GA pedal convert
I went to my LBS (as I see it is called) and told the (great) guy that I raced a 250 KTM, and now I wanted to try mountain biking (like how Happy Gilmore was a hockey player who just happens to be golfing).

I told him I never had a good "pedal bike" before, and he informed me that "we just call them bikes."

He sold me a Haro flightline 29er with low end disc brakes and a locking fork for $480 and I hit the single track, and it was like I was born on the thing. (I realize that I've still never had a "good bike" according to most, but to me it's amazing) the next day I bought my girl a Specialized just so she could ride with me.

So now I'm addicted and I thought I'd join a forum in case I had questions.

I'll use the search feature with extreme prejudice, so I probably won't have many posts... But I felt like I'd help ad revenue by not just lurking.

SETRA and SORCS mostly. SETRA races at a few GNCCs, Big Buck and The General. I am in grad school now, so I don't get to race, but hopefully I can race my mountain bike if I can train twice a week. Dirt biking takes so much more time and money, and the reward for mountain biking seems greater per time spent.

I'll be in GA. next week to ride at Highland park or at AMP than my son and I are going to race a GNCC at Park City KY.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 04:17 AM.
