    Why are we labeled here as "Huckers and Jibbers"???

    yeah, read the thread title - why the hel! does the Urban/DJ/Park forum label us as "huckers and jibbers"??? who wrote this? somebody from the 29'er forum?
    does anybody else feel the same way?
    "hucker" sounds like a cheesy over used FR term
    and "jibber" well, I just don't know, I've used it much more in the snowboarding sense than whenever riding street on my bike.

    so why are we labeled this way?? Other not-knowing groms or outside viewers might actually start referring to us as just this, unless we get it changed... who is the moderator for this forum anyway, I've asked in other threads, but with absolutely no reply! just like the stupid "DH bike for urban" Sticky, why the hell is that still up there?

    so, anyway, what should be there instead? I vote for just straight up, "the badmammajammas of mtbr!" haha, or the "radskidders" or "pop&locker hop-trotters" maybe even, "reading the manual won't tell you how"...
    let's hear what you got!

    at least something reasonable, like "street-shredders and dirt diggers" or something like that.

    the only time i used "jibber" in a sentence was when talking about fly fishing.... (that was also the day i realized i needed to move out of the sticks and back to the city)

    still dont know what the hell it means when about bikes...

    i totally agree here....i have noticed the whole "huckers and jibbers" thing and it doesn't portray DJ/Street/Park riding at all...should atleast be something better thought out. also i would like to know who the moderator for this forum is as well? i looked at the list of the moderators a few weeks ago and noticed that unless im missing something...there isn't one for this forum. i dont know if that is possible but there was no listing for it that i saw.

    so yes i agree...this forum does need more attention i think. there are tons of awesome things going on here that should be recognized. i dig MTBR, its the only forum site that i spend anytime on really...but there needs to be some more attention here..

    I am with you 100%.

    Huckers and jibbers might be appropriate title for <strike>skiboarding</strike> snowboarding, but even then it would be stupid and out of date (IMO). Oh well, at least we have a K2 forum!

    Anyways... see you suckas later. I am going to go an huck some loading docks. Maybe jib a thing or two along the way.

    Why not go "We're the guys with large trench coats offering you candy?"

    No, maybe something better like "Those who don't always ride rubber side down."

    I'm not into the title either.....
    maybe the "gravity defyers" or "the MTBR air force".....
    I can think of nothing else kinda gay that fits
    It should be WAY BIGGER John I'm so out of shape!

    click on "classic forums" above, and go to the listings of forums on mtbr, then look at the little sub-title under the Urban/DJ/Park in the big list of forums... says "huckers and jibbers here." underneath the bigger "Urban/DJ/Park" title. where we got unvoluntarily labeled by someone who created this forum.
    under DH/FR it just says sponsors underneath...

    that's what I'm sayin', we most def' didn't label ourselves like that...


    we are like the minority of MTBR... fight the power, the man is trying to label us! raise your fist and march around!



    well, i am cheesy and overused.....
    no intent to stereotype there.. but hey, nothin' wrong with gettin' moldy or blown out - hahaha, well, now that I read that, unless you're talkin' about your gf... whoa

    LOL! How about... "Mountain bike riders that actually have skill."

    Or, "Riders closer in DNA to skateboarders than to roadies."

    I had several ideas, but as I was typing them they just started to sound for the lack of a better word, gay. So, I'm going with the badmammajammas of mtbr.

    If I was the one writing the titles, I would look something like this:

    Urban/DJ/Park
    The Art of Concrete and Dirt

    or

    Urban/DJ/Park
    Blood, Sweat, and Shovels

    oh hey, very nice!


    a little long, but another I just came up with, "shred is our religion, flow is our faith, 2 wheels are our tools of prayer, cops ban us from our temples, to keep us out of their hair..."


    you know, now that I think about it, I don't care much for "Urban" either, but I'm not gonna get picky. I use "Street" more, and "urban" sounds to me more like "urban commuting" or riding a fixie messenger bike... maybe it's just me...

    jib was coined for mountain bikers by thor wixom. who i feel made an ass out of him self when he tried to explain why he started calling it jibbing. he explains that he feels what we ride (street and such) is somethign new and differnt and there for should have a new and unique name. therefore he stole the name off of something already in exsistence, from snowboarding....pretty new and original there Thor...

    i believe hucking orginally got stuck wiht us from the idiots back in the day whose idea of urban was throwing them selves down stairs and off ledges. in really nasty not fuild fashions. since then we've kinda had that image/the name has stuck. i dont like it. hucking has always been drops and sh!t of that nautre, jibbing has always been a dumb term that i'm pissed got thrown in to our world. riding street is riding street, urban works too, if you dont understand what i mean when i say i ride street, well then i dont really care. dirt jumping is dirt jumping, plain and simple, very self explainitory.

    Hucking is a good word but in my mind is requires some type of a kicker and is almost exclusively found in the backwoods snow / dirt. That is my interpretation anyways. The term never enters my mind on concrete.

    Alright, now here's a plan!

    apparantly NO admin's or Mod's have noticed anything here yet... so no attention is being payed to our little "ghetto" of mtbr, as usual. We are the Back alley boys/girls, growin' up hard, we must be taken down hard!
    So, in order to draw them into the chaos and anarchy that is the urban/dj/park forum, we must take it to the extreme!
    Everyone must simultaneously make up 3 pointless threads that have nothing to do with anything, are completely and shamefully vulgar and profane, and randomly show pictures of classic tennis players and victorian oil lamps! (according to my colleague who I've hired for this stragety, and his advanced calculations, this should equal out to approx. 12 threads, just enough throw off the servers!) This in return may get us all reported to a Mod! Or in the case that our immensly overloaded 12 threads goes unnoticed, we can use a decoy made-up screen name to report and draw attention... Once the admin's/mod's come into the slum here that we call home, we all break loose, repeating the same thing in every forum room on the board!!! muahahaha! We don't have the numbers to fight the power, but with the man coming down aimed on one area alone, we can fight with good-timing and tactics!
    stretch your fingers rippers and shredders, cuz' the keyboard goes clickety-clack when the time comes to take this board back! cock my glock, and pop, pop, pop! Oh no wait, that was a different forum, sorry for the mix-up...

    DOWN WITH THE MISREPRESENTATION AND DISCRIMINATION OF OUR PEOPLE! WE WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT SOCIETY AS LABELING US AS HUCKER NOR JIBBER!!


    yeah, you know, either that or we could just find a moderator and ask nicely.




    (please don't do anything instructed above. if you can't tell, it's just a joke, and I don't want to get banned. haha...)

    He refers to Urban MTB as Jibbing, this is an old old thread. Before the urban park dj forum. Look at the title.

    but due to the lack of patent laws, all of their "jib" power was sold off in cheap rip-off copies, and they could not claim it as their own. quite a tragic story...
