    Hello From Middleburg/Jacksonville Fl

    I am new to the forum. I mostly ride around the surrounding subdivisions in my area. I own a Trek 930 singletrac mtb and a Giant Rincon SE mtb. I have never really been able to afford to buy a new bike. I paid $30 dollars for the trek at a pawnshop and had to put a new chain on it and I recently purchased the Giant Rincon at a pawnshop for $50. Both bikes are in great shape and I enjoy gettting out and riding.

    Is there anyone here from the Orange Park/Middleburg FL area?

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you have a pretty good pawn shop in your area.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have been really lucky with pawnshops in my area. The first bike I ever purchased at a pawnshop was a Specialized Hardrock that was to big for me. I bought that bike for $10 bucks. The only thing wrong with the bike was that the chain was rusted.
