    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    Huckers and jibbers might be appropriate title for skiboarding snowboarding, but even then it would be stupid and out of date (IMO).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."

    How about, "Too cool for BMX"

    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 went to the doctor and told him "hey doc, it hurts when I go like this" and the doc said "Does the rear feel too soft?"

    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:

    [SIZE=3]Urban/DJ/Park[/SIZE]
    The Art of Concrete and Dirt

    or

    [SIZE=3]Urban/DJ/Park[/SIZE]
    Blood, Sweat, and Shovels
