Hello and thanks for creating such a nice forum. I’ve not seriously ridden a bike my teen years, however I have rented clunky bikes, bought a real clunker, and found a lot of stuff that just didn’t work like I hoped it would. Now my 4 yr old daughter is getting into bikes, I need to lose weight and get more active, so I figured i’d Up my budget and buy a bike from a bike shop. I ended up ordering a Trek Marlin 6 mainly because I liked the ability to lock out the front suspension. I’m looking forward to reading up on gear reviews, trail experiences, and general chit chat of the community. Thanks for having me!
