      Hi everyone I am new to the MTB scene, I just got a Giant Boulder, I traded my Shovelhead BMX bike in for it. any info on the bike or beginner tips would be helpful, looking for riders in the Gastonia, Charlotte NC area.

      thanks man I have taken it riding twice now once on Poston Park MTB Trails which is the first trail I rode and is suprisingly crazy for a first time MTBer. The other time was at North Meck Park in Huntersville, NC which was better to learn on than Poston Park. I really enjoyed it I have to work all the way till next thursday but im off next friday, saturday, and sunday, if anyone from the Charlotte, Gastonia area wants to ride.

      welcome to the addiction of mountain biking. My first trail bike was a Giant Boulder SE hard tail. Have you gone to clip in pedals yet? If not, that would be the best thing to do first. I basically learned mountain biking on my Boulder, but once I got addicted, I had to upgrade to a full suspension GT idrive, but the Boulder is a good bike to start with.

      If you ever make it up to Greensboro, be sure to check out the Wild Turkey trail, Owls Roost, Bald Eagle & Reedy Fork. In that order!
