the BS will do very nicely.

That is a sharp looking combination!

I've ridden mountain bikes socially/casually for the best part of 20+the years. With all this isolation crazy, I dropped a couple bucks on a fat tire. I still have my original Gary Fisher from '98, but the fatties give me freedom to ride all year, snow or not. Just lower the tire pressure and off you go. Mountain bikes was one of the chief reasons I selected a sport. I could have purchased an F-150 and that would be easier to haul, but I also like the sport for just getting there. Anxious to hit the trails soon as my daily driver two door coupe doesn't haul bikes.

Curious if my XL Santa Cruz Tallboy will fit upright in the back...I have a Rockymounts hitch rack but it would be sweet if I could keep my bike inside for unplanned lunch rides. Will have to check tomorrow.

Mine are older 26"ers. I've heard some remove the seat post I'm curious as well.
