hey hey from NC

hey everyone, i'm josh from raleigh, nc! i recently decided that i wanted to get into biking so here i am...right now i'm interested in trail riding but would LOVE to get into some more hard-core riding in the future...i'm 27 years old, love the outdoors, and love to get my adrenaline pumping...i know absolutely NOTHING about biking, so i hope to learn a lot from all of you here, from your greatest experiences to your greatest mistakes...i'm a big dude, 6' 2" and 245 pounds, so i'll definitely be looking for some insight from any of the other big boys out there about bike parts and riding technique and any other words of wisdom that you might be able to share...looking forward to interacting with you all!

Hey, check out the Clydesdale/Athenas forum. It's a place specifically for the 'big dogs', with a lot of good advice and friendly folks.
