Woohoo, new bike, back on the trails

After an injury in 2007 I had to quit XC riding because it agitated my injury too much, I've been road riding and it is boring! Well now that it is 1/4 into 2009 I decided to get another mountain bike to see if I could hack it offroad again, and I can. I've been having a blast on the technical trails a quarter mile from my house as often as possible.

The bike I bought is a nashbar SS 29er (non-badged SE Racing stout) and love it. I was going to build a surly karate monkey but the 499-35% convinced me to get this one, I'm glad I did. It doesn't feel cheap in the least bit.

Bikes: I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.
