Broken Bones

This weekend I purchased a device to break my own bones. Tim finally convinced me to get a mountain bike. With those great trails right down the road from our house, it seemed like a good move.

I headed for REI to make use of their 20% sale for members in March and picked up the Novara Aspen. I didn't do a ton of research because I was buying something on the low end of the scale, but this looks like a pretty nice bike. When did bikes start getting disc brakes? Crazy.

Prepare yourself for low budget, low skill mountain bike movies in the near future.
