    I've been saving to get a hard tail and was set on one, but I'm not complaining. I'll still get one eventually...

    It was my sisters and her friend had it for a while but we finally got it back. She lives in Kauai so it's mine for now. Let me know what you guys think. I'm a rodie trying to get into MB'n.

    I ride a 58 cm on a road bike but on this one the frame is 18.5?

    My sister is sort of short. Should I go get sized up for it? Can I still ride it fine? Is this a pretty nice bike? (It sure looks like it!) and what exactly is it made for? I know the trails around here that I wanted to ride are nothing to strenuous. Will I look like a fool if I putz around with a full suspension? (Not to mention my roadie jersey and helmet)





    Also, let me know everything I should know. Do's and don'ts...
