Rick H. - Vancouver, BC

Noodles' Mission Statement. My mission in life is simple - do what you love to do. One of those things happens to be mountain biking. Why? Well, mountain biking is faster than walking (when your fit anyhow), less impact than running (except when you bail onto a rock or log) and involves lots of fresh air (unlike your average gym). When I ride, I want it all - just like life, even it is a bit bass ackwards. You've got the ups and you've got the downs. I don't just want part of the mountain, I want it all. I need an All Mountain Bike like the Mission 3, simple as that. Between everyday life and biking you can achieve perfect balance. Enjoy the downs, and enjoy the ups - just depends on how you want to look at it (and what bike your on).
