    In 1 or 2 words, what does Mt. Biking mean to you?

    Hey ya'll. Pretty self explanatory....but what does this sport mean to you. I will start.

    Freedom.

    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...

    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?

    Pleasure and Pain.

    .... it's a fine line between pleasure & pain, you've done it once, you can do it again......


    Name that song.

    Bonus points for also naming the band.

    Oh, second "Bike Porn"
