    As in Next Hyper Shocker? If so you'll just want to be extra cautious taking gaps and going downhill and maybe single track in general. Have fun!

    behind you, don't wait up.
    welcome!
    this bike isn't really built to ride any real off road trails. ride a lot, be careful and upgrade when you can.

    bbut glowing Walmart reviews, shocker price and kickstand!

    What others said, ride it but don't take it to real trails. It will hurt you.

    Well, no, if you're just getting into it, ride it until you destroy it, then look for a decent used bike.

    you might find an older, used hardtail for $300. new stuff at that price won't last on the trails. you should start saving your $$$. oh, and welcome to the RM
