    Hello!

    I ran across this forum while searching for information on training and increasing my base of knowledge about both road and mountain biking. I pretty much am as novice as it comes in both arenas and I want to get more into riding for both the exercise, and for some competitive aspects. Im a currently a student and I will be graduating this spring with a bachelors in science, and then Im off to training as a Field Artillery Lieutenant in the army. Im a pretty avid runner (although like most things I want to get more focused and in better shape that way as well) and Im interested in doing a sprint triathlon this summer hopefully. I have a scantante r660 for my road bike and a mongoose tyax as my mt bike (entry level I know but its all I really need) Im hoping to learn more about technique and just general information here as many terms elude me like its a foreign language.

    Welcome, hope you find what you are looking for here. If not ask, there is a lot of helpful people here who have little bicycles ridden by blood cells in their veins. And they are more than happy to help out.

    Welcome! And don't listen to these guys, they both ride pink trikes. With baskets. And streamers. ;)

    Purple and black. Pretty edgy for a trike. But that's what fixed gear is all about...
