    Newbie from CT

    Hello,
    Name is Chris.
    20 years old.
    From Connecticut.
    I need some advice!
    Right now i'm riding a 46lb Wal-Mart Royce Union Mountain Bike.
    It was cute for a while. Then I started really riding more and more, I won't say i'm consistent, but i'm definitely more active on a bike than I once was..

    So my set up is an 18" Royce Union something or other with big doofy springs for suspension and 26" tires.
    My other setup is a Club 20" freestyle Uni.

    So if you have any questions, let me know!
    and this is my introduction.
    HELP!
    I mean, Hello!

    Nice another CT member. How close are you to Wallingford, or the New Haven area

    I live in it, about 10 minutes from Wallingford, and 3 from New Haven.

    Not one. I have some friends who ride with me, about 6 of us. Sometimes we can get some more, sometimes less. I noticed a trail on in Wallingford, off of one of the exits, anything worth riding?

    Welcome to Bike Forums. You might try posting in the Northeast regional forum to see if there are local BF riders in your area.

    Hey, big bump guys!
    I just purchased my first road bike and wanted to get more serious about it. Since the above post (and many other terrible ones like it) I've purchased a Specialized Rockhopper that i've been riding. Recently, I came into a Cannondale c400 hybrid, that im trying to sell, and as of right now, the bike that brought me back to the forums is a Raleigh (r)R-200.
    The last bike leaves me the most perplexed, it's a really nice bike, rides well, components look good, but when I google it, I cannot find it anywhere! Oh well, I shall be riding it from here on out anyhow!

    Glad to be back.
