    Hello all,
    My wife finally broke down and let me buy a decent bike, but I don't know where to ride, and don't really want to ride alone. I'm also kind of a novice at mountain biking. Looking to meet others who know the area and an extra riding buddy.

    yeah i have no actual problem with the bikes themselves they are actually pretty elegant and simple its more the high school kids who ride them that for some reason need to create a problem with me because i have brakes. ive had three kids yell at me and others that when i pull up next to them wont even talk to me

    I don't understand why my kids dress the way they do, or like the music they do. Even the smartest kids are stupid when they are in their teens to early twenties. We were just like them, back in the day.

    I am Twenty though!!! i just figured there would be some common ground there seeing as you know they are also on a bike... obviously they do not share the same sentiments

    Oh, I misread your post. They're just trying to justify their own stupidity. Brakeless + Utah drivers = accidents for sure.

    Man Utah sounds ruff with these roving bands of smart mouthed teenagers on the streets. Austin has a homeless problem. Utah has a sass mouth problem. I'm moving to Utah!

    Right about now they're probably stacking them up in a warehouse, so they can plant them when the ground thaws.
