    Nice post! I enjoy it because it is all so true. However a question you did not answer is when a newly bought bike breaks, and it is in the frame, and even the nice dudes at the bike store cant help you get a new bike, what should one do to get back and riding when all their money was spent on the first bike?

    I was trying to find a post to reply for getting into five (and i did) but i am not replying because of that:
    This is really one of the best post about bikes that i have found in all the weekend.
    It helped me a lot.

    Thank you!!

    The thing I like about this post, is that it could apply to anything, not just mountain biking.
    It's just one of those things in life where you realise that your aren't the centre of THE Universe, but you are the centre of YOUR Universe. If you do something because it makes you feel good, then it is good.
    I should have read this post a bit earlier, puts a good spin on the sport in general.
    Keep 'em coming guys.

    21 year old living in Arizona just getting into Mtbr. Use to ride a crf250 and a bmx bike, about 5 years ago.. and that's about the amount of experience I don't have. I love jiujitsu, and I love pit bulls

    Thanks for posting this! I'm 13 and new to mountain biking and I was worried about my new bike. Today I got a 29er hardtail bike as a Christmas and birthday present combined. It's a Rocky Mountain soul 29er and I was worried that it might not be that good. Although it felt like a great bike it was different than what I had before and I got really worried about weather or not it's a good bike. But i'm adjusting to the changes and because of this post I now feel good about the bike I have and i'll ride it like crazy from now on.

    Good advice all around.

    I've been out of the sport for many years (I still recall my John VS Ned debates with high school friends) and have recently started to ride again! Loving it!

    Vintage Cannondale MTB w/ 26" & 24" wheelset

    What do you all think about vintage Cannondales Mountain Bikes that have 26" front wheel and 24" rear??? Supposedly they claimed to be better traction uphill with the smaller rear wheel.

    Hi all,
    New to MTB's (and forums). Just bought a bike to start out. Came in a box to put togther. Think i have it done, apart from a couple leftover bits. Not sure what they are. Any ideas? piece with the red external thread also has an internal thread. I think the other little stoppers are covers from the cranks.
    Thanks

    Great list. .I've seen ragbrei up close....wow.
    I'm here because I need to ride due to a knee issue and I don't think the road genre is for me. I am going to buy a bike in march, I am sure I will get the bug.

    Real Noob

    Hi all. I have finally decided to learn how to ride a bike, in my 30s! Somehow missed that part of childhood. Have hung around this forum for the last few weeks to learn a thing or two. Some 'specs': male, 5'9", inseam 32", 210lb (reason to start biking?). First question right off the bat is where to get a bike, i.e. craigslist 3-6 year old bike or LBS entry models (trek 802 . .), or something like the Airborne sabre online + LBW assembly? Another is MTB vs Hybrid, considering that I am not yet a rider and so will not be able to decide based on likely use, though will def. not be commuting. Thanks
