Poll

the real reason I am a mountain biker is

I ride over sand and roots all the time and I am eXtreme
I make fun of people that ride mostly on road but actually ride real mountains allthough I never have been to any actualy mountain trails
my dual suspension bike is sweet on the Upper Tampa Bay Trail
I pay membership to a mountain bike club and post on a mountain bike forum...allthough I never had really ridden in the mountains
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
FACTORe is my hero

HAHAHA  man, these guys give you * because you get bent out of shape when they do.  You know you ride off-road, so who cares what these guys think.

I am a mountain biker because I'm way too fat to be a roadie  :-[

I thought this might be a cool thread by the title, I was wrong.  Why such a hostile poll?  Are you "calling people out" as posers or something?  That's what it sounds like.

Hey ProEdge, don't fall for it.  He's just trying to overtake your "smite" to "applaud" ratio!   ;D

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.
Part time mountain biker, full time roadie smiter.
