    New bike!

    Hey guys, after a few weeks of pissing you guys off and doing the "VS" threads, I finally went out today and bought my first real MTB bike. I ditched the Hardrock and went with the Giant Rincon. Its Olive Green and looks nice. All Alivio components and a Suntour fork with 100 mm and preload adjust. The tires are I think what you call semi slicks. They have bumps but not only for mountain; there in between mountain and road tires. The bike altogether was $480. Good price? You tell me.

    Will do my good sir. I think tomorow Im going out to ride it. Do you have suggestions on picture size which you attach? When I take a pic with my camera and upload it to the computer, it is huge. Is there a easier way to change the size other than using MS paint? Thats why the picture is messed up BTW. Paint

    I'd get a free account with photobucket.com. When you upload a picture, it will give you several links below it that you can copy and paste right here in the message box. The one you want is [img]

    It will be adequately sized for you.
