Upgrading to a New Mountain Bike

edited November 2013 in MTB beginners
Hello Everyone!!

I just joined this forum a few minutes ago and I'm into endurance sports and mountain biking is one of them! I read some of the posts on this forum and I see that there is a ton of beneficial info here, from the beginner to the expert!

I do some cycling and I enjoy running as well. I also would like to let everyone know that I own and operate a website that is centered around mountain biking and with this website, I write articles that relate to mountain biking. One of the articles that I wrote within the past week is about what to think about when you decide to upgrade to a new mountain bike. Here is a link to that article, so check it out and tell me what you think!!

I hope you like the article and leave a comment with your thoughts!!

    I'll keep that link for when I can't get to sleep......

    Poster is cleraly not even aware this is a UK based site!
  • Thanks very much for the picture! I don't see why you had to post the same picture twice as that is a reflection of your intelligence level!! The Rookie, Just to let you know, the word "cleraly" isn't even spelled correctly! If you don't like that I post a link to my website on this forum for everyone to see and wish to make a point about it, then at least learn how to spell!!! :)

    I hope everyone else is enjoying the article that I wrote and posted it here for everyone to see!! Besides, this forum is a win/win/win for everyone. People like you get to view my website and it can slowly gain more exposure around the globe. More mountain bikers such as yourself can read a different viewpoint from a mountain biker and have access to everything that my website has to offer. Bike Radar continues to get an increased number of page views from all of us posting and viewing other people's posts and therefore their advertisers are willing to pay more to advertise on their website. So before someone tries to criticize me for posting a link back to my website, just remember who is really profiting from you being on this forum!!! : )

    I did not post it twice. Obviously you do not understand the wizardry of the internet and the 'quote' function.
    Possibly a reflection of your intelligence level.

    Thanks everyone for the input!! I really feel welcome here, except that I'd like to challenge you to a mountain bike challenge. Here's the challenge: See who can come up with the best mountain bike website and one that has 1500+ Facebook fans. Everyone is welcome to visit my site http://mountainbikeblogger.com/ and all of you are welcome to visit the site and become a fan. Except for cooldad & 97th choice!!

    Oh no. I'm devastated. Not allowed to be a fan.
    How will I fill my long, lonely nights?
    Life as we know it has ended.

    ps That's not a mountain bike challenge, which would involve real life and an actual bicycle.

    and one that has 1500+ Facebook fans.

    Insomnia's pretty common in today's high stress society, but you can take pride in the fact that you're helping 1500+ sufferers overcome it...
  • Looks a decent site
  • Can we please move this post to the crudcatcher... could be thread of the month!
  • Yep, with the web logger being such a tool.

    I daren't log on to the site any more than the once I have to see what further drivel's been written for fear of inflating is ego with more hits. Ammo requires hits, proper catch 22.
