Have been ridin' cross country and freeride for about ten years, but decided it was time for more of a downhill bike. Bought an 06 Big Hit III; don't know where to find advice on safety equipment, things I should know about how to ride, where to ride, or anything else. Suggestions would be much appreciated. None of my buddies ride downhill...
Thanks !
