Hello my name is Smitty and I am a gravity sled junkie. 😃
Although after being on a few trails here in Great Falls the need for a more all mountain/freeride bike is a must.
Current ride is a 2005 Giant DH Comp with many upgrades.
USAF for last 20 years, ready to retire when the next job comes along.
I have a small Mtn Bike forum that I started with a group of riders in Germany, http://www.b40huckers.com and now most of us are in the USA.
Thats about it.

Welcome back to the US B40. Thanks for spending the last 20 years keeping us safe here. 😀 Bet theres some pretty good riding in Montana, downhill or cross-country. Enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome fellas, I will enjoy this site for sure.
Took the DH for a ride here yesterday and damn thing does not pedal up hill well at all. lol
Think I am going to try and trade in for a Giant Reign 6.0 as I think it will be a better all purpose bike for me.

Welcome to Singletracks, B40!
Yeh, I was in Germany (Mannheim) for 3 years as mentioned. Cut my teeth on mountainbiking while I was there.
I recently demo’ed a ReignX, and I gotta say…. it’s a sweet ride. Even with 6.7" of travel, it pedals very well uphill. Much better than my 40lb Nomad. 😏

Hello and thanks, yeah I think the Reign is the way to go for me.
I am from Pueblo Co so you are close to where I grew up…I miss it thats for sure.
As for Germany its where I cut my teeth in DH, also cut my shins, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, skull…ha ha yeah I am accident prone. 😃
