View Full Version : My new toy

July 3rd, 2009, 12:43 PM
Been looking for new hobby and thought i'd give this a try. It's been 18 yrs since I have been on a bike, so I'm completely new at this again. It seems like a great bike. The only thing that bugs me so far is the disc brakes squeal sometimes and the chain and gears don"t shift very smooth. I've also noticed the chain rubbing on the chain guard up front. Anyways I like it and it gives me an excuse to get out of the house with the kids.

What do you all think, any advice/pointers for a noob? :D

Get it tuned for the shifting problems, otherwise get out and ride!

Nice looking bike. Not sure how tall you are, but be sure to get your seat hieght right. Your leg should be completely straight with your heel on the pedal.

Judging by the rig behind the bike, you've probably got more than enough mechanical skill to tune the bike yourself.
