I was going to get back into riding a couple years ago when I signed up here, but that didn't pan out. Been lurking agin for a few months and finally bit the bullet. Last time I really road was nearly 1.5 decades ago, and it's way past time to get back into shape.
I had some crap experiences with a couple local shops recently, one was pretty much due to me being a fatty and the other was probably because I wasn't interested in a fixie. But, I found a shop that was super cool and told me basically there are lots of bikes that will work for my girth, and I could have a hardtail and not a full rigid, which I thought I might have to get with my planned budget.
Now and I freakishly proud of my just picked before work tonight Rockhopper. Got a nice little spin out of it in the parking lot at work. Things I have noticed that have changes since my so fly neon green/white/pink Klein from way back in the day. Disc brakes are pretty damn cool and drivetrains/shocks are way smoother.
That is all for my excitement until I take pictures and post them, but I am trying to refrain from doing that.
