Just wanted to introduce myself. I live in Sugar Land, TX (Part of Houston) and been riding a recumbant for about a year. Decided to give mountain biking a try and just traded in my Trek Wahoo I purchased two weeks ago for a Specialized StumpJumper FSR Expert.
I'm 42 and feel like i'm 18 when on a trail!!!!!!!! This is so much fun except today I did have my first spill when trying to ride on an advance trail with tricks (Fell off the ramp and ditched the bike).
If your in Sugar land, I just found a great trail off South University that seems to be a secret!
