    Beginner MTB here....

    Please helppp!!!! I have just purchased my first MTB and am not really sure what I am doing. I had friends pick out a bike and plan on using it on local trails and such. Are there any tricks of the trade or basics i should know about my bike or riding in general???

    Nate

    It would be good if you can share with us what help you need. What kind of bike is it? What kind of riding do you do ie; fireroad hard pack, singletrack, ect.

    Here's one I learned yesterday. You never know how deep a mud puddle is until you are in it. If its really deep it may stop you dead in your tracks when the front wheel sinks in really deep.

    Ride, stop suddenly, yell oh S%^T, fall off bike.
