    What A D!ck

    So we were out having a great ride, and came across another group of riders going the opposite way. We continued to ride in opposite directions until the guy I was riding with decided he wanted to join the other group.

    So we turn around and rocket Mach 5 to catch up. When we do one of the riders (who I am familiar with) on his tubeless fatbike has a leak. So a few minutes go by as he does the Stans dance, while we are doing the "mosquito gtfo" dance. I notice there is no hint of Stans at the problem area, and ask when the last refresh was. "Its been a while", which was followed by a few more fancy Stans moves.

    I then offer up my brand new Park Tool patch kit. With open arms the rider accepted my offer, which was perfect for the application (pats self on back ). I then suggest he wait a few minutes before putting air back in the tire, to let the glue set. 15 seconds later he is pumping away. He then hands me the patch kit, feels the tire, and takes off.

    Not a single head nod, smile, or even a slight wisper of "thank you" was noted.

    The lead group then proceeded to hop of perfectly good single track, and onto the road. Which didn't suit our tastes, so we doubled back onto areas meant for mtnbikes.

    Later in the ride I hit a tree and almost died. What a dick er


    End of story.

    If you need some pats on the back, maybe sharing ain't your thing.

    How do you know if your bike has a Stava?

    Maybe dude was upset that a simple thanks wasn't offered and as stated in his story, sharing is his thing.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    While I have to admit that most people would have shown some appreciation, was the hitting a tree and almost dying a result of being so pissed off that you weren't concentrating?

    If so, there is a moral to this story.

    I am curious about these "fancy Stans moves".

    Anyway.

    If you do someone a favor because of the thank you on the other end, then you are doing it for the wrong reason.

    And if you posted this because you thought it was remotely interesting, you posted for the wrong reason.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    I lent my teammate a spare tube on a group ride once, before the season started. He offered a tube/$$ as thanks, but it wasn't that big a deal. He then went on to crush the competition and win the omnium at the end of the season. I like to think that he wouldn't have done that if I hadn't given him that tube.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    And if you read through this thread thinking it would be different from all the rest, you're doing it wrong.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    I usually play a game of Keep Away with the other rider til he/she says "Please" and "Thank You"......then I pat myself on the back and say to myself....."good guy....way to go".
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.

    I too would like a more detailed explanation of the "Stan's dance" and "mosquito gtfo dance" and why one would inspire the other.

    Perhaps they were not related at all and you were actually fending off mosquitoes, but the way your story read makes it sound like a situationaly contagious form of turrets.

    That's the beauty of this time of year on this forum. Schools out and half of these discussions are teenagers arguing moot points with one another.

    Why stop at hugging? No telling what the suggestions would be from Tone/s in another forum.

    Don't let it change you.

    Glad you didn't die and stuff.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???
