In terms of use, I picked mach bike for the speed. Though in terms of sounding, I think the Acro bike sounds wayyy cooler than Mach Bike. I think I've played too much Mario Kart so Mach bike is old

I prefer Mach bike because of better speed and because I don't really like jumping around with acro bike - it takes just too much time lol

In my first play through, I choose Mach and didn't even bother with Acro, since then I never even gave it a chance, but maybe I will in my next play through!

I loved the Mach Bike, I remember as a kid I spent a lot of time racing through the Cycling Road, trying to beat my personal best time.

I caught myself doing this the other day, actually. I've been playing Emerald here lately, and likewise I've been spending a lot of time in Mauville City/Verdanturf Town (battling the few trainers in the area with lvl 30+ pokemon), and remembered Cycling Road being close. Needless to say, I spent a good ten minutes trying to get a time I was happy with. Good memories.

I like the Mach better, despite all the tricks you can do with the Acro. Speed ftw!

I picked Acro Bike at first simply because the name sounded cooler and Rydel never gave a hint at the bikes' uses. I discovered the wheelie and hopping phenomena and used it to get through to the inaccessible places in the Safari Zone and the route behind Fortree City. It was a cool niche, but when I went back to get the Mach Bike, I found it was so fast, thus perfect for hatching eggs. I also quickly learnt to go over mudslides and cracked tiles. Ever since then, I used Mach Bike.

While I naturally prefer the Mach Bike because of its speed, if I have to switch to the Acro Bike to access otherwise inaccessible areas, I will (I'll just switch back straight after!)

I prefer Acro bike, because of its easier handling. Mach bike was just too fast and I bumped into every moving and standing thing!

I switched between bikes quite a bit actually. But I did use the Acro Bike more. I loved doing the tricks. ^w^b

I used to think the Mach Bike was pronounced like "match bike." Shut up, I was seven. ;____;

This was actually pretty hard for me. I liked them both. Mach Bike is nice and fast, but the Acro Bike let you do cool tricks here and there. In the end I chose the Acro Bike because sometimes the Mach Bike is a little too fast and I liked the concept of the Acro Bike more. The tricks were fun to do!

I could never control the Mach Bike worth a damn when I was a kid, so I always went with Acro, and it ended up being really cool to reach all the secret places you could hop to.

Mach Bike. At first, I couldn't get the hang of it, but once I learned to control it, the rest was history. :] The Acro Bike couldn't keep up with how fast I was, so naturally I didn't settle for something inferior.

I... I still did think it was pronounced like that ;_;

But yeah, Mach bike all the way, I remember first getting it as a kid and my head exploding because of how awesomely crazy fast it was...

In my opinion, the bikes have never been as good since Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald!

Mach Bike all the way! Flying and bumping into stuff because it was too fast for my control was so much fun! xD

When I first played Ruby and Sapphire, I loved the Mach Bike simply because it was faster and I liked challenging myself to see if I wouldn't bump into anything on Cycling Road and places like Slateport. However, a couple years ago I found myself leaning toward the Acro Bike. While it doesn't go as fast as the Mach Bike and is useless in Sky Pillar (except for the first time you go through it in Emerald), I love being able to do tricks and like not bumping into things often. So I'd have to go with the Acro Bike.

Mach bike was my go-to device, should I feel the need to go even faster than normal.

But I think the speed on foot in RSE was actually very significant.
Faster than the other games for sure! So because of that I rarely if ever used my bikes. XD;

Mach bike, it gets me places faster, so I can compete the game quicker.

Mach Bike. It's faster and helps you get past the puzzles the second time you visit the Sky Pillar.

However, the Acro Bike's stunts did not make me like it as I felt it was not needed while I played the game. The Acro Bike was slower as well.
