    hey all im new to it all

    hey all i been biking (properly) for about 3 - 4 weeks and i have tried everything (street, dirt, vert, flatland the lot of it) but it wasnt until today that i tried mountain bikeing and now i absolutley love it !
    i started off with a roughly smooth but dam steep long bit off grass and went down that for a while
    then i moved on to down a steep hill in the woods with rocks andcrap on the ground and it was dam sdcary but very fun
    then i tried this reallly long really steep rock path all was going well untill about halfway down i hit this rock that was a bit bigger than the rest but i hadnt seen it and so i wasnt expecting it and it jolted me real bad, my feet came off the pedels and so (natural human reaction i spose) i slamed on the back brakes.
    normally this would have been fine but the new bike i got the tyres had hardly any grip on them at all so the bike slid round from under me and i went flying
    i got gashed up pretty bad but it was all round fun and now i am sticking with mountain bikeing (and gettin some new tyres !! )

    dont ask why i said all of this it was just my way of saying hi to every 1 hear.

    oh yea and i have been practising for about the last 20 mins and i can do that thiing where you hop up stairs (not bunny hop) but where you hop up the front/back tyre then the other tyre and do that up the stairs. i can do it on anything up to about 2 inches high from a standstill and about 1 ft high not standing still

    If you thinking about recording the rides, have you looked at specially designed cameras to fit on your helmet? Here is the link if you are interested….>>>> http://shop.viosport.com/
