The truth! I do some single track as much as possible, I hope to go into a competition or two sometime. I just got a pair of clipless pedals (today in fact) for my Schwinn Moab. I think it's a '00 model... but anyway it's a great bike for me. Inexpensive with good components and a front fork!
I've only ridden the new Time ATACs up and down my driveway, doing bunny hops all the way. It sure was a nice feeling though. I'll just need to practice falling.
I'm not exactly new to the online forum thing, I have been on www.vwvortex.com for a while now. If you own a VW or Audi, go there!
Anyways, hope to learn a lot here!
