    I'm from Michigan. I got into mountain biking through friends I met at school.

    I'm riding a 2001 K2 Attack. It's pretty worn out, but being a broke college student, I hope to ride it until I can afford something better.

    Have a good ride.

    Whew... you guys know how to make someone work just to introduce themselves!

    1.) Where you are from?
    Currently stationed at MCRD Parris Island with the Marine Corps in Beaufort, SC!

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself?
    A very inexperienced one who desperately wants to become better. Typically I ride locally which is singletracks and mostly flat terrain. Heading up to NC to ride the Pirahna pit this weekend though!

    3.) How many bikes you own?
    Just one... my baby

    4.) How long have you been riding?
    Three months... Started off on a Giant Revel 2 thinking Mountain Biking sounded like a great time but had no idea how quickly I'd want to upgrade. Literally had my Revel for 2.5 months and had to sell it because I wanted 29er and disc brakes. Picked up my new ride today; 2012 Giant Talon 29er

    5.) What forums do you frequent most?
    This one.

    PICS!

    Newbie here

    First post here, just signed up, Living in Midwest, Indiana, I guess you could call me a weekend warrior. I have 3 bikes but my pride and joy is my new (old) Turner 5 Spot. It is my first FS bike coming from a Kona Hoss Hardtail it is quite a change. I signed up because I was looking for info on the Turners and you can't do a search unless you are a member. I race XC in the Dino series here in Indiana in the Clydesdale class so it is mostly for the fun of it. We have some great trails here in Indiana but someday would love to make out to the West coast and do some riding. Been riding Mountain bikes for about 20 yrs, started out on a green Fuji Discovery that I still have and kick around on in the street with the wife and make runs to the grocery with when I attach my BOB trailer to it. Looking forward to learning more here as I am my own mechanic and do all my own work.

    Greetings

    Hey all,
    Just started using this forum as a resource as I decided to start fixing my bike myself. I basically know very little about bike and their parts, but I'm extremely handy and mechanically inclined.
    As of now I am attempting to replace my bottom bracket. Yup, jumping right in with both feet.

    Old lady

    Hi all,

    Nice to be here...

    Im a never grown up 37 year old woman living in the foothills of the sierra nevada in spain. Many moons ago I was an avid BMX girl, racing most weekends, until my Mum took me out of the sport deeming it too dangerous (worries about my poor wrists and knees).

    But for many years I have yearned to get back into the saddle and have started to do so with my son who is 14, but hes not that interested in it to be honest.

    Anyway, I have an old cheap hardtail claud butler stone river at the moment, and wanted to pass that on to my son and get something that I could ride. The trails here are quite steep and really rocky and on claud I keep loosing grip on the rear tyre, going downhill is ok but the same happens there too...

    I have no cash flow at the mo and have been looking at some cheap replacements and wanted some advice

    which bike should I choose?

    I have been look at a Gotty Via hardtail and a Nordic fs bike .. both a similar price but which one should I go for?

    really a story of hardtail v fs..

    I would love some advice.. so please help me out here!!!

    Ta

    Vicky

    Laugh all you want, I just bought an old rigid GT Pantera for $45. I used to have one of these growing up and loved it. Figured I'd upgrade some parts and ride the hell out of it until I can afford something nice. Just getting back into riding now that I am divorced!

    1.) Where you are from?
    The Hague, the Netherlands. Not many mountains here but you can ride everywhere!

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself?
    With growing up kids and a busy job I prosper every moment I am able to ride my bike. Those are rare moments I hardly have time for, so usually I ride out of my house into the dunes (I live near the sea) or on one of the local mountainbike tracks here in the western part of the Netherlands.

    3.) How many bikes you own?
    One old KHS hardtail mountainbike, a Rocky Mountain Blizzard that is to be completed, and two typical Dutch city bikes.

    4.) How long have you been riding?
    Since 1990, with some breaks.

    5.) What forums do you frequent most?
    This one and a local Dutch forum: mountainbike.nl

    Hi everybody!

    Hi everybody!

    1.) Where you are from? (as specific as you care to share)

    I live in Germany/Europe and my wife and me are looking forward to do some cycling in the U.S.

    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? (ex: beginner, weekend warrior, all mtn/trail rider, XC racer, downhiller, singlespeeder, 29er rider, etc...)

    We did quite a lot of self supported rides in different countries such as Turkey, India, Oman, Canada and different european countries

    3.) How many bikes you own?

    My wife and me in total have 8 bikes (road bikes, MTBs, bikes for the every day use and so on...)

    4.) How long have you been riding?

    Since we met 13 years ago we do rides almost every summer vacation in different countries

    5.) What forums do you frequent most? (either here or on other sites)

    I just registered to this forum today because we are planning a biketrip to the Northwest of the U.S.

    We thought of following the ACAs Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route

    We fly into Vancouver, B.C. and will spend 5 weeks on our bikes. We were thinking of not just following the route above (which is just on paved roads). Instead it would be nice, to have some offroad sections on the way. Because we don't have a car we don't want to make any loops (without a car there is no need to go back to the carpark, ey?) but instead go from A to B on some nice trails in the area.

    Any help ist very welcome!
