I have been telling my wife that i wanted to get back into riding. And boy have things changed since i was a school boy freewheelin on my BMX Anyways i got my father's day gift early, a Specialized HardRock XC. And my second gift was finding this forum which will help to get the most of my HRXC. I am just starting with riding again and it looks like this bike will handle my needs just perfectly. Anyway i am looking forward learning and sharing with you all and enjoying riding. Also she got one too so we will both be riding and working our way up to some serious trail riding in the future.
