    New member here. HI everybody. Also new bike

    I am a new member here. This looks like an amazing place for bike talk and to learn new things. I am a 26 year old male from maryland. I am getting back into bikeing to help myself get back into shape and also to have some fun. I was in great shape when I was younger and playing ball. To bad I tore my rotator cuff or sle I would be at least in the minors right now


    Ok enough about me. I just got home with a brand new Iron Horse Maverick se which retails for $639.99. I got it for $375.20 plus tax. I think this is an amazing deal!!!! Or maybe not? This bike looks and rides awsome and fits me very well. Looks like it is built like a rock and can take a beating if I decide to dish it out.


    Does anybody have any expericance with this bike? Also did I get a good deal? I will mostly be rideing the C&O canal trail along the potomac river which is hard pack. After a couple months when I start getting back in shape I will start doing more serious rideing. Did I choose a bike that will do the job well?



    Thanks for any info you guys and gals may have to offer.

    welcome!

    just have fun.

    you seem happy with your purchase and you should be.
    as you get more into it (if you decide to ) you can always upgrade parts and what not.

    Ride on

    Thanks for the welcome! Right now I am taking in as much info that I can from this forum. It is loaded with alot of information. I am sure I will have a blast with this bike.

    you will! It's a great time of year to get out too.
    Do you have anyone or groups to ride with?

    if not go to a local shop and ask around.

    any group worth their weight will welcome a new rider.

    it's usually more fun (and safer) to ride w/ friends or a group

    Actually my gf just got a bike also and we will ride together. There may be times when I go out by myself when I feel the urge to ride hard. In which case I will have my nextel on em in case of emergency. The guy that sold me the bike at performance bike is a hard core rider and a bi athalon (sp?) and he was extreamly friendly and very helpfull. I bet if I asked him he would help me out with a group to ride with. Thanks for the good idea. I never thought of that.
