    Sad but True

    Check out the guy riding his 'road' bike, then scroll down and check out the sad-sacks lugging their Turners down the same slope.

    Sorry - had to be done.

    Cross bikes rule. No better way to humble a group of MTBers in than pass them on a downhill with a ridgid fork and drop bars. Do it in a skinsuit to cats in full pads, and it's even more core.

    Think this was posted already--the guy who took the picture said the cross bike didn't make it . . . sorry to spoil the fun.

    I'll see if I can't find the link.

    But agreed, cross bikes do rule.

    Yeah, I was wondering if the Turner dudes were walking because the trail was slippery with CX guy's blood. Facial trauma fu@ks up the trail something awful.

    I'm actually surprised the CX rider doesn't need suspension to handle the size of his sack.

    Wait a second!!!!

    I thought slack angles and more travel would turn me into Myles Rockwell!

    No?

    How about a QP of Northern Lights?

    Would that work?

    Too funny. Can someone explain to me why they're carrying their bikes? I'm hoping these guys were just ibike demo riders and not actual "homers". If so, my image of you guys tearing up the trails has been shattered forever.

    they're actually carrying their bikes because the dude on the rigid is lying in a heap on the bottom of the trail...and they don't want to accidentally run him over...or run over an EMT...

    homers are not only awesome riders, but they're all about consideration for the other riders around them...even the ones who accidentally fall off the road and end up on their trails...
