Hey Everyone

Hello, my name's Noah. I'm a freshman in highschool in western MA. I might be a little young compared to most of the guys out here but I'm equally interested in bikes in general. I have a few questions but I'll put them in the appropriate thread. My main ride right now is a '12 Diamondback Outlook hardtail(I know, I know) Department store crap to everyone out here. But I was on a serious budget when I was looking for a bike, but I really needed to get into shape. I was about 5 '10 230 at the beginning of summer but after a summer of riding I'm about 190 pounds just about. Thanks,

Noah

Howdy Noah,

Great Weight loss.

I know I know, but don't really know any trails around here, been riding mostly rode hence the less knobby rear tire. Hopefully going out this weekend with a few friends.

Hey dude, great work! And a good idea to start off so young as it does NOT get easier to lose weight as you get older, so you are realy starting a good habit of riding as a hobby. The bike looks great - ride it like you stole it and save for something better. Keep it up!

Thanks. That's what I plan to do. I'm starting to get more interested in taking things off road and if I like it I'll save up to buy something with quality components and actual travel.
