So, my new ride came in on Friday, Kona Hoss 22" and today will be my frist ride when I get home from the office. Cannot wait-

I hesitated to ride this weekend due to the weather, but I am pretty siked.
Just had to share.

so the first ride came and went. hit a few of the trails i used to ride back in middle/high school and let me say that they seem much harder now...lol. Anyway, here is my review. Within 5 minutes on the bike, I managed to get the chain to slip off the front cassette while changing gears. Had to manually put that back on. I guess if it keeps happening I should bring it back to the LBS for some tuning. Other than that, I tooled around for about 45 minutes and starting really feeling the burn. Started getting dark so had to head back.
The other thing I noticed, was a little bit of chain rub coming from the front derailleur, not sure if this is normal or not.

Ready for day two I say.

btw. If my lingo is off, let me know and bare w/ me as I am new to all of this.

Thanks.

Adjustments needed

Glad to hear you like the bike. Enjoy it in good health. I would take the bike back to the LBS and have the front derailleur looked at before it gets any worse. Probably a minor adjustment, but you want (and deserve) the bike to be in tip-top shape.

The sprockets at the front are usually referred to as chainrings.

The front derailleur will need a small adjustment, but there is no need to worry. It should not be a big deal.

If the LBS does not tune it to your liking, people here will help you out.

Ah yes, you like to feel the burn. haha. More rides=more fun.
