    That one sucks. I also hate the CHUNK of throwing my chain off...makes me want to go SS sometimes. But I love being able to shift to a higher gear if I need to ride at something faster...

    yeah, to go along with yours, which sucks.... would have to be wind... I hate cross-winds, although when I'm not on my bike I like it.... or, just to hear "snow" in the weather forecast... I like snow, but just not this riduculous muddy and cold transition phase in between fall and full on winter...

    or when riding random college campuses, to hear some idiot "frat" boy yell out,
    "hey, pop a wheelie for me on your little bike..."
    yeah... I'll pop a seat-post into your head, you hollister cover-boy wanna be....
    (on that note, anybody seen "Borat" yet? and hear about how those douche-bag college kids are trying to sue the movie producers now??? All pledge allegiance to the "SUE"nited States of America...)

    I don't mind snow in the forecast so much...but then again, I work in the snowboard industry. She is my first love...although I do enjoy 2 wheeled contraptions nearly as much.

    Very insightful. But when you're riding a bike, you're outside, and it doesn't smell too bad outside now does it?

    Yep, the "pshhhhh" pisses me off. So, does any sound from my bike. And I really hate the sound of no beer when I reach into the bag of ice...

    When you're just pedaling along and you realize that the barely perceptible scratching noise is your slightly bent disc rotor. And it won't stop until you stop...

    The sound of sand rubbing against or rim and (if your poor like me and need brakes) your cantilever brakes.
    The clicking of your shifter but no clank from your derailer (switching gears).
    The chain hitting the frame.
    "psshhhh" Is a must.
    Idk, theres tons that piss me off sometimes

    Any bike noises will ALWAYS rate second to the terrible sound you when you break a bone. I spiral fractured my tibia a few years back (not riding actually) and I will never forget hearing that sickening snap. I will take brake-rub or flat sounds over broken bones any day!

    p.s. The video was uninspiring, repetitious, and not very interesting. But at least he took the time to make one, unlike so many other folks.

    not trying to sound like a hardazz here, but If it came down to it, I'd much rather break a bone then snap a ligament... bones heal and grow back, ligaments don't.
    that said, I completely agree with you.

    and brake rub isn't that bad... I like it when my hopes get really wet and sandy, then get really loud - they make different frequencies, so I can make songs while bombing downhills out in the woods...

    The best one I've ever heard is from a soccer-mom, "GET OUT OF THE STREET YOU STUPID SH!T! THE ROAD IS NOT FOR GODD@MN BIKES!" I wasn't even in the road, I was manualing on the median.

    Hearing the rim smack the ground sucks.

    Hearing the popping from my left pedal because the bearings are going south also sucks.

    Noisy brakes. Especially howling.

    I just remembered one really annoying noise, Marzocchi Dirtjumper forks, and the classic "thunk" they make when topping out.

    Ya i noticed that with my friend's bikes. Is there other forks that does that or is it typically only with DJ series?

    it's not the DJ series forks, it's the super low end forks with no rebound damping...

    Whenever I land hard on concrete, my frame makes a thunk noise I can feel up in my wrists.

    my least favorite? sounds (to me) exactly like a frito chip cracking... means in about 10 seconds i'll be laying on my side popping me left knee back in place... followed by two days of limping. when i was 13, riding my bmx to get a magazine: a lady ran a red light, hit me dead on at ~40mph. that was 21 years ago, and the knee still isnt right. hurt it in a few motorcycle accidents, too.

    second to least favorite: almost the same sound, but add some sloshing water-like noise to it... means my right shoulder just came out, and i'll be doing the whole "laying on my side (painfully) popping [whatever appendage just came out] back in" thing. actually more painful than the knee... but i can at least ride home with the shoulder. knee i can't ride home... or walk home...

    and the torn soft tissue thing: damned things never heal right. 16 years ago i tore my left achillies tendon. it usually is at least mildly painful... takes 10 minutes of streching before any use of it, mornings are a *****... and it gets hurt again so easily. had scar tissue removed twice already, might be about time for more...

    as far as bike sounds: on a former XC bike... uphill, pumping hard, slight sound that was the chain derailing... meant my package was about to (at best) graze the top tube.

    sure, super low end forks .....mostly by zocchi make that noise...even the 500 dollar DJ 1 makes that noize. my (worth new) stance static has never made noise (ecept for the cool squish noise from the fluid flow dampening)

    Keep em coming.


    Another sound I hate is total silence. It means I'm not riding my bike, that it's in my room with me, and that I won't be able to ride until the very end of march(or maybe even later).
