    I'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am SICK of having my bikes stolen from my backyard. You'd think hiding the damn thing behind two giant pine trees, completely out of site, in a relatively low crime area, would be enough.

    Hey everyone, I'm the newest new guy as of this post. I am getting back into mountain biking after taking a few (eight) years off from hitting the trails.

    1.) Born and raised in Grand Junction Co.
    2.) When I was big into riding before I had my bike for XC, and my other for DH.
    3.) Two complete bikes and one frame in which I plan to transfer the parts from one bike over to.
    4.) I got onto one of my bikes pretty much every day for 5 years, then, put them away... Getting back into it now.
    5.) I am a regular at Co AR15, and will probably be a regular here also now.

    New to MTBR

    As directed just checking in and saying high to everyone. I have been riding consistently for about 3 years, but have gotten a little more serious this year and thought this would be a good place to gain some information that in reality I know jack squat about.

    So hello, I'm from MN and I'm looking to pull the trigger on a decent bike for winter commuting.

    Hi there,

    I started following mtbr because there are a lot of bikers here form different countries. Lots of useful info etc.

    1.) I am from Sint Pancras, Netherlands
    2.) I ride for some years now, cross country mostly
    3.) HT MTD and a road bike
    4.) 20 years or so. Last couple of years a bit more miles/km's
    5.) mountainbike.nl/mountainbike.be/fiets.nl (Dutch and Belgium forums)

    I am also a runner. This used to be my main activity. I do 10km-21km runs and crosscountry running in the winterseason.
    I am looking for a new bike for 2012. Want to go full suspension and I am very enthousiastic about the 29ers. I am glad to see there are finally some 29er fullies coming tot Europe this and next year.

    Anyone visiting the Netherlands and wants some bike-advice (tracks,transportation,rental), please ask :-)

    Hey All,

    Most people call me Fitz and I live, work and play in Edmonton, AB
    1.) Where you are from? Originally Calgary AB lived in Edmonton most of my life though.
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Super Rookie, for now anyway
    3.) How many bikes you own? 1: One 2011 Cannondale SL 3
    4.) How long have you been riding? Approximately three hours as of right....now.
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? Do Facebook and Twitter count?

    That's pretty much me in a nutshell. I hope I can eventually become a more skill and serious mountain biker as well as valued member of the mountain bike community.

    Cheers,

    Hi from Jacksonville, FL

    Hello all!

    1.) Where you are from? Jacksonville, FL
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? beginner
    3.) How many bikes you own? 1
    4.) How long have you been riding? hard to really say. Since I was 4, not for years, never really seriously.
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? BushcraftUSA, HammockForums.net

    Just wanting to try riding out. Spent a little time on an old NEXT Walmart special. Garbage. However, I am not yet ready to invest a small fortune. So looking for a lower costing starter. Maybe a platform I can add/upgrade as I progress.

    "The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine." ~Christopher Morley~

    1.) Where you are from? Southern California, Inland Empire.
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Weekend Warrior/commuter.
    3.) How many bikes you own? 3! An all mountain, a hard tail, and a 24 inch bmx cruiser.
    4.) How long have you been riding? 16 years, mostly bmx. I made an awesome switch to the mountain. Nothing better then being out in the forest. May the Forest be with you.
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? None
    6.) What are your favorite places to ride? As far as local trails. I ride from 7 oaks on the Santa Ana River Trail, Hurkey Creek, and big bear/snow summit. Hulda Crooks is fun to. My favorite vacation trails are found in Mammoth, and BrianHead Utah.

    As for my user name I am a prop 215 medical cannabis patient. I have mild to severe chronic pain from a previous leg injury. I was hit by a car when I was a kid and I now have 4 screws and a rod in my right leg. The cannabis allows me to be active still. I can ride a bike once again. As before the pain would deter me from it. Its a safe natural alternative that I prefer over the toxic overly prescribed prescription drugs.

    My name is Gerry and I live in Billings, MT. I am mostly a roadie and ride a Scott CR1 which I truly enjoy. I also have an old Pro-Flex Reptile with new urethane springs that I started riding again recently and was starting to get hooked on trail riding. I was supposed to be in a novice 10 mile MTB race last Sunday, but on Friday while trail riding I fell into a boulder and fractured a rib, which along with the bruising to the muscles on the left side of my spine, has turned out to be truly painful. I didn't race on Sunday and have been home from work taking it easy ever since. I'm 66 and only work part-time so I can take time off when I want or need it. So, I've been researching HT 29ers and so far at the top of my list to try is the Scott Scale 29. I am pretty sure I won't ride the MTB as much as the road bike so I'm not really interested in a CF frame. I hang out at RBR some and this place looks quite familiar in terms of layout.

    1.) Petaluma , CA (north bay)
    2.) I've always said that the only reason I ride up a hill, is so I can ride down it, but there is some satisfaction to conquering a gnarly climb, so I guess that would fall under all mountain.
    3.) One bike, 2006 Marin Rocky Ridge hardtail. Built heavy, but I don't worry about it.
    4.) I've been riding off and on for around 15 years.
    5.) I'm on Pirate4x4 pretty regularly, but thats about it. Joined a few more, but never spent much time on any others.

    Newbie seeking help choosing Cannondale bike

    Hey everyone,
    After years of road riding, I want to get off the blacktop and try some trails.
    I live in Milwaukee, Wis., and will be riding in the Kettle Moraine area on single-track trails -- nothing too challenging to start with, but I want to advance my skills fairly quickly.
    In choosing a bike, my goal is to get something that won't be disappointing in a few years but that won't break my bank account.
    I am pretty much committed to Cannondale, through my local bike shop.
    That said, would the Flash 3 be a good choice?
    Would the Flash 2 or Flash 1 (aluminum) be that much better for fairly aggressive recreational riding? (I weigh 170 pounds and, at times, would push the bike pretty hard).
    Many thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
    Glad I found this forum.
    Ride safe,
    Redline09

    I'm so new I don't even have a bike yet, reading here at MTBR for 2 weeks now and just about ready to buy. I live way down in Baja, Mexico. I want a bike for aerobic excercise and weight loss (currently 6'-0" and 250#). Owned 26ers in the past, I have zeroed on a 29er hardtail as the right type of bike for my intended usage and physical size. I haven't ridden in 15 years should be fun!

    The special deals on the Marin Alpine Trail 29er and few others look great (I want to spend less than $1,000 to get started, and need shoes, clip ins, a few other goodies).

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? I'm riding 15-20 path miles a day and hit the dirt trails once a week for 20. Riding at least 6 days a week.
    3.) How many bikes you own? 3 mountain bikes that I ride. 2 old CroMo Treks (800 sport and 930) and a Giant Rainier.
    4.) How long have you been riding? Well, my first bike was a Schwinn Sting-ray in 1971. I rode a lot of BMX until 1979 (highschool).
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? I'd say I'm a little scatter brained. I frequent forums about rocketry, beer/wine making and COD (WAW and Black Ops)

    1) From Azusa, CA
    2) I consider my self a novice trail rider
    3) Currently 1 bike and just got it 1 day ago
    4) I've been riding for about 3 years borrowing my friend's bike
    5) mtbr is what I visit the most

    So as I mention above I just recently got my first (real) mountain bike and it's a 2011 Gaint Revel 2. I got it used but I thought it was a good deal, I paid $165 for it so now it's time to start upgrading.

    neewby checking in!

    Hi, my name is Will.
    Im from Black Mountain, North Carolina.
    I own one bike, its an Iron Horse PT-4 Cruiser.
    I have several serious injuries, from my time in the Navy. I got out out on disability and unfortunatly Im now disabled. Im going to try to ride my bike to get in shape as a type of therapy and a way to lose weight.
    I just started riding around the campground and I think this is gonna help me lose the weight I need to. I've lost about 100lbs on my diet, and I've hit the wall with diet alone. Im not able to do anything involving walking or standing or even lifting! This being disabled is for the birds! Ten years this Sept is how long Ive had these herniated disks! Six disks total; anyway I think that for road riding short distances Ill be ok. Well thats my info for now! Later Will.. P.S. Im 6' 4" and now 280lbs, instead of 382lbs!!!!!!! One day Ill be 200lbs and be happy!!

    Oh heres's my bike! I'll post a better pic soon. Im really liking the sun bicycles "key west" 22' frame, it sits me up-right and looks like my sons k2 bmx bike! My LBS said I can get a new 2011 model for 399.00. I hope that the bike is worth it and that it's strong enough for a big dude like me! Im researching it and I hope to find out more about durability and such.

    1.) My name is Ryan and I'm from Salem, Oregon

    2.) I consider myself a weekend (and weekday) warrior! I try to get out on a 15 mile ride at least 3-4 times a week, even if I have to do it alone.

    3.) Technically I own two bikes, but only one is worth riding. My 1997 GT Tequesta (all rigid!) gets me around town and the beginner trails just fine for now. I'll end up end spending way too much money upgrading it, but I just love 90's stuff so much that I don't even care. My other bike, a 90's women's Magna Glacier Point, is an emergency only bike, as in I'll likely be in the emergency room if I take it out for a ride.

    4.) I've have been riding a bike in some form since I was 6 years old. I had a BMX stage during my teen years. I Used to ride a 80's GT Performer frame my dad found buried in the sand at the beach. Sold it too a lucky kid for $15 last year at a garage sale. I bought a mountain bike about 8 years ago wanting to get into the sport, but it was stolen from me the day after I bought it. Needless to say I was a little discouraged from buying another bike. Only in the past few months have I gotten back into biking, and my calves are surprisingly stronger than ever.

    5.) I usually frequent the VRC forum to drool over the amazing bikes that I hope to someday own, and I visit Retrobike on occasion as well. Other than that I just try to take in as much helpful info as I can everywhere on the site!

    1.) Columbia, Maryland
    2.) 29er first and foremost... tack on to that, commuter & after this weekend XC racer
    3.) One, a 2011 Trek Cobia
    4.) I started riding back in 1983 with a $100 bike from Bradlees (remember them). Upgraded to a Univega in '85 then to a Cannondale in '88 trading the frame in on a '94 model. Stopped riding in early 2004 when I got a motorcycle. Started riding again in late Winter 2011 commuting to work for fitness and fun.
    5.) As far as Mountain Biking, here and Dirt Rag mostly.

    Guess i should do this: i'm Nicole, i'm 28. (wish you could post pics directly from hard drive!)
    1.) Where you are from? (as specific as you care to share)
    Southern NH. grew up in Northern MA
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? (ex: beginner, weekend warrior, all mtn/trail rider, XC racer, downhiller, singlespeeder, 29er rider, etc...)
    rode in the woods as a kid alot. then stopped for years. picked it back up in late 2008. i'd consider myself able to ride 80% of what they call "intermediate" trails. so...advanced Novice?
    3.) How many bikes you own?
    4. i have a mtb dual suspension, a Giant Dash with knobby tires that i can take offroad, a vintage columbia (mostly because it looks cool) and an old 90's mongoose mtb that i ride to the store and such.
    4.) How long have you been riding? 3 or so years as a kid, then picked back up in adulthood for about 3 seasons.5.) What forums do you frequent most?

    1.) Where you are from? San Diego, CA
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? (ex: beginner, weekend warrior, all mtn/trail rider, XC racer, downhiller, singlespeeder, 29er rider, etc...) Probably an Intermediate-Weekend Warrior Trail Rider who does a Dawn Patrol or Dusk ride during the week when I can.
    3.) How many bikes you own?
    I own 2: A 2005(bought in '06) Trek Fuel EX7 full-suspension & '92 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 hardtail (w/a blown Manitou 2 fork) mainly used to pull the kids in the trailer.
    4.) How long have you been riding? On and off since 1992 with a long 8 year break, but recently started going out 3-4 times a week since recovering from neck surgery...and loving it! I ride more conservatively now but would love to bomb a hill like the youngsters on their bikes that costs more than the bluebook value of my car!
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? This one, Jeepforum & singletrack
