    Hi and welcome. I wouldn't go so far to say that there are "many" experts here. There are definitely some experts here but the rest of us are hacks and/or give bad advice.

    What kind of mountain biking do you do and where do you typically ride?

    during your stay on bikeforums, you will come across some new language you are probably not familiar with. an example word is "cheeto." A verb. It means to destroy.

    have fun

    Santiago is right. There's a handful of experts but mostly "experts" and then lots of smartasses like myself that offer next to no help, and as mentioned above we have Cheeto. Enjoy and do yourself a favor and don't take things said here personally or too seriously. Otherwise you'll never return and enjoy the full experience that is THE bikeforums. And welcome!
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    Don't take things too personal. The Mountain Biking forum is rather polite compared to other more popular forum.

    Post picture of your ride(s) or you don't exist.
