New bike!

So I just got into riding again, last time I really rode a bike I was 13.. (18 now)

Looked all over the LBS and checked out a buncha places online. Finally decided on an Ironhorse Warrior 3.3 (Canada only model) It seemed to have the best components for the price and a frame I liked, so I jumped the gun and bought it.

Just picked it up earlier today and took it out for an enjoyable few hours to break it in. So far I did find a few problems which can be easily fixed (mainly derailer adjustments) Overall I'm pretty happy with the bike and I'm sure I'll enjoy it even more once I get the small things fixed. The bike cost $600 before tax and they gave me the fender for free (yay?).

Here she is, not too dirty since it was dry on 95% of the trails.

New bikes own and free anything is good. The bike, overall, looks good, i say ditch the reflectors.

How powerful are the brakes?

Oh yeah I'll be taking off the deflectors tomorrow when I get more time (had to rush in to work)

The brakes are Haynes MX4 and work great, I can lock both the front and back tire easily from a high speed (although I'm a rather lightweight rider)

The fork is a Rockshox Dart1 (100ml travel) which seems to be calibrated really well for my weight.

I believe the derailers are Alivio front and back but I have a bad memory so not positive
