Hi, my name is Steve and I live in the SF bay area.

I am getting back into riding after an 8 year hiatus from racing. I have a new 2010 stumpjumper expert carbon with a few upgrades that I ride a couple times a week, and a steelman road bike for cruising around on.

I look forward to meeting some great people on the forum and getting some advice as well.

Hi guys I'm from Leavenworth KS. I just started riding a few months ago. I was riding a Trek 4300 but am now riding a Gary Fisher Rig which feels like a huge improvement. I am starting to get into xc racing, have only done one race so far, none on the new bike yet. I need to get my five posts in so i can start making threads and asking questions.

Hello.

I'm from Scottsboro, Alabama. I just bought my first bike yesterday, a used Trek 820 ST with a 16" frame. Now, the wife and kids want in, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible.

I haved a Cannondale F300
I have been riding bikes all my life. Got caught up in the freestyle thing in the late 80s early 90s. Got the Cannondale in 96 and rode it alot around town. Decided to pick it back up a few months ago and start riding again.

Hello All!

Been lurking here for a few weeks. Decided to jump into the forum tonight. Truth is, I had a question to ask, but can't start a new thread until I post 5 times! So hello! :) LOL.

I live in the Tampa area. Just getting into riding. Used to ride the heck out bmx bikes as a kid/teen. Now I'm ready to kick it up again at 38 years old! ;)

Cheers!

I'm in the same boat. I get the rule, it just doesn't entirely make sense to me. I'm going to end up posting things that just aren't that meaningful.

1.) Where you are from? Northern Virginia (Herndon to be specific)
2.) What kind of rider do you consider yourself? Probably Intermediate (trail)
3.) How many bikes you own? 2
