New Bike!!!!!!!!

I picked up my new bike yesterday, Friday October 21. Its the Gary Fisher Tassajara Disc 06 and my shoes came in the mail today today. I was learning how to clip and unclip in the basement and its quite fun. Tomorrow I might go on a trail if it doesnt rain. Sorry but no pics at the moment, my brother took the digital camera to college.

Alright, I posted the new post during the maintenance and I guess it didn't update fully so I'm updating it again.

No way. It's a XC bike. i.e. not a jumping bike. Technically spreaking, you could get air on a tricycle, but I really wouldn't want to do it. Or probably anybody else.

I do XC riding and I don't know how a fork is "supposed" to feel but I guess its nice. It also has an air valve and the Fisher site says its air sprung. However the Manitou website seems to have a different version. The brakes are also nice too but only one side of the brake pads move which pushes the rotor into the other pad but it provides plenty of stopping power. I suggest you test ride it first (which I didn't get to because it was raining that day but I sat on it).

I take it off some ramps and I do bunny hop with it but nothing extreme.
Lol I want to press that air valve even though I don't have a fork pump now.

edit- Changed "air pump" to "fork pump now".
