        Translation of Steve's method.

        1: In your AdminCP, create a custom profile field.
        2: In the templates section of the AdminCP, edit your postbit template to include the new field like so, but replace x with the custom profile field number.

        Bike: $post[fieldx]
        Ride With: $post[fieldx]
        Best Stunt: $post[fieldx]
