    (1) Chattanooga, TN...but have had the pleasure of living in & riding the worlds best terrain including Colorado, Germany, Washington.

    (2) Experienced trail rider

    (3) Currently just 1 bike. I had owned 5 high end bikes which a nasty ex of mine decided to sell off while I was in Iraq.

    (4) I have been on a bike my entire life but decided to get serious about cycling in 1997, so 14 years of quality saddle time

    (5) I don't use any forums all that much. I do keep up with my favorite manufacturers, retailers, and teams on Facebook

    Just looking to get the coveted 5 post count thing down so I can get some feedback on what people think about getting in road miles on a mountain bike. At the moment it's my only option. I need to get out & ride everyday, but due to weather, the cost of travel to trails, I'm thinking why not hit up the road daily and get some fitness in. Do any of you hit up the road on your mountain bikes? I'm rebuilding, and a road bike is in the future but in the meantime I feel like I have to do the best with what I have. Or is it just not worth the effort?

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

    Born and raised in the bay area...San Jose, California

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

    I consider myself an intermediate rider. I use to ride 4 times a week up until the point I got married and started a family. That was about 7 years ago. I just started riding again less then a month ago. I often visit Alum Rock Boccard0, Stevens Creek Canyon, and Grant Ranch.

    3.) How many bikes you own?

    Current 1. 2000 Klein Mantra carbon fiber.

    4.) How long have you been riding?

    I picked up mountain bike riding in the mid 90's.

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

    1st mountain bike forum I have joined. Since I last picked up a bike it seems as though this sport has grown.

    Add anything else you care to share.

    I have a upgrade question to ask. Since the rule prohibit me from posting a new thread I am unable to ask my question in the appropriate sub forum.

    Yesterday I fried my rear hub and decided to spend a little money on the bike and upgrade both front and rear wheels. There is a Mavic M517 ceramic coated rim mounted with XTR M960's for $450 out the door, is it worth it to spend the money on this vintage set?

    Hey everyone just checking in. I have recently got back into mtn biking after a few years out of the saddle. I know it's going to be a long road in getting back to what I use to do but I have forgot how much I love to ride. I'm in the Olympia, WA area and I would consider myself a weekend warrior in the all mountain class if I had to actually class myself. The only ride I have right now is a KHS fsc 504 now but I am on the hunt for a Giant or Norco FS to upgrade. As I said, I have been riding off and on since 1995 and the last time I really rode was 2005. As far as as other forums, I visit a few Jeep forums and some tactical ones and my passion over the last few years has been shooting.

    Thanks,
    OP4

    Good job! "check-in"

    well this is my akward first time...
    residing in the nor cal central valley, don't come here 'less you have to.
    rode bmx as a youngster, merely flirted with mtb the last few years but am ambitious.
    2 bikes, well 1 heaping diamond back response which i bought a size too big but has got me started none the less, and just picked up a super v frame and gots some planz build for my first time.
    just a local trail here, but looking forward to so much great terrain not too far in any direction.
    first forum. i'm rather techno shy but here it goes.
    i think i did what the directions told me...

    Hello to all

    1.) Where you are from? Apache Junction, AZ
    2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? I consider myself beginner but think I have a little bit of skill, so maybe a step above beginner
    3.) How many bikes you own? 2 - Trek XC, Giant Revel 0
    4.) How long have you been riding?15ish years (no off road), last 6 months have been off roading
    5.) What forums do you frequent most? not too many

    I found a new liking after riding a bike with ft suspension (a lot of rocks and rough stuff out here in the desert). No more aching wrists and hands.
    I have ridden dirt bikes and still ride road bikes (motorcycles). I enjoy scuba diving, although I don't go as much as I would like. Just about anything outdoors.
    I thought mountain biking would help me get back into shape a bit while enjoying the great outdoors. I will probably frequent the Arizona part of the forums but thought I should introduce myself to all.

    Brandon here! I just got back into mountainbiking after hiatus for about 8 years. Had surgery on my elbow and all I wanted to do was get active again.
    I picked up a sweeeeeeet gently used SC Tazmon while I was still in a cast and now I'm back on the trails here near Vegas. Good times!
