Brand new mountain bike rider....
I just bought a used '2000 Schwinn Moab. I don't know a lot about bikes yet, but after reading the posts I think my bike has a decent set-up....Psylo fork, XTR R/D, and LX everywhere else.
I had a Schwinn Mesa about 6 years ago, but used just as a street bike mostly. Now I see how much more fun the dirt is......
(If I could only get in shape faster)
I'm sure I'll have a lot of dumb questiions,
so talk to ya soon

Welcome to the forums, Kevin. Always good to have another member from Northern Illinois. Your new mountain bike is certainly a worthy steed. Ain't dirt fun?

Do you ever ride at Rockcut? I'm looking for a good trail map...
Get this book:
"Bicycle Trails of Illinois, 3rd Edition", an American Bike Trails Publication.
This may help your quest- they provide the names and locations of trails, plus maps of the trails.
Welcome to the forums!
