Back on a bike again... feels good

Hi folks,

I actually joined the forum about two years ago when I was shopping for a bike to get back into riding. A very good friend of mine suggested that this is where I should do my research. I did the research, but alas I never pulled the trigger and bought anything.

This has changed... I've been watching craislist for the right kind of bike for me for some time. Last night I saw an ad for an older Trek 830 mountain bike with a small frame. (16.5") I'm five foot six.

I picked it up today and it feels good and seems to be in good condition.

So I thought that I'd jump on here and share my good fortune. I tried to take a picture, but my camera battery was dead. I'll share pics later.
