I am from Knoxville TN. I just started riding a couple weeks ago. Like most kids I rode a bike all the time when I was younger and I always wanted to get into Mountian Biking. So I bought a used bike from a friend of mine. It is a Iron Horse Maverick 1.2, nothing too special about it. It is perfect for me to get back into the sport. Also I have a COulmbia Shadow road bike, it needs some work on it but I plan to clean it up and ride it on the road.
