    Thank you for the post and reminder that in the end, all that matters is getting out there and riding. The only person that can limit how much fun you have.....is you. I'm going to print this out and post it at every bike shop I frequent.

    Seems to be the place to get your posts up to 10 to bypass that stupid rule of no links before 10 posts!
    Otherwise great post by the OP!

    5 comments to post a new thread? Jeeze. I have just aquired my first real XC bike. It's an older Jamis Eureka (Yellow) with Velocity Deep V wheelset, thudbuster seat, aftermarket bars, etc. I had a few question for a thread with pictures so I'll just ask them now.

    How are these bikes?

    What does a Jamis Eureka typically costs?

    Did they come stock Shamino hubs, gear shifter, and rear rim brakes?

    This kinda thing has been my motto as ive been building up my first bike starting with a second hand dirtbag frame and going from there with a bunch of other second hand parts. Not the prettiest thing but it works pretty well so far.

    I was gearing up for a "NOOBS! How dare you be new to the sport of riding" post when I clicked.

    Very pleasantly surprised. Those were some sound words of wisdom and really drive home the idea that it's more about getting out there and having fun that obsessing over what you're riding when you do it.

    Thanks for that post.

    Hey everyone! I am a noob. I want to get new pedals for my trek 2012 wahoo. But I don't know if the diameter of the pedal bolt is universal or is specific for each bike? I read in another thread not to get clipless until I have a basic understanding of bike riding, hich by the way is a lot different than bmx riding when I was twelve. Can anyone help me out?

    I tried clip-ins for a few months before deciding it wasn't for me. For cross-country, it's more efficient, but clipping in and out while cornering hard with foot out/stopping and starting/crashing and whatnot became annoying and potentially dangerous for me.

    Thanks invictarocks, I discovered that the other day around a hard corner between a rock and a cactus. I was very glad I could get that foot down! It was a big cactus!

    I just got the egg beater pedals and am wondering if I may have the same problem.

    New to the forum, but I came in here to post something exactly like this after being frustrated by bike shop guys and trail riders in the latest expensive gear.
