    Howdy.

    Name's Nick. I'm from California, but currently live in Birmingham, Alabama. I started mountain biking when I was in Japan. Epic terrain there, which I dearly miss. I actually haven't ridden in like a year--2 young kids you see...

    But, I love Freeride and Downhill--my user name is Serial Thriller for a reason :D I actually got to freeride the bottom portion of Mt. Fuji several times. It was wicked.

    Here is a snip of my bike back in Japan--an 06 Yeti ASX (with a crappy Manitou fork):

    @Seria17hri11er , glad you're here!
    Yes, kids will knock you off your bike, figuratively and literally. But I'm starting to take my oldest trail riding, and it can be really fun for both of us. I can see him dropping me on climbs in a few years. That'll be weird. :)

    Thanks :). That's awesome. I bet it can be fun. Hopefully my kids will want to ride. I've got quite a long while before I can take them. 3 and 1 year old.

    Hi guys,
    Iam Sascha(29y) from Troisdorf, Germany. I found you searching for the ROSE Pro Cross, read Brams post about his height and thought "another tall fellow"... i have to write him!
    Now Iam staying :p
    I plan on starting to commute with my bike to work. For that reason I want a new bike. I always liked the idea of getting a road bike but remained with my mtb everytime. At this time I think a cross bike would suit my needs best.
    I also added you to my strava to get motivated :innocent:

    kind regards
    Sascha

    Hi people,
    I just realized that I have started write on this forum without a proper introdution.
    So here I am.
    My name is Igor and I live in Northern Italy, in a land between Milan and Varese. I'm 40 years old and I am employed as a Policeman. I used to be Mountain Rescue technician in Cervinia and bikes are my passion.
    I love to ride with my wife close to rivers, dams and lakes (that we have in abbundance).
    I like to know people, expecially foreign; in my opinion encountering other cultures is an incredible enrichment so I took a degree in Cultural mediation and I speak Italian, English, Spanish and a bit of German and French.
    Out of curiosity Orione532 was my radio code when I was deployed in Former Yugoslavia ad Peace Enforcing international force.

    Thank you for having me on the forum.
    Igor
