About Me

I've been on a mountain bike for a long time, but I'm just starting to use them for what they are made for! I'm learning the techniques pretty quick so I figure I'll be a solid intermediate rider soon... plus I'm an adrenaline junkie so it makes learning a lot easier!

  The information you have provided is exactly what I thought. It's more expensive, but I'm pretty sure I will be buying the Trek.  I don't want to spend the extra money, I'm a college student right now, but I know it's going to be worth it in the long run. Thank you for helping…

The guy I was talking to about the giant questioned the changeable tire size.  He said that it probably means it's made to be a 29er, it just allows you to put on 27.5 tires.  He said he assumes it would be less comfortable. There was a rubber ring around the shocks.  He told me to…

I'm going to purchase a new bike today (August 8, 2016), but I'm stuck between two bikes. The first bike is the Giant Anthem 27.5 2 ($2000 on sale) and the second bike is the Trek Fuel EX 5 27.5 Plus ($2400).  Right now I have a Trek 4 Series. I'm just beginning to do…

I'm an enduro lover so this wasn't the place for me. It's like Phaser at Merrell, but more upward inclined...

Hey Jim, It's kind of  funny you leave the comment about the knee guards today.  I was out tonight and got in a small wreck and have a scratched up knee because of it.  Haha! I totally agree with you with the pack.  I purchased a Deuter Race X Air for hiking, but it's working nicely for biking…

What kind of riding do you do fishboy? It's awesome that you're not letting the challenge beat you!  Although, even though I'm an adrenaline junky, I would probably back off a little bit if I got hurt that bad. Hey stumpy, That's a good idea to put everything in my hydration pack.  I have a…

Thanks for getting at me with your experiences and opinions everyone!  Those equipment sites you've provided are really nice to have so I can compare brands, styles, and prices!  I actually have all of them open right now trying to find the right place to buy from... haha! I'm hearing a lot of, "it's up to…

I've been riding bikes for a hobby for many years, both mountain and road, but I finally pushed myself to get into off-road mountain biking. I'm not sure what equipment to buy and I don't want to just go to the top brand and pay the most money for the names. I'm still a college…
