    I want less passion for riding and these boards!

    Some guys take this sport a bit too serious!

    I know you're being a facetious wiseguy here, but I must admit there are others with way more passion than myself.

    Mountain biking is the greatest, most fun thing I've ever done, but when I come to these boards I see lots of people who seem to ride much more - and seemingly enjoy it much more - than I do.

    Blasphemy!!!!


    Seriously, still pretty new at the sport, but quickly fell in love with it.
    Great exercise, great fun, great experiences, great stories, etc.
    Not to mention seeing myself get better and improving on almost every ride is awesome.

    I love to ride but the unbelievable intensity some people bring to the sport is insufferable. Guys get super wound about certain bike companies, trails, and wheel sizes. I have a total scum bucket insult my family because of something I said about a bike company this loser likes. Lets let the air out a bit....

    I like the word facetious!

    There are way too many tryhards on this site. The info gained here can be invaluable, and theres some really awesome people on here, but some of them... relax a bit.

    Who cares if I lube my chain once a month instead of every fifteen minutes.

    This is a cry for help. Are you in an "indoor state" too?

    You're turning black metallic.
