Hello from Maryland

I have been biking my whole life and started mountain biking 18 years ago on a Specialized Hard Rock. I have been out of the saddle for a while but now am back and have been riding at Patapsco State Park, which is gorgeous and fun. But I need a new ride. I love my old my bike, as it has seen me through some serious ups and downs, but it has just never quite fit me right. It's pink and purple but I think it's really a men's bike just painted. So, I'm looking to buy a new bike that fits and I have enjoyed what I've read in this forum.

Hi Livie, the women's forum can probably give you some good hints and tips on the bike selecting. I had a hard time when I first started riding because I am quite short, but I found out that there were vintage bikes in my size that fit perfectly, and now I am addicted to old steel bikes .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
