    Hello all,

    Looking to meet locals of Anaheim Hills to show me the ropes.

    In the market to buy my first mountain bike. I've been lucky enough to have a few friends that have let me use their extra bikes and its time for me to purchase my own.

    Welcome aboard. I'm out on the west end of town by Knott's. Once you get a bike take a gander at the Trailhead forum. There are tons of riding opportunities within a 45 minute drive. Some are even within pedaling distance.

    EDIT: Glad to see you got an avatar, even if it's not bike-related. :whistling:

    Cheers, @Erckalf, and welcome to a solid group. The OC contingent is strong, so stay tuned.

    I'll second this. It might seem like a "waste" of money, but a substandard bike plus its replacement costs more. :)
