boone from Rhode Island
First time listener, first time caller.
Just thought I would introduce myself. I'm 24 years old and I decided this past weekend that I needed a hobby. I like the woods, I like the outdoors and I find that I'm not as active as I used to be. I'm still in good shape it's just declining steadily.
I found a barely used 02 Gary Fisher Tassajara on craigslist for $250. Perfect size. Very comfortable (genesis geometry?). I've done a little bit of mountain biking in the past. I did a lot of biking when I was younger, before I was able to drive, mostly BMX and street riding as a method of transportation. None of my bikes were ever any good. Used (beaten) or Huffy's.
I'm anxious to get out there and this forum was a great help when I went to look at the bike last night.
I'm no stranger to internet forums. I know to search first, ask second. I am a heavy participant in my truck forum (2000+ posts). Just new to the sport and new here.
Thanks for reading.
Non Tribuo Anus Rodentum and off to the next adventure (RIP)
Hi Boone, you might want to check out the MTB forum for any specific questions you may have. Also why not pop in the NE reigonal forum... might be something going on in the 'hood.
