Mountain Biking Cherokee Owners... whats your ride?

Hey All,
I have seen a number of you on here talking about Mountain Biking and a bunch of shots of your rigs with your bikes on them. I just did a weekend trip to Whistler for some DH fun and the Cherokee was a SWEET vehicle to haul all of our stuff.

Any shots of your rigs and bikes? Whats your bike? DH/XC/AM? What was your last MTB + Jeep road trip? What rack are you rolling with?

Last trip...





I am rolling on a 2007 Norco Shore Freeride bike. Sweet kit, 2009 Domain, Hadley Hubs, Shimano Drivetrain all loaded on a 2000 Cherokee Classic (see Profile for details).

I have a new closeup bike photo somewhere...lol

It goes in the hatch of my XJ, so no pics on the rig.

im not too crazy into MT biking but i run a trek 4300 that i built, shimano drivetrain and mechanical discs, and a manitou super skareb fork, it is a super light XC fork, but when i am hill climbing i have to struggle to keep the front on the ground, i forget what model of sun rims im running, and then some kenda 2.3s

its not a wild bike, but i have to ride it to school during the year too, so i need decent road tires too.
jeep is in the sig.

lower your air pressure and a slighty shorter stem will help keep your front tire down. and use a harder gear for those hills, too much torque in the easier gears

i'll have to take some pics of it. i've been a professional bike mechanic for over 15 years, so i get pretty good deals on stuff. i'm a single speeder for sure. living in the middle of Indiana, there arens' too many hills, so the need for gears is pretty much non existent, unless you go to hoosier national forest. there are some pretty tough climbs there. it's still do-able on an SS bike with a 20 tooth rear cog though!
