MTB newb

Postby sammysideways » Fri Oct 12, 2012 21:54 pm

Just thought id say hi to begin with as just joined the forum.
Im a complete beginer to mountain biking, I was thinking about buying a Voodoo Hoodoo. Is this a good bike for a newbie or is there anything else for the same sort of budget? im aiming to take part in the Rat Race in July so whatever i get needs to be suitable for ups and downs.
Also ive sent a few emails to mtb clubs in oxford with no replys, anyone know of any good mtb clubs that will take me under my wing?

If it's just for riding on the road I'd watch these guys as they tend to go for lights that would outshine the sun! 8)

So you'll dazzle us while not being able to see where your going as your sun shines the wrong way?
