    Also and ex-BMXer

    I grew up on a BMX too, but stopped riding biycles for some time. Bought a mountain bike a few months ago and all the ol' skills are coming back. I love doing wheelies, little jumps, stoppies and bunny hopps (any excuse to get my butt in the seat). I want to find some nice jumps and burms to try got some real hight...........aaahhhh the good ol' BMX days. Having the BMX background has really prepared me for technical climbs up step rocky or rooty inclines and adrenaline pumping, life flashing before you, downhill bursts. Love MTBing, just surprised it took me so long to find out.

    Hello MTBR World!

    I am David, Originally from Concord, NC, but living in Durham now.

    I consider myself an experienced rider, i've been riding since age 6. Always wide open and pushing the envelope its a miracle i'm still alive. I ride mostly singletrack, and I have a road bike that I like to get out and just chalk up the miles on.

    Currently I have 4 bikes in my house. A hybrid for grocery trips, single speed, road bike, and the moutain bike i'm working on. Almost finshed with it.

    Guess thats it for now.

    I'm Adam I'm from the united states and I'm not afraid of anything. Unlike some people on this site.

    Well, it's official. One of the mods is a puss and doesn't like guns. So much in fact that he/she deleted my entire thread about firearms and they knew there were to many good points in there. I don't know what it is with people that hate guns.....did they have a gun chase them down street one day? O that's right, guns are inatimate objects unable of doing something on their own, kinda like a kitchen knife. For a kitchen knife to hurt someone a person must use it incorrectly......same with a gun. But now I'm using LOGIC. Sorry about that, some here don't know what that is.

    S'mae pob / Hi guys
    My name's Trefor and I'm from Wales.
    I'm a wrinkly old duffer and should know better but I'm out riding XC an AM as often as possible. Local routes here on the Berwyn mountain and the MTB centres nearby.
    Main bike is my RIP9, then my Kona Hei-Hei 2-9, mu On-one Inbred 29er and my 1967 Mercian King of Mercia road bike. Been riding since '67 when I bought the Mercian.
    What's a forum? Sounds rude...

    Not got a good photo of me out on the trails but here's the RIP9 on the Marin trail in the Gwydyr forest.

    I'm a firearm fan as well, but this IS a bike forum. Maybe the MOD was just trying to do damage control and keep from having a political debate that has nothing to do with cycling. But hey, if you ever wanna talk firearms, shoot me a message haha.
