    What's a HOMER

    Just wondering, 'cause I see the term thrown around a lot on this forum. I get the impression that Homer is a derogatory term for a Turner rider, but what's the significance? Is just a cool jab from the Ventanaphiles, or does the whole MTB community get to riff on them thus?

    Ahh yes...

    I see. Thanks for the link. I was gonna say that I never hear the term "Homer" used about a Ventanaphile, but that's probably because: 1) I'm a newbee and have not been looking hard/long enough, or 2) I'm mostly on the Ventana forum, so of course I'd have to go over to the Turner forum to hear them talking about "Ventana Homers"...

    OT: In all honesty, the Homers on the Turner forum are quite helpful when it comes to technical questions. JC, CC, and others can be quite helpful if you have a technical question, I generally post questions there first, rather than the 29er board.

    Having said that, the S/N ratio does tend to be fairly low sometimes (as it does on the 29er board), lots of inside jokes, baiting Fo Chizzle. . etc . . you get the idear.
