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.
