New to the forum

Hi guys, what's up

I'm new to the forum and new to mountain biking too, 25 yo and needs a workout while having fun.
I had a 16" Kona U'Hu, but sold it for $600 yesterday, so I'm in the trade up market for a Dawg.

Just wanna say Hi.

LOL, Hi.

The sport is addicting and while it has its ugly parts (anything having to do with fixing, repairing and buying replacements and of course damaging bikes) its great all around, but you stop riding for a week and have no bike to ride on and you'll be begging cyclists on the trails to let you take their bikes for a spin.

Hey, if you're new to the sport, why'd you sell your bike? For $600 it seems like it would be more than adequate. Just wondering. Anyway, welcome to BF.

Well, I was too impulsive in getting the bike, paid it and discovered that it's a tad too small.

Hey, that beer looks good.
