    Hello from Trigger1

    Hello all,

    I'm new to MTB and needed a place to come and chat and ask questions. I used to run 3-5 miles a day. At 30yoa and 6'6" tall 250lbs, guess what my knees started to make strange noises. So I needed a replacement. I bought a used Giant Warp from a friend that never rode it, heck the "hairs" were still on the tires. I love this sport. I'm still learning, the hard way sometimes. It's a blast though. I've put some very hard miles on this bike in a very short time. I ride almost exclusively on single track. The skill I seem to have picked up on the fastest is crashing, especially the fast and hard type. Man I love this sport.

    Anywho, glad to be here, I hope to not anoy the regulars too much with the novice questions.

    cheers to all!
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Welcome.

    Your knees will love you for taking up biking. It's helped me heal from a torn PCL, and I can run again to play softball.

    Thanks cycling!
