    Hi all, my name is Rocky. I'm 42, I live in Lakewood, CA. I'm brand new to mountain biking, I'm hoping this forum will answer all my questions about mounting biking. See you guys in the forums!

    Rocky. My wife asked if I cleaned the back yard. I was bummed, I went out there thinking she built me a single-track. I had nothing, Welcome.

    Thanks J! I'm brand new, no bike. I'm here to find out what kind of riding is a good match for me. Honestly, before I started snooping around the forum, and watching yt videos I thought I had an idea of what mountain biking was. It's waaay faster and more dangerous than I thought.

    It's only as fast and dangerous as you make it. Unfortunately most of the videos you watch are not really how most of us ride.

    Really? I had a hunch. Brings me to questions about trail etiquette.

    Welcome @ROCKY. Gotta be careful on that FLoop, it's taken out many a rider.:oops:

    Post up when you get a bike, I'm in Anaheim and ride the FLoop. A lot.

    I'll chime in on recommending you get a decent hardtail for starters. Heck, I rode the FLoop for almost a year on a Walmart Schwinn. 'Course, I've done it on a road bike too.:whistling:
