    I know, I forgot to take the reflector's off this morning. It was a little embarrassing but nobody said anything. Besides my two falls probably much more entertaining.

    Despite the two falls, I am getting used to the bike. The two falls were more results of not knowing trails then anything else. I just hope I can make it through this initial phase of scrapes and bruises.

    No action shots yet. I've been dialing in the ride a bit each time I am out. I dropped the pressure in the tires and tractions has improved:

    Just pulled the trigger on 1 tonight! Looking to get back on the trails after a 15 year hiatus. 2 blown out discs will require some cushioning and I hope this fits the bill.

    I hope you enjoy yours as much as I am enjoying mine. I also came back to mountain biking after 10 to 15 years.

    jhazard, great video!

    I was actually getting a bit bored with "trail riding" - 29ers got me hooked again, and the Hobgoblin has me stoked! You guys will love it!

    Absolutely. I wish I could get some better shots but there is a nice canopy on most of the trails so light is low. I am digging it, not my body. Both me and the bike have taken quite a beating since its arrival.

    Mbakes:

    Is that a wood trail feature in the background? No wonder you are taking a beating!

    Let's see some action shots!

    There are a few of those. One is probably 100' long and narrows in the middle. I dropped about 2' off of that one on one ride and took a nice hit. Out of about 40 plus miles of ridding over 6 different days, I've had 3 falls which I felt for a while after. I am pretty sure I bruised some ribs on my first fall which I still feel 2 weeks later. Between not knowing the bike and the trails, I knew there would be some pain involved and at 52 it lasts a bit longer than it did that last time I was out there, years ago.

    Hero 3 is coming soon.

    I hope to have mine within the next month or so. I have a custom Ti road bike frame to pay for first. I forgot that I took a picture of part of the wood bridge:

    I would be interested to see some reviewers compare this to the Anthem.

    Absolutely. After a 15 year break and coming from a titanium hard tail it will definitely be a change, but I am excited about getting back out there.

    Yes I did. Build went pretty smooth.

    This was my first bike build since 1998 when i left the shop i ran.
    - Overall the bike was well packaged and pretty much in tune.
    - Had no trouble with the front derailluer.
    - Brakes were rubbing but a quick centering solved that.
    - Adjusted the headset and set handlebars.
    - Rear derailuler fought me a little. Could not get it to shift consistently at both ends of the cassette. Low side would shift fine than the high side would miss shift and vice versa. I know in older equipment that was a sign of the derailluer hanger possibly being out of alignment. Dont have an alignent tool so i will keep playing with it and see. Limit screws were too tight as well.

    Pic after pulled right from box:
