    First Bike Gary Fisher Wahoo (w/Pics)

    Hello again.

    I just got my very first real bike and love it. I was only able to ride it for about 45-60 min before it got dark but I loved it. Man am I out of shape! My legs aren't really that tired but my I kinda took it a little to hard at first and hit my ass a few good times when I was going over a few mounts of dirt around my place . Hopefully my butt gets used to it.

    Anyways it is a Gary Fisher Wahoo. I love it so far. Going riding with a friend of mine for 3 hours or so tomorrow .

    Haha yeah I kinda expected that.

    I did hit a rather large bump foot slipped off the pedal and my ass bone come down on the bar. I luckily was going really slow when I hit it so I was able to get my feet under my quickly and I was able to hold most of my body weight up with my arms but no biggie it is expected.

    My friend and I rode about 18 miles today and it was a lot of fun. We are going again next week. I plan on riding some more by my self during the week though.

    My legs feel pretty good, kinda gooey but not bad. My little mishap last night didn't feel good riding on and it is kinda sore but as lets_roll stated it probably will be sore for a few weeks until I get used to it.

    FYI, you might want to look at another seat. My friend's Fisher's seat is terrible. And the white will turn brown soon . Glad to hear you enjoyed it have fun.

    Agreed with others on the white seat turning brown, mine is slowly heading in that color.
    As far as comfort goes I have no problem with it though, I am sure there are other seats that are more comfortable but for now I am sticking with the "brown" one.

    Just ride without any seat for awhile, put the seat back on, and you'll LOVE it.

    My first real mountain bike (which I still ride, it's only like a year old) is a GF Wahoo Disc. I love it....but man, those new ones look sweet!
