    Attention: PARKING LOT SHARKS

    Don't think we're not on to what you're up to. The normal person takes 5-10 minutes to get ready in the lot. Not you. You're stalling to allow some newb in front of you so you can get the satisfaction of passing them. Nice try guy with the mountain biker tattoo'd on your calf. Smoked on DR by a guy with an 11 year old Stumpy HT.

    Wow. Irony in this thread.



    And in case it's not clear, the irony is not the guy getting 'smoked' by the OP.

    Ha!

    I find this post hilarious. Can you imagine if that dude actually was waiting for someone to go out first so they could pass them and get a hard-on? I know some really slow ass parking lot dudes. Socks, shoes, gloves, helmet, sunglasses, camelback...it shouldn't take that long.

    I don't know if this will make you feel better, but he was probably just eye-balling your junk while you were changing into your bike shorts.

    Was it a Specialized tattoo, a chainring, or flames?

    That should cover just about every calf tattoo on a cyclist.

    So they are dbags because they pass you? Or because they wear spandex?

    So you think some guy is waiting in the parking lot for YOU to go ride, just so he can start behind you and pass you?

    Seriously?

    Sometimes i sit in my truck and smoke a bowl while i wait for you to change out of your work clothes and get all your tights on and ready to ride so that i DON'T have to have any encounter whatsoever with you on trail. if you are so self conscious about being passed or your perception of other riders intent you cant possibly be having much fun up there. just freakin ride and relax and have fun

    I was able to fend off mountain bike tattoo guy but was later killed by a 80# girl waiting for me at lot#2 at Red Rocks trail side. I've got a plan though. The 22# stumpy is being converted to single speed! I'll bet I save 200 grams!

    He was fully dressed and had his bike ready to go when I pulled up in my car with my Sunday best on. He must have checked his Camelback 10#. He was waiting for someone. I saw him do the same thing at Falcon. Hard to miss the tattoo on the calf.

    It is a silhouette of a mountain biker. I think it was green ink.

    I only hold a mirror to the front range cycling community. Nobody ruins my ride. I find human animal behavior entertaining. Most mountain bikers fit into easily categorized and predictable categories. Me? I'm just the guy addicted to endorphins. You're the "easily upset by random posts on the interwebz guy".

    Buck up little trooper, if you're not getting passed, then you're sitting in the back row of a spin class and that is a far worse fate.

    Maybe he has a crush on you and likes to ride behind you.

    Wow! I jump ahead of people and then block them if they try to pass. That way they can get on here and have something to gripe about. It's my little gift to them.

    Here's what I do: I wait at the top of the climb with my full rigid bike until I see some loser wearing a Primal Wear jersey with a 6" dually start the decent. I'll give them 30 seconds or a minute and then I chase them down and ride right on their rear wheel until they crash or pull over. Crashing is more fulfilling. It's good DH training plus they clear trail for you. I'm easy like a Sunday morning that way.

    Hopefully you are riding a vintage Goat that is older than the rider you are chasing down, just to put a bit of salt in the wound.

    Oh I'm such a silly fool! I picked the wrong stud for a little ego bump.
    But hey, thanks for noticing my calves. I've been toning them in step class.
    A bit of a consolation prize, I suppose. Lol at me!

    Oh, and did you catch Grey`s Anatomy tonight?
    OMG! Spoiler alert!

    Does it creep you out b/c you like it in some weird way? Not sure I get the issue with spandex. Seems kinda homophobic to me. Have I mentioned I really love observing the human condition. I find it so fascinating.

    I don't however classify riders who wear spandex as dbags just b/c they might pass me, and then be ashamed to look at them for some homophobic reasons. Seems kind of silly to me. Wear what you're comfortable wearing.

    its just one of those things that causes me to loose faith in humanity. since when do grown men ever think its cool to go anywhere in anything skin tight? it completely offsets the awesomeness that it is mountain biking.

    baby jesus cries a little every time you leave the house wearing those things.

    its totally not a homophobic thing, i met a gay couple out at walker ranch one day (they were of course wearing baggy shorts), and these dudes were freeking rad and funny as hell. i shared some beers with them in the parking lot and he was going off about "look im a bit of a girly man, so i walk down through those rock sections, but if i was gunna really nail it, i'd wanna be on that bike! that thing is soooooo hawt!!" i was in stitches, that guy was awsome.

    so i guess just to say, this gay dude, was totally freekin rad and just having a good old time. not being a ***** thinking he's mr. pro xc racer guy getting his kicks passing peeps. those are the guys with the sexuality issues.

    What creeps me out are people who can't keep their baggies from riding down and exposing their chewbaccass.

    I am slow in parking lots for 2 reasons:
    1. I am just slow getting ready
    2. I assume pretty much everyone is faster than me, so if someone else is getting ready, I hang out to let them go first so I don't have to be in their way, or worry about when they will be catching me.

    How about this: Not only show up at a TH when Euroford is there but titilate him while putting on spandex then just to really get him hot and bothered shave the legs as he's heading up the trail, then just to top it off, blow by him on the climb, shakin the booty as you do it. Man, that'd make my day.

    Drove down from Tucson AZ to Rocky Point, Sonora, Mexico, for a triathalon. Sitting at a Mexican restaurant with a bunch of triathletes at the table next to us.
    Tri-athlete calls the waiter over.
    "Can we please have some chips that are a little less greasy?"
    Waiter:
    "No."

    Haaa! Boy I thought that was funny.

    I would think someone named "Euro" ford would be fine with the spandex considering the banana hammock beach attire. j/k

    its totally not a homophobic thing, i met a gay couple out at walker ranch one day (they were of course wearing baggy shorts), and these dudes were freeking rad and funny as hell. i shared some beers with them in the parking lot and he was going off about "look im a bit of a girly man, so i walk down through those rock sections, but if i was gunna really nail it, i'd wanna be on that bike! that thing is soooooo hawt!!" i was in stitches, that guy was awsome.

    so i guess just to say, this gay dude, was totally freekin rad and just having a good old time. not being a ***** thinking he's mr. pro xc racer guy getting his kicks passing peeps. those are the guys with the sexuality issues.
    I bet your best friend is black too. You may be overthinking it as I was only kidding you on the internet. I'm sure you're not homophobic, and don't really care if you are. But I don't get what your issue with spandex is. I may or may not wear spandex while mountain biking, and may or may not wear spandex while road biking.

    I would bet most people who pass you are doing it b/c they are faster, and in better shape. Not b/c he/she is being a ***** thinking he/she is a pro xc racer getting their kicks passing peeps. I think that is more of an insecurity thing on your part...unless said spandex passer calls you a loser on the way past. A lot of peeps are actually training for something or other and trying to keep up with their goals. It's really not all about you.

    Euroford - do you watch NFL football? Is it okay for those guys to wear spandex? I mean their commercials always show beer, chicks, and pick up trucks so it's got to be okay, right?

    easy doods, spandex does look stupid, even on you, and even if it is the best thing you can wear riding. but, you can't get around the fact that most folks that wear spandex take themselves a bit more seriously than those of us that don't. i mean, if i were to go out and play football, i wouldnt wear spandex even if the pros do - your analogy sucks. beer and chicks don't, though.

    i lived in washington dc and rode mtn bikes with a group of triathletes; you know, noble, diligent riders who had fancy watches and heart-rate monitors, probably much like some of y'all. strong riders, always in spandex, too. i got over it - but their intensity and inability to treat mountain biking as something more than a workout or something to brag about always stuck, and i think that is what this thread is really about.

    My point was that many cyclist bashers think spandex is gay or silly, yet they seem to forget about about NFL players in tight pants as if their tight pants are somehow exempt.

    I don't want people to be forced to look at my junk, so I wear baggies most of the time. But, if it's 90+ degrees or I'm riding more than 3 hours, baggies are just not practical. Try it sometime. Your crotch will thank you.

    I don't understand the spandex / lycra hate... at least as long as you're wearing properly fitting cycling-specific shorts that don't ride down exposing your chewbaccass. What I am NOT a fan of are the tri-guy swim/bike/run banana hammocks, that is a bit much... but at least those guys (usually) shave or wax.

    Spandex is just wrong. Other than that it's ok.
    So it seems to me to be, this thing that I think I see.

    no, i don't watch football on tv. i watch my son play, but hopefully he'll grow out of it, i'm supportive but i try to encourage his involvement in real sports by taking him climbing and ridding at trestle.

    You're not pissin' them off, when you wear lycra, you're making them mad at themselves because you bring out their inner homosexual. (you beast you) I mean, you're talking about a bunch of guys who have Biker fox and photos of guys with their packages bursting through in their favorites file.

    So does everyone that wears "baggies" (which, is where weed goes, not your nuts) wear plain cotton undies under there? Ultimately I don't care, but, personally, I wear "spandex" under my "baggies" when I ride.

    Why so closeted about your "spandex" usage? Or is this a poor self-image issue?

    Also, what is the OPs take on women in "spandex"? If it isn't the same, then isn't there a bit of contradiction there?

    If I like women in dresses and high heels, I have to like men in dresses and high heels too?

    A man must have enemies and places he is not welcome. In the end we are not only defined by our friends but those against us.

    I think high heels are stupid no matter who wears them. I do have a few sarongs that I wear in the desert or on the river or other special occasions. Chicks dig 'em.

    It doesn't seem to be an issue with any of my male friends - in fact more than a couple of them have gone out and got themselves a sarong or two. They're secure people. If it makes closeted homosexuals uncomfortable all the better - it might make them confront and accept their sexuality. In the long term it's better for them to come out.

    I guess I don't see why a sarong would make anyone uncomfortable...

    Your are so insecure you try too hard to show how secure you are...

    But personally, I don't think I have to buy in to your BS to avoid the dreaded stigma of "having issues".

    Enjoy all the sarongs or frilly pink panties you like. I don't give a F8uck. I think a discussion of spandex is simply a matter of taste. If you accuse someone of having issues for liking it or not liking it, then you have issues.

    ZRM, you seem to be VERY defensive about your clothing choices. I guess that's just a sign of how secure you are?

    Lighten up Francis. The whole "I don't like what you wear" topic that comes up so frequently on MTBR is so completely absurd to me that I find it impossible to do anything but poke fun at it; especially the posters who seem to take it seriously or giggle about it like 11 year old boys in the locker room. Sorry if you're not getting that.

    PS: Sarongs dorock in hot weather. Free ball is were it's at. (and chicks do dig 'em)
