So I have been reading these forums and since I just got back from the LBS i figure this would be an appropriate first post. After hearing my buddies talk about their MTB for so long, reading these forums, and watching some youtube videos it seemed like a fun way to get/stay fit, So I finally decided to give it a shot.

I just got back from purchasing a 2011 Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 29. I was a little hesitant to go with a 29 right out of the gates but the guy at the LBS assured me I would like it and if I don't he said they would take it back and let me use that money towards something else so I figured what the hell.

Any thoughts on this as a first bike? Something I can grow a little with?

I love my 29er. I'm a big guy and small wheels just don't work for me. just ride...you'll figure it out as time goes on.

Only bad news was it needed to be ordered but hopefully will be here before next weekend.
Maybe a stupid question, but you DID test ride before you plunked down cash right? :confused:

If so I'm hoping you were only a slight difference off from what they ordered???
