Yup, a newbie here. Im from Limerick, Pa. & Im 32yrs. old. I've rode off & on most of my life. Typical BMX stuff as a kid & MTB when I started riding again a few years ago.
During the summer months I actually get paid to ride, as a bike cop. Its a heavy Trek Police Edition. Therefore none of my unpaid riding is on paved areas .
I currently have an old Specialized Rockhopper & I'm planning on getting something new, (so please read my other post in the MTB Forum). And I like Yeungling Lager
