    How much? If this is a good fit for me it may be the answer to my no bike problem....

    The bike I was thinking you could use is my HT, but it only has 9 gears and may be hard for you on the climbs. I have no problem letting you ride my FS rig, but that may be very bad for your wallet
    I'm down for a ride wherever you feel is best I have no problems driving to ride! As far as it only having 9 gears I should be ok I feel Im pretty fit from 50+ days of snowboarding this season and tons of longboarding this last summer (9+ Mile rides)

    It's a 17" frame and I'm 5-8 so it should fit you. It was my back up bike and the deraileurs and brakes were adjusted last season. The bike has 100-150 miles on it and does need a new seat, my ass bent the rails a little. $150 or bo.

    wish i'd done something like this rather than buy brand new for my first bike.

    Tim, you think Nepaug might be a bit much for an intro ride?

    could you part with it for around 100, that way I can get it tuned, get a full face helmet, ect...? I assume that its not too beat up and can take some more abuse from a totally new rider?

    The shop went over it last summer(probably 20 miles on it since) when my other bike had warranty issues. $125
