    Lonerider12 is the man!!!!!!!! Very classy move dude, seriously. Others might have stayed silent but very cool to come out and apologize. Besides, do you really want Dion to get mad and have his blood pressure go up and then explode?

    Really. If I explode, I'd coat the trails with digested kale shakes. Not good.

    Another (the first?) internet success story! All's well that rear-ends well...

    Btw- I ripped off my video from Pinkbike. It's one of my favorite mtb/drama clips of all time!

    I got a similar start on mtbr, when an earbud wearing hiker didnt hear me coming and complained on mtbr about it.

    That was 7 years ago and I yell louder than ever at earbud wearing trail users now!

    That video was fantastic! She didn't get hurt except for emotionally which might have been a pre-existing condition anyway. I don't always keep my cool but after she threw her bike at the guy, I might have picked it up and tossed it even further. I am a huge hypocrite! I say great job for one thing then tell you I would get all cray cray and throw a bike. That dude kept his cool and was really cool when he said, "I am not going to leave you here hurt." Maybe she worked for a bike company and thought she would have a sweet workers comp claim.

    Yah man, that guy handled it WAY better than I would have. I try to be a nice guy, but I'm pretty sure I would have blown up on that whole group.

    To the OP, good job keeping your cool too. I had a guy run into me at Waterdog and leave a deep gash in my brand new fork, and it took all my self control not to tell him off. Same problem there - target fixation. ;)

    I'll need to borrow your plastic shower curtain, a couple of Zorro masks, a bottle of baby oil and a VHS camcorder.

    Sounds like a plan, but only if you post it on youtube.

    Pretty sure Porkstacker has that stuff in his massive bike tool bag. Did you know his fat bike has 16lbs of rotating weight?

    I prefer leg wrestling to solve disputes as opposed to regular wrestling, but that's just me.

    I need to open up a hotmale.com account before I post any videos.

    but if you do it hard enough, it's really painful.

    Thumb wrestling is definitely a better way to handle the dispute than leg wrestling.

    At least Dion didn't come right out saying how much his ass hurt. I have to laugh when guys that don't ride much come back from a trail ride with the buds and comment on how much there ass is hurting! Dude!

    That's crazy.

    And that chick in the video was a little dramatic....
