Just started riding again after a ten year absence. I always bought used bikes or my brother in laws hand me downs. I decided to buy a new mountain bike and picked up a Trek 4300. I use it for bike trails, paths, some street and some dirt and gravel. Really like the bike as an entry level but will buy a better bike in the future. I wasn't too impressed with the LBS I bought the bike at, but, there are about five in my area so my next purchase will be a little better thought out, lol.
Really enjoying my rides and the knowledge and debate on the boards.
