    Newbie from Illinois

    Brand new mountain bike rider....
    I just bought a used '2000 Schwinn Moab. I don't know a lot about bikes yet, but after reading the posts I think my bike has a decent set-up....Psylo fork, XTR R/D, and LX everywhere else.
    I had a Schwinn Mesa about 6 years ago, but used just as a street bike mostly. Now I see how much more fun the dirt is......
    (If I could only get in shape faster)
    I'm sure I'll have a lot of dumb questiions,
    so talk to ya soon
    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Welcome to the forums, Kevin. Always good to have another member from Northern Illinois. Your new mountain bike is certainly a worthy steed. Ain't dirt fun?

    Get this book:

    "Bicycle Trails of Illinois, 3rd Edition", an American Bike Trails Publication.

    This may help your quest- they provide the names and locations of trails, plus maps of the trails.

    Welcome to the forums!
