    I would not be surprised one bit if they had something with Brad again...

    I would like to see them have at least one page about freeriding, like last years.
    Man, I was so stoked to see a picture of the crack ON THE COVER last year.

    I think we should see about submitting some pictures of us hitting up Ussery, Rock Islands, The Red Cliffs, and maybe a few from the Crack again.

    I'd like to see the Jon Gould/Jon C. Gould versus Earthpig drunken beer crawl up Sidewinder. Winner gets a fitting with Wobblenaught.

    Disappointing

    Not one of EP's suggested articles to be found. Nothing about spackle or KY or all the things that make this place fun too.

    There's always next year I guess...

    I think a pre-ride vs. post-ride monkey spank shoot out would be a good article.

    Dernit EP you didn't warn us that your content wasn't work-friendly. Now my interns all think I have a monkey fetish. Months of educating them re: the joys of sheep, curry combs and horse traquilizers has gone down the tubes (so to speak).
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Yeah, I know I'm going off the topic this thread is going, but I was a bit dissapointed with the bike issue. There wasn't much about actually mountain biking, almost no good pictures, and basically nothing about freeriding, bmx, or cyclocross, although they put all of those things on the cover.
    Apparently, there's gonna be another bike issue, which is pretty sweet if you ask me. Maybe if we get lucky, they'll get some mountain biking crap in it. I send the editor man some pictures, and he said he'll try to fit them in...

    Now back to spanking the monkey...

    I guess we should be really ashamed of ourselves for exposing the youth of our fine conservative community to this page of mountain biker filth.
    When we teach all children from age 5 on to meditate just 1 hour per week on compassion war will end within 3 generations.

    I am part of that youth. I have the developmental age of a 12 y/o and the metabolism of a hummingbird. My veterinarian confirmed my developmental age and metabolism. So did my plumber, drywaller, OB/Gyn & urologist. The animal trainer said I was not allowed in the primate center, and confirmed I did not play well with others. He also said I should working on my climbing ability and descending skills. The phlebotomist also said I scream like a 12 y/o wuss when stuck.

    Are ya gonna eat that...or should I wait for the post office to pick it up?

    The issue was horrible. Looked and read like it was thrown together last minute by a bunch of writers who know a little about biking a lot about nothing. that page on Campy Record and the $$$ frames. Hahahaha. And most of the photos were old. But there were some big ads which is always nice from those who like ads.

    Did you tell editor man about this site? What did he say about your constructive criticism?
