    Mine happened when a buddy and I were riding, and I was just learning clipless....

    Couldn't unclip, fell off a 4ft ledge into a river...100% under water....

    First thing he says after I get up is..."Dude, your seat's crooked."

    "If it didn't hurt so bad I'd come up there and kick your ass"

    Said to a friend who was laughing to tears after I broke my collarbone while dirt jumping waaay back in 1993. This was just after he said "you didn't break anything" and I could barely breathe.

    I still ride with that guy and he's still telling everyone how funny I looked flying 15 ft in the air and coming straight down on my front tire.

    "You made me pee myself"

    Said by a bum in a Prospect Park, Brooklyn that was watching me and a friend decend this imposible set of log steps on a steep bank. And judging by the gigantic wet spot on the crotch of his pants, he did.

    know a guy who i've heard would send his bike over a drop - if it seemed to land ok then he would hit it - first try - never bailed.

    2 times are a tie

    I was doing a 12 hour, and being 37 enjoy any compliment that doesn't include "for your age". I was riding behind two guys, one in his 40's the other in his 20's. The first guy, in his 40's says to the other guy, she is hot. The other guy says "I didn't see her" So, I pass him and he tells the other guy, oh yeah she is hot! (Just helps a bit when you are married with 2 children and getting older)
    Second one was when I did a 10 hour ride with all male guys. Was told I was one of 3 people who they never saw suffer. Sometimes as a women you need to be "above the guys" in endurance(maybe not ability).
    I don't want to sound like I am " all that" because I am definitely not! Just nice to be appreciated when I am aging

    I started this thread because I really enjoy mountain biking---and to get feedback on the trail from others in the same state of mind is enjoyable times two. There's lots of crap going down in the world today, but when you have the rubber side down and others are giving you thumbs up and smiles on the trail...you gotta love it.

    Coolest thing anyone ever said to me while I was biking was when I first started. I'm out on my road bike and I get a flat tire on a hot afternoon. There's no shade, I'm bummed, and I'm dealing with the patch kit and frame pump. I'm just getting the tire pumped back up when this very fit, very beautiful woman cruises by on her road bike and asks "Are you doing OK?" I say yeah, thanks, and she flashes me a smile and rolls on.

    Backhanded compliment

    "Hey, I just hope I'm still able to ride a bike when I'm your age."

    Well, I was at the LBS where I am the king of broken parts, and I was holding my rear wheel in my hand and there was some schmo in the shop looking around at trek "hybrids", my rear wheel has a Maxxis Holy Roller running about 90 p.s.i. and the guy is like "Wow that thing is huge, where around(this is downtown in Lake Worth, Florida, not know for urban mountain biking) here can you ride that hard?", I thought for a second, and right next to my LBS is a post office with an 8 stair, and I said " You know the post office? I ride down those stair all the time." While bombing an 8 stair isn't all that impressive the guys look on his face was like "WTF?!?", and so that's my story.

    I respectfully disagree. Glocks are for people that want a handgun that will always perform as expected. They're simply the best. There's a Glock, and then there's everything else. My HK's smoother in the trigger, but I've had it jam. My Glocks have never, under any circumstance, jammed. Granted, in the middle of the night, if I have a choice, I'm grabbing the 12 gauge, but if I have one choice for a pistol, its a Glock.

    On a guided ride once I hit a rather deep unmarked hole flipped over the bars and stood up and exclaimed "There's a hole there!" the guide goes "Yeah we dont tell people about it that way they never end up hitting it"

    Kind of a strange comment

    I was riding at Hunter Mountain and there was a scottish festival going on that day and there was a man riding down the lift in a kilt with his frank and beans hangin out for the world to see. I said "Umm sir just to let you know your balls are hanging out" (I have no shame) He replied "They cant be as big as yours if you ride that thing (points to my bike) down a mountain"

    the 2 best quotes i got 1.me and a friend were zooming down this little down hill section on a trail that is clearly allowed for bikes and as we fly by this hiker he yells " ARE YOU GUYS F#CKING CRAZY? THIS IS A WALKIN TRAIL!!!" and 2. i was riding with my girl friend once and i went to do something (i forget what now)and i ate it so bad, she looks at me and in a caalm and quiet voice says "rick, are you dead?" i have many more but cant think of them this is waht just came to mind.

    The first time I took my girlfriend riding (now wife) we were coming back to the truck. She got there first and I came in holding the front brakes hard to slide on the front tire. Her only comment was "showoff"
    Mind you that I had tried that little trick countless times and that was the first time I nailed it.

    there has been a few,but two come to my mind right now.
    we were gearing up to hit another down hill run at south mountaing park in arizona when two hikers were just coming out the trail and the woman said"you guy are doing that on bikes,you guys are tought"that was pretty cool.
    another time i'm comuting into work on my fs bike cus my commute bike had a flat,i'm riding alog minding my own thing,and out no where this guy driving a old p.o.s. chevy truck tells at me as he passes me"why don't you buy a car you poor bastard?" i had no choice but to smile and blow a kiss to him.if he only knew that my bike cost more than that p.o.s. he was driving...and that i had two nice trucks parked at my driveway...what a looser.
    I heard the mission bell
    And i was thinking to my self
    This could be heaven or this could be hell...

    In an orienteering race someone asked: "Have you seen Steve?"
    Now this isn't funny since it was a team race. Actually he was joking as I learned later on: Lot's of people started asking each other about the whereabouts of "Steve". I joined that asking community. Nobody found "Steve". But it turned out that the winner of that race was called Steve. So where is the sense in that?

    Try not to kill yourself

    From an older hiker as I rode by and said "good morning". What is really great about that is I usually get yelled at from hikers.

    "You're on a hardtail?"

    About 5 years ago I was riding solo and caught up to these three guys on a rock infested downhill. We all flew down the hill, I was stuck on the wheel of the guy in front of me like fly to flypaper. We get to the bottom and I see that they are all riding full suspension rigs and they notice that I was hanging with them on my hardtail, the guy at the back says, "You're on a hardtail?"

    Made my day for sure.

    You rode down that, on that? Said to me at Wilmot Mountain in WI by someone in a group in full squishy rigs after I bombed down the hill as fast as possible on my completely rigid Dyno Moto-7 seven with only a rear brake.

    Riding with my buddies to the trailhead, we passed an overweight $5 dollar crack whore.. She yells out, "Hey do fries go with those shake!"

    After that we all agreed to do more long rides.. and ditch the lycras.

    Let me preface this by saying that I'm not a great technical rider, and am a bit more cautious at 55 than when I was 35. But I ride when I can and enjoy it. I was out one day on a trail with some roots and such (large roots!), and came across a man and his young daughter (maybe 6-7) walking along the trail. They moved to the left (on the smooth part of the trail), leaving the right side (with some large roots) as the way around. I was carrying a bit of speed, so figured it would be no problem. Hit the roots, front lifted enough that after hitting the first root, it kind of "floated" over the rest of the section, and the back rode right over them. I heard the little girl let out a WOW!, as I went past. Made my day--I'm not a great rider, but may have appeared as one when I cleared that section.

    Was a spectator at the Nationals at Mt. Snow, VT many yrs ago (ca. 95-96). I was riding an old Paramount MTB (non waterford) and a fellow spectator comes up to me and says, 'hey I used to ride one of those frames."

    "Really", I replied. "Why'd you replace it?"

    "cuz it was a piece of sh1t."

    I still liked that bike, but in retrospect the number of them that broke may lead one to belive that they were in fact a POS

    The nicest things people ever said to me were on the road, and were related to the advocacy message on my clothing. A driver saw the Oil-Free and Happy design, and said, "I really appreciate what you're trying to do".

    A couple of road cyclists passed me, and laughed and made some nice comments about the "Powered by Sweat" T-Shirt I was wearing - "I like the T-Shirt" and "Cool design".

    I just got done adjusting my rear der. (cable stretch) so i took it out in the trails behind my house, keep in mind they are really easy singletrack and theres only about half a mile of trail (there used to be a solid 7-8 miles of trail but a new development ruined that) but its a good spot to test the bike to make sure its working properly before I take it on a real ride. There were 3 kids (maybey 13-14 yrs old) on BMX bikes testing out a small dirt jump they had just built and as I rode past they mad a sarcastic comment along the lines of "Nice Helmet" except they dropped a couple of words in there about a bundle of sticks. I just smiled at them rode past looped around and was coming back as I watched an un helmeted kid go nose first into the backside of the jump. My reply was "Are you alright?" He got up replied he was okay and I then said "Wanna borrow my helmet?" and rode off it was like instant Kharma and was oh so satisfying.

    I was on a ride with a bunch of people I didnt know at Demo in santa cruze at the top of saw pit. and I was on my stumpy hard tail, all the other guys has some kind of FS.

    Guy behind me: How are you on the down hills ?
    me: no Idea, I have never been here before.
    guys behind me: Ill yell at you If I need to pass.
    me: no problem, that or rub my tire.

    at the bottem everyone held up to regroup and be sure that everyone made it down ok. after I stopped it took another 4 or 5 min for the next guy to roll up.
    he said, "dude after like 3 turns I couldn't see you!"

    that made me feel pretty good.

    Hum.... probably the boyfriend, telling me on one of our rides that I am a great climber and that he has a hard time keeping up... that really was nice to hear, coming from a man that has been eyeball deep in cycling for 30+ years.

    My first time on a trail with my riding buddy he says
    "oh yea, this is a walking trail, we aren't suppose to be on here. If they catch us it's a 100 dollar fine"

    was climbing a paved road to get to the trail head and just happened to be wearing a yellow jersey. i passed by a father with his 2 kids and the dad said something like "look kids it's Lance Armstrong"

    my reply was "Actually, it's Lance Honer but thanks for the compliment."

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread....

    BTW, I'm a BIG fan of Mr. Horse!

    my glock jams... still like it, though

    When I was in college our frat house sat on top of a hill and there was a walkway that was paved and flowing long down to a tabletop made of blacktop to go over railroad tracks. I'd always take it pretty fast on my junk Target FS beaster bike just to see how much air I could get (never thought I got that much). On one day on the way to class I go bombing down the trail and I see a girl coming up going the other way, walking. It was too late to try to slow down and she was on the other side but she was talking on her cell phone, I thought I'd just hit it and she'd be fine. I hit the jump and land ok, I hear her scream back at me "you A**hole, you almost jumped over me!" She was pretty short but it still made my day.
