Hi! Just thought I'd introduce myself, since it's my 1st time here. My name's Stephanie. I just got my new haro mountain bike, and I'm still in the process of breaking it in. Hopefully i'll be back in practice with it by the time we go to arkansas for the trails in a few weeks I havn't been mountain biking in a few years (I used to live in Littleton, Colorado which is in the foothills of the Rockies...so I did a whole lot of amateur mountain biking ) since I moved to Texas, but my boyfriend and I have been riding around on some local bike paths trying to get ready for the trip.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for keeping your knees from hurting. Although I have a feeling that it's mostly genetics causing it.. (even though I'm only 19, I have some joints issues which I first noticed in martial arts a few years ago... and my mother also had a lot of problems as young as 17 ) my knees are really -really- sore after biking. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that, or if anyone had any experience with biking around the Hot Springs area.
Nice to meet everyone!
