    U.S. Navy says hello

    Good day, everyone. My name's Mike. I'm an Electronics Technician First Class in the U.S. Navy. I'm a submariner on most days but I'm going through a maintenance school in King's Bay, Georgia right now, which is a nice break.

    Got into mountain biking about three months ago and I've been bitten by the bug. I just can't get enough of it. When I'm not riding I'm online researching bikes, parts and techniques.

    I'm currently riding a Trek 4300, which I've pretty much pushed it to its limits. Pretty sad considering I'm in southeast Georgia where there are no real trails. I could just imagine what would happen if I should be stationed in Washington. It's sitting in storage right now because I broke a spoke and bent the wheel on my last outing. I'm trying to decide if I should keep the 4300 and upgrade the parts or purchase a newer, more capable bike.

    If anyone cares, I ride in Hanna Park or if I don't feel like driving 45 minutes, Fort Clinch.

    Anyway, enough rambling, just wanted to say hello.

    Well... you could get stationed in Vicenza and really get some good quality riding in... forget about Washington!

    Anyway, welcome, and I hope to see you posting soon!

    Retired USAF member welcomes you to the forums! I'm a roadie who has tried and enjoyed the MTB scene, I just haven't talked the better-half into letting me purcahse one yet. With all the dirt roads around these parts, a MTB tandem just might be the ticket.

    I buy a new bike every time I break a spoke. Unfortunately, the missus is finally on to me; after the third spoke, I was relegated to the garage. As much as I like being with my bikes, I think I'm going to check the tension on the rest of the spokes.
