chicago rider trying to "get back into it"


I'm living on the north side of the Windy City. Just got a new Specialized FSRxc (just finishing replacement of most of the crap-tastic components). My goal is to ride more. Currently I tend to turn the wrench a lot more than I turn the cranks. Since I live in a big city in the flat midwest I do exclusively XC riding, non-competative. When I ride, my riding style is mostly casual, though I do get a kick out of "technical" riding: clearing small trees, roots, stumps, creeks etc. There are actually a lot of forest preserves in and around the city and one nice national park called Palos, I have to plan those trips though.

Anyhow that's me in bike terms.

Hi, Ry

Welcome to the forum from the far south 'burbs. Do you get out to Palos very often?
