    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

    Hey, it's nice to be appreciated at any age! Which might be the gist of this thread...

    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."

    El Chingon to me when I apologized for balking at another of his drops to flat.

    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"

    You're haulin' A$$!
    -my regular riding partner, hauling up a hill I'd had major problems with before

    " ...Do you need a checkup from the neckup?!"
    -co-worker, learning I was doing the 40mi livestrong ride

    "You... on that bike, in those shorts? Hot. "
    -one of my biking newbie buddies

    After rigging up my gf's bike to work all proper, I look at our bikes, all locked up before heading into a store and say "Those two look badA$$!"
    She says "Just yours, baby."
    It's all those little ego-boosting affirmations... =)

    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...
