I would love to hear any recommendations or good deals on a new crankset.

How about you?
That's a nice bike! I ride a Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt. Not the best at anything except fun!

Thanks, I haven't been to this thread for a while and read the other mountain bike posts this morning. Then this popped up, I did get all the tune up stuff in August and that bad boy has been seen the miles since then.

Thunderbolt? Those things are incredibly nice (expensive) depending on the model. I am jealous for an XC and trail bike.

I mountain biked today for the first time in about 5 years and had a blast. I've lived in the Nashville area my whole life and never knew they had a nice set of trails at Percy Warner.

Hit an actual bike park one day. Rent a DH bike, all of the protective gear, and go have some fun!

That's a good link, thanks. I have a couple of friends that are really into it so I'll be hitting the trails more often.

Anyone here have a link whereby I can set my mtn bike up to ride in the basement? Some sort of stand. I can fix something up , but it would look kinda funky....

A trainer and a front wheel block. You can get them at Performance Bike or even Amazon.

Mine's the 750msl, so midrange but great for what i need. I bought the 2015 at the end of 2015 so got a decent deal on it; still a fair dime though.

Happy 2017!
