Hi guys. I just wanted to duck in introduce myself, since this forum was quite helpful in my recent quest to buy a bike.
Im fairly new to mountain biking, by which I mean that Ive gone out with people I knew who where real into it, but I never owned a bike or went out regularly. About a year ago, I graduated college and moved from Blacksburg VA (Virginia Tech) to Vienna, VA and started working.
To make a long story short, I recently found myself shopping for a new bike, and the end result was me walking home with a Giant Ranier. Ive been out riding it around the streets around where I live, and like it so far, but obviously it hasnt been put to any serious test yet.
So Id just like to thank you guys for the wonderful forum. It was a great resource to me, and I appreciate it.
Now to just find some trails to ride this thing on....
