Just wanted to say hello to everyone. Just joined the forums.

Extremely new rider here. Bought a used Trek 4300 to start off with. Have been riding everyday this past week at some local trails (Faulkner Park in Tyler, Tx) and I'm hooked! :thumbsup: I come from (and still do it) road racing various cars. I've noticed alot of similarities between the two in terms of weight distribution, straight line braking vs trailbraking, traction management, momentum, apexing corners, and LOOKING AHEAD.

I have plans to race at the Tyler Speed Waves in November. I figure this should give me a goal to work towards.

I've been reading and reading as many tips as possible, but would be open to any other details that anyone would like to share.

Glad to meet everyone,

Joe

Hello to a fellow Texan. I'm down in Austin. I see you've got the bug now too haha

If you are ever down in Austin, there are a bunch of fantastic trails and tons of helpful people who love showing other riders around.
