    New to mtn biking

    I recently got into mtn biking about three months ago. I wanted to do this mainly to stay in shape and get some excerise. I picked up a 2013 Giant Revel as an entry level bike first before buying something of better quality to make sure id be into this. The bike has been great for me so far. The forks are awful but I hope to replace them at some point. My buddy and I ride Lancaster county park weekly and try to hit mt gretna on Saturdays when we can. Took my first spill on Thursday so I'll be down for awhile but just wanted to say hi.

    That's a great bike to start on, I got my wife a Revel 3 to try riding trails on. The only thing I changed was to swap out the stock tires for a pair of Captain Controls from my old bike and it is very trail worthy.
