Riding with back pain! OUCH!!
First let me say Hello. I'm new the the forum. I'm from Utah and just started getting into mountain biking. But the problem is I've been getting lower back pains when I'm climbing and riding down. It seems to happen more when I climb. I understand that I'll probably have a little pain. What I'm wondering is, if any of you chaps know anyway to reduce the pain or any changes I can do on my bike.

Yep lots of lower back and stomach work are in order and it will take some time. Lots of good stretching will also help. Might want to check the bike fit too. Good lick.
+1 on all of that! In terms of core body work, include back extensions and crunches. I used to have lower back pain when climbing - after working the core body stuff, it's now just a memory.

For me it was getting a good bike fit when I bought my new bike. I went from a medium frame to a small frame with a setback seatpost, and no more back pain!!!!!
But the other posts are all good suggestions also, I tried them all.
