    Hi, New here, just introducing myself...

    Its 3:22 am and im at work, going on hour 15, so im beat, but i was surfing the net and here i am.

    I am a 21 year old Intelligence Analyst in the US Army here in Savannah, GA. i used to ride back in the day where i am originally from on Long Island. I havnt ridden in about 4 years, and i decided to jump back into it. my old bike got stolen from my little brother who was using it a few months ago, but it was an old beat up GT from like '93. Im building my own bike, something i can afford to do now, which i couldnt when i was an avid rider back in highschool. I just purchased a Giant XTC frame brand new for $200. im looking to go with a SID world cup fork and all XTR components, a far cry from my old bike which had rock shox quadra 10's and a mix of Alivio and STX components on a steel frame. Im hoping to complete my project by the end of august, and i came here, hoping to get advice and motivation. this is not necessarily a new hobby for me, but i am more of a "born again" rider.

    Thanks
    -Craig
