    Howzit everyone? Stoked to be here!

    I'm a 37 year old noob to this sport. I live on Cape Cod in MA. Right now I ride a 2012 Specialized Hardrock. I've only ripped local single track so far but def wish to expand.

    I want a full suspension bike under $2K to ride single track and some park/downhill. I can get out daily on trails and probably twice a month for park/DH.

    WHAT BIKES DO YOU SUGGEST? KONA, GT, Santa Cruz are on my radar...

    Other:
    Looking for a good adult skills camp/clinic in NE.
    Not good with the maintenence/mechanic side of things....looking for a clinic on this too.
    In decent shape from surf, snowboard and longboarding.
    Will need to purchase full face helmet, shoes, body armor
    I've got no clue on terminology or components...yet!

    many thanks! :thumb:

    Not too familiar with the NE downhill scene. Maybe post in the DH section and someone from the area might be able to give some solid advice.

    Bike also just released their annual "Bible" and they have reviews of bikes.
