    Best of the Best

    Ok, I'm sure that those who know me, know I enjoy healthy doses of snack talking and am a fairly thick skinned individual. Considering, thereads from last few days have been thoroughly comical. Having been here for a while I ask, "Best villain of MTBR AZ" and why...?
    I would like to hereby nominate my favorite....Slippin Jimmy for hands throwin vaping style.

    Slippin' Jimmy was definitely pretty good. I'd put Buggy up for nomination. I think he was around in 2014 or 2015. Maybe lasted a few weeks. Sure got under a lot of users skin.

    Looks like I was wrong about the timeframe....more like end of 2011 beginning of 2012...

    Funny, I was thinking about some OG's from this thread the other day. What ever happened to Kaboose, SuLing, DurtGurl, azepicriderandrunner, dirdr and others from the earlier days.

    To answer the OP - LaneDetroitCity lit this place on fire then moved on just like that

    just about everyone moved off to FB groups. All are still around and riding.

    I was going to say Lane as well, though I found him mildly entertaining for a while.

    Last I heard, Lane moved to Florida...although I heard the white creeper van died a long time ago.
    What about his short-lived alter ego, LameDetroitCity?

    That was some fun messing with Acrophobe on his koi pond. Simon told me he was building the pond for this douche bag in VOC, so I went into his Facebook page and got those pictures of the initial construction and it drove him crazy.

    It’s kind of the same relationship I have with the Pillbo guy. It tickles me to see him try to belittle all the progress the the mountain bike community has made making Sedona a World Class destination.

    Where else would you get an inside view of what the history has been of the Sedona mountain bike trail construction and maintenance PROCESS? The whole elbows out trimming process. The building of the Aerie trail. The whole inital accurate mapping process of the popular Sedona mountain bike trails. The reporting of new trails as soon as they were completed to keep up the international interest in visiting Sedona for a mountain bike vacation. The whole Sedrama of the relationship between PP and JB and how they used the CE to adopt more trails than any other District in the USA. It too bad JB couldn�t write a book describing what the PROCESS was like from her POV. Like what she thought when TD came to the ribbon cutting of the newly adopted Special Ed trail. What a Country!

    MrWhlr.

    He may not have burned as brightly as Slippin Jimmy, but that clown did nothing constructive or positive in a single post I ever read of his.
    Don’t modify the trail to match your skills, modify your skills to match the trails.

    No, this is not a thread about how glorious you and your mission of making Sedona the best place to ride in the galaxy. I swear you prob dislocate hour shoulder patting your self on the back. John has anyone ever told you that you are like a child? Self absorbed and can only contribute If you are the center of attention?

    Lane Detroit City, Mr LDC just popped up on the grid in the North Carolina forum. I wonder if he's switched coasts altogether.
