    MTN BIKER angst: DH vs. the WORLD!!!!!

    Apex, Maxwell, FFS.
    Nobody cares (at least not someone who is emotionally adjusted) what you ride, or how you ride it.
    so all of you DH folks who feel the need to spew ridiculous verbiage about your exploits and skills.........I mean SKILLZZ.
    give it rest, we got the part about the GNAR and the fact that you cause sonic booms from speed and the sound of your squeaky suspension hittng some CLIFF DROP!!!!
    and the rest of us are either lycra Fegggs, or old and slow.

    the whole bitc% people have is when someone passes them at a high rate of speed in an unsafe manner.
    I think most MTN Bikers realize it is a bummer to lose momentum on a nice line.................but we also recognize you have a RESPONSIBILITY to conduct yourself in a SAFE and COURTEOUS MANNER.

    I think we all understand that things happen on the trail, such that you don't need to intentionally ruin that grace period that most people allow cyclist these days.
    I rode on Sunday, and EVERYBODY (Horseback and Ranger included) gave me a free pass on the trail.
    I also scared the crap out of a couple that was hidden from view when I came blasting down the trail section.
    I had to lock up and exit the trail.
    I could have simply blasted by them, but that is NOT responsible or acceptable.
    I told them I spotted the section, and failed to see them.
    I then apologized several times, because regardless of the situation: YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF YOURSELF AND BIKE AT ALL TIMES.
    the people were very cool, and I hope they did not feel disrespected.
    I would certainly have a problem with my parents/grandparents being buzzed by some selfish little jerk.
    the point is that mistakes happen enough, without being an ass clown and ignoring the regulations.
    there are simply too many trail users to "let it fly" and not expect that time to time, you will need to hold back from going full out.

    I get that it is you against the world, and as a suburban white kid, you have a lot to rail against the world about.
    but the fact remains, you are F*c^i$g it up for the rest of your bretheren, read: ALL CYCLIST WHO APPRECIATE THE USE OF TRAILS.

    nobody, (hiker, cyclist, equestrian) appreciates a high speed fly by.
    it is rude, selfish and dangerous.
    stop and wait FFS, if you NEED to take that line at mach speed, make sure you can do it SAFELY.

    I remember when riding at Stemboat one day, and some snowboarder came close to clipping me and my G'Friend.
    As I watched him continue down the hill, I saw him lose control and plow into someone going at least 25mph.
    the guy got up and left immediately.
    then, three guys got up and followed him.................and were catching him as I lost sight of them on another trail.
    somebody got THUMPED that day.
    it's unfortunate, but clearly some people are in need of that type of 'behavior modification'
    I hope I never hit anyone, or am hit on a trail.
    but if I find that the accident was a result of arrogance and willful breaking of the trail code..............it will not be pleasant.

    WE understand that you are "getting your stoke on", OK we got it.
    we ride bikes too, so enough with the preaching.
    the point is that your not allowed to endanger other trail users through willful disregard of the RULES.
    nobody is special or exempt from the rules.
    grow up.
    do you really wan to be the guy that is responsible for the serious injury or death of another human being?

    specifically, the DH contingent that seems to be invloved in the Apex and Maxwell threads as of late.

    overall, ALL people who use a bicycle (of any type)to descend multi use trails.

    OK I'll Bite.

    Is this a joke?

    First off, people might take you serious if you used punctuation and correct spelling.

    Second, you may want to try riding your bike with a SEAT, or maybe you like the feel of the seatpost up your ASS.

    Third, **** YOU!

    I'll bite too.

    Sounds like you are a bit pissed off at the DH scene, which in fact, is a pertty cool thing. To me, it sounds like you got blown off of the trail by some DH'er who passed you and now you want to steoreo us all into one group of A$$holes.
    Hope I see you at the next race when I hop off of my XC bike at the end of the race then go hope on my DH rig for some practice runs.
    Oh and I agree that fast passing or whatever you call it sucks, but it's not cool to gourp all DH'ers into one group. If we were all in one group there would't only be one of us blowing past you, but a whole army! And you might even get run over! wow

    Edit: Being drunk had me really thinking that you were serious, disregard everthing that I jsut said and besides the part of the me riding the XC then going to ride practice for DH, i really do do that.
    Passion is what we all need, the rest is secondary.
    Yeah I ride fixed on occasion, get over it.

    I'm going to continue to do whatever it is that I want to do. I really don't give a crinkle cut chip what people have to say about it, and I don't care if people believe it screws anything up for anyone else.

    I'll do my best not to hit someone, and they should do their best to get the hell out of my way.

    Actually, I think the correct term is "XDHFRAMC".. And it does require a quick release seat clamp to qualify.

    I'll bite too. Stupid generalization? Yes. Some valid points? Yes. I ride my DH bike uphill as well as down, and I can tell you having some fvckwit not yield to me while I'm busting my ass up a hill sucks. I don't whine about it on here though, I make sure said fvckwit knows uphill has the right of way. And if he's an ass about it I will chase him down.

    But give the kids a chance, sometimes you just never think about yielding. I didn't yield when I was young until I cut off someone going uphill and he explained it to me. That and having some idiots (on Maxwell of all places...) nearly run me off the trail was enough to teach me a lesson.

    Now I love going as fast as possible, but I have to say when I'm hiking and someone blasts by me on a bike at mach eighty or whatever I get a little pissed off. I don't know if he's a good rider or not. I don't want to get hit by some idiot. I see out of control people going too fast and hitting others all the time when I snowboard.

    And finally to end my little rant. Just as many XC riders are guilty of this as DH'ers. MrSalty just seems to be jealous if you ask me... Get a big travel bike and see why we love it so much!

    dh,is a natural progression of all cycling.

    the same as xc came from road and cyclocross.

    i get that you are bitter at some people because some people have no manners,but to hate the hole dh, community is sad on your behalf.

    dont forget dh,fr, are the reason for the bikes we ride today.

    I don't get it?

    "nobody, (hiker, cyclist, equestrian) appreciates a high speed fly by."

    Are you kidding? I am a Cyclist and I appreciate a high speed fly by. Except when the cyclist is going uphill, in spandex, and leaves a bad smell of XC behind him.

    LOL.

    Hope I see you at the next race when I hop off of my XC bike at the end of the race then go hope on my DH rig for some practice runs
    Cool. Do you wear spandex on your DH runs? That would be sweet!
