    Freeride Glossary

    Help .. please! I have no idea most of the time what the foo you guys are talking about. I mean, here's an excerpt from an article on PinkBike:

    We were having a blast hitting some new gaps and pinning some fresh dirt when we ran into a fairly large hip that was a bit technical to get speed for. Our whole gang practiced the run in for about half an hour, each of us trying to decide if it was worth the risk to hit this new hip gap.

    The lip itself was a bit poor compared to the quality of the other lips on this trail. I decided that it wasnít worth the risk to hit the gap, but Jesse decided to Ginny pig the booter, and see how she goes.


    So .. is there a glossary of FR/DH terms out there? Or perhaps you can help a non-hucking XC'er by posting some terms and meanings.

    Pinning: nailin' it, shreddin the gnar, going mad nasty quickzorz, feelin the vibe, in the zone, etc.

    Hip: type of jump.

    Run in: part of trail thats just before an obstacle, be it wood, dirt or whatever you make obstacles out of.

    Ginny Pig: First person to hip an obstacle/jump/whatever. usually gets mad props when he eats sh*t because he has served his friends well and taken one for the team.

    Booter: Similar to a kicker. a jump that "boots" you up vertically.

    What on earth does "BRAAAAP" or "BRAAAAPING!" mean?
    About buying a bike:

    BRAAAPPP and Pinning it are usually interchangeable. i always shout BRAAPPP before i hit a drop for the first time. Helps clear the mind.

    "Fo SHizo My Bizo."
    Means
    "Hey Bob, go do thet drop over there."
    "Heeeezay for Sheezay!"
    Means
    "Hey Carl, you screamed like a girl off that last drop."

    So dont act a foo and remember you too can DH slang now with the greatest of them. You and your posse can now put the smack down on the local DH trails and school all the poser XC wannabe DH G's....

    here are some more..

    digger : really bad wreck / crash
    banger : when you land a hard trick or land a big trick really smooth
    dead sailor : when you are in the air and kind of just lock up or get all stiff
    bail : when you give up on a trick after you have started
    rag doll : when you wreck and go flailing down the mountain
    death cookies : those baseball size rocks that knock your bike / front tire around the trail
    gutter bunny : some one who just rides a bike to get around ( not a insult just a slang term)
    LBS : Local Bike Shop
    endo : when you go over the handle bars


    thats about all i can think of, are their any for the letter U?

    18 means hella retarded. Stupid.

    Yadadamean means you know?

    Thizz is pills

    Scrapers are cars

    Perkin is drunk

    Thizzin is high

    Hopefully that helps you.

    A hip is a jump with a turn in it of at least 190*.

    Pinning it is used after you end up in the hospital. Someone went too fast, and went to the hospital to get pinned up. So its when you get hurt.

    i have never heard pinning it used that way. Everyone i shred with says "pinning it" as they are going as fast as they can. like when you pin the throttle on a dirt bike.

    Yeah I already explained this. It is not used in that sense. Please get your vocab straight because I find it really annoying when people misuse words.

    Dude, I've explained this like 12 times. It is not going fast in dirtbiking. I don't know who you dirtbike with, but I ride with James Stewart and we never use it to mean 'go fast.' thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    yea i dont know what you are talking about. it seems like to me (and everyone who is not you) pinning it is going all out. I race DH in college in CO and we definitly always say pinning it in this manner or we just simply scream BRAAPPP..!!!! Thats why people alwas say

    "Pin it to Win it" what sense would that make if you were talking about getting wrecked?

    EDIT: I dont dirt bike so i dont know who James Stewart is, but i tend to ignore people who name drop like you just did... claimer.

    Sweet I wish I raced DH in college in Colorado too.... Unfortunately that doesn't change the true definition of pin it. Think what you want to think, but you obviously haven't been freeriding very long. When I met Josh Bender he used it in the same sense as me, too.

    So you are gonna sit here and tell me that when Graves had "pin it ya fairy" written on his top tube it meant go fall so they have to pin the bones back together? I hear ya on the fact that "pinning it" could mean what you are saying in terms of a broken bone but 99.9% of the times its used in the context of MTBing i'm gonna say you are wrong... feel free to continue your argument.

    FYI, "SRALP" is the new term. It can be used many different ways. As in, I sralped that run. Or, man this bike really sralpes turns. Or, opps, I think I sralped my pants.

    Now get hip.

    Haha, actually Coma13 said it about something in Fontucky. It just kind of stuck. So now we shralp (apparently I've been mis-spelling it) the gnar daily. Shralp'n good times.
    But I will have to research this "Debbie does ...... " you talk of, maybe I'll shralp it solo a few times.
