I liked Acro for a while, it was easy to handle, etc...but in my latest playthrough I've decided to try the Mach, just to see how it is. Yeah, it's better...

I prefer Acro Bike, because Mach Bike is "too fast" and it's very boring...

Personally, I liked Mach Bike more because I like fast bikes and this bike makes me roam through the hoenn region, but it's sometimes uncontrollable because of it's speed, but it's still awesome, I hope they return these things in the future games

The acro bike is cool and all, but the mach one is better and more useful. I like going faster instead of doing little tricks and stuff.

I went with the Acro Bike because I find the Mach Bike hard to control (especially along those annoying crumbling floors!) and it gave me access to the Safari Zone Pokemon I liked better. Also, it's blue which is a color I heavily associate myself with.

Definitely the mach bike, I love the speed. The acro is fun but when I need to get around I'll just jump on my mach bike and ride off into the sunset

The Acro Bike is the one I tend to use for most of the game, except in circumstances that riding up is needed (like slopes). Doing tricks is fun

Acro at the time it came out. I was into BMX then and it was another way to have fun for me. If I would play it these days I would say Mach.

Mach! Speedy speedy and really fun despite being hard to control. I loved zooming super fast to hatch my eggs and the Acro felt too slow in comparison since I was so used to the former.

When it comes to choosing between the Mach Bike and the Aero Bike, I have to go with the Mach Bike. Main reason why I like it is its speed.

Although the Acro bike was fun to use and bunny-hop with, the Mach bike is my favorite, of course because it was sooo fast!! I kinda wish they had kept this 2-bike concept for future games as well, made for some cool possibilities

Like a lot of people, I loved the Mach Bike's speed. I am was really impatient so the Acro Bike never had a chance. Like OP, a lot of my time was spent hatching eggs so the speed was nice to have. The Acro Bike's tricks were kind of cool though.

I always pick Mach, but I do occasionally go switch it out for the Acro if I feel like I need it to get to some parts of some routes.

I know Acro is cool and all being able to jump and go the opposite way of cliffs with those rocks, but lets face it
if you wanna be somewhere fast, you choose mach bike :D

I first really loved the Acro Bike, but after I'd done all those rail-hopping tricks and stuff, I always stuck with the Mach Bike. It's just sooo fast. I wish FR/LG's bike was that fast.

I chose Mach Bike. I mean, Acro Bike can perform tricks and access some new places, but however, its not to my convenience and its hard for me to even slide up slopes

I chose the Mach Bike, but I just found out that if you hold down "B" to do the bunny hops, it counts as taking a step or something. Makes grinding take a little more time, but require less attention.
