    Cool-blue Rhythm Two new Airborne bikes on the way!

    I just ordered a Goblin for me and a Guardian for my wife!

    I'm pretty fired up about it as this will be my first 29er and I'm coming from a pretty old school 2000 Schwinn Moab 2 that I bought very slightly used for $500 and a case of Fat Tire Amber Ale in 2001, so I am hoping this will be a really nice improvement. Zero complaints about the Moab. It has taken me to a ton of awesome places and on great rides, and been rock solid dependable while taking a fair amount of abuse. I converted it to a bull dozer several years ago with slime filled tubes and 2.3 WTBs, so I plan to leave it intact for my 14 yr old son to ride.


    Now for the wait; looking forward to it!

    You will NOT regret the 29er. 29er's are the bomb.

    After taking my wife to an event where Airborne was set up with some demo bikes it looks like I'll be buying her an Airborne bike this summer. Congrats!

    Congrats on the purchase. You will really like the Goblin and I'm sure your wife will dig the Guardian. I did a quick 4 mile loop on some local trails this morning with my Goblin and appreciate it's capabilities more and more after each ride.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, excited, but a little anxious because even though I know my way around all of our family's bikes maintenance wise, I've never actual taken apart or assembled a bike, have never used (except on a rental bike in Moab) disc brakes, don't know how to adjust them, and have rarely had the need to fine tune derallireurs. I'm sure it's one of those things that's easier to do than it sounds, plus part of the reason I decided on an Airborne (besides bang for the buck) was all the talk about the great customer service and tech support both through this forum and by calling Airborne directly. Looking forward to the experience and to the new bikes.

    You will probably be amused at how easy it is to put the bikes together. Adjustments are pretty easy, plus as posted above, there are plenty of videos and threads to help guide you if needed.

    And if you are coming off a bike without disc brakes, I'll bet you will repeatedly giggle with joy at the performance of the brakes on the new bikes. Hydro discs rock...I'll never go back to any other style brake!
