Cool!
Your are right, Eric IS an excellent mechanic-really knows his stuff. He has rebuilt some high end Fox forks for me, trued wheels that many mechanics would have told me to just junk.

That's a very nice looking, trail ready bike that should easily take whatever the WNY trails throw at it!

After hitting up 5 LBS's I finally decided to go with a Jamis through Eric in Hamburg. He is a really knowledgable guy and has been into bikes for a long time "as many of you know". He had a couple great deals on Redlines, but they did not fit me right. I was in the shop for over an hour talking to him and he answered all of my questions in an honest manor "I am really big on customer service in any industry". If you have not been in the shop I recomend it. Here is the link to the bike I am getting. www.jamisbikes.com/usa/thebikes/hardtails/exile/11_exile3.html I am psyched about getting into riding again and have not felt this way about it in years....looking forward to the season. Thank you board memebers for all your replies and help....I never would have thought of going to that shop in Hamburg.:D

The latest issue of Mountain Bike Action has a rather lengthy article about High School mountain bike racing teams out west. It seems that it's catching on rather quickly. Interested schools should contact Gary Boulanger at the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) at (650)521-1624.

Alden's program was funded by a Carol White PE grant through the federal department of education, the shop in won the bid to supply the bikes. It would be great for the club to make a connection with a ready-made population of riders.

Orchard Park High School had a MTB club/program in the 90's-2000's. Jon might be able to give more info about it, his neighbor ran the program for a few years.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
