I'm living in Lancaster county Pennsylvania. I have a mountain bike I ride on "rails to trails" along the Susquehanna River. I also have a Workman Tri-Fecta 3-wheeler, I love riding it at flea markets and swap meets , it carries alot.

I live in Ontario, Canada, I like to ride my fs bike and my hardtail bike on the jumps and on the trails.
I also really enjoy making trails.

I live in Las Vegas, NV. It is the perfect time of year to be riding, it is cool and we never get 117°F (47.222°C) days in the fall, winter, or in the early spring. I live on the east side of the valley and I enjoy riding the River Mountain Loop trail. Most of the 34+ mile trail is a separate path with no cars allowed, making it a safe location/path to ride.

Tis easy to add the Hoover Dam to this trail for an amazing scenic climb and down hill to visit the Arizona side of the dam.

I'm in central Virginia and getting back in the saddle after about 3 years off. No health issues just got busy with life. I own 3 mountain bikes and a specialized road bike and I love them all! Can't wait to start enjoying this nice weather!

I live in Galax, Virginia during the warm months of the year and in Brooksville, Fl during the winter. Our, my wife and I, love to ride the New River Trail that starts in Galax. It is a very popular biking destination. It runs for 57 miles from Galax, to Pulaski Va. It was originally a railroad track and became a state park years ago. We own two X-spec folding mountain bikes which we can carry in the back of our SUV. We started riding about two months ago. We hit the trail at least once a week and ride it in round trip segments.

I’m from San Diego and I live by the beach so I like to ride around the beach and bay. I just recently started riding after not riding for 35 years. I am just a leisurely rider and wanted to ride to get a little more exercise besides walking. I recently purchased a used 24” Electra Cruiser 7 and I love it! I would like to replace my derailleur and the cassette or flywheel once I figure out which type I have. I know I have a Revoshift SL-RS35 7 Speed Right Side Shifter and a Shimano Tourney 7 Speed Rear Derailleur RD TY300 but I don’t know if I have a freewheel or cassette or what type of chain I have. I like to diy whenever I can because I’m retired and on a fixed budget. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading my long intro. LOL

From central Alabama, and own two bikes (three if you count my missing mountain bike, stolen off my porch.)

1. Meridian trike, single speed, band brake on rear, caliper on front. Currently unridable. Sad

2. 10-speed road bike (unsure of brand, sorry) also unridable.

3. Ross 26" 21-speed MTN bike (mfg date sometime in 1980s. When last seen, was in excellent ride shape; had just been restored to fully working. Police working on recovery, since they know who stole it and have some ideas where it might be.

I'm nearly 60, working in the IT industry, and walking to stay fit. Planning on thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2027. For on:ious reasons, I don't have any routes I currently ride.

Awesome!

I lived in San Diego when I was a kid, La Jolla, in fact. My brother and I used to bomb around the canyons on our Raleigh Rampar BMX bikes (this was late-70s), I think I remember riding my bike to school sometimes but man, some of those hills were BRUTAL! Definitely paper-boyed my way up a few of those. Big Grin

My bro just moved down to SD from the Sonoma area. His cycling reports leave me super jealous (although his $5k MTB getting stolen from his condo's 'secure bike storage' wasn't so great....)

I don't know your particular bike but I'm pretty sure it uses a standard Shimano cassette and SIS index chain. That's a long-cage rear derailleur, so it should handle a wide spread of gears, but you're still limited to seven speeds at the back. I find when I'm exploring product ranges new to me, it's best to ask at a couple of local bike shops, just to avoid expensive mistaken purchases.

One other thing to note: technically, you should be free to mix Shimano and SRAM cassettes and chains. However, though long-change derailleurs let you run a wider spread of gears at the back, the gear shifts tend to be less 'snappy' than you get with a short-cage derailleur. If you, say, throw a SRAM cassette on there, it's possible that you'll end up with less-satisfactory shifting. It's not necessarily a problem but it's worth bearing in mind.

One final, final note (honest): in future, you might get faster responses to wrenching/technical questions in the Repairs and Mechanics 'room' here.

I hope that helps. Feel free to post more posers and happy riding!

I am from South India and there I primarily rode to get to-back from school. Then in the US, I primarily rode to get to work and back. Then slowly got into touring but on a kind of bikepacking setup. I did some weekend, weeklong bike rides before I got an opportunity to ride with a couple of friends ( I met on Adventure Cyclist Classified section) through Colombia, Ecuador. In Ecuador, we did Trans Ecuador Mountain Bike Route (TEMBR). I love it and sm still here after 4-months exploring more parts of Ecuador..

And, looking to live here longer so that I get to push my bike up these steep mountains..:-)

We have a River walk which winds around the city with miles of tranquil touring and more than a couple of great fishing spots along the way.

Im from the Philippines and my favorite route here is the Audax 300 route from Subic all the way to Pangasinan. Its a 150km route feayuring scenic views of beaches, mountains and sometimes even graveyards 🤣 Pretty amazing diverse views with only less than 1000m elevation gain.

Off road. I live in a rural town Clarksville, AR. It's very beautiful and I enjoy riding down the forest service trails and gravel roads.

I'm from the Philippines and I live in Metro Manila, we have a short 100km route where you get to climb a nearby province that is overlooking a lake with a volcano right in the middle. Pristine view that was featured once in GCN Tech
