    Got a "new" bike

    Well I have been looking for a few months and putting some dough aside to purchase a 29er. I was looking for something in the 500 dollar range so this took me some time. I found a 2013 Marin Bloinas Ridge on craigslist. Went to see the bike last night and was surprised it was so new. Still had the "tits" on the tires and reflectors in the spokes....grips clean as a whistle. I offered him 300 and he took it. I am so excited to hit the trails this weekend!

    great bike. As the rear tire wears out (or earlier if you get the upgrade bug), see if you have clearance to put the 2.2" tire on back, and put a 2.3" tire up front.

    Here it is near the 21 Jumps Trail head in the Pisgah Natl Forest. Its bout 3lbs heavier than my old fully rigid cromoly 26er. Climbs well descends ALOT better than the old 26er,lol. Pretty happy overall. I will look for a lighter crank set and fork in the future.
