Hello Peoples

Hi everyone!

I'm a trials and mountain unicyclist, and want to get into mountain biking.



anyway, (there are probably a gazzillion threads for this), what would be a good full suspension mountain bike for around $1000?

Thanks,
Miles

Hello Miles, I can't help you answer your MTB question (although there should be a sticky in the MTB forum to get you started), but I can tell you that I am impressed that you are a mountain unicyclist. And trials, too!

Have any photos of yourself doing the mountain unicycling thing?

Welcome to BF!

Holy ... pooo! I just can't imagine! Awesome skill - hehe, seems like you're going backwards - I would think you'd start out with the two wheel and then work the one! Have fun!

Oh and EH -- nice catch on the cactus landing!
