My stable of mountain bikes include, and have included...
2008 Trek Fuel Ex 8 - I try to ride this one regularly - it is a good time
1999 Schwinn Homegrown - This was my primary ride that migrated into a city beater... first "real" mountian bike. It is a shame that I took such poor care of it.
I've also had a 2003 Giant NRS1 which was a quick bike which won me many middle of the road sport mtb races- but I decided I wanted to ride longer distances (12/24 hour solo... which never materialized) and migrated to the fuel above. This bike replaced a custom build on a 2001 Homegrown Factory frame (17"). Really nice frame, but it never had the ride quality of the 1999 frame (15") which I still own, but don't ride really because the fuel is just too much fun.

'05 yeti kokopelli, xt, bontrager, easton monkey lite sl, non-disk

i usually end up using it to chase down our escaping dog, although
i'd prefer to ride it for riding's sake, rather than as a vehicle for quadruped capture.

Own: Yes
Ride: Well....not in the last two years.
I used to ride it in the winter on the Illinois Prairie Path (crushed limestone) in a big group hammer fest after dark, but now spend all my time on the trainer in that time of year.
It's an 8 speed Specialized Stumpjumper with a mix of XT and XTR stuff hanging on it. Judy fork.
It was a fun ride. After everybody got rolling along we'd spend lots of time in the 42x12 and 11. I used to have over 50 watts of lights on my lightbar.

The good 'ol days.

+1 on that. I have gotten more fit riding my new road bike than I ever could have on my mtb (which I also love)

I've got a little bit of everything (check my signature)

2 road bikes
1 MTB
1 Cross bike

I actually started riding bikes as an adult on a MTB and raced them for a while, doing fairly well. Then I dropped out of riding all together for a while and picked it back up with road riding and now road racing and for the first time cyclocross racing in the fall.

Hardtail - 07 Specialized RockHopper Comp Disc
Full Suspension - 07 Felt Virtue Two

I try and get as much trail riding in as possible. My full suspension bike is my full-time trail riding bike now whereas my hardtail's been relegated to riding around down to the beach with the wife. I love trail riding at night.

I use my road bike for the occasional commute to work and some training or self-imposed century rides on the weekends.

I have a Merlin Obed I've had for years...

Some years it gets ridden more than others, this year I'm riding it quite a bit and really enjoying it... the good thing about mt. biking, yes the trees and rocks can smack you, but a car can't!

And Surprisingly for the Dallas area we have a few good trials.
