Well I'm new to biking, other than when I rode as a kid. I'm not going to lie, I don't really know what I'm doing, but I want to learn. My fiance and I bought some used mountain bikes. I got a Mongoose xr-250 (front and rear suspension and front disc break), maybe not the best bike but it does the job for now. I only paid $100 for it so I don't think I got ripped off (I hope anyways) cause I've seen them for around $200. I live in Slippery Rock, PA and need to find a place to ride. If anyone's got suggestions let me know. Actually my fiance wants a different bike, she doesn't like the one we got her and it's to big for her. She's only 5'3". So if anyone's got a mountain bike for sale in the area that isn't to expensive let me know about that too.
