    you look at them and smile...pause....smile real big.....pause...then in a low down...talk slowly...and say...that's what everyone says when they lack skills... I glad you say that too....just less lack of skill riders who I have to worry about on the good trails....you know the guy...the no talent guy that ruins everything by blowing out turns and all...I am sure glad you are not riding dh...then smile bigger...and if they say anything you just INTERRUPT them quickly ..dont let them talk and say ...whoa whoa ...slow down partner...it just a fact and you don't have to defend your lack of skills. and just look them in the eye and smile...and don't let them say anything else...just say you made your point, from experience I mad mine...discussion over...it that simple...do not let them talk, but you stay calm...they will get defensive and emotional....just keep telling them...don't worry...You are still my friend...you don't have to defend yourself
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    Don't, just get back to riding your bike.

    You'll have forgotten all about them by the first berm.

    Why do you have to say anything, do you bite easily?
    Let them say whatever they want to, you're not a child....or are you?

    You don't even need to say anything. Just smile and say "each to his own". You're apart of something that many people will never experience, and if they aren't into it, they aren't into it. Smile knowing that you are probably better than them at most things

    If it's coming from someone in lycra, on a carbon hardtail 29er, then there's really nothing that you can say.

    just use the universal comeback... "So is your face..."

    someones all like "downhill is stupid..."
    "so is your face."

    they can't touch you after that.. and if they try with some "that makes no sense!"
    "so is your face."

    Then strut away telling them to get on your level.

    (kidding)

    But in all seriousness, just ignore them. I hate people that get all in my face about opinions and views and such, don't be one of those guys. Just say "okay, cool" and walk away.

    but if you see them at the trails you gotta show off...

    lol, i deal with it all the time in the eastern canada forum.

    the best thing to do is invite them out for a day on your favorite dh trails to show you how it should be done...

    I'm curious to WHY they say it's stupid? my guess is they say it's stupid just to get a rise out of you but deep down inside they wish they had the balls to do it....

    " case a beer says you can't keep up "
    " That's not what your girlfriend said last night while I was plugging her hole "
    " Sorry that you're limiting yourself "
    " Do you get the rush of speed induced adrenalin from pedaling up a hill? "
    " There's a reason why it's the showcase for weekend race events "
    " I don't like wearing spandex "

    Thought DH/FR would be cooler in the US...Where I live, people would just be amazed on how many suspension do I need on my bike. They would laugh if we pushed uphill. I just put on my headphone and stare blankly at xc dudes, and people who aren't educated what the hell is going on with my bike and gear...I would like to ride a road bike someday though...I'd wear a full face riding around town, now that would be funny.

    lol, well that explains it.. they rather play with their balls and pat each other on the ass for having a "good game"

    them, " going out riding again?"
    you, " why yes i am, you guys playing bball?"
    them, " yes"
    you, " well have fun playing with each others balls! "

    so basically you're an idiot who cares what others think? Dude seriously, If I had a dime for the amount of times people yelled at me for skateboarding or tried to mock DH i'd be a rich man, and if I entertained every other one of them i'd have no time to ride.

    It's pretty simple, let those morons do what they think. Just ride your bike and be happy you found something that transcends activity and goes far beyond that.

    ^^^ No need to be name calling !!!

    Jake,
    You need to learn to let it go, or develop a slam them attitude, via select word choice that makes them feel stupid

    Has it occurred to you that these people might say this if you were into another sport ? ... Like, perhaps, underwater basket weaving.

    More than likely, they're doing this to get you (psychologically), and you're falling for the trap.

    Learn to ignore, or learn to get the upper-hand via one well placed sentence

    Perhaps,
    "You're right ... But the girls I know, aren't into immature wanna-be's who only offer insults" ... Then ride away ... Would suffice.
    Although, that is also part of their game.

    But hey,
    I'm only 50 ... What do I know

    do whatever you want dude. If your over DH, end it. If your not keep riding. I tore 3 ligaments in my knee, fractured my tibia, tore my meniscus and tore my patella tendon. It sucks, but that **** isnt stopping me, i count everyday until I can pin freight train again.

    what are we gonna do? Tell you otherwise? I mean really. You got hurt, sucks but all of us go through it, im 38, and none of my injuries are gonna make me hang it up.

    Injury is part of this, if you can't or don't want to deal with it, it sounds like you already have your answer.

    sounds like you are trying WAY to hard... heal up, take about 10steps back and take the time to develop your skills Verses trying to force them and do more then what you capable of. and don't let the fear beat you .

    Help? You're asking me what you should do with your life. You should do what makes you happiest, free-ist and healthiest. None of us have your best interest at heart, we all ride and love it.

    My guess is if you've been doing this for 6 months and have blown yourself apart already you might be a hazard to all of us on the trails. My guess is your the guy who rides like a pro but with none of the smarts or skills.

    Try riding at your level and not mine or someone elses. But most importantly do whatever the hell makes you happy.

    when i started dh'ing at about the same age(16/17) i didn't throw my body down the 1st black diamond trail as fast as i could. i took it slow and did what i was comfortable and confident enough to do. if it's not for you it's not for you... try not to base that decision on broken bones and a bruised ego

    I quite understand how forums work, thanks. Whether he was asking everyone or not I replied as if he was.

    If he can't stop himself from doing stupid things because his friends tell him to maybe he should quit. Last thing I want is a fun trail closed because kid has to eat blended fruit from a straw because he couldnt tell his posse of morons no.

    yeah, you need to heal up, stop being drawn into peer pressure, slow down and develop your skills more. if they are doing drops that doesn't mean you have to. never have i ever rode with anyone who pressured me to the point of doing something i wasn't ready to do. after about a minute or two of badgering they usually let up knowing damn well i wasn't going to kill myself trying to impress them and respected that i knew enough to ride within my own limits

    Just take off the silver part you'll still have the pretty anodized partion, and you'll ride much faster. As fast as a 29er!

    Kid, im a grown ass man, with grown ass man money. Not the whiney school boy asking about what to do about the morons at my school who think my activity is dumb.

    When I post-up asking for the best socks or how you squeeze your grips feel free to slay me for asking stupid questions.

    With all the kiddies posting silly things I almost thought I was on pinkbike, but no one mentioned trading a xbox or playstation so I knew I wasnt there.

    if he quits because I said to stop being a pansy or the other dude for succumbing to peer pressure so be it.

    Quit being such panties and ride for yourselves. what's so hard about that, and if you can't take someone on a forum giving you **** you better stay off the internet.

    Im sorry kids, carry-on. I'll head back over to ridemonkey where not eveyone gets so bent out of shape over the internet.

    I'm not getting bent out of shape big boy. I found this quite entertaining. It's Hilarious how you keep acting like the big man on campus and everyone who Dosnt agree with you is a pansy

    Some offer advise, others offer immature personal emotions
    Which do you think provides the better result ?

    To the OP, don't worry about them. Don't come up with funny comments or anything because it makes it worse. You see the kids every day so you don't want to start too much with them. Simply nod, smile and keep on.

    I'm 20 but back in highschool i raced fourwheelers. It was my life. Got to where I'd draw brand logos and everything on all my papers and stuff. Just doodling but I constantly caught myself doing things like this. People thought I was crazy and I wasn't the "cool" kid that played sports and hung out with jocks. Senior year, I picked up sponsorships and made a name for myself locally. People knew me as "the kid that races fourwheelers".
    Have people come up to me randomly that have heard of me and I've never seen them before. Comes to find out, now that I did make a name for myself, the "cool" kids talk about me like they know me.

    It's all in growing up. Keep your head up and keep doing what you enjoy. They will fade into the distance, won't take their sports anywhere and in ten years you'll still be rocking!

    I dont have a DH bike or any down hill trails near me, but to me it looks like DH rocks bigtime, looks like the most fun you could have on two wheels..
    Dont ever worry what other dudes say about your passion.
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....
