Newbie to MTB'ing - First purchase

Postby sartios » Fri Dec 14, 2012 19:56 pm

Hello all

New to biking and I am currently loving it alot, need to get a few more bits, hydration pack better gloves and a helmet!

Anyway I got a Claud Butler Stone River, second hand, but it was never used, with lights and some other bits, anyway not modified it in anyway apart from the outer edge of the rim was in silver which I have sprayed black as I prefer that look.

Looks like shoot, but I'm sure you'll enjoy riding it!

Certainly not been used much - just need to add some Mud now!

I'd also go with shortening the stem, also loose the wheel reflectors.

Very obviously a Merida frame, very very similar to a Carrera Vulcan of the same age!

The most important thing is to get out and enjoy it!
