Hey guys thought I'd use this as sort of an intro for myself.
After lurking around on here for a few days I picked up a new bike yesterday. Its a 2007 Diamondback Response XE (disc brake model).
Frame is in good shape but it needed a new rear tube and majorly needs a tune up but i picked it up for only $25. Figured a pretty darned good deal for a starter bike for me.
Not my first mountain bike but the first one I'll be using for some serious trails. I have a Trek 820 back home in Washington (now living in Pittsburgh) but I just didnt think it would be worth it to ship out here.
A little bit about me... I turn 22 on Friday and I'm a manager for Cutco right now. Been working here for about 4 years. Last year I moved to Pittsburgh, PA from Vancouver, WA. Not the biggest fan of Pittsburgh so far but learning to like it by forcing myself to get out
Mainly looking to get in to mt biking as a form of exercise. Since taking a promotion at work I've been working so damn much its hard to do be motivated to go to the gym but as a kid I always loved biking so I figured this would be something good to get back into.
Not super familiar with bikes, more of a car guy myself. I have 2 cars a 2003 Lincoln LS V8 and a 1994 Subaru Legacy Turbo (fully built engine, STi drivetrain, coilovers all around etc).
Annd I have 3 dogs. One is a Siberian Husky who I would eventually like to learn how to bike jour with.
So yea, just wanted to say Hi and I'll post some pics of the bike once I get home.
Oh and any suggestions on good trails around Pittsburgh?
