Thanks for responding.
As for the bike I ended up with it a Felt Q620. Got it at Golden Bike Shop. Probably the coolest guys I met while looking around at the various local shops. Gonna be some upgrading to do over the next couple years and then I’ll get a FS frame (hopefully like a ellsworth, kona, or rocky mountain) and put all the goodies onto it!
Haven’t hit any of those trails yet. So far I did Waterton Canyon and this little trail next to my apartment though it’s got a hill that I haven’t been able to ride to the top yet! Sad sad! Anyways my legs will get there soon. Probably gonna hit Green Mountain this coming week(end) and then maybe i’ll be going to Deer Creek or White Ranch.
See you out there!
