    Carbon sucks.

    And so does steel, aluminum and ti.

    And all disc brakes suck and all disc rotors suck and all disc pads are the wrong pads.

    Singlespeed is stupid and gears are for wusses. Fatbikes suck, 29ers suck, 26ers suck. Racers suck and they're ruining everything, and old bearded guys suck because they want everything to be just like it was.

    And anyone who bought a fatbike after me sucks because they don't get it like I do. And anyone who bought a fatbike before me sucks because they are stuck in the past.

    Fasterkatts suck, surly sucks, salsa sucks, chinese carbon sucks, custom frames suck, all tires suck, all wheels suck. Sand sucks. Snow sucks. Dirt sucks.

    Anyone who rides differently than me sucks. Anyone who tries to ride the same way I do sucks.

    I really wish everyone understood how much they are doing everything wrong but I wish they wouldn't copy me. There are just things that I know as a fatbiker that no one else could possibly have figured out.

    I read that in Ewan McGregor's voice. If you saw Trainspotting, you understand.

    Maybe fat bikes getting popular is going to mean that this subforum sucks a little more. Don't mean to sound hipster about it, but there's a bit of truth to it. Damn. For a time, the best forum I'd ever read.

    Anyway I think you need to get some ride time in today, man. Friendly advice.

    A bunch of people are still racing the Arrowhead! That is a notion that does not suck.

    Yup. Also, Just noticing a trend in posts lately. Never knew that people could have such strong opinions about brake pads until I started mountain biking...

    At least the forums are active! If you can mentally filter the garbage, there's still good information being shared. My local board is completely dead, killed by Facebook.

    And expensive bikes suck, the off-brand cheap models suck too.

    I'll be honest, I'd love to see more people talking about riding. Especially when I'm not really able to ride.

    That's nothing! Didn't you catch the thread on what to use on the end of your derailleur cable to keep it from fraying?

    According to my sailing instructor, the wind doesn't blow, it sucks. Basic Aerodynamics seems to back him up on this one.

    Awesome!

    Actually no that post sucked too because saying things suck well umm sucks. I just learned today that apparently I too suck, came as quite a shock because I thought I was pretty f-ing awesome!

    Just to add to the list... Shimano sucks, Sram sucks, Campy sucks, Rock shox sucks, X fusion sucks, Specialized rocks, Fox rocks!

    Oh and this....

    Fox doesn't have a fatbike fork so they suck. Also, if they make a fatbike fork they're just cashing in on a stupid trend and they suck. And if they make a fatbike fork they also suck because they are ruining the elegant simplicity of fatbikes.

    Perhaps one of the mods can sticky a list of all the grumpy old buckfiddious threads but it might take too long to compile and it would still suck!

    That didn't suck too badly.
    The fact that you know enough about boy bands to pass judgment? That sucks.

    I think sucky attitudes suck and grumpy people suck, I guess I suck time to time as well. People who make up words like sucky suck ginormously

    Oh and people that put down carbon only because they want it but don't have it suck. That being said I have carbon and yes it sucks.

    I like this thread even though it sucks!! That is all..

    Speaking of vacuums, Electrolux had an ad campaign for quite a while, "Nothing sucks like Electrolux"......

    And yes, $400 XX1 cassettes suck, even worse.

    Someone was selling a complete xx1 setup at the bike swap for $600. Shifter, derailleur, cassette, crank, all the stuffs. I didn't have $600. That sucks.
