Welcome to the site...

If you really wanna learn something try starting a thread entitled: "Rock Shox Boxxers are the best forks ever!" or "All single pivot bikes suck a$$"

welcome....

and like we've been trying to pound into Oreo's head (lol), big suspension bikes arent needed for jumping and such. A good sturdy hardtail with good geometry and a decent sturdy suspension fork can take you alot of places and give you a solid skills base.

nothing worse than seeing kids on huge FS rigs who dont have basic skill sets yet....

Better yet, 25-40 year olds on big-huge-tank bikes that cost more than I make in a year with no skills (and entering beginner class at DH races).

those are the worst. the 35 year olds on your local downhill trail on m1's with dorado's walking the section you just bombed on your hardtail.

sorry to hear about your low paying job beau :p
haha. atleast your not a complete SOB. like some of the guys i was describing. older dudes riding is cool, but not when they act like they know everything because of how much their bike cost.
