    The 2019 "Knock that sh*t off" Thread

    I've seen this done on other hobby forums and it's pretty fun. Basically, if something within the culture is driving you crazy feel free to tell everyone here to Knock That Sh*t Off. One sentence responses, I'll start:

    Overuse of words like "gnar" "shred" "stoke" and "send it". Knock that shit off!

    Why do we have to complicate things by having a culture? Can't we just ride bikes and slap hands?

    Why do the animals in the woods like to poop on the top of the big rocks on the trails? I see that all the time, and quite often it is distracting enough that it will mess up my line. As a courtesy to the other riders, I usually stop, and knock that $hit off.

    Have rode. Feel nauseous. Jealous of friend's bike. Invest in upgrades. Weighs in at. Comprised of. Vibration dampening. Tire volume.

    Picking up dog poop and then leaving the bag on the trail.
    Take that sh*t with you!

    To be fair though, this is most likely not done by mtb'ers...
    Is this where I write something witty?

    Arguing about stupid things when you are wrong. Simple, logical truths:
    Tubeless on mountain bikes are superior to tubes
    Brake lever shapes are fine
    Water is wet
    The Earth is round
    Climate change is real
    Bears poop in the woods
    Disc brakes are a better mtb application than any rim brake
    Vaccinate your kids

    These kinds of things are non-negotiable, logical, irrefutable facts. Stop acting like your know better with conspiracy theories and absurd anecdotes.

    Sounds like you just don't have gnar to shred so you have a hard time getting the stoke up enough to send it.

    I started saying those things in an ironic sense, now I just don't know anymore.

    I went to Angelfire last spring and seriously about jammed a butter knife in my ear. It's almost like they require you to say "yah bruh, let's go shred the gnar" before they will let you on the lift.

    "Water is wet", ponder this: Ice

    The earth is...more accurately described as an ellipsoid.

    Climate? Sure it's changing. What can be done and what effect(s) actions are likely to have certainly need to be argued.

    "Vaccinate your kids" is neither truth, nor fact. It is a statement.

    People can knock that schitt off...or not, whatever.

    Nothing works anyways. 99% of the hikers and runners I come up behind these days have Imagine Dragons blaring in their ears so loud that they couldn't hear you if you blew an air horn.

    I wouldn't normally participate in a thread like this, but this one really has me pi$$ed off.

    Down Country, that's nothing but a stupid term Mike Levy is trying to get caught on and the industry is loving another marketing term they can try to sell people on, enough with the stupid names for a mountain bike, Knock that $hit off!!!!!

    Lol, I wasn't 100% sure what Downcountry was until I read about the new Salsa Spearfish. Turns out my Kona Hei Hei CR/DL has been Downcountry all along, who knew? I just call it modern XC.

    Christ... I wasn't aware of Down Country until now. So they basically changed the name of Trail bikes to sound more spiffy? I hate the mtb industry...

    It can get old when people use it with a straight face, but myself and all my friends use it knowing it sounds corny as hell and usually throw out a dumb smile and a 'shaka' to make it even more over the top. I grew up skateboarding, snowboarding, riding BMX, etc. though so it's not terribly far off from my normal way of talking.

    I'd say it's equally annoying when someone wants to talk in a super dry, technical fashion... They're bikes FFS, just go ride and smile.

    Not nearly as bad as prolly and tryna, but there are others. Lazy speech in general is irritating. We're becoming a barely literate culture and it's embarrassing.

    "Downcountry" actually means towards the coastlines or periphery of an area (unless you go by the NSFW Urban Dictionary definition ). Someone's using it to refer to generalized trail riding now?

    I had to look it up, and they basically describe it as a "XC bike with better descending abilities"... SO ITS A TRAIL BIKE.

    From someone who speaks a couple of languages, I can tell you that English is still spoken and written pretty well. Yes, you have some lazy words, but it's not as bad as many think. I can't say the same about Ghetto.

    It does drive me nuts though when people can't learn to spell the most basic everyday words.


    P.S. Is it time to move this thread yet?

    The same words used in mountain bike reviews for every product. Supple, vibration dampening, and how we never see a bad product review. I know some products aren't worth my money.

    Read 3 different articles today, and all 3 of them used the word "rowdy" about 500 times each.

    Never. I will always laugh.

    I do hate how all reviews are "awesome" there are plenty of things that suck.

    Rowdy for me and rowdy for someone else is completely subjective.

    Ask someone who rides downhill if my trails are rowdy? Of course not

    Ask most people who jra if they are. "Every time i go mounain biking after this it is going to feel like a bike path."

    However you slice it, the term “rowdy” sounds like what a 6th grade boy would describe something.

    Rowdy is probably my favorite MTB term. I also have a distant cousin named Rowdy. He's a rowdy dude.

    First off, I can say very definitively it is not. If anything they'd say that's a term used by grumpy old people to describe their behavior.

    Second, like it or not the terms that 6th graders are using now will be mainstream in a few years. Always blows my mind, but somehow despite being so young they are more on top of current pop culture than most 30 year olds - including myself.

    Reminds me of a ride last year with a friend. We roll up to a trail intersection where a two-way trail meets up with a segment of down-hill directional trail. There are about 15 massive skid marks where downhill traffic enters the intersection.

    So, as we roll through and start climbing the next trail segment I yell over my shoulder to my friend in a REALLY loud mocking voice "Duuuuuuuuuude......did you see that skid mark bro!!!???!!!! It was soooooo gnaaarrrly bro!!!!!!!!! Bro, it was sooooo siiiiiiiiiick bro"

    Just then I look up and there's a lady on an e-bike coming around the corner looking at me like dafuq is wrong with you?????????

    My niece is an HR "professional". Awhile back, she was writing a policy statement of some kind for her organization and she wrote "should of" in the body of the text, instead of "should've" or "should have". I see this all the time and it drives me nuts, especially in a formal document of any kind.

    KTSO!
