heya mark

welcome to the forums, I dislike driving too, I think it's kinda silly to go drive for hours to ride a bike

the mtb forums should have some good stuff for you....

anyhow welcome aboard.

i have no bike shop near me to get the bolt i need.am tired of BREAKING stuff like frames rims bolts etc.so i am going to get a downhill bike that is NOT a racing frame.it will weigh more for cross country and single track but hopefully no more broken main parts. i just read on this forum if you thrash on a bike dont get a racing frame.found a downhill one for cheap that i can take parts off diamond back to save weight like rims tires shifters derailers etc.we'llsee how it goes.i guess you cant have the old 70s type run it off a cliff and its ok unless you spend BIG BUCKS.whatever happened to the old indestructable bikes anyway did they rust away or what.im 39 and still think i can just go for broke like when i was a kid LOL.bikes cant handle it though.
