    I like the Acro Bike better because it is more controlled. The mach bike is so difficult to turn. But the Acro is much much better. I love the Acro. I only use Mach for story purpouses.

      I like the acro, because I barely ever need the mach bike. I don't need to go fast because I have my ways of speeding up the game.

        I Dont Have A Favorite As They Both Have Their Ups And Downs.

        Mach
        -Really Fast
        -Speed Past Non-Battled Trainers W/O Them Seeing You
        -Goes Up Those Wierd Jaw Shaped Things On The Mountain Walls
        -Needed To Get Rayquazza
        -To Fast For Comfort

        Acro
        -Cool Tricks
        -Easy Pace
        -Easy To Control
        -Slow
        -Easily Seen By A Non-Battled Trainer
        -Has No Speacial Story Purpose.

        So I Just Use Action Replay And Use A Code To Have Both Bikes...Lol.

          Mach Bike for me, mainly cos I do a lot of breeding and it helps speed the process up.

            I like the Acro better because it's more easy to controll,I don't think it goes to fast or to slow it's just perfect! I like that you can do wheelies and jump up in the air on it. The Mach bike goes waaaaaaay to fast.....for me. I like that you can go past trainers without them seeing you sometimes though.

              I usually don't use either, preferring to use the Running Shoes. It's only when I go hunting for items or Pokémon that I'll use either bike accordingly.

                I like the Acro better because it's easier to control, I have a really hard time everytime in the Sky Pillar with the Mach.

                But my favorite is the B button technic, I don't need the speed that much :D

                  If you're having trouble with the Sky Pillar, get a bit of practise in on Cycling Road. If you can finish the course in about 10-12 seconds with little to no collisions, you're pretty good to go, cos at that level you'll have mastered the speed necessary for all those tricky turns. The fastest speed I seem to manage is 9.16 seconds.

                    Definitely the Mach Bike. IIRC, the Acro Bike isn't any faster than the Shoes and I don't care about the wheelies. If I am going there I want to get there as fast as possible. Plus, Mach is much better for breeding purposes.

                      Acro. The Mach Bike is just too **** fast for me.

                        I go with the Mach bike because it is the most usefull in the game.

                            I prefer the acro, but I usually have the mach, because of obvious reasons.

                                    I like both of them. The Mach bike helps you get to places when you need to get there fast. The Acro bike helps you access certain places.

                                        judge each bike by the tasks it accomplishes and think about it.

                                        rayquaza or a full heal? mach bike any day.

                                          I'd have to agree with Toothache and gerudodragon1.
                                          The Mach Bike is needed for one of the most important things in the game, getting Rayquaza from the very top of the Sky Pillar.
                                          I honestly think the makers of the game expect you to like the Acro bike because it is more controlled. But then, you need the Mach Bike for the Sky Pillar, and you don't know how to controll it.
                                          The Mach Bike is liked by those who have mastered its speed and turning.
                                          Toothache has a good point, if you leave pets at the daycare for breeding often, the Mach Bike seems to make the paces needed pass much quicker (That goes for hatching eggs too.).
                                          Also, the Mach Bike is needed to get up the muddy slopes above Mauville City and some near Foretree.

Someone told me that if you never crash and beet it in less that 30 seconds, the person gives you an item. Is that true?
