I'd love to ride bike paths. Give me 4 paths from my side of town that wind through the countryside. One needs to be 35 miles, one at 45 miles, one at 55, 65, and an 80 miler....no speed limit. I'd stay mostly off the roads then.
This mountain biker rides about 50/50 but spends 95% of his time on RBR. Many of the MTBR poasters are teenage wankers trying to show off their testosterone. I go there only for info and to check out the Yeti forums. I'll sit here with the roadies showing off our shaved legs & lycra.
I occasionally pose as a conservationist over there and post on how
mountain bikes are chewing up the trails just to incite the kids.I must
admit they have us beat with the pictorials on Passion as opposed to
Podium Girls, where strangely the tables are turned and we are kind of
immature or chauvanistic.
God forbid someone with knobby tires has an opinion
I think some of their points are valid. Just because they're posting on the "wrong" bicycle forum, dealing with the "wrong" kind of bicycle (despite the number of commuters who ride mtbs)... yeah, you're all correct. Screw em, they know nothing.
