Hi, I'm Ryan from AZ

Hey everyone, I'm Ryan. I've been wanting to get it on the mountain bike scene. I just got a used 2002 Haro ICS 5.0. I'ts in good condition and i think i got a good deal on it so i'm happy about that. I'm gona start looking for some fun trails to ride around my neighborhood or up around the Arizona State campus. Mostly i want to ride trails and get some good excersize to help shed some pounds. I don't understand a lot of biking terms. Where could i go to learn some stuff? Any input would be great thanks...

Ryan

Welcome Ryan. I hope you enjoy your new bike and these forums. Check out the net for any terms you might need, there are tons of them.

dictionary of mountain bike slang , it's pretty funny.

Also check out
Sheldon Brown's Bike Glossary , pretty good stuff. Sheldons whole site is useful.
peace...
