*waves* Hallo.

Erm...I guess basics. Ignoring childhood biking (which, as usual, ended when I got my driver's license), I've been pedalling for the last 4 years. As soon as I get decent and comfortable with where I'm at in my cycling ability, I go out and do something incredibly stupid (rinse, wash, repeat). gotta learn somehow. I'm in western NC, live (more or less) out in the country, and am considered by my family to be a psycho-commuter. (into town and back is at least 30 miles minimum.)

Current bikes are a Surly Cross-Check with road triple cranks, mountain cassette (it's the mountains...some of those hills are out to get you!) and a Jamis Exile. I've just started getting into mountain biking, so (true to form) the first thing I did was attempt the Kitsuma Trail. (i told you i did stupid things to accelerate the learning curve.) Erm...I'm typing, so I didn't die...but I walked about half of it.

Eh...don't know what else to say without rambling. Hi.

Hi there, Cheshire. I'm sure BikeForums will help with those learning curves! I'm jealous of your Cross-Check, as it's one of the many bikes that I covet but cannot buy due to both financial and geographical reasons

You'll feel right at home in the commuting forum, and you might want to check out the mountain biking forum for tips before your next ride
