    Are you guys elitist hipsters too?

    I plan on getting back into riding after recovering from being injured.
    Been many years since I was active.

    I found another forum a bike forum...not to name names...lol

    I was kinda shocked to see the elitism and hipsterness in full blown fashion. Is every biker a total douchebag nowdays? Am I better off being a lonewolf like in the book Bike snob?

    I have my 96 Gt karakorum still. Last bike I bought before I built a new house and got married and hung it up in the garage. Its still almost a virgin.

    All this serperation of car drivers/ bike riders and elitism....over bicycles...really? WTF.

    Tell me its not so with the mountain biking crowd. Tell me it's just the road guys....that you guys are cool and it will be ok. That you think my toyota 4x4 is cool .

    Im prepared just to lurk and keep my mouth shut if thats the community here. I want to be involved like I am with my toyota hobby. But Ill be damned if Ill contribute on a forum full of douchebags that think they are better than everyone else....just because they ride a bike.

    Give it to me straight guys. Tell me Im home now or to GTFO.

    Dave

    Toyota 4x4, ugh. You need to get a beemer.

    Mountain bikers are well known to be elitist hipsters. It is us who the roadie pretender hipsters are trying to emulate. What a bunch of posers!

    Back to lonewolf I suppose. What a shame too. Was gonna see if my elite tig skills could have been of use to locals and such. You know try and be more social and help guys with thier bikes and all...but it seems the douchebaggery has even made it here.

    as long as you dont have an opinion here you'll be ok.
    try and stay clear of anything too left or right wing cause you'll get called a nazi or a hippy for having a different opinion that someone else who is obviously better than you doesn't agree with.

    sorry just kidding



    wait am I?

    I got the popcorn out between post #1 and post #2. Might be a new record. OP, please have your username changed to "lonewolf".

    Dude, you self admittedly built your own house. You're the biggest elitist hipster in the world. I bet you have a mustache too. And wear lumberjack flannel.

    What is an elitist hipster? I don't wear my sisters skinny jeans. 50 is in my rear view mirror. My garage is so full of bikes that I can't fit my 99 corolla in there. I do have to deal with Ma$$hole drivers on my bike commute though. I do not however drink PBR's or smoke.

    If you can manage to be insulted by a bike forum, you don't belong on the internet. We all have opinions and attitudes. I don't care if you don't have an opinion or attitude, but if you can't handle the attitudes of others, piss off and grow some skin.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Let's see... if I were to walk up to you and ask "are you a turd-gurgling scumbag bootlicker too?" would you say "no, thanks for asking" or "go f*** yourself"?

    So maybe now you can see why you are getting a hostile response.
