Hello and happy friday!
Howdy from the mid-cities area in north Texas. My name is Eric, decided on flats on a username as in my limited expirence with trail riding around lake Grapevine, all my crashes came on what I thought to be the safest part of the trail - flat ground!
I started riding a couple years ago on a mongoose mountain bike that I think is out of production as I can't find replacement brake pads that fit it, but have kept it going (and stopping safely) with scavenged parts... really looking forward to learning more about working on bikes and upgrading my bike - starting with replacing the brakes completely. Anyhow ya'll have a good one.
