    New guy here, just getting back into MTB after quite a few years.
    I lived in CO for 13 years and was a pretty avid XC and DH rider since the trails are all pretty awesome out there.
    I had an older Trek 4900 that I rode when I was in CO but left it out there and have been bikeless for a few years.
    So today I just went to my LBS and picked up a '13 Trek Wahoo and I'm pretty confident I got a decent bike for what I intend to do.
    Figured I would get in with a forum since that's what I do with all my other interests, anyways, hello!

    1.) Woodstock, GA now
    2.) all mountain/trail riding i guess
    3.) Just the one
    4.) since 2003
    5.) No other forums pertaining to MTB, but a Subaru forum and Reef Aquarium forum

    I am George from Newark,Ca. Its here in the East Bay.
    I am just a weekend warrior 29 er trail rider,with the kids.
    We have 3 bikes
    I rode BMX most of my life and owned a Univega mountain bike for a while. Just getting back into it after about 13 years. My current bike is a 2013 Hardrock Sport
    This is the only forum that I visit at this time.

    Well just getting back into bikes, My kids are at the age where they want to ride now. So from what I have read here lots of things have changed over the years. So I need to soak up all the good knowledge that I have been reading here.
    Be glad to help out where I can and will need lots of help as I go along also.
    Glad I found this place.

    Hi, My name is Oscar

    I live in Murrieta Ca
    I probably a newb, but I have been riding on and off for years, just starting to get back into it again (at 38)
    I have 3 bikes, a Cannondale Caad 9-5, Redline Monogoc 29er (with 22 teeth granny haha) and a Giant Trance X2
    I have been riding my road bike for a couple of years, but school and a small business with the wife prevent me from riding too much. I work 10 miles away so on the summers I will ride my bike to work.

    Hey everyone, my name is Aaron, I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I've been riding for about 5 years, but have only gotten serious about it in the last 2.5 years. I'm mainly into trail riding with the odd all day xc adventure, or enduro race thrown in. I've had a few bikes now, all 26", I'm currently testing 29ers and having a ball doing it.

    Hey guys, happy New Year! I'm Joe and a complete newbie to mountain biking.

    1. From Lake Worth, FL (near West Palm/Ft. Lauderdale). Originally from NYC area, have lived in FL for 14 years now.
    2. Total beginner looking to do local singletrack trails (and get in shape). Was big into road biking in my early teen years but that was 30 years ago!!
    3. Just got my one and only bike, a Diamondback Overdrive 29'er, got a killer deal from Amazon right after Christmas.
    4. A week.
    5. So far this is the only bike related forum I'm a member of.

    Have logged about 20 miles in the past week on local streets and some dirt/grass access roads. Hoping to hit Quiet Waters in the next few weeks and get my first taste of real trail riding!

    My name is Robert from El Monte,ca. My preference is BMX but I can appreciate any quality bicycle. I have a couple of mountain bikes, Jekyll 800, Ross Mt.Whitney, Rodriguez tandem and 1 I need help identifying. All of my riding includes my 17 year old son, I'm lucky he likes hanging out with me. BMXSociety.com is where I spend most of my time.

    G'day, i'm michael from australia. I have been on bikes continuously since a kid and have ridden a lot at times and not so much since having kids. This year i have gotten back on a road bike, and have found the benefit to my health enormous. In six months i have gone from a 38" waist to a 36" and i wasn't even trying.

    My brother has just started racing mountain bikes and he has talked me into getting back on the dirt - and probably doing a few races with him. I am a bit bewildered by the choice in bikes out there on the market. It was easy 15 years ago when i was last on the dirt - all the bikes were pretty similar. I'm still trying to look thru all the marketing hype and am here currently to try to get some advice on buying a bike and setting it up. I find suspension particularly confusing!

    top-ten best user name ever in my book.

    Forgot to say my -preference now is greenbelts with some jumps thrown in here or there (Hence the P.3 usage) - I am a fairly competent rider.
    I own 2 bikes - the main daily rider is my Sepcialized P.3 and I have a Huffy Backwater for those poor weather days but still keep it nice - will be reviving my 1999 Specialized Rockhopper soon for my Fiance!
    Been riding since 1990 casually - full blown trails/jumps since 1996

    Thanks mate. I have been looking at the local courses my brother wants me to race on, and they are very flat - i am guessing a hardtail is going to be the way to go even for an old bloke like me. I am currently on a carbon road bike, and i have been amazed by the ability of the frame to soak up road chatter - and some of the local roads are absolute goat-tracks. In fact, i often have to ride a bit of dirt. With modern frames with more vertical compliance and bigger wheels, i can see you could do a lot more now on a hardtail. And they are cheaper, simple and light - all of which appeals to me. I wonder if we'll see Trek use something like theroad Domane frame to build a hardtail mountain bike that effectively has the suspension built into the frame.

    But i can also see that the trails my brother rides are very technical and steep (they are ski fields in winter). I can already see that i'll end up with two bikes! A XC hardtail and something with more suspension later on for riding with the little brother in the mountains.

    My name is Santiago and I am a mountain bike rider from Mexico. I have been riding casually since I was very young. After almost a year of no riding, I decided to upgrade to a new bike. I owned a 99(ish) Specialized Hard Rock 15', since I had this bike since I was 14, it had already become a bit small for me. Yesterday I decided to buy a new (used) bike that fits me better and has better quality components. Got a VERY good deal with a Cannondale Flash Carbon 29er. I test rode it and it felt like a bike meant for me, maybe too much bike for my skills but the price was very low for my country.
    Since I am really excited with the new bike, I decided to join this community which seems nice and friendly, to get more involved in the MTB world and take better care of the bike.
    My other passion is cars. I am a rally co-driver in the local championship. I spend a lot of time in car forums.

    Hey, from Houston Texas
    and I suppose I'd be a weekend trail rider for now
    just the one bike
    I've been riding since I could walk
    This, and others for other interests

    I bent and cracked the wheel on my other bike last time out, and the suspension was worn out, so I have a Gary Fisher Fat Possum LX that is on the way from Iowa, should be here next week--

    Hey all, I'm from Jacksonville, FL but I'm in Orlando for school. I'm a beginner who had one bike (ended up being a faulty bike), so I'm currently looking for my first. I don't frequent any other biking forums but I do frequent poker forums.
