GA pedal convert

I went to my LBS (as I see it is called) and told the (great) guy that I raced a 250 KTM, and now I wanted to try mountain biking (like how Happy Gilmore was a hockey player who just happens to be golfing).

I told him I never had a good "pedal bike" before, and he informed me that "we just call them bikes."

He sold me a Haro flightline 29er with low end disc brakes and a locking fork for $480 and I hit the single track, and it was like I was born on the thing. (I realize that I've still never had a "good bike" according to most, but to me it's amazing) the next day I bought my girl a Specialized just so she could ride with me.

So now I'm addicted and I thought I'd join a forum in case I had questions.

I'll use the search feature with extreme prejudice, so I probably won't have many posts... But I felt like I'd help ad revenue by not just lurking.
