Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
hey guys wanna go ride bikes
Puberty was a hard time for all of us. Just be patient and it will be over in a couple of years. Then you can finally chill out and stop shrieking at us. We're looking for gear, you're looking for gear, but none of the roadies and none of the other mtb-ers are flaming the other. Sure, I might not need any DH shorts, or a full-face helmet, or full-finger gloves, or 2.5" knobbies, but you don't see me blathering on about how mountain bikers are "gay" and insulting anyone who participates in it. Chill out, wait for the gear you want, snap it up when it comes. Sure you're the future, but you have to remember that there are young roadies who believe THEY are the future. There are a lot more riders than you out there and they come in all shapes and sizes, wearing tight clothing and loose, riding all sorts of bikes, but the main thing is they're all on two wheels. Peace.
Just learn to use your return button.
heres the full story.
your right i AM a punk bitch teenager. no doubt. sory roji or whatever but the dinner roll thing was funny. the only loser i can think of is one who tells you to spell check it and for about the 9ooth time i almost can beileve this criag guy. GIANT!!!! i know it seems like i complain about the works but i atleast have standards. there just poorly made bikes. i have a friend with a giant yukon fx or lx. something like that. hes a spoiled chap with way to much money. blah blah blah. you know the ones. so he bets me that his bike can kick my custim set up. and we all know that rideing is 5% skill 15% luck and 80% bullshit. its energy gell and protien water and all that crap. i ride to ride but im a bit to competitive so i call him on it. first we race and i beat him by aorund 5 minutes. then we trade bikes and mine makes it out fine and his is allbut scrap. it was shoped for 4 weeks with blow seals in the front shock and i ripped of a derailer and bent the back chainstays. needles to say giants cant stand up to half the stuff specialized can take. i ride an urban tank. i ride street or trail but theres just no thrill to road bikeing. all i want is some quality gear that wont make me areodynamic cause how much of a difference does it make anyway. when you blast into a hairpin corner at 35 on single track you better be able to think fast on whats next. the slow rolling hills or even the highspeed downhill blaze at 5o plus on a road bike is no comparison. all i want is gear. all you want is gear. cant we just have compromised days? every other day is for one side of this mess and the other day is for the other. road and street, mountainbike downhill. and dont even get me started on bmx. i have a verde with khe freecoaster no brakes and a 25 9 ratio. just abouve 20 lbs. today i was shooting blind through an intersection and almost casued a wreck. so what im just a punk teenager i know everything. ive done everything. its how we all think. sad thing is that i WILL be the future. and you know that one day you will hit the bar and realize its just to late in the game for this kinda sport. by then it will be my turn but at the rate im rideing. chances are ill be dead.
Hey now, Rowena, Specialized makes some dang sweet XC and road bikes, too. I can't help but notice that both the men's world XC and men's road champions ride specialized right now.
Just because retards like Skate Tuna like it doesn't make it a bad brand...
Dude, Skate Tuna- Why all the hate? This really isnt even a topic board- If ya wanna vent go to MTBR...tons of people that wanna have conversations about how downhillers are so hardcore are roadies are so puss- 99% of the people on here just want info on gear-
Some like to earn their turns and I see nothing wrong with that- Personally I dont much care for the gondola either- Go troll somewhere else-
No suprise your a Specialized fan
Whoa. Is there gonna be a beat-down over here? Inevitable, I guess. I've noticed as I've aged, that ignorence and intolerance run rampant amongst teenagers. You guys realize this "skate tunna"'s just a punk teenager, right? Just checking.
Coupla years ago I was training pretty hard on foot, in anticipation of a thru-hike. Circumstance was I had to train alot at night. I was walking @ 100 miles a week, most of it on the road. Eventually, I got in the habit of doing my roadwork at night.
More than once, a car-full of teenagers pulled up alongside -when my focus was far away, and I was least expecting it- and screamed in my ear. I could never tell what they were yelling, but of course, I assumed the worst. I'm sure it looks pretty funny to see the long-hair walking-guy flinch. Might even make a good Youtube video, I don't know.
Once in a while some punk teenager'd throw something at me- usually a half-empty water bottle. I took to carrying a rock in each hand as I walked, strategizing that if it happened again, the rock'd already be there, in my hand. I was a pretty decent young baseball prospect once. I surmised that I could hit the back of a moving car, and still have one rock left over. When the car stopped, it'd be all over. I'd be the one laughing last. Never happened that way, of course.
I was only hit by an object thrown by a teenager from a moving car once. It was a dinner roll. The kind of lousy dinner roll you might get with crappy Chinese take-out. It hit me square in the chest. I was livid. The car sped away as I kicked at the weeds, scanning the roadside in futility for a rock of suitable heft.
By the time I got home, I was brimming with adrenaline, stammering like a fool. When I was finally able to relate what had happened to my concerned then-girlfriend, she laughed her ass off. And I mean she laughed her ass off.
So. Anyway, just let me just brew-up a cup of chamomille- don't start without me. I'll put on some Ludwig Van, and we'll commence with the festivities. :)
for reposting the northwave shoes..
Dang, I apparently missed the Jesus-shorts.
I think I see an image of Jesus on these Oakley MTB shorts, right above the "O" on the leg!!
Adam Craig's "thin wheeled bitch bike":
Adam Craig and his "spandexed ass" riding said bike (ok, not that exact bike, but the previous year's version):
Could you explain what "loosers" are?
Oh. "Losers." Go spellcheck!
You're just an ignorant little guy, aren't you? Adam Craig is one of the world's finest mountain cyclists and he wears the kind of stuff you think only the "faggy pussy thin tired bike" guys ride. He does it cause he's serious, unlike you, about doing the real hardcore stuff like making the Olympic team.
i have no idea who your gay lover craig is but im shure his spandexed ass would be miles behind me if he tried to ride his thin wheeled bitch bike down half of the stuff i ride.
they were up so long my son was just about to grow into them! :-)
Supposedly the boy's size small gloves fit me.
If a MTB costs $100-200 new (even with a huge discount), "nice" isn't usually a word one would use to describe it.
What in the $#@%@ is this? Who would want such a thing? EC90 flat bar and stem weigh less.
Also, might I point out that XC racers all wear lycra? Hell, half of them wear TT skinsuits. Are you seriously calling Adam Craig a fag? I'm pretty sure he'd beat you up or down and mountain you name and finish a beer before you arrive.
A rad tire. For a rad form of bikes. Road bike fags run and hide from all of this non-pussy sports tire. Spandex losers. Go back to the '80's!
I think you might want take some time away from all of your extreme bikarating and read a book. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
