    Hello from NW GA. Completely new to bike forums, and completely ignorant of a great many things I should probably know. Bear with me. I'll probably have more questions than answers.

    1.) Where you are from? NW GA
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Beginner
    3.) How many bikes you own? 3, if you count my road bike
    4.) How long have you been riding? Since the 70s - before the BMX craze hit. I took a long hiatus, and am back riding again.
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? This is the first forum I've joined in years. After spending time modding a golf forum, I needed a break from the whole forum scene. Too many jerks, and life's too short.

    Hey There

    Hi

    Live in Raleigh, NC
    Nowadays I'm considered an Intermediate (Insurance/Work)
    Own a Santa Cruz Tallboy, Trek Mamba, Specialized Cross Trail which I'm trying to sell
    Since the 80's first bike was a Diamond Back Apex, started MTB in AZ
    Club700XX-ATV, THOG-Biking

    As you can see, been riding for a long time and mainly MTB since I can't stand riding on regular roads (too many idiots on the phone or texting)

    Raleigh has allot of MTB nearby so I purchase the Tallboy for that reason.

    hi im justin, i am from south carolina, definitely a beginner to adult mountain bike riding. I havent bought a bike yet bc I dont know the reputations of the companies yet but i have narrowed it down to a Scott Genius, Devinci Atlas, Specialized Camber, Niner Rip, or Lapierre XR. I want something that is good at everything bc im not sure what type of riding i want to do yet, plus i want to be able to sale it without losing a ton of money if I decide to sale it. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    4.) How long have you been riding? From 1987

    Hi Folks, Merry Christmas,

    I'm from Reading, Berkshire, UK, and I guess I'm a weekend warrior - looking forward to the lighter nights to ride more frequently. I'm motivated by fitness (my current lack of), losing weight, and the countryside surrounding my home.

    I'm on my 4th bike as an adult, I think I also went through 4 bikes growing up - plus the tricycle!!

    I have a very non standard Kona Smoke 29er - the only original thing being the frame, forks, bar & stem - the latter two things being what the LBS tell me to change to make the bike great!!

    I've been riding on and off my whole life, culminating in 2008 with a cycle down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Then the new girlfriend arrived, not at all into cycling, but we became equipped with new wheels and now enjoy picnics and trips to nearby towns in summer.

    Earlier this year I did the London to Brighton night ride, and now with 6 months to go before a wedding I'm back on the bike and looking to ride regularly to get toned and shed the excess pounds.

    I've been reviewing these forums for ages - trying to get to 10 posts so I can submit a link to a photo of my ride!! I guess the beginner & 29er forums get most of my time as well as the reviews which are invaluable, and I hope to add to in due course.

    I'm new

    Hello all,
    I'm Todd and I am new here as of a few minutes ago. I just got back into mountain biking and i'm excited to be riding again. I'm 42 and just purchased a Specialized Rockhopper Pro (2013 model) all black with Shimano Deore XT PD-M785 Pedals on it. It is a nice looking bike. However I really need to get my endurance built up so I can get into more rugged terrain. The hills here in Austin are tough but should get me into shape within a month, (give or take). I think winter temperatures will be the deciding factor with how long it actually takes. I'm getting over having a sore buttox from the saddle since I have not rode a bike in several years. My previous bike was the Specialized Ground control FSR "Y" frame bike. I recently sold it, it was 17 years old. I bought the Specialized GB RBX Shorts, these help a lot and are very comfortable. Anyway, glad to be here....I'll be reading more topics daily.

    Todd

    Just anothern FNG checking in

    Hey, all! Just another FNG checking in...so, in keeping with the rules of the forum, here's the scoop on me:

    Not really new to mountain biking as I was pretty deep into it in the late '90s when I was in the military. Rode a Cignal Zanzibar hard-tail and loved it, and it got even better when my son got into it and rode with me! This was in Hampton, Virginia and the trails we rode weren't "official" trails in that they weren't kept up by any organization - a group of MTBRs got together and made the trails, then performed upkeep maintenance on them as needed. All I know is we had a blast and I was in the best shape of my life!

    Got out of it when I retired from the service and moved up North, and after a 14 year absence my wife and I are now getting back into it. This is her first foray into the MTBR world, and she's as excited about it as I am! She has a Trek 6200 and I have a Trek 3700 that we just bought two weeks ago, and so far neither of us has had a chance to ride due to work schedules, the holiday, and now the weather...when we finally do get a chance to ride we're heading to Harbison State Park which has the best trails in the Columbia, SC area.

    Bikes sure have come a loooong way since I rode last, let me tell you! VERY excited about getting back into it!

    New member from Wisconsin Milwaukee area

    Hello all, I'm a 34 year old male From the Milwaukee area. I've been riding actively since 1998. My favorite sport was/is adventure racing however it seems that they are disappearing.

    I consider myself an intermediate rider and love technical trails and cross country.

    As far as bikes, I have a Specialize Stump Jumper Comp, and a Stump jumper FSR Pro. I don't think i'll every ride something different, I love them.

    The past couple years I've taken a break for family reasons, but I'm looking to get back into the swing of things and looking for a partner to ride with in Wisconsin as well travel to other states in search of more trails.

    Since Adventure racing appears to be disappearing I've had an interest in the extreme obstacle courses. Even though it has not to do with mountain biking it's still extreme and looking for people to do that with as well. I'm also a kayaker and camper/backpacker. My profession is Law Enforcement and Loss Prevention (yes, I have two jobs)

    Hello. I am a newbie. I'm 33 from Kingston, NY I just bought a rode once genesis 29 from a guy at my job for $50. I am fat and outta shape and plan to use this to get back in shape. When I was a kid I raced bmx then switched to motocross. Have broken my back in 4 places my sternum in half had a knee and shoulder replacement. Hence the reason for my plumpness. Lol not an excuse I know. But I have always been interested in mountain biking through the woods which is my favorite place to be..So having said that hello.. I did some research on the bike I know it's not the best but the price is good and I plan to put better parts on it as the old one break. I am 6'2 and 260lbs. Well I think that's everything.

    Hello ya'll

    I live in NorCal, love riding my bike. Rode many miles atop my elf pro as a youth and have now found XC I mainly ride Sonoma County but venture into Marin on occasion. I ride a Niner RDO, Kona Tanuki and OCR C2 for those frigid road rides on crisp winter days. I look forward to plundering the vaults of this seemingly endless supply of great humor, pics and troubleshooting greatness. I will reciprocate if I have knowledge of what's the haps... Take care, and Pedal Damn It !

    Newbie intro

    Hi my name is Don and I live in Central Florida. I mainly ride Road Bikes, Townies and sometimes Cyclocross but am new to Mountain bikes.

    I have about 50 vintage road and Town bikes plus two Cannondale Mountain bikes.

    Cannondale Mountain Bikes:

    1984 w/ 26" front & 24" rear wheelset

    1996 M-500

    The 1984 is quite interesting as it was their first year and different wheel sizing (rims are really neat Pro class Series III Super Hard Anondized)

    Hi there, my name is Diana, and I reside in beautiful Bragg Creek Alberta, in Kananaskis country. I live next to some of the best XC biking trails in Alberta, Canada.

    I am new to biking, since I sustained some injuries to my achilles tendons and cannot hike and do the things I normally used to do. I just started riding mountain bikes this last July. I own a Rocky mountain trailhead, which is not a good bike for out here. It was great on hills, but half killed me on the downhill parts. I used it all summer, and have been looking for a full suspension bike since the fall.

    I have found two candidates now, a 2010 Giant Anthem X4 and a Scott Spark Contessa. This is what brought me here, since I am trying to determine which bike is better. I am able to get them for the same price. I have no knowledge of components and all the important things I need to know about a bike. I now see bikes are not a means of transportation and there is so much stuff to read about, and the learning curve is a slow and sharp one.

    Thanks for reading, now I am back to reading on the forums

    Newbie..lets get these min req. out of the way!

    Hi All,
    My current ride is a 03 SantaCruz Superlight with Thompson hardware, XT drive-train and Avid V-Brakes (yes, still running V's). I am American, but reside in the Netherlands. I am an all-mountain rider that enjoys riding very technical trails..chose the SL back in the day because of: Simplicity, ride characteristics (hard-tail with a little cushioning).
    Cheers,
    JAB63

    Greetings from the Netherlands

    Hi,
    My name is Andrew and I live in the Netherlands. I ride mostly cross-country on my Trek EX-8.
    I maintain a website about mountain biking where I live and I have just completely revamped it to make it look more modern. I cannot post a link in this text as I am new to the forum, but you can see the link in my signature.

    Hello, my name is Luis, I'm from Fredericton, NB, Canada. My answers are below...

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? I'm mainly a XC trail rider, and I love tight, technical singletrack, grueling technical climbs and steep technical descents. This summer of 2012 I have been riding single speed XC bikes for the first time ever and am really digging the experience!

    3.) How many bikes you own? 4: 1 Brodie Catalyst SS XC, 1 Spot Rocker SS XC w/ Gates Belt Drive; a 1995 Rocky Mountain Blizzard (currently rebuilding) and an old Peugeot roadie I converted to SS.

    4.) How long have you been riding? My whole life, but mountain biking since 1992.

    5.) What forums do you frequent most? (either here or on other sites): This one and Pinkbike.
