I'm the new guy

Hi, I've been lurking around the forums for the last couple of months thinking about getting back into biking. I pedald everyday from 13y/o till about 18 on an old steel frame Kona. I loved that bike, it's still in the basement collecting dust. The front shock went out on it and I decided to get a new bike. Ended up getting a Schwinn Homegrown '00 model. After four months and a handful of good accidents I quit riding for four years. Here I am again. I'm wayyyy out of shape and have since lost my riding partner but I'll be doing things solo. Ended up buying an '06 Giant XTC Composite. The coulpe of rides the weather has permited have been wonderful and I can't wait for more. Well, thats my story and the boss is prowling the office.

Happy riding,
atroobloo
