Hello everyone, I am new to these forums and mountain biking.
I would have posted this in the beginner's forum but looks like it does not have any viewers.

I basically started biking because it looks like allot of fun and I needed a healthy hobby. I just purchased a 07 Ironhorse maverick to start off with for now. My goal is to get into DH and FR once I get comfortable and in better shape. I am not in bad shape now, being an infantryman I tend to stay as strong and fit as my job requires. Although since I started riding I noticed just how out of shape my lower body is and stamina as well.

When I get good enough I daydream of building on an Ironhorse sunday or Nicolai frame, have not decided which Nic frame yet.

I live in Tacoma, WA and if anyone that lives in or around the area feels like welcoming me into a group or what-not, let me know.

My job also requires me to be CLS (combat life saver ) qualified. That is pretty much a battlefield form of first-aid. So maybe I can be valuable to have around for those nasty crashes. :cheers:



pic of my bike, my photogenic daughter seems to like it.

welcome to the monkey. just remember to keep a thick skin because alot of these guys are pretty ruthless. good bike choice, just keep an eye on the rear triangle for cracks.

Thank you for the advice and I will keep an eye on the rear triangle. If I notice cracks, you have any suggestions for a course of action? I am thinking just refer to the warranty or would it be better to take it to a local welder or bike shop?

you can warranty it through your local shop. im guessing you bought it at performance? if you did they will probably give you a new frame straight away

Loco is a whiner. Give him negative rep when he complains about somthing.

Not surprisingly, he's also a woman. And he likes to bake.

If you ever do anything stupid, don't hesitate to post it up. We won't make fun of you. Really.

If you ever need advice on tattoos, ask lovebunny.

I was kidding earlier, n8 is actually the most helpful and productive member of the board.

Post as much porn as possilble. The mods like that.

Related to the suggestion above, do not post goat porn. Only pinkshirtphotos likes that.

robdamanii is never sarcastic, and you should always believe everything he says.

Feel free to spell things incorrectly, and use improper grammar. Nobody cares.

I owe you a half dozen


good stuff!










Cool! Rep square Tetris!



I expect you to make good on that, BTW. :busted:



While I'm at it, I might as well make this post worthwhile:


Music: If Narlus likes it, it's probably crap.

If you're looking into buying a 29er, talk to Wumpus.

If you need calculus help, send pinkshirt a PM.

If you ever want to rant about creationism being a fairy tale believed by adults, send cheetahprowlerdh a PM. He'd love to hear it.

jonkranked's room mate is the coolest person ever.

BurlyShirley wants to PIIHB. And by "H" I mean Rex Grossman.

Blue is the ultimate hipster.

CritEastwood is all knowing.

All Knowing, however, is not.
