You might recall taking Vital's annual survey a few months ago - over 6,000 of you completed it. For those that did, thanks for participating!

We've gone through and tabulated the results. Here's a quick teaser:

  • Average age: 29.4
  • Average household income: $78,165
  • Top three countries: USA, UK, Canada
  • 44.5% of you raced in the last year, and of those downhill was the most popular race type, but cross-country wasn't far behind.
  • You guys ride an average of 2.6 times per week (that's more than most do, heck yeah!).
  • You own an average of 2.3 bikes at a cost of $3,525 a pop.
  • The most popular type of bike owned is an all-mountain/trail bike.
  • 45.2% will buy a brand new ride in the next year (check the results to see what'll be popular).
  • It's an almost dead even split between SRAM and Shimano when it comes to the shifting and derailleur department.

To dive into the nitty gritty and nerd out on the numbers, click here to view the results. You'll learn who the Vital MTB community is made of (it's a good crowd), where we're all from, how often we ride, which brands have the most interest and more.
