I'm from Toms River and haven't been on a mountain bike in 15 yrs, if I remember correctly Rock Shocks just came out. I just picked up a trek 4300
with disk breaks, I didn't want to go too crazy and really break the bank. Any way I'm here to reeducate myself, so if I start asking dumb questions bare with me. I'm looking to give Allaire a spin in the am. If I'm in as bad of shape as i think i am that should be a good start.I hope it wont take long to get back into the swing of things, but let's face realty 15 yrs ago I had hair and was 30 lbs lighter.:cool:

You are not that far behind the eight ball. i was riding on saturday and figured my new tag line should be "it took me 36 years to get this fat, and 14 years to get this slow!" Good luck getting back in the saddle.

Hey all!

Also getting back into it after not riding for a couple years. Have a Specialized Rockhopper collecting dust itching for some dirt in its tires.Gonna get my son into it this year too....shoppping for an entry level bike that will be good enough for a total newbie without being total trash. He's still got growth spurts ahead so I'm really not willing to spend +$300 for a bike he'll out grow soon...if he even sticks with it. Any suggestions for bikes that are reasonable but not junk?
