    Just got my frist true mnt bike

    Hello I am brand new to Mountain biking.. I did a little in high school but never invested in getting my own bike or truly got into it.
    But this last week my tax return came in and I thought I deserved to get myself a gift.

    So today I finally broke and picked up a Specialized Rock Hopper. I took it for a 2 hour ride on some trails in the training area of Fort Hood where I am stationed and immediately knew I had made the right choice to start riding again and to take it a bit more serious.

    Tomorrow I plan to pick up some new tires cause the stock tires the bike came with have very little traction as well as some clip-less peddles / shoes. And after just a 2 hour ride I already realize I need some good riding shorts with some pads.

    So here I am taking in the wealth of information doing my best to be a sponge and soak it all in.

    Rockhoppers are great bikes. My son rides one, and I've a Rockhopper frame that I hope to build up for myself before winter hits. Glad you're enjoying yours.

    Ah yes, welcome to the fold. Can't think of a better way to part with that economic stimulus check myself.
    Ever been to Mountain Bike Tales Digital Magazine? Now if only the print rags would catch on!
