Most of the rides here are stock MTBs 26 to 29". Trinx and Foxter brand. Stock MTB meaning, still using the all-terrain tires. Few managed to switch to road or gravel tires (hybrid conversion). It matters because these MTBs are mostly used for commute around the city where road tires are better

2nd most popular type are folding bikes. Trinx and Dahon brands. Followed by road and BMX bikes and finally, the kid's 20" MTBs. Mostly being used for commuting. Majority of users of kid's 20" MTBs are women. Even saw women riding kid's 20" fat bikes! Mini velos with 20" tires are exceptionally rare.

Group rides are very often multiple bike types. MTB, Folding, and road bikes.

$1000+ bikes are exceedingly rare. Only the rich owns them. Very rarely see them in the city because the rich will only use them in trails or the countryside roads. They're the only ones that can afford to make long drives or rides every weekends and otherwise, have tons of free time!
