Hiya from New Hampshire

Hiya,
Just an intro to you folks from Hillsboro, NH. The wife & I, our black lab "Chewy" & our 2 felines just moved here last May from the west coast. Luv it so far - except the snow just won't go! I finally pulled my beloved old MTB out from the bowels of the storage shed - after it's traumatic trip across country with the movers I'm surprised it's still in 1 piece. Gotta buy the wife a new MTB as I hear Goodales in Concord is having a sale this week - any suggestions for a couple of newbies? We just like cruisin down the forest paths & dirt roads around here or when camping for fresh air & a little fun - nothing extreme for us. Attached a pic of my "vintage" clunker! lol.

Have Fun,
Matt & family

Hi Matt, check in with pastorbobnlnh--he's also in New Hampshire, and a great guy.

How old is the MTB?

Looks like a very nice rigid...

Hey. Thanks for the welcome! Funny you mention PastorBob - I was just browsing some of the vintage forums & reading his posts about old bikes - will have to see what he's up to. My old Hutch is probably from 1985, dunno that much about it - I bought it about 15 years ago from a buddy who rescued old bikes as a hobby, got them up & rolling again & sold them for a few bucks. It needs a good cleaning & overhaul - part of the reason I joined these forums was to pick the brains of folks here on how to fix it up for this spring/summer. lol - I just realized that it's still the first & only bike I've had after I grew outta my BMX stage!

Have Fun,
Matt

There's a thread in the C & V forum for vintage MTBs--and the Hutch would certainly qualify. There's bound to be someone who can tell you more about it than I can, though.

Cool. I'll check that out too. Still getting my bearings on this whole site. There's alot of stuff on here of interest. Know of any forums that discuss nice places to ride?
