    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.

    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!

    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?

    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.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    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.

    I am definitely capable of being a major douchebag and proud of it, too.

    It's not just cyclists, the entire global population is like this now. Duh, open your eyes.

    (peaks out of scenic woodlands with moon in the background, you are not sure if it is real...or a velvet painting at the flea market)

    At least you guys are funny. Ill stick around. I just let the bike Nazis rub my nerves on the other forum today. I went half retard and got banned.
    (never go full retard)

    I got smoked by a car on a Roadking about 10 years ago and it took out a couple disc and a vertabrea. Ive since ruptured 4-5 more disc in back and neck at work (I own a cutsom tile shower business) So I have been pretty gimped up and home since May. I was thinking dusting off the bike would help with some core strength when/if I get a this dealt with. I might have to get surgery again.

    Thats why Im here. I want to get the GT roadworthy...was like new when I put it up, It replaced a trek I snapped the frame on.

    Im a mountain bike guy. But not some elitist hipster. Cant stand em.
    Was just prodding to see if anyone had a sense of humor anymore.

    Here she is....

    I wasn't aware that hipsters rode mountain bikes. Too few opportunities for display. Eventually you have to hit the trail. I rode 18 miles of single track here in central Louisiana today and didn't see a soul. Not so much as a hiker.

    Seriously, I've see hipsters before but never on the trail.

    Are you the obvious patrol or did you not read the thread?

    To be honest (which I am as well as handsome) I never outskilled the bike back then, so I doubt 30 lbs, grey hair, and not riding for many years have sharpened my skills alot. Im lucky to get in my 4runner right now.

    Lets see your bike there hotdog....I bet mine is like twice as cool just because its a virgin still. Yours is probably a clapped out whore.
    You should post a pic...of it all leaned up in a scenic background with lighting and stuff.

    If I can reasonably recover...and get my riding legs back...a new bike is def in the future. Hell...I need 6 months to catch upthe tech on these space bikes you guys ride now. Suprised they dont have abs and airbags.

    It will always be a hardtail though. I aint no sissy. Going from 40mm to 100mm travel sounds kinda cool though.

    Toyota 4X4s are cool, and Audis crush Bimmers.

    I am no hipster, but I am an Elitist, MTB should rule the world, roadies should get hit by cars and learn that it is better to hit a stationary object (tree) than being hit by a moving object (lorry).
    And 29ers rule MTB.
    Peace Out!

    dude, this forum is full of smartassery, if anything else. Come in with any kind of expectations or stereotypes, and folks will gladly conform for you to create a comedic spectacle for the rest of us.

    I know a few hipsters who ride mountain bikes...but they're not the worst of the hipster crowd with the pretentiousness. They just look funny, mostly.

    Read up a bit, and you'll get a feel for the place. There are a few parts of the forum where the atmosphere is definitely different than other parts.

    Most of the technical forums are pretty matter-of-fact. In Off Camber, don't take ANYTHING seriously. There's almost always a double meaning or sarcasm somewhere. The 29er forum is where all the people with inferiority complexes hang out, and they try to cover it up with their bigger wheels, which are "obviously" better than yours. The 29er Components forum is where you go to ask about 29er specific components like pedals and grips and saddles.

    There are some other gems in here, but I'll let you discover them yourself.

    Elitist was when on the other site when they argued with me then attacked cause I said it was stupid to run a red light on a bike. They actually think they have the right to do it.
    Whatever. I'd try and stop if someone got in front of me...but Id beat there ass if it they make me hit them out of smug stupidity. Bikes scratch cars all up. Might even pop a tire....lol

    That is not elitist. In Idaho, traffic laws permit cyclists to treat red lights as yield signs. It does not mean they can blow through with cross traffic, but it means they can cross on red if there is no cross traffic.

    The law makes sense in light of the fact that many lights on sensors will not trip for bicycles. Especially carbon ones with very little metal. Stop at the wrong light with very little auto traffic and you could be sitting there for hours. Folks in many other states like that law and choose to treat red lights that way.

    There is a crowd who just runs red lights without even slowing or looking. Those riders are the idiots.
