I grew up riding mtb in gambrill, endless trails for every skill level. Recently I’ve kicked around the idea of getting back into it.

As a non-suspension tuner type who's too lazy to bother learning I thought this was funny but it's mountain bike related so I'm throwing it in this thread.

It also had this comment right at the bottom:
I don't understand what any of the knobs do anyways. I just fiddle with them when I see my friends do it to fit in.

I'm probably going to the frederick watershed tomorrow with my mtb.

:lol2: My forks have a lock and unlock knob. And a preload knob that does nothing. The lock /unlock feature is neat.

I haven't gotten out nearly as much as I was hoping to have. Mostly because it seems to be raining every 5 minutes :dry:

We'll see how often I get out on the mtb, there are a bunches of trails about half an hour from home and seems like there are unofficial spots that I could go to from without even loading up... I just bought the thing (regular price $1300, I got it for $600 :cheers: ). I run or ride a bicycle every single day but I've got a treadmill and an indoor trainer on days I just don't feel like going outside and it's obviously not fun going nowhere indoors.

One plus with the mtb I got is that there's no tuning the rear suspension as it hasn't got any. :lol2: Some day I really should learn how to tune my motorcycle suspension though...

I haven't even messed with my forks on my MTB. The bicycle shop guy did talk me into a hard tail bike, so at least I don't have to play with that.
