    Word. I put on a clean t-shirt yesterday, and something inside the shirt immediately bit my back. I had a 6" diameter red bump, with red tendrils radiating out from it. It was dramatic and itchy. I now distrust my clothes.

    RANT: It's "set foot" and not "step foot". It makes me want to stab a hobo.

    I'm sick and tired of the greed and high prices of freakin bicycle crap, and twenty five hundred dollar aluminum frames. For me it's a matter of principal. "Bite-me"

    I do feel better, Thank you op.

    It annoys me when people give advice and suggestions when they have no experience with a product or any idea about what they're talking about.

    It's even worse when people believe them.

    Good thread, btw. This should be interesting

    I wish I was either taller of shorter - being an in-between size makes for agonizing purchase choices. :-P

    Intensely dislike it when asked "which bike, a, b or c?" those doinks who say "haven't ridden a or b but you should buy c because I have one and it's a great bike!"

    Two things.
    AMEN on the bug bites. I hate em'. On one part of the trail I ride, mosquitos come at you from every direction and it gets worse and worse the further you travel. And when I'm stubborn and want to complete the whole trail, I go through it and when I reach this incline, bugs just fly in your mouth and nose. Very disturbing if you ask me, plus it hurts. Alot.

    Also, there are some idiotic kids on my local trails that like to throw glass around. There are some sections that have the majority of glass, but there still are parts that have a few shards sticking up. Luckily, I haven't had and tubes popping (which seems crazy because of all the glass there is). I talked to the staff that maintenance the trail and they did not clean it. Thinking of bringing a rake the next time I go down.

    I love biking but whine and complain about my gear instead of simply enjoying the ride...

    People that opine on current events that can't tell their ***hole from their elbow. And swallowing bugs. Makes me almost vomit every single time.

    Trail braids.

    If the multitude of riders that established the singletrack could make that corner and you cannot, it does not mean you have suddenly found a better route.

    It means you suck.

    I only complain about the things I have control over. Anything else is just drama.

    This being so stated, on with the business at hand.

    I may be the biggest klutz on Earth! DAMMIT!!!
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    I really hate it when there are lazy d-bag construction workers causing a major traffic jam on the street when there was nothing wrong with the street at all.

    This scene sums everything up perfectly. (Best movie scene in film history)
