New Bike

Picked up a Salsa Timberjack last Friday with the 29" tires. Fantastic bike for the money. The GF and I got new bikes so we could go out riding and get exercise instead of sitting at home shoveling doritos into our mouth holes.

Nice ride. I've been shopping for a new bike too.

If anyone has small kids and want to take them riding, check out the Mac-ride.com . I have one and take my kids on legit mtn bike rides.

Do you think my dad would still pedal me around if I got one of those even if I'm 35?

No, but you can pedal your dad around. I tell my kids that in 20 yrs they are expected to return the favor.

Nice bike! What's the size of the tires?

I might have lied on the tires now that I think about it. I think they're 3" wide.

I did quite a bit of research before I ordered mine, and the Timberjack is one of the better bangs for the buck in terms of components relative to price. Their rear frame is pretty unique too.

It's been a while since I ride my bike. Looks like the tire is pretty solid considering its tread pattern.

It's definitely an offroad biased tire. They handle really well on our desert trails with the loose gravel and mixed up rocks.

I ride more around on the street with my girlfriend (she's had a couple back surgeries and can't huck down mountains) than I do offroad, but the tires are holding up as well as I'd expect them to do!
