Quick Introduction

Postby JonRHD » Mon May 06, 2013 1:24 pm

Hello!

I am just getting into Mountain Biking (used to road bike way back in the day) and so far it is great! I am riding a bit oldschool with a Cannondale Killer V900. I've been lurking here and reading for some time and thought that I should register and say "hi".


Thanks!

Welcome! Interesting frame on that Cannondale! They have always come up with the unique designs. Definitely a functional hard tail though!

After looking at all of their products over the years, I'm convinced that Alice jumped down the rabbit hole because she was a scout for Cannondale and looking for designers for their products.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes!

Yeah...Cannondales have always looked kind of freaky lol. I love it though...its fast, rigid, and very very nimble. At 22.5 or so lbs its pretty light too..esp for its time (1995).

I look forward to hitting more trails in my area, and then traveling to some maybe up around Robinsville, NC. I go to Deal's Gap at least 4-5 times a year...might as well start bringing the bike along :D

Pretty light? My daily ride is over 1 ½ of your bikes :) I'm jealous.

Careful. You start riding the trails here, you'll forget about the tail of the dragon and start leaving the mc at home.

In all seriousness, give tsali a whirl while you're up here. You'll love it and its right next door.

JonRHD send me...MTI a message if you are heading this way I live 20 miles from Tsali and we can ride. Maybe Schwim can come out as well...and Tsali is much more quite than Deals Gap!

Thanks for the invite! I might be heading up there sometime around July/August...a friend of mine is graduating college and really wants to go to Fontana with a bunch of friends as a gift to himself. If we end up going he wants to drive The Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway and maybe raft the Nanatahala....I think I can talk him into hitting some trails too :P

Also, there are some pretty cool trails right at Fontana. A little more difficult than tsali, but when they are in good repair they're a lot of fun!
