I'll play along, i'm a major noob at riding here is a photos of me and a couple of very not-noob buddies. I want to sell my bighit(silver bike) and get something light like SX Trail or Kona Dawg. What bike you ride man? Any suggestion I want something light enought to pedal, but still have fun on challenging trails.

portal trail off Poison Spider in Moab?

I'm still dragging around my 06 Kona Stinky Supreme. Love it. Have an overbuilt Yeti 575 for shuttles like Porcupine Rim, etc. Prolly selling that this season. Intentionally not looking at all the sick new DH rigs for lack of $$. Kona Coilair seems like a great Utah pedal/huck rig, though. I've got a buddy who goes pretty damn big on his Transition Covert also, which is intended for some pedaling. Then again, I've seen friends in Grand Junction, CO dropping over 6-8' on 4-6" bikes. These people usually have larger DH bikes. Seems like the 6-7" travel range is the sweet spot for pedal freeride bikes, along with the slackest geometry you can live with on the climbs.

Yep thats portal and buddy of mine riding the "Notch" at porcupine on his firebird pivot rental. I've been thinking of something along the lines of 6-7" inch bike. My bighit got a 888 fork (the old fork replaced that lefty in the second picture) and some heavy tires, I swear it weights 50+ pounds. Its just frustrating to always slug behing pushing that heavy bike up the hill or even on the straights sometimes.

BTW one day i'll make it to whistler, that place just looks awesome.

How do you guys transport your bike when going to Whistler, or do you drive? Gotta be a hell of a drive though.

One day, I envision strapping on my man-dex and riding my bikesdirect.com hardtail down some sweet descents.

True story.

guys, I've never ridden a mountain bike, when I was a teenager I used to ride a BMX bike (I still have it at my parents), but I never really rode BMX track I just liked trail riding mostly, although there were hardly any good trails in FL. But there was one I used to ride in pretty often that was pretty fun...

Anyways, now I live in Atlanta and I figure there should be some good trails around the outer areas.

So what kind of mountain bike should I get as a starter? I was thinking a hard-tail...

I almost want to pick up another BMX bike as I'm used to the small-ness of that kind of bike and I'm kinda small myself @ 5'7 155...

Any advice for a newb is cool.

Hallmark trailer. 23.5 hr drive. Not too bad. Some people just ship to a shop in that area and reassemble. Not sure what I'll do next time. Hopefully flying! USA Cycling offers bike box airfare discounts with a seasonal racing license.


It was nice to have jump bikes, dh bikes, AND trail bikes. Along with all the gear we could ever want! Not a cheap way to travel though. It took about a half hour coming back through customs. We ferried over to the island and back also. Great rides over there too. Made having the full rig more worth it.

I put it on the back of my Impreza and drive it there. Of course I'm only an hour and a bit away from Whistler
