    I'm new, I love mountain biking, I love my bike, I'm female, I'm not a mechanic, my husband doesn't do the bike thing, I'm tired of taking my bike to the LBS for things that I could - and want to - fix myself. I just need to be able to ask questions and get help without the guys treating me like either I'm stupid for asking or they just do it for me and don't give me a chance to learn.
    I have a Gary Fisher Tassajara GS hardtail that I love dearly and I have a Specialized Safire Expert FSR that I don't like much yet.

    Welcome aboard, Colleen. I know where you are coming from... I am a single mother and cyclists. My daughter also enjoys bikes. It's easy for women in a male dominated scene to be thought of as "dumb broads" but gals like us can prove them differently! :)
    Good to have you here, new friend.
