Hello from Spain

Hello,

I'm Francisco, from Valencia (Spain), I have registered myself in the forum because I want to learn more about road cycling and mountain bike (I really love downhills). I started years ago cycling, but this summer has been the one I used the most my bicycle and I loved it even more than I did then. I've read this forum for years as it has more content than the spanish ones, and I've thought that is the time to register in it for the first time.

As a data, I'm 6'1.5'' and I weigh almost 170 pounds.

Thank you very much!

Thank you so much. I think my english level isn't too bad. I have never used the translator in order to understand the topics of this forum.

I had one Hador (spanish brand) mountain bike and another mountain bike with no brand someone gave me. Both of them were 26'' size. The first one was too little for me (I'm almost 6'2'') and the second one (the one I used) broke in the last day of my holidays (it was too old), so I am looking for a new one to buy, maybe the Rockrider 500, size 26'', 300 dollars and size XL.

Bienvenido! Your English is quite good, better than my Spanish. We were in Spain this summer but made a northern loop (Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Cedeira, Gijon, Bilbao, Zaragoza, Barcelona). Next time I hope to see the southern coast and visit your city.

Thanks!

I have a B2 level, but nothing more, hahaha. That's good! That cities are more beautiful than Valencia -or most of them, because I've been in some of the ones you've mentioned-, but Southern coast is . Despite this, I love the mountain and the cold so much more, as I spend my summers in villages in Teruel and Cuenca (at a height from 2.500 to 5000 feet over the sea level).
