    Signs you’re a true FR/DHer…

    Signs you’re a true FR/DHer…

    1. Within a matter of a few seconds, you’ll find simular posts here on MTBR.
    2. Funky looking scars on your shins, look a lot like a pedal pegs or chain rings.
    3. You slow down when you see a pile of lumber on the side of the road.
    4. Tatoo’s with bike related drawings.
    5. You car is worth less than your bike (oldie but goodie).
    6. Driving around, you often say to yourself, “l could drop that”.
    7. You instinctively notice other cars with bike racks and you look to see what is hanging from them.
    8. When it’s nice out, you’re wishing you didn’t have to work and you know darn well why.
    9. While doing the deed with the GF, wife, etc…..LEG CRAMP!!!
    10. Your credit card statements show nothing but bike related transactions.
    11. You know that a G Spot is a bike, not something you’re looking for on a woman.
    12. Speaking of spot, you can spot make-model-age of nearly any FR/DH bike from hundreds of yards away.
    13. You or one of your buds have driven into a garage with bike/s on the roof rack.
    14. Your biking is a constant source of friction with your parents, wife, GF, etc…
    15. "l will be back in two hours, l promise" actually means more like four or five.
    16. The trunk of your car looks like something you’d see in a “mob” movie: shovel, pick, saw, rope, signs of dirt…
    17. There’s a muddy bike sitting in your living room.
    18. You’ll rip the shizicks outta your bike when you’re riding it but you’re gentle as when you’re handling a baby when you’re just cleaning your bike or pulling it off the roof rack

    Anyway, to keep going (there were lots of good ones in that previous one already):

    1. you retire your 29" handlebars from your DH rig, to put on your XC rig (which has 160mm of travel and weighs 35lbs...). You secretely wonder if they may be too narrow though?

    2. you swap bikes to try your friend's new AM rig down your favorite local DH trail, pinchflatting twice 300 yards later. You wonder what's wrong with your friend's new tires?

    3. you own 2 seatposts: one for DH days, and one for pedalling your DH bike to the shop to get milk.

    4. if you have to go on a XC ride with GF/family members/your boss, you still go in your skater lid (and you hope you won't forget your second seatpost from point 3).

    I don't think in dollars anymore-

    I'll look at a new flat panel Panasonic Led TV and think,,, " Man, I could buy a new Demo 8 frame and fork fork for the price of that", or that pair of annaversary earrings for my wife cost the same as a new Totem.......

    I like this one. I'm loosing money by not buying this used frame......
    I'm GNARcissistic

    Isn't this a clone of the exact same thread that appeared a year ago. Oh well, I'll play along.

    When you ride XC your other friends are in the lead, but once the climb is over they clear a path for you.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    21. You know all too well, the meaning of "sticking it", "Going Postal", "Cased that one" and many of the other catch phrases.

    That also applies at the top of the shuttle to that gnarly run that you always freak out over...or when you arrive at the jumps....

    When your wife\ GF catches you checking out another girl and you tell her you was checking out her bike (and this time your actually not lying)

    You check out other bikes like you check out other girls.
