Yesterday gave me a good chance to introduce a co-worker/friend to MTB, and also give someone something in the Christmas giving spirit. I was riding aroung our road and went by his house, he came outside to wish me and my family a merry xmas and I did the same, then he admired my bike and said "I wish I had a bike to ride" and went on then I went back home as he did to be with our familys. Well, I have allot of extra parts in the garage, an extra frame to make a good starter MTB bike, so I decided to build it up and give it to him. It took me about 2hrs to get everything right, then I rode it over to his place and knocked on his door. He was surprised to see me again and then I showed him the bike and said "Merry Christmas". The look on his face was priceless, the excitement to be able to ride and he was very thankful to get such an item. I told him he had to be careful what he wished for, he just might get it. Anyway, I have more room in my garage, I shared my MTB passion, I have a new riding buddy and made someone happy. That's my Idea of the Christmas Spirit. Everyone be safe and have a great holidays.

Cool. That's a great way to get someone hooked on the passion.... and a really terrific example of the true Christmas spirit. Thanks.

Thanks Mike,
I did it on the spurr of the moment. That's how it happened. He already has up-gradeitus because he wants disks (I did not have any extra, only v's) but he has a good bike to start out with. I'll steer him to the Avids and a good wheelset, then teach him how to work on his new bike.
BTW, what did Santa bring you and Mrs T? Elina found a bath toy and a easel with a dry erase/magnetic board and a chalk board on the other side with a bunch of magnetic letters/numbers under the tree, and a electric Hummer truck in the garage (ride-in type). Junko has a new watch and a gift card and I got a new timex.
Anyway, stay warm up there in Canniduh and feed the "Junko's" well.

That's a cool story

So how did his first rides go?
I posted a similar intro to passion post around turkey day for my brother. I just got off the phone with him tonight. His whole x-mas weekend was full of riding. He tells me he brings his bike with him on his out of town jobs to ride at houston and austin Texas. I guess he is hooked. I hope your freind burns up the passion also!
