    First bike along with my first ride!

    Hey everyone!

    So after visiting my LBS and a fair amount of research I decided that my first bike would be the 'Giant Trance 29er 1'... and let me tell ya.. It is a lot of bike lol.. I love it!

    I picked it up today and I immediately went for my first ride ... and then it hit me.. I SUCK at mountain biking.. I mean.. im sooo bad.. when I'm trying to climb over rocks n roots my pedals are getting hit and my brand new baby is taking a beating.. I cannot wait to go back out and get better.

    just want to say thanks everybody for getting my hooked to biking!
