    What's up everyone?!?!

    I found this forum as I am planning on re-introducing myself to the world of bicycle riding!

    As a kid, I grew up in Frisco, and had some buddies that I would go mtn biking with. We rode from the Sunset, through the Presidio, over the Golden Gate Bridge, up to the Marin Headlands. And then back. I had so much energy back then...what happened?!??!

    Well, fast forward to 2008. I moved out to Dublin, and work in Pleasanton and with gas prices so high, I thought, "Hey, why not bike to work?" I drove the bike route today and it was a shade under 5 miles. So I've been in the market for a new MTB .... so if anyone has any helpful tips, or suggestions on where to go in the East Bay, that'll be fantastic!!!

    Thanks everyone, and I hope to learn a bunch from y'all on this forum.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I used to live in Hayward and could suggest a shop there, but I am sure there must be at least a couple of shops out your way that are good. I would suggest dropping into the Northern Cal Regional forum to ask about suggestions on shops.
