Hello there!

Hi all-
My name is Scott and I am glad to have found this forum. I used to cycle a lot years ago and I have just gotten back into it over the last few years. I'm loving it! I have a 2012 Crosstrail that is just about worn out, and a 2016 Norco Charger hardtail 29er. Looking to add a gravel/cyclocross bike to the mix. I ride about 800-1200 miles a year, mostly on rails-to-trails rides and a little offroad.

Thanks- Scott

Welcome aboard the BF site, Scott, we certainly have some forums right up your alley. Glad to have you join in with us here. As fast as the Gravel Bike movement is growing you should have lots of friends to join in with.

Wow Scott, that seems like a lot of fun. I was looking into a gravel bike (they are much lighter than I thought they would be) but I won't make much use of it.

Enjoy, and welcome!

thanks for the welcome everyone! I tried to buy a 2015 Kona Jake last night and it turns out the had goofed on the inventory - they didn't have any left! They promptly refunded my money and I'm back on the search.

Scott

Don't give up your search for a Snake, those are some great bikes. I'm glad to hear that you had a good experience as far as finding someone with proper service in refunding your money and not trying to persuade to take something you didn't want.
