    NICKNAMES for full suspension & gear users

    Post nicknames for full suspension mountain bike riders and people who use multiple gears on their mountain bike. I need this for the people I ride with.

    I don't think OP is looking for derogatory comments to yell at ever geared rider he passes.

    I read the post as to kid his buddies with while waiting for them at the top of a hill.

    I personally would try to come up with something referencing the clanging of the chain on a seat stay. Maybe "bob" or "bobber" for the FS folks?

    That's not very nice.

    The only reason to ride with gears and suspension is because you're old and frail, and we shouldn't poke fun at those people.

    Nancy boys. But here in Oz, we trade insults regularly, so we're used to getting it thrown back at us. Just make sure you stay in front.

    Or make fun of a rider who shows up in a RangeRover with the 22" bling wheels, Sierra Club, Coexsist, and Do No Harm stickers on the bumper, is outfitted in the latest fashion spandex, $250. helmet, $200. glasses, latest Camelback with iPhone sleeve, and riding the new, never scratched (and never crashed) fully who is free to give worthless advice. Give me the rider on a Monocog or a 26" beater conversion, dressed like he left his construction job (think carhart) , climbs like a pro, and keeps a six of Pale Ale in the battered cooler.

    HEY!!
    nothing wrong with dumping lots of coin on your dream bike only to have a second child and have your "weekend rides" get cut down to a SS-able hour or so instead of the full-gears-requiring epics...

    I try not to talk to anyone on a bike, even if they are in my group. Chances are they have some bike related comment to make to me. In such events I like to hand them my business card with my MTBR name on it and say:

    "On the trail we ride. Click 'Start New Thread' for any comments. If we do all our talking here on the trail, then I will have nothing to do at my work tomorrow."

    I call my buddies Gearies. They think I'm stupid...until their drivetrain/pivot/hydro brakes have problems on the trail.

    I just like to hang out with my "**** don't break" singlespeed.

    you're assuming we ride with others
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I have no hate for those on fs or geared bikes. Although I do enjoy the reaction when they see me on a ss rigid going down the exact same trails they did on their 5+ inch travel bikes.

    Wtf??

    I have riding onespeeds for over 10 years now. I mostly look on MTBR for news about the riding COMUNITY in my area. Once in a while I pop on over to the SS forum, and most of the time I find something really lame. I am amazed at how many people think they are "better than" just because the ride onespeed bikes, or even more "better than" if they ride fully rigid or fixed. You guys need to get over yourselves and just shut up and ride. Who cares about you and your bike? NOBODY but you.

    You want some french cries with that whamburger?

    So you are a lurker and stopped in to say you're better than us because you don't tell people you are better than them?? Get a clue bro.

    Read the whole thread, most guys here agree, anyone on a bike is a comrade.

    u go bro, I like riding ugly with my work boots, federov hockey shirt,ripped sweat pants, bad breath, and a 3 day old beard. lololhelps to keep the bugs away in summer. all kidding aside, i enjoy seeing all riders out there, either on a 5k cannondale, or a 3 humdred buck outcast like mine. its all good, and since we r all on the bottom of the food chain, when it comes to trail availability, it would most certainly beehoove us 2 all get along. ride on, bros, ride on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Way to misspell the only word in all caps dude. It's "community" bro, and no one ever said we ride bikes. We stare at them from the couch wishing to God we could ride with the likes of you. Way to pump the ego with the "10 years" comment right before you crap on everyone over a perceived attitude. I hope there are some more mountainbikers in whatever seminary you attend. Maybe they're holy enough for you.

    On a local forum (in Finnish, so I'm translating a bit now) people have been wondering if the day's snow conditions are better for the "full rigid" or the "full boinger".

    *** there's more than a few who have a treasured '90s bike and a recent 5" FS bike ***

    you just proved my point. you say I think I'm better than you? You can ride with me anytime you'd like.

    Oh yeah, I wear Carhart and steel toes while in a CAT at work, but I also wear spandex on the bike. I even ride a geared road bike (gasp!) sometimes I ride a bike for transportation. I guess I'd really piss you off If I said I've been riding bikes on trails since 1978. How old are you?

    I'm not sure what all of that meant or where I insulted steel toe shoes. I definitely have no issue with your spandex. I'd prefer you wear clothes when cycling. However, I'm not sure you got the point. The entire thread was full of positive comments about all cyclists with a few others mixed in. You jumped on the negative, pointed out that you ride different bikes, which many of us do, and then condemned an entire forum for being elitists. I merely pointed out a discrepancy between your words and actions. I apologize if you thought I was insulting all CAT driving, FS riding, commuters. I'm 23 by the way. Did they have bikes in 78'? If they did, they definitely hadn't figured out how to take off the derailleurs yet.

    Silence says it all.

    I ride every kind of bike there is- it's all good. But I do enjoy the silent insult you get to hurl by simply riding your SS past some goober huffing and puffing on a bike with more knobs and dials than he knows how to spin, as he struggles to pull his Camelbak hose out of the spokes of his cross chained squishy bike.

    I hope I never become so politically correct as to take people to task for coming up with good insulting nicknames. Having grown up in a mixed cultural environment where friends greet each other with creative insults, I can say with conviction that derogatory nicknames for anyone who's not like you are an integral part of the foundation of this great country. (* insert military parade music here) Mountain biking and insulting nicknames; it's like whine and cheese they just go together
