I am brand new to MTB. A buddy just gave me his 2001 iDrive 2.0 and I am wondering if this is a quality bike or not. The reviews on this site make it sound pretty good. Also, what are some of the first things someone like me should know before I go out and hit the trails.
ride hard take risks
Im not a big fan of the I-drive but thats me. The bike has it's fallowing & the only major problem i know of is the link plate. As for what to do beffor a ride, check all fasteners, tire psi, derailleur adjustments might want to replace cables depending on age. If your not shure about your abilitys take it to the LBS.
