    So i've only been here 3 or 4 weeks. A newb to mtbing but not too forums. Here's my first complaint.

    When starting a thread you dont need to say "new to mountain biking" "Newb question" etc....just give us a snippet of your post or question topic in the title. We know you are a newb....that's what the forum is for. I think this forum is great because everyone understands a million people will come in and ask what type of bike they should get etc....that's ok. But try and give us something specific in the thread title

    Interesting

    I do find this post interesting; however, I am seeking specific information on parts (forks and disc breaks) to make my first bicycle purchase economical.

    This is true. Just got done helping a friend pick out a bike so he could get into riding now that I'm getting back in the saddle after 10 years of sporadic riding. I basically told him the same thing. Pick whatever you like to ride and ride it. I did a race in Newport, Oregon in the late 90's and the course was a slimy, clay filled mess. Kid that was part of the local cycling club raced it on a 10 speed road bike. His family had no money, the bike was donated, and he finished on the run next to his bike with two flats and about 30 minutes behind a lot of the group in his class. I couldn't help but join his club in the applause as he crossed the finish line with a giant smile on his face! I was more impressed riding with that kid than a lot of the pros that were there with their rolling bike shops.

    Nice story, and just goes to show you that it aint the bike that makes the rider cross the finish line, but the rider that make the bike cross the line.

    As a complete noob to MTB, this was actually pretty useful... I think?

    As a noob, this made me laugh, but I thought something called "Beginners Corner" was probably a good place to ask questions. If you don't want to help noobs out, then don't. Either way, there's no need to treat noobs like we're idiots please. We're just trying to learn. Just remember everyone was a noob once.

    Hey there, new to the forums. Figured I'd just post here to get the "five posts" thing over with.
    I live in Central CA, I have a 2011 Norco Jubei 29er which I'm loving. Been riding about 15-20 miles 3 or 4 times a week.

    Hah, nice. Hopefully these rules are all taken to heart. We can't all spend tons of money on the sport, but we can all find passion in what we do.

    Help the shiny newb!

    Hopefully you guys can help me out! I'm brand new, haven't ridden trails since I was 12!!! I want to get back into shape and well...I need some help with a bike my parents gave me. I wanted to figure out if it was actually made in the USA and worth fixing up to use to get into shape. My father is huge into riding owned many bikes and he gave me his Scott Laredo that he bought back in the 90's it says Designed and tested in Sun Valley. Does that mean it was actually made in the USA? Also, do you guys think it's worth just putting the money into it to repair it since I want a good quality bike that won't break the bank? I've noticed that if you want something NOT made in China you have to have some big bucks and right now as a student that is not realistic!

    Not your post and I don't think that your bike was made in the USA because my mongoose says designed in the USA and made in china. I would not repair it cause you can by a good bike new for almost the same as you would pay for it if you repaired it. If you are getting back into riding just buy a really good mongoose for now and the bike I have is a aluminium frame so it's really good and light.
