    You guys are doing it all wrong.

    It isn't how you get the bikes to the trail, it is how many you can get there at one time.

    Now this guy has passion!

    So let me see if I understand the passion here...

    Ostentatious = Rich?

    I know a lot of rich people who drive crappy cars and a few in debt idiots who drive expensive ones.

    Same here.... I guess all of this boils down to priorities. Some people have it wrong, others have it right, and everyone else falls somewhere in between.

    I've ridden with poor guys that smoked me, and rich guys that smoked me. Moral of the story, I'm slow.

    Wow, this has to be a new low. Guys on an internet forum bashing a successful individual who just happens to mountain bike (which is why you all are here, let's remember). You must be really mad at something.

    No one is bashing the rich guy, you should read the thread and then come back and appologize.

    Does Saris show Bentley's in their application listings?

    I wonder what kind of bike he hauls on it? Probably a lower end Trek. I heard that those racks can scratch your frame. Wouldn't want to scratch a nice bike.




    Seriously though, cool that they have enough passion for the bike that they strap on to a nice car like that.

    Yeah, but a receiver is always on there. I wouldn't want a dumb receiver on my Bentley, especially if I only carried a bike every so often. Same goes for a roof system. That's the beauty of a trunk rack. You can put it on and take it off in just a minute or so. Especially that particular model. Regardless of what kind of car a person has, if they carry a bike infrequently, a trunk rack make sense.

    I would say if someone's strapping a bike rack to their Bentley, they have passion. Why else would they risk scratching up that expensive car to put that bike rack on there?

    And who's to say the guy in the Bentley with the full kit but, contrary to what must be your impeccable physical shape, is not in "what would be described as 'prime physical shape'" didn't find himself with some free time from work and called his executive/personal assistant to bring his bike over to the trail so he could grab a ride before going back to work? At least he's riding a mountain bike and not spending his money to close trails to us, right?

    And, wouldn't you feel like a complete ass if you ran into him again and he just rode away from you on the trails??
    you miss the whole point. chill out and have a sense of humor...

    Look closely - the bike is a rendering and isn't real. It's just overlaid (well) on to an existing photo background.

    Besides, the designer/engineer needs to be slapped for flipping the front shocks (and let the stanchions get nicked by rocks. Also notice that there is no bridge between both stanchions on the fork so expect the front axle to snap the moment you hit the first pebble on the road.

    So much for vaporware. At least make it credible.....

    It is refreshing to see that you have yet to shed that mantle of cluelesness that you defines your life.

    p.s your hypocrisy "ahole 5 posts" earned you extra credit points on the hypocrite scale.

    At least you are consistently a blathering tool rather than an inconsistency blathering tool.

    (cue rambling semi-intelligible response from the non-riding poser)
    Crapao, i could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and s**t out better ''semi-intelligible' come backs and post than you, so im just gonna sit back and let your words do all the talkin champion,

    I need to do a better job at posting. I didn't mean to be taken seriously, I was just trying to inject a little humor. Hence the smiley and the last line starting with "seriously".

    Your points are correct. But you have to admit, it is unusual to see a very high end car with a strap-on trunk rack.

    It's all good.

    I'm choosing to ignore Krapao as he is obviously a troll by the nonsense posts.

    I would never drive a car like that no matter how much money I had, but I do find it a little bit relieving when someone who spends like that can still appreciate bikes. Or more likely... his kid rides bikes. But I'll try to stay optimistic.
