I just found the site a few days ago while doing a little research on which Mtn. Bike to buy. I am in Vancouver Wa. New to riding but the wife had a Mtn. bike and we bought a trailer fro it to haul the 1 year old around in so I decided I need one also. I bought a Trek 4500 with Disc brakes today. Figured this would be a good running around bike and I will use it during hunting season also. So great to be here and looking forward to more great info.
