    Hello from Naples Fl.

    Just stopping in to introduce myself. I am a 23 year old guys that used to ride mountain bikes a lot in high school. I got away from it in college and I am trying to get back into it now. I have a 17" Jamis dakota that is way too small for me now b/c I am now 6'2". I am looking into getting a new bike. I would like a Jamis dakar xcr expert or kona dawg primo. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am really trying to get into the sport really heavily again so as I can get back into shape.

    Hello mtnyeti97, I can't give you any recommendations about the various mountain bikes (although there's a sticky in the Mountain Biking forum), but I am curious where you would be doing mountain biking in Naples, Florida?

    Welcome to BF!

    There are a few mountain bike trails in florida. A couple of really good ones like markam park, and johnathan dickinson state park. But yeah I know there are plenty more road riding places. My family also has a cabin in north georgia that I like to mtn bike there too.

    Hey mtnyeti. How's the heat down there in Naples today? Plenty hot here in Tampa right now. Must be nice to go to a cabin in the "north" woods this time of year. Welcome to Bike forums. I ride a trek 4900 here mostly at Alafia St. Pk.
