So i got my new bike today a Specialized HardRock Sport Disc (was suppose to get a stumjumper but im only in town for 2 more months and didnt want to spend alot of money)
Overall the bike was amazing when i rode it today, maybe its my newbiness and inexperience and the fact that i havent ridden in two years and the last bike i rode was an x-mart bike. The only problems i had were the brakes squeaking, the pedals since i hit my shins twice and got some cuts,and the fact that i bottomed out the fork and im only 140lb and it was also really spongy.
I went on a pretty sweet ride i went to this trail called fantasy island which is 1/2 mile from my house. This trail was awesome it consisted of everything downhill,uphill,ramps,90 degree turn i though it was a bit beyond my skill since i have none but i still did it. This trail kicked my ass i almost endoed a few times. The cacti also sucked i got pricked by one of the sum*****es.
