    Sorry ?

    Hey guys, I thought I have been getting some pretty angry phone calls/IMs/PMs and flamed on

    MTBR.

    Just thought I would issue an apology ? I was just really frusterated when I posted the

    article regarding all my Zocchi forks. I figured out why my Z.1 never got sent in, it got to

    the wrong adress, and then eventually returned to my house today. I dont know how, just some

    wierd issue. I will be sending my 07 Z.1 Sport in again soon. maybe Marzocchi will warrenty

    this one since its so new.

    just a lot of wierd posts of mine came up, I was haveing like a flame day. and a lot of

    people called me out on it. I wasnt really trying to be biased. and I was being really

    sarcastic most of the time, but a lot of people didnt realize this. an issue would be the

    whole "ride a DH bike in the skatepark, it will make you so much better" I was being

    sarcastic, but at the same time I do believe in that a little, because most of the guys

    around here rip up the skateparks on DH hardtails. and I have reciently joined that group.

    there was a ton of name calling (not from me) but i'll let it slide a little. I still have a

    bit of a grudge of things said. a lot of people think that i'm "stupid" or like post

    "pointless advice" but the deal is, I do work at a bike shop, I'm just going off the

    experience that I have had in the shop ...if it doesnt match yours ..does that mean I'm

    wrong ?

    I think I let a few people down, and this has turned into a huge kinda flame war reciently.

    a lot of people IMing me saying this about this person. or that. a lot of people are pro my

    advide, others are against it (unfortunatly for me those pro of it dont speak out too much

    )

    just in a like rant mood again, just not a negative rant mood.

    in the 1200 or something posts I've made, I believe that atleast 40% of them are good advice

    :thumsup:

    BUT. I will by request by a few friends say and I quote anonamous "i didnt think u were an

    ass anymore than anyone else on there" wich I think is true (you know who you are) so I'm

    willing to forgive. I know some of you REALLY hate me. but whatev, its just a forum

    guys/gals.

    sorry guys, that this all got out of hand.

    I missed that one two. I can say t_fr has some great advise to many riders out there, sometimes we think different about something but we are different also. What someons personal oppinion or experience is theirs & sometimes others if we all agreed & did the same thing life would be very boorrriinnggg. Stay cool bro

    Not flaming, but if it was sarcasm, why did you so stubbornly and consistently b!tch at me? You kept telling me how you just "proved me wrong."

    A real man may come out and admit his faults, but sometimes he's just covering his own @ss. I'm not sure what to make of it.

    Boozz has a good way of bringing out the emo in us, then you have to wake up so you can start again.

    You are entitled to your opinion and I definitely don't hold a grudge agaisnt you just because you have had bad experience with zocchi Don't worry about it too much todd, it's just the internet after all.

    you know what....it just steers the pot......you have been around for a while, so you didn't need to say a thing.......sometimes things happen and we go off half-cocked

    anyway thanks for just stating an apology but no harm done anyway

    believe me.......you could never be worse then me

    so flame away on Shiver like WCH (suppose to be friend) and Zachdank (bro from the north)
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    No need to apologize..

    So you had some bad luck with the big M.. Everybody else needs to get over it. For some reason rants bring out alot of wonderful thoughts.. We all need to remember how lucky we are to not have been born in North Korea... Think about it.
