I also thought this was gonna be a cool post giving folks the chance to say why they love being a mountain biker. I did find a category that I fit in though with only slight modification.
I can hit all the hard options at the local used to be a phosphate mine but I have never seen a sustained climb that is longer than 20 feet .........which didn't make me whine like a little baby.
I would like to thank all the forum sheep out there (might be one myself) for helping to keep the forum focused on what we came here for rather than a host of special interest. I still want a section for "Punks with Platforms" though.
