Mountain bike?

Hey butthead, Jared and I just got moutain bikes! He'd love to ride with you.

We paid approx. $250/ea. for ours. We got them at Debo's Bicycles in Arlington. You can also go to Bicycles Inc. off of Harwood and ?? (it's past Norwood, that's all I know).

Why don't you come too? As soon as the weather gets a little nicer, i'd like to ride out at River Legacy and stuff at least twice a week for 5+ miles. LMK if you're down, i can fit everyone and their bikes in the truck.

I can't ride that much now because of school. I'll ride on the weekends though!

River Legacy's trail is only like 2.3 miles or something and it's a single track. Check out www.dorba.org for all the trails, conditions, GTG's, etc. It's a great website!

I busted my ass big time at Knob Hill about a month ago. I wanna go back though.

Like i said, Tuesdays and Fridays are going to be the OTW training, and maybe 2 weekend days a month.. I'm on a new schedule @ work (can't make it in at 8, make it 8:30!) so i'm off at 12:30 now, and i'll have the ski with me when the weather gets nice - it's only about 5 minutes to Grapevine Lake from here.

Don't buy bikes from WAL-MART, THEY SUCK!! Buy from a local bike shop that will give you some type of service plan for the bike. Specialized are good cheap bikes. If nothing else, EBAY has some great deals..
