I figured I'd stop in and say hello. I was referred over to this forum by someone on my Bass guitar forum as I was asking for advice on a new Mountain Bike. Looks like a killer place with a lot of great info. I'm in the process of researching, through this site, online, and local shops what I'm going to be purchasing here this next week (hopefully). I have very little experience mountain biking mainly because whenever I started I always ended up riding with people who were way more fit than I was...the kind of people that loved long grinding hills. This time, I'm on my own and hoping to enjoy some of the local trails which are a good mix of short climbs and DH riding. I'm looking forward to hanging around here and learning as much as I can!
