Well, after several years off the bicycle, I picked up another MTB. Was trying to do it on a tight budget, and watching for a 29er. I preferred full suspension back when I was an avid rider. But it really wasn't in the budget, that BIG speeding ticket I recently got wasn't helping! So, I found a good deal on an Iron Horse Maverick XC. Not a high end bike by any stretch of the imagination. But it will allow me to get back into riding on a budget, and see if my heart (legs) is really into it. Cleaned and tuned it up, and taken a few quick spins around my property on it, on a little trail I built for my son to ride his Honda 50 on. So far, it's not bad. Decent cheap spec Shimano rapid fire shifters, and cheap Tektro cable pull discs.
