    Really enjoying the MTB community and the rides

    1.) Where you are from? NY originally... but reside in Las Vegas for 15 years

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Weekend warrior, & single track/cross country type of guy. Like to take it all in and stop for scenic pictures. Not really interested in serious downhill or highly technical stuff.

    3.) How many bikes you own? One... but would love to get more. Some bikes are works of art and I'd love to start collecting my favorites.

    4.) How long have you been riding? Grew up riding road bikes in and around Manhattan (and Central Park back in the 70s and early 80s). However, have only recently (last couple of years) discovered a love for Mountain Biking.

    5.) What forums do you frequent most? I like this site, but also visit Singletracks and have been following some very interesting bloggers (with a MTB bent) on Tumblr.

    Long time lurker, first time poster

    Well, I got into this forum in 2007 (4 years ago?!) But after getting my first bike, I stopped perusing the forums. But I have a newfound addiction for mountain biking and have been coming back here to learn some stuff and get inspired to get out and ride!

    Okay, now for the intro:
    1) I am from Russellville, Arkansas
    2) I consider myself a weekend warrior. I ride xc but would enjoy trying out All Mountain stuff.
    3) I only own 1 bike (Schwinn Rocket 88) but I really enjoy drooling over other bikes on the forum!
    4) I have been riding off-and-on for about three years, but have started riding weekly for about three months.
    5) I spend a lot of time on the singlespeed, commuter, and passion forums.

    Kind of strange ... Like the post above, I signed up in 2007 then pretty much went on my merry way, so a (very) belated hi!

    1.) Where you are from?
    Western Oregon

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself?
    Recreational road cyclist. We (Dh and I) ride on the trails now and then, not enough to get past the beginner stage.

    3.) How many bikes you own?
    4
    03 Specialized Allez Vita
    95 Spec. Rockhopper Ultra
    ? Miyata triplecross
    05 Santana Arriva

    4.) How long have you been riding?
    Been a casual rider since childhood. Started road cycling in 2003 - recreational (read slow). Take the mtn. bikes out now and then.

    5.) What forums do you frequent most? (either here or on other sites)
    I spend more time on blogs than forums but, I lurk on several bicycling and motorcycling forums. Bikeforums.net, Team Estrogen.

    We've been spending a little more time on trails, and figure it's about time to upgrade the mtn bikes. Came here looking for trail information and rediscovered the forums.

    Hello! I'm 23. I came across this forum while looking for advice on how to ride, where ride and what type of bike I should buy.

    1.) Where you are from?
    San Francisco but now live in p-TOWN AKA Pacifica, CA

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself?
    Beginner

    3.) How many bikes you own?
    1 late 1990's, "biblical diabolical beast,"and insanely fast Giant Iguana...plan to upgrade in the near future.

    4.) How long have you been riding?
    A few days

    5.) What forums do you frequent most?
    Expertfootball.com

    I learned to ride a bike without training wheels when I was 6 and rode until I was 10. When I was 10 I was racing on the side walk with my friend and lost control of my bike and ended up crashing into my uncles car. I left a huge dent on his car and the worse part is that I slammed my skin flute and ball sack on the bikes frame when I crashed. Neighbors and family came rushing to see if I was ok and that's when my older cousin who saw everything picked me up and pulled my pants down to see if anything was missing. My package had huge nasty bruise on the right side that ran down to my sack and when I went to take a leak it felt like razor blades where coming out my urethra. That day I vowed to never ride a bike. Thankfully my unit is fully functional but it slightly bends to the right when ready for action because of this accident. No joke.

    A few days ago I pulled out my dads old monster Giant Iguana bike from the garage and took it for a spin. I overcame my fear of bike riding mainly because I realized how unfit I've become and want to get into shape again for soccer. I rode on the Mori Point trails in p-town and had a blast so I plan on making this a hobby. I want to learn as much as possible and take it one step at a time.

    Introduction from Phoenix

    Hello! Chuck from Phoenix Started riding a bit last year with a 2010 Trek Wahoo...mainly on the streets. I just recently upgraded to the 2012 Trek Cobia. I love the upgrade! Shifting is so smooth, so is the ride!! I am trying to build my endurance now to tackle some of the trails at the nearby Dream Draw Phoenix Mountain Preserve Park. I wanted to find a forum to learn tips for newbies, learn about places to ride, bike maintenance, etc.

    I look forward to interacting with you all!

    So, I'm Tom
    I'm native to AZ though I spent a few years recently in the sticks of NE Indiana.
    Kind of a beginner...just been on about a 30 year layoff. OK, definitely a beginner again.
    2 bikes, Diamondbacks- see my sig. Eyeing a 3rd..."for my son"...
    I visit this site, F150 Online, and moderate at the End Times Round Table.

    I was a hard core BMX'er in the good old days when it was pure. Started in 1976 as a rag-tag neighborhood team. Pretty much ruled the rankings in my age group here in Phoenix with 1 other kid- he on the east side, me on the west. PXA was my home track.

    Loving the mountain bike though. I'm not in the best of shape yet, but I am getting there. Looking at a 3rd bike now so I can always ride with my 2 boys- my pals- and start hitting some trails.

    Hey all,
    I'm from Southern Indiana. I've been riding Kona mountainbikes and Trek road bikes since college, and have recently been shopping around for my first 29er build. My preferred rides are woodsy singletracks with a mix of climbs, streams, and quick switchbacks. I've loved 29ers when I've had a chance to try them, so I'm probably going to build one this winter.

    What's up! My name's John. I'm from Brooklyn, NY, and ride about every type of bike possible. I'm currently on a road racing/cyclocross kick, but I've raced track and mountain bikes as well. I own 7 bikes at the moment, although one needs to go. Anyone want a Dean 29er? Perhaps I'll try my hand at the classifieds here.

    In any case, great to be a part of the community!

    5.) What forums do you frequent most? Just got here, so I am not sure


    Hi Guys,

    I am Vince and I'm 56 and a retired commercial diver and engineer and now part time bike mechanic, but just for fun.

    Last year I built a road bike on a Lynskey Sportive Ti frame with a full Dura Ace group and my Buddy and I built the wheels at the shop we work at which was a cool job.

    He also got me into riding a 29'er and I ended up with a Giant XTC1 hardtail, which is great fun. It's like driving a Humvee.

    I really enjoy both types of riding. I also really enjoy working in the bike shop and helping people out when they are buying a new bike or when they have a problem with their existing bike.

    Regards, Vince

    I'm from Oregon
    Beginner
    Zero
    Not in a long time
    Just getting started but looks like I'll be a Clydesdale!

    Yello all

    I'm a big boy and looking to find some good info so I can go riding.....
    and not have to worry if the Rims can handle the beating! So any info
    would be appreciated.

    I'm 37 330LBS. I'll be pulling my boys to the park and street riding at first but when we go camping with friends they go riding in the mountains I want my bike to be able to handle that to. If that means 2 bikes so be it. I love quading with my family.

    Take Care all!!

    Smile Hello from El Paso

    1.) Where you are from? (as specific as you care to share)
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? (ex: beginner, weekend warrior, all mtn/trail rider, XC racer, downhiller, singlespeeder, 29er rider, etc...)
    3.) How many bikes you own?
    4.) How long have you been riding?
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? (either here or on other sites)

    1. Hello my name is Jordan I'm from El Paso, Texas.
    2. I am definitely a beginner. I'm hoping to begin commuting around town soon, I just bought an older model Specialized Hard Rock at a garage sale for 10 dollars. Hoping to make it a project bike.
    3. Never owned a serious bike , just throw away's from wal-mart.
    4. I've rode bikes since I was young, but just beginning to make a serious commitment to it.
    5. ?

    1.) Living in San Piero a Grado, Italy
    2.) no specific type, training for IronBike
    3.) 1
    4.) That depends. I've always had a bike since I can remember, but I've only started training in the last two weeks.
    5.) NC4x4.com, ChargerForum.com and Reddit.com(not a forum, but better).

    I hadn't ridden a bike in a while, when we moved to Italy. While waiting for our car to arrive, I stopped by a sporting goods store in Livorno and bought a previous year model Trek 4400. Since then I've been hooked. Recently I've started researching IronBike and hope to compete in 2012.

    I have a billion questions and will most likely be hanging out in the endurance section.

    Peace.

    Coming over to the dark (dirty) side

    Long time roadie...first time caller.

    Just bought my first Mountain Bike after years of road only riding. Planning on hitting the trails with some roadie friends who ride the trails as well.

    My first ride is a second hand Iron Horse Warrior Pro. A little heavy I'm told....and WAAAAY heavier than my 17lb roadbike....but wicked cool all the same.

    Psyched to try this whole thing out! I've been playing around solo on local fireroads and dirt roads...not much singletrack around here...at least not that I know of. I'm really looking forward to learning the skills!

    1.) Where you are from? Southeastern Connecticut
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Experienced Road Cyclist - Total Mnt Bike newbie
    3.) How many bikes you own? 2 - 1 road/1 MB
    4.) How long have you been riding? Road - 12 years consistantly. MB...just starting.
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? Roadbike Review...haven;t posted much lately though.

    Where you are from?
    Finger Lakes region of NYS

    What kind of rider do you consider yourself?
    Beginner and a timid one at that

    How many bikes you own?
    Two. One road bike and one hardtail.

    How long have you been riding?
    Haven't ridden since I was a wee lass. Just started up again this past spring. My intention at first was to just do road riding, but I got invited to go mountain biking with some friends one weekend...and then another and then another. Long story short, 4 months later I bought my first mountain bike

    What forums do you frequent most?
    I'm so new to this that I'm exploring everything and trying to learn everything.

    Hello MTBR Jim Scales and I am in beautiful SE Kansas where we more old coal pits from surface mining than you shake a stick at...which is very nice for riding!
    Been riding for a while but never had a passion for it until this year, when I chnaged jobs and have more time for riding
    I am now a die hard trail rider and with the old strip pits we have around here, that can be challenging as all get out
    I have 2 bikes, 1- an old beater, 2 Trek 2012 Wahoo

    Newbie from UK

    Well, I've been dropping by here for a few months trying to figure out the world of MTB which has strangely drawn me in. So I though I'd check in and say hello.

    It all started when I needed to teach my youngster to ride, so I dusted off my old Rockhopper and headed off to our local woods in Cheshire, UK. I've now ridden all the family friendly trails but my attention is always being drawn to those tight gnarly looking trails that shoot off through the woods.

    I'm no stranger to riding rough tracks, steep slopes with loose surfaces and fast gravel fireroads but for the last 10 years its all been on motorised steeds. I can handle an Enduro (moto)bike to a reasonable standard but lately I seem to have lost the moto mojo..

    So - I've now sold the motorbike and now have funds to spend on a something special to replace my old '04 Rockhopper.

    Anyway, evening' all.

    Paul

    Hello all Jack here from Caledon Ontario, I have been away from Mountain bikes for 5 years now due to a major heart attack. I started ridding back in 1990 during the days of rigid frames and forks. I have a niner single speed, looking to add a full suspension A M soon. Great site hope to make some good friends

    Hi there, I'm Liz from Anchorage, AK. I use my one Gary Fisher hardtail mountain bike for riding on single track and double track dirt trails, commuting, running errands and just about everything else! I've been riding it steadily for about two years now, and am seriously considering getting a snow bike to keep it company this winter.

    Hey,

    New guy here...never did any mountain biking before but I figure this is the time to learn and buy a bike so I can start once the weather starts to warm up. Of course, now I'm going to have this new toy sitting in my basement that I can't use for the next 6 months or so which should be plenty frustrating but I'm still looking forward to it.

    Will probably just be lurking until the spring, learning as much as I can from reading but I will probably be an avid poster once I get going.

    Hello all. Name's Jeremy.
    From Madison WI.
    Beginner to MTB pretty much, but grew up loving/riding bikes in general. Did a little BMX dirt jumping in HS.
    I've got a few different kinds of bikes, but my MTB is a cobbled together thing that's finally getting respectable after I get the fork I'm about to buy. It's an OK aluminum frame with a mix of Deore LX, XTR, Truvativ cranks, and soon to be Marzocchi DJ2 fork.
    I'll return to put up a picture in a couple weeks after I get my new fork. I don't have any pics as of now.

    Hello all. My name is Jared. I am currently residing in the Anchorage, Alaska area. Like most of you, I have been riding since I was a kid, but I didn't really get introduced to any real trail riding until around 2001. What can I say, I grew up in rural Missouri in the 90's, not exactly the Mecca of Mountain Biking. Currently I am focused on nuturing my wife and three boys along in the love of riding. I have never owned a bike nearly as nice as I would like, but I'm getting there. currently I ride a pretty cheap Novara 29er hard-tail, but I have a blast. I entered a few small XC races up here in Alaska this year and had a great time. I am looking to move into the FS 29er market. At 5'11" and 165 lbs I know I dont "need" a 29er, but I am pretty well sold on the big wheels. I have three bikes in mind, but I am open to suggestions; Niner W.F.O 9, Intenser Tracer 29, or Lenz Lunchbox. The later two being made in the USA makes them all the more appealing. I'd be interested to hear what suggestions are out there. I have looked at several bikes, but most of my research has been online. I'd love to get some more time in the saddle.

    Smile Got my new bike ...

    After doing a bunch of research I settled on a 2011 Cannondale Scalpel 2. It's proving interesting to get used to but I'm getting back into racing and decided to head more for light weight than long travel (like I'm used to).

    It's without a doubt the best climbing bike I've ever ridden and the SRAM 2x10 is probably the best idea in MTB innovation since they started making circular wheels, in my opinion.

    :-)

    Your English is better than some people who are from English-speaking countries. :-)

    Y'oh, you pedal peeps!

    Just a hello from the Great Pacific Northwest! Westside PDX to be exact.

    Been riding for a long time, did the 1st Cycle Oregon Double Century on a MTB... yes, some years go. Traded in the MTB for a 3 wheel recumbent 5 years ago. Enjoy a lot of local sububrian and rural routes and the bounty of trails in the region. So far, the trails of Coeur d' Alene impress me the most.

    I really enjoy night rides and find myself with yet another hobby... custom lighting solutions for seeing and being seen on bicycles. I find this to be a technical challenge as well as a psych challenge. I find it interesting how fixated many cyclists are to lighting solutions. Probably an innate survival instinct

    I am an active member on the BentriderOnline forum as LayZeeD and frequent several flashlight forums and various bike forums. Although I've received many emails from MTBR, I never realized there was a very active forum here. I hope to learn and hopefully give back from the good peeps of this forum as well.

    Keep Ridin'

    Greeting!

    Hi, I have been living and trail riding in Park City UT since the summer of 1987. Long before front suspension, helmets, SPD's and the Mountain Trails Foundation! Most of us ski bums rode $400 Specialized "Rock Hoppers" from Brock & Charlies store White Pine on Main Street. Stumpjumpers and Cannondales were for the Elite!

    Riding a new Ibis Mojo HD this season as I could not wait any longer for the Turner RFX! Still trying to dial it in for climbing semi steep rocky single track. The RP23 just feels like S***. Trying a friends XFusion this week.

    Hello from S Tx. I"ve been lurking for a while, pulling off info as needed and decided to join. I've been riding for about 3 or so years now on my Marin Hawk Hill. I've enjoyed riding it but decided I wanted another bike so, I checked around and my local Sun & Ski had the Hawk Hill on sale for what I think was a good price so I bought it. It's being delivered and setup on Tuesday.
    Happy Trails....

    Old newbie checking in from Los Angeles. I used to have an account here under Endomaster, real name is Agustin, but I guess it became inactive after some time. I'm 39, used to ride the Fullerton Loop in Fullerton, CA regularly as well as some of the south OC trails every once in a while. In any case, I'm back, along with a few more pounds. I rode a Yeti 575 which I am currently tearing down to relube all joints and replace things like cabling and chain.
