Howdy folks

Hello to all!

Someone suggested I give everyone a proper intoduction post as I am new to this forum.

I am 16 years old, live in Altamonte Springs (close to Orlando) Florida, USA, and have a Mongoose MGX (don't laugh, it was a christmas present, and when I ride it dead, I'll get me a good bike). I ride wherever I can, to school, on a hiking trail, paved trail, or whatever else looks fun. There seems to be a lack of biking trails here, so I just make do. As for my experience, I have, until recently, just been a kid with a bike. In the last 6 months to a year, I have been a lot more interested in off-road biking and just gotten more 'into it'. I finally looked for a good cycling forum to help me with some of my questions and believe I have found a good one.

As for my life outside of biking, I take flying lessons, play the piano, am a major flight sim addict, and take frequent trips to visit relative in Germany.

So now y'all have some information about me that you want (and a lot of info that you don't), I will go do something constructive.

it's not about the bike....thats what lance said...or maybe he said it was about the bike. I forget. anyway whats important is that u like to ride. but then again my little brother inlaw has one of those bikes and he was up out of the saddle the other day when the plastic pedal broke on him....not a pretty sight.

be careful
