hello all! i have spent the last 5 years riding 2,500 miles a year on a road bike. The local "rail to trail" has been my place for most of those miles. Early this spring after already putting in a few hundred miles on the bike i realized that i needed something new. So i decided to get into mountain biking for a different view and something new! im glad i did! I live in the dayton ohio area which isnt the best for mtn biking but we make it work. OH and this is also my first post to the boards!
