    What is Kona Riding?

    I haven't been checking in to the forums much lately. Is Kona still riding the Raleigh? His signature leads me to believe he isn't.

    Really? Do you just wanna make someone feel bad? I've learned enough about you to know that it's not your style to be concerned so?
    Think you'd get more responses if the thread was titled "How many members wish danhasdrums would go away?"
    Just sayin'

    More trolling from the op. One vote for danhasdrums to go away. Why don't you just pm him instead of making a nuisance and spectacle of yourself? And yes it was me that neg repped you, you earned it.

    Why does it matter what anyone is riding? If he's riding a fvcking huffy what does it matter to you? How does it affect your life?

    Shouldn't you be taking care of blue balls?
    Stay away from the green balls. Something wrong there and I don't think you want what they have.

    "I know, everybody funny, now you funny too"

    When someone can laugh at themselves AND make jokes at others that's funny. When someone gets defensive, righteous and starts name calling and accusing people of whatever when they are the bunt of someones humor, or even for disagreeing with them that's not a funny person, that's a person lacking confidence but whatever. I think I see your point, like when people say they feel funny right before a heart attack right?

    Thank you but you owe me no explanation. You can like whatever you like, I'm cool with that and I'm cool with you. FWIW I enjoy your input around here. I also have no "beef", just call it as i see it is all.

    Didn't people send him money and parts to fix that bike up?
    I'm just trying to decide if my over/under pick of 6-7 weeks was accurate. I started a poll on the site where we could pick how long he'd last with that bike and I got suspended for the infraction for "insulting another member."

    I don't care what anyone rides.
    What I find funny is that he got one of his many bikes that he's had. He complained about his new ride and how it doesn't work well, people on the forum started to take a collection of parts and money for him and I started to make fun of them for building up his bike that he will eventually get rid of anyway (has he had any bike for more than 4 months?). I got banned for "insulting another member" and the whole event played out exactly as I expected it would. Although it seems that Kona only got a new chain out of the whole collection. I'm just trying to get some legs out of the banning that I received since I didn't actually insult any other member and in the end I was completely correct about how it would all play out.
    I ride a 30 pound hardtail with 26 inch wheels. I'm the last person that would display snobbery over what anyone rides and would have been real happy to learn that Kona was still riding his Raleigh.

    Wow - Five neg reps for me on this thread...
    Point of this thread is not to make fun of Kona, it's to make fun of all the people who took their own time, money and parts to take up a collection for this guy so that he could fix up his bike, which he would just sell. And predictably. There some very highly sensitive MTBers. I imagine many of you just sit around all day crying while watching Oprah episodes... Lighten up a little and stop taking things so seriously. The way you guys are protecting Kona (from what, I don't even know) is strange.

    I believe the randomness in rules and banning is what makes it fun and interesting. The mods play russian roulette with the rules and they make sure never to offend the peanut gallery. Poke fun at a user who buys/sells bikes repeatedly at a financial loss and get suspended for "insulting another member" while being called insensitive and being told that you have no "honor," but follow a poster around who posts many informative and helpful posts 80% of the time and call them a troll over and over while having an unhealthy obsession with one particular person and win over the hearts of a few fellow forum members while passing under the mod radar... Business as usual and that's why I don't bother posting much here... It seems some riders fell off their bikes and got sticks lodged way up their intestines and they just can't seem to remove them...
