    3.) Don't own a bike yet, hoping to get a used small Transition Syren, if I can find one!

    Even though I'm just a beginner, this community has already helped me a lot to make great choices in purchasing gear.

    My name is Kelly and I'm from Asheville,NC.
    I started in this sport back in 1993 when I bought a new Giant Rincon.
    I have been riding motorcycles for a few years,but injuries have ended that. I just purchased a '11 Rocky Mountain Altitude 29er and I hope this bike will handle all the local riding will throw at me.

    Hello

    Good Morning all.

    I am sadly from LaPorte, IN for now. Trying to get back to Ocala, FL. I lived there for 9 years and family talked me back to Indiana. Live and Learn!!! Hopefully by the end of summer I will have my ducks in a row and get back to Ocala.
    I am a Paramedic. I work on a Critical Care Team for Prompt Ambulance.
    I consider myself a weekend warrior. I haven't had my hands on too many quality bikes yet but I am in the market for sure. Back when I lived in Ocala I found out about the Ocala Mountain Bike Club, went out and bought a cheapo mountain bike. If you guys ever get a chance to check out the park in Ocala do it. Its awesome. I rode it every chance I got. Got pretty decent at it with the lead sled I was riding. I have a long, long history of bike riding. BMX when I was younger, then got into mountain biking after the 18-21 year old bike free slump.
    Well thats about all I can say at the moment. I am looking hard for another bike. I have a 2 month old lil girl that I am dying to take in her little trailer at Potato Creek (campground). When I find what I want and can afford I will be checking all the local trails. I guess there are a lot around here but you have to watch your @$$. So the LCP will be close by! Well, new to the site but am not too much of a newbie. If anyone has any questions feel free.

    2.Not a beginner. Ammature I would say; I've been riding on and off for the pure fun of it for the last 15 years.
    3. I have one bike, in transition right now. I had been riding a Jamis Komodo that I put together back in '04, but am now using what I can of it to build up an '07 vintage Cannondale Rush. So many standards have changed in that time. I can't buy many new parts, I have to fish them off E-Bay!
    4. This is the first forum I've stopped by on this site, which I've used countless times to look at reviews for years...Just never looked at the forums.
    5. I check out ducati.ms, and ferrarichat.com religiously. I have an old Ducati, and have my eye on an old 308GTB.

    Newb from Texas

    Hi all, Kai here from Katy,TX
    Riding bikes since I can remember.
    Raced BMX for a few years till I got a YZ80.
    Bought new Stumpjumper M2FS in 1994, raced and rode it for a couple years and still have it. Has many upgrades.
    Have not ridden it in about 12 years now...Had a couple kids in my practice marriage that changed priorities.
    Ready to start spinning again and getting the bike back up to speed.
    Don't see myself racing through the woods anymore, but would like to get back on the trails and get my fat ass back into some kind of shape besides round.

    I have a question to start off with...

    I have a Judy FSX that has a Risse Racing Gem that has apparently leaked out. I had to rebuild it during my racing spree and it needs it again. Can I still get a rebuild kit for it? If I remember correctly I bumped it up to 3 inches or 75mm...Does this sound right? Forgive me as I've been out of the loop for quite awhile.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Hi, I am Shawn and live in Canada. I just purchased a 2008 Diamondback Response in the spring (my only bike), and hope to learn a lot from this sight. I am a beginner rider who really likes my bike and wants to explore places around the country side. This is the first place I signed up. Thanks,

    -Shawn

    Newbie and injured

    1.) Where you are from? phoenix az
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? beginner
    3.) How many bikes you own? 2
    4.) How long have you been riding? 2 yrs
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? none yet!

    besides introducing myself, i'd like to get some advise... about 4 years ago my wife and i bought sturdy entry level schwinns from a bike shop. 2 years later i decide to try racing (beginner lever) and bought a 2003 epic pro. great shape and cheap. soon after however i developed knee issues--bascially my kneep cap was no longer tracking correctly. last dec i had athro w/ lateral release and recovery is taking longer than expected. in fact i may not be able to ride for a year or two.
    question: do i sell it THE EPIC while it still has some resale value, and later by another, or do i keep it?
    thanks!

    Guess this kind of thing can only happen in Thailand..........................on the third lap of a four lap race (one lap being 7 km) and this marshal stops me and says they have dicided to make it a three lap race....................DAMN..............I wish someone could have told me that at least one lap ago. How on earth can you change the distance of a race while the race is on. Here's me, pacing myself and ready to cut loose of the 4th and final lap.........................little bit sickening really..................its not like I was one of few who did only three laps, the whole damn field did only three................why on earth did several folks tell me four laps at the beginning and if for whatever reason they changed the distance of the race DURING THE RACE surely they should have let the competitors know .........................living in South East Asia certainly has its moments and this was one of the more memorable ones......................T.I.T................... .this is Thailand.

    Hello, My name is Scott, and hopefully I can actually post here, because I haven't been able to respond to any threads, or create any in any of the other forums, leaving me wondering just how I am going to get the 5-10 posts that the system keeps telling me I need..

    Joined the forum for general knowledge, I don't have the aspirations of most, I just like to get out and ride with my wife and daughter (age 6) on local bike paths for the together time, and the exercise. Maybe one day (if we get into good enough shape) I'd like to try to tackle some really easy dirt trails together as a family (trying to find a tagalong/half wheeler for our daughter so we can stop renting it!)

    1.) Where you are from? Baltimore, Md. Area
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Beginner/Newbie
    3.) How many bikes you own? One, an ancient 1994 Giant ATX860 (yes, my username was a typo, and e-mails to the moderator about it have gone unanswered..), but I like it, and it serves my purposes..
    4.) How long have you been riding? Well, I guess the right answer is I'm just getting back into it..
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? No other Bike Forums at this time..

    Giant ATX870 (Scott): try posting/asking questions in the area specific VA/MD forum, and families and riding with kids forum. Your wife can post/question in the women's forum. You should build up a few posts quickly.
