i find upbeat techno to be the best for twisty single tracky stuff. its fun to try and ride to the beat, it gives you a good rhythm and sometimes you go faster :thumbsup:

for climbing and such, classic rock works nicely. AC/DC and aerosmith come to mind

The birds
The wind in the forest
The tires of my bike on the trail
Me sucking air
My little doggies footsteps running beside me


Better then any music I ever heard

i tried riding with music last month and, being a serious guitarist as well, found myself distracted from the riding, focusing too much on the music.

Like some of the others I listen to the music of the great outdoors. For me that is part of the joy of being on the mountain bike. The wind, the grinding of the tires on the dirt, the tweety birds tweeting away, the rustle of the leaves in the trees. All music to my ears. That is what I enjoy, of course you are entitled to listen to whatever pleases you. In the end it is all about being on the bike.

Music to my ears:

Chain slap
Fork bottoming
Rim denting
Tubeless burping
Knobbies howling
Chain grinding
And so on...

I too cant focus on the trail if I have music blasting in my ears....

However on the road bike, its great to ride with tunes. Lately its been Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, Hendrix, BB King and Zeppelin among others.
