Hi my name is Amy and I am 44 years old just getting into mountain biking. Hockey and ski season are over so needed something to do in the summer.
I just bought a Cannondale Tango SL2 29er and have only got to ride it a couple times around the block at which point we then got 15 inches of new snow dumped on us!
My kids tried to keep up with me on their old bikes and couldn't do it. They had both outgrown their big box store bikes so we went looking and found them each a bike as well. (a Giant and a Novara) Thank goodness for tax returns.
Got them signed up for a kids mountain biking group near by and they encourage parent participation luckily so you can bet I will be. Also signed up for a maintenance class at a bike co-op as the only thing I can do is fix a chain right now.
We are very anxious to be out riding but until the snow melts, at least on the streets in our neighborhood, we won't be going anywhere. I currently live near Anchorage, Alaska and there are lots of trails nearby. I will be moving back to Oklahoma to be near family though so want to make the most of my time left in Alaska so the snow had better hurry up and melt.
Anyway, that's all for now, here is a photo of my bike. It's a medium frame btw, I am 5'6". I tried several women's Specialized 29ers (I think Myka was one of them) and also the Tango sl3 which I originally was interested in but the better components of the sl2 sold me. The size tall didn't quite fit me. Haven't seen very many reviews of the Tango SL2 which worried me a bit but it fit me great and I loved it.
