Hi everyone

Hi

I will be 30 later this year and am looking at getting back to riding again.
In the market for an entry level mtb.
Male, 177cm tall and around 75KG.

Update: Thread about my new bike options.

Welcome Phobos. Yes, do get back into riding again. Many of us have taken a break from cycling only to rediscover it years later. This forum is mostly about introductions and welcomes, but I'm sure you'll find a subforum where people will have suggestions (and be selling) bikes.

Just an update.
The Schwinn used bike has been sold (not to me) and that's ok.
Still doing some reading to try find what is the best bike for me.
I'll either get a used bike and then a 29er later, or just get a really good 26er now and work it from there.
The Giant Revel 0 is looking like a cool bike to get though.

It's human nature to always want something better. I have a great bike and I'm planning my next. If money is tight, I'd get a used bike now and the 29er later (that's just me), because I also find that I like what I own.
