I'm doing my first two triathlons this summer and a first marathon. The first tri is The Huntsman (Swim 1200m, Bike 33km, Run 10km) then later in the summer going back to the same venue in the New Forest for a longer race (Swim 1.9km, Bike 90km, Run 21km). If all goes well, I'll aim for an ironman next summer. What about you?

@Nkwkfld nice, that sounds great! I've been doing triathlon for about 8 years or so now, granted last year was a total wash. I've done many shorter distance tri's, amongst 20 or so Half Ironman races, and 3 Full ironmans. This year I have a Half Ironman in St George UT and a Full in Mont Tremblant Canada and another full in Sacramento CA. Not sure what races will happen in North America this year with all the Covid restrictions,

Loving this thread.  Congrats @zhivago!  Awesome to see you on here.  I have been appreciating your posts since way back.  I am researching bikes at the moment.  We have some great trails here in Northern California.  Thanks for the smile.

.....It's turning out to be an awesome bonding activity for my son and I too which is probably the best part of it all!

I can hear you @zhivago

We drove over 600 kilometer, to catch up this bike for my son. The MTB market is getting wild and crazy at the moment, on continental Europe?!

Bike market is crazy in the US as well. They can’t get parts.

Looks like a great bike!!

My understanding is there is a global bike shortage currently. Mix of supply chain disruptions and demand by new consumers both fueled by the rona.

@browniemcghee thanks man, that is very kind of you to say!! I am grateful to have gotten into MTB now for sure but you are correct Northern CA is home to many great trails. Makes me a little sad I was only road riding during my time there, no regrets though, road is tons of fun as well!! My last few years there I was living in Sonoma and the road riding there is truly world class.

I grew up in Sonoma from 10-19 after Texas aged 0-9.  Used to make deli sandwiches for Levi Leipheimer in Alexander Valley.  Beautiful country to ride a bike for sure.  Pine Flat!  Legendary .  I would love to hear updates on your rides from time to time.
