    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    The means and the end.

    As for slang, I've always been partial to "endo." I love the way it's three words, "end over end" condensed into one word and a letter, to make another word. So clever, and it really rolls nicely off the tongue. And it's always so lovely when someone endos; we usually get a great big laugh or at least a nice adrenaline rush. And I think us mountain bikers have given it a better meaning (more appropriate, at the very least) than those BMXers, who use the term to describe what we very well know is a nose wheelie. (also a good one.)

    Uh...

    Joy & Passion


    2nd part: the phrase "Bike Porn"

    3rd part*: I believe that even on the simplest bike ride,
    so much happens: We feel things, see things, think things,
    and say things that we otherwise might not.
    It all adds up to something more powerful, and
    more ineffable, than a few sentences can express.

    Hill therapy

    I may have borrowed that from a Mike Ferrentino article in Bike. Still seems to sum it up for me.

    The term I've always found interesting is bottom bracket. Why do they call it a bottom bracket? Yes it's on the bottom and it holds or "brackets" the crank, but does anyone know the origin of this term?

    1) Friendly competition

    2) "Dabber!!". I love yelling it at my friends!! And they love yelling it at me! It's the best when you and your buddy are doing an insane technical or steep climb and you get to yell "DABBER!" as you pass them stopped on the side of the trail. I like when it's yelled at me cause it forces me to do better the next time. Next time means go down and clean it right there!!!

    My two words worth...

    Broke...again.
    Tripple meaning. What happens to my bike, whay happens to me, and my financial situation due to the previous two meanings.

    Favourite slang word(s)? High side and huck. Do one often, the other rarely. Those that ride with me know which is which.

    Tim...Always broke...again.
    Yes I'm a smooth rider. Bowling ball falling down the stairs smooth.

    As far as favorite slang... I dunno... but how many times can you mention how much you have in the rear ... and not have it be derogatory?
