    So I got my new bike today

    After about 8 years of not owning a bike (well, not riding at least), I got a 2003 GF Hoo Koo E Koo today at the LBS. I was looking at some of the Cannondale F-series, and the GF Tassajara, but then the shop I went to today had last year's model HKEK for $699, and I couldn't pass it up. Pretty much the same as this year, I think, except for the Manitou fork (over the RS). Don't really know what type of biking I'll be doing, but I didn't want to limit myself by going with a "hybrid" (definately not a road bike), so I went with the MTB. Plenty of bike for a rebeginner, now all I need is the stamina.

    Nice bike man, and just keep riding. You will be in shape sooner than you think.

    nice choice on a starter. Not too little bike where you cant advance with it, but not enough where you might not grow into it

    Pics, we need pics.

    ***Unwritten rule around here. New bikes require pics to be posted, so we can share in the drool!!!!*****

    Sidenote: we prefer muddy post ride pics!!!

    Cool bike man, as A2 said, muddy pics are now required!

    So you don't know what kind of riding you're gonna do huh? Well what's your first ride plan lookin like? Gonna hit the dirt? Mess around urban with it? A long road-ride? Huck off a 50 foot cliff? Enter an XC race?

    As long as your riding is all that matters, oh and a smile while doing it! Good luck!
    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    Mael, I'm just a humble moderator. I can only make suggestions to Joe. However, I do agree, it "SHOULD" be a rule or at least a "SUGGESTION".

    I've gone out in the woods behind my house a few times now, and it was damn fun. I like playing in the dirt.

    I'll post a pic ASAP.

    Took a few pictures of the bike. I enjoy riding at night, and need to find a new headlight.

    When sh*t hits the fan, everything I'm not, made me everything I am.
