About Me

After being athletic most of my life (Swimming, LaCrosse, Soccer, Tae Kwon Do were my best sports) and I decided to get into MTB at age 50. My objective is to have fun riding . . . and helping others to have fun riding. Jumps? Sure, at some point. Racing? Not what I'm looking for. Rolling through the woods, clilmbing & decending while checking out nature? YEZ PLZ! Hope to help you soon.

But when it's time to climb the…

I . . . Kind of want this bike now. At 6'5" (+/- hair) I'd fall in the XXL category. I don't have the cash for a carbon bike and I was thinking the "next bike" I chase would be the Full Stache. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE my Stache 7 and plan…
