    1) My name is Mark, I'm in Sunrise, FL with my fiancÚ Amy, son Caiden, and a bun in the oven!
    2) I am a weekend warrior/beginner, fiancÚ is a beginner, son is too young and rides a trailer (not on trails tho!)
    3) 2 bikes, my 2011 trek/fisher wahoo, fiancÚ's 2011 trek skye s
    4) I used to ride as cross training for track/cross country from 1999-2000, fell out after college, career (still working on lol, in air traffic control school now, and child) but getting back in for the last 2 months...
    5) mostly on general, beginners, and trek forums, if I move up north to NH I'll frequent the downhill forum to learn what I can, really interested in downhill/freeride, but south FL is pretty flat.

    Great forum, I've learned a lot, and appreciate the feedback i get, and try to learn as much as I can from the knowledgable people on board to excite the passion of mountain biking!

    1.) James from the Austin, TX area
    2.) I admit I'm not up on the subtle differences in XC vs. trail vs. all mountain, I just ride whatever trails I can as often as I can. Did my first race in about 18yrs this spring
    3.) Right now just 2 - 97 Homegrown ht and C-dale R500 for the road
    4.) Started riding around 1990 but took a number of years off after my kids were born
    5.) Too new to have any favorites yet

    Cheers all

    Hi. My name is Mark.

    1.) South-central Texas
    2.) Love my singlespeed commuter bike (Soho S). Love my XC FS even more. I can't wait until they have a baby. I think I'm going to name it "Rig".
    3.) Three bikes so far. Ye Olde GF Kai Tai, Trek Fuel EX8, Trek Soho S.
    4.) Riding MTBs since '95 or so... skipped some years between. In retrospect that was a really dumb *ss thing to do. Get out there and riiiiide.
    5.) I frequent this forum as of yesterday. Also electro-music.com... (techno/ambient/etc music making.) I'm more partial to listservs, but this bbs is really cool for the pics.

    Hello All

    Just checkin in as a newbie, although my main email would not work saying that I was already a member, so I have probably done this forum before years ago.

    Mainly ride in Maryland
    Build up my own bikes right now Dean Ace, selling my YBB, sold my single speed Specialized.
    Been riding since 1998 actively when I made the switch from BMX (man those wheels look small now)
    Considered goin 29er but "the boys" rested on the top bar of even the smallest framed 29ers at the bike shop, and I wasent feeling the girls frame idea.

    From Florence, SC
    I'm kind of a weekend warrior, I ride 9 miles about 3 or 4 days a week.
    Trail riding but not crazy aggressive.
    Rode all my life on Wal-bikes, been out of it for about 7 years, just got back in to it and went to LBS and bought a Trek. Man, what a difference.
    I got my whole family doing it.
    Looking forward to all of your knowledge.

    Greetings!

    1] Seattle, WA
    2] mostly city roads and trails
    3] two bikes: GT Karakoram and Janus Sedona
    4] riding 45 years and going strong...


    I started riding a bike like many American kids on my sister's three speed, then got my own Stingray....wow! What fun, except for that time that I forgot to tighten the front wheel then trid to make that jump down at the new house being built at the end of our street....but I digress.....

    I went through a phase of riding a ten speed in high school, also like many American kids, then dropped the thing like a hot potato when I got my driver's license....

    Decades passed and the mountain bike craze is in full swing and low and behold, I discover the form factor of the 26" bike to be much closer to me on a 20" as a pre-teen than me on a 27" road bike and I am liberated! Now riding a bike is fun again, like when I was a kid! No more worrying about weanie tire that pop if you ride over a stone, here's the curb-hopping appeal of riding a bike that I lost when I moved over to gasoline fueled transportation!

    Now I've gone over to the dark side and discovered the joys of suspension on the fork, which my aging hands and upper body appreciate more than the added weight, and I'm going strong into my fifth decade of pedal sports!

    Hey there, I'm Luis
    I am from Mexico
    I like to consider myself an aggressive Cross country - Soft All mountain rider
    I have one bike I use and I'm on the process of building 2 more
    I've been riding since 2009, but suspended 8months for a small injury
    I love MTBR and I read BikeRadar often too

    I still consider myself a beginner, because I have almost no time to ride during the week and I'm just reriding often on weekends, luckily for me, I live in the outer parts of the city, where there are a few trails to ride alone.
    I LOVE riding and I love to do bike mechanics, so I decided to build my own bikes.
    I bought a mexican brand hardtail frame, that is supposed to be strong enough for a 140 mm fork.
    I have also a Jamis Dakar XCT. I'll be asking for advice soon
    Nice to meet everyone

    My name's Ray. Recently made the decision to start riding for my general fitness. After breaking my back a few years ago I've gained a bunch of weight. I'm lucky, I have a friend that was an avid rider and he has gotten back into riding to help me out. he told me to come on here and check things out. I picked up this Trek from another friend that just had it sitting in the back of his garage for the past few years. We're slowly repairing things it needs. So far my total investment is about $55 and a few hours of labor, between buying the bike and a couple tubes to get it up and moving.

    1.) Where you are from? Blythewood SC
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? beginner
    3.) How many bikes you own? 1, a 2003 Trek that I bought from a friend
    4.) How long have you been riding? just started
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? mostly car and truck sites.
