For beginners, light weight and safety is what you should be looking for, beautiful is secondary

This is a few days late, but got out on my bike for the first time last week. IT was fantastic. Took a the shortest trail on Turkey mountain. I had never hiked it so I assumed it would also be the easiest and least technical. HAHAHA I loved it though. Only problem is the stock chain on my bike broke coming back up on the climb. My bike shop got it switched out with a good chain so no biggie.

As my 2nd child was just born, I wont be able to take it out to the trails for awhile. In the mean time, I am riding around my neighborhood to get the strength back in my legs.

Is knarled a gnarlier spelling of gnarled?
