    MTB Newbies

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I was going to post on the "What kind of MTB do you have?" thread, but I don't have a MTB.

    I just had my first off-road experience this weekend, and I was riding a Bianchi Avenue hybrid...

    I *LOVED* it. Loved being in the woods, loved how physical it was, loved that I managed not to fall on my head...

    My bike held up very well over the harrowing roots and rocks and such-like - there were some places that were a little too 'technical' for me to ride over them, but it was amazing fun, and such a different way to ride for me.

    I suspect I am going to leave the roads more often in the future...

    So, howdy!

    Hmmm... whatever you do, do not, repeat, do not test ride a full suspension bike. No bunny hops, no curb jumping...

    Lol

    You dirty girls crack me up....
    It starts with a test ride and goes (sorry I have to say it), it goes downhill from there.

    welcome to the fold....

    Hahaha fbg. I don't want to admit how many times I've found myself thinking "you know, if I maxxed out both credit cards, I could buy a really sweet double bouncer..." I love my hardtail dearly, but I think I have latent downhill tendencies that would be so much better catered for with a good five inches on the rear.
    Drink coffee and do stupid things faster with more energy.

    I got my custom hardtail last winter. Since then, my DH got a FS bike that he loves and I've been secretly lusting for one also. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE of hardtail, but I really want a FS also. I guess I just want one of every type of bike

    tikiwi: If you saw me from the back, you would know I don't need another five inches on the rear... heh heh

    I'm hoping for a full suspension by... summer's end???

    Hope this passes the appropriate police:
