Hey all, I'm Chrissy. I live in Virginia and am just getting back into mountain biking after two thumb surgeries. I originally injured my thumb (dislocating and tearing ligaments) at work in 2016 and have been reduced to only road cycling since that first surgery. I had my second operation in March which was a fusion so in a month or so the joint will be immobile (which is a good thing in this case!) and I'll be free to mountain bike at my own discretion again. I'm waiting until my husband gets fed up with me borrowing his Banshee Rune to go ride to drop the money on my own bike, but have started the hunt in case something catches my eye, plus medical clearance- that *technically* hasn't happened yet Facepalm Happy to be part of the community again!

Hello everyone !
I'm Karine, 26 years old and I started mountain biking 2 years ago. I live in Quebec, Canada. I probably changed my bike more than most because it didn't fit my needs First I had a hardtail (Trek Marlin 6 XSmall) wich my fiancé gave me for my birthday and it hooked me on the sport a lot! But it had some limits because it was so stiff and Quebec isn't such a smooth place to ride After that, I changed for a full suspension (Devinci Spartan NX 2017 Small) and it became the love of my life... until I realized it was too big for me I still have it to this day, but I am switching my frame for another one that is a size smaller I am glad to discover this sport and experiment techniques and tricks I learned so much about how important the size and settings of your bike is in the last year, and I am beginning to really see how a bigger bike affects lots of parts in my rides that I struggle with! I am eager to learn more and if you ride near me I am always open to new biking partners! ‍♀️
