In RSE, we were had a choice between two bikes. Each bike had its advantages and disadvantages. The Mach Bike was really fast and kind of hard to control, but you could ride up muddy ledges, over faulty cracks in the ground in certain places, and you were graded on your performance on Cycling Road. Also makes hatching eggs go along quicker. The Acro Bike was more technical. While you couldn't go very fast, you could do various tricks like bunny hopping and poppin' wheelies. You could also ride over small rails.

So which bike do you prefer? Or which bike did you take first? I always choose the Mach Bike. I like being able to just glide through the region. And I can pretty much do Cycling Road blind, lmao.

I always do Mach Bike. I looooove speed.

This reminded me of a conversation I had at the dining hall with my friends once:
Friend 1: I need to get my bike fixed.
Friend 2: Well, there's a bike shop behind (insert building here)
Friend 1: Really?
Me: Yeah, and the bike shop is really slow on business, so they'll try to advertise by giving you a bike. But they have two different types, one goes fast but one does really sweet jumps...
Friend 1: THE ONE THAT JUMPS!
Friend 2: THE ONE THAT GOES FAST!

    Mach. I love the speed and it's more useful at times. Though it's a tough call.

      I find the Acro more entertaining but the Mach bike more useful.

      Gotta go fast!

      ...In other words, the Mach Bike. I quite like the Acro too but once I've explored all the places/not trying to exploit it to make finding Latios/Latias easier I prefer the speed boost. Of course, I remembr playing a version of the game with a bit of hax which allowed me to have both which was nice. =)

      The acro bike is just plain cooler, so I always use it, unless I actually need the mach bike. (Or I'm trying to do that speed challenge on cycling road. So hard D:)

        Well, I alway choose Mach Bike first. But that's just so I can get up mud-slides. Once I can get everywhere, unless I'm doing the Cycling Road, I choose Acro Bike.

        I don't really have a preference for either bicycle, and I love going fast, but the novelty of having the Acro Bike to do wheelies etc. means that I always end up with it in Emerald. That and the ability to cheat the Safari Zone step counter. Also, with Mach Bike I can't capture myself any new Phanpy.

          They are both good bikes, Mash Bike is useful for traveling and Acro Bike is useful for the S Zone counter

          Acro Bike.

          The Mach Bike handles with all the nimbleness and agility of a school bus. I hate it with a passion and use it only when I absolutely need to.

            At first I was all about the Mach bike, but that thing just goes a little too fast- now I only use it when I need to go through Rayquaza's tower, or hatching an egg. I prefer the Acro bike now because it's actually pretty fun, haha.

              The Mach Bike was awesome because of its speed but that's about all it had going for it. It was always my first choice but the Acro Bike was just so much more useful so I tended to end up with that always in my items when I didn't really want it there and ran everywhere instead.

                Well, the Mach is reallly fast and I usually choose it because of how impatient I am, but I can take the Acro off some sweet jumps. I can go like 3 feet in the air.

                  Acro bike, because I don't much care for blasting forward like a jet always, and I prefer Heracross to Pinsir in the Safari Zone, and I have strangely found the Acro more useful then the Mach. Maybe I'm just a freak.

                      I like the Acro bike. Wheelies are so much fun :3 But sometimes I use the Mach Bike when I'm in a hurry.

                          Mach Bike because of the momentum that was one of the mechanics introduced in Third Generation.

                            I like speed, so Mach Bike all the way. The Acro Bike is cool, but stops being useful after you explore all of the spots that it's required for. Initially, I thought the Mach Bike was too hard to control. After a while, though, I got used to it. I was even able to do the Cycling road minigame without hitting anything (just once though).

                                  I typically take the Mach Bike because it's more useful. However, later on in the game, it's more fun to explore and do tricks with the Acro Bike.

                                    Mach Bike.
                                    Merely it's fun faster and more effcient.
                                    I used the Acro bike later to explore area's near Fortree and in the Safari Zone.
                                    Then it had no use for me.

                                      I use to always use the Acro Bike because of the cool tricks you could do with it, but now I prefer the speed of the Mack Bike. I rarely use bikes though...
